Sierra Wireless Achieves Certification of its 5G Module and MG90 5G Router on T-Mobile

Sierra Wireless announced that its EM9190 5G New Radio (NR) embedded module and the MG90 5G multi-network 5G vehicle router have both been certified to operate on T-Mobile’s 5G network in the United States.

Based on the industry-standard M.2 form factor, the EM9190 is an industrial-grade module that enables OEMs, system integrators, and other companies to integrate secure 5G connectivity into their products. Part of Sierra Wireless’ EM Series of modules, the EM9190 has been designed to connect to 5G networks around the world and also includes an embedded SIM (eSIM) based on GSMA’s embedded SIM specification, eUICC. This eSIM is designed to allow customers to switch networks anytime using carrier-specific profiles, for suitable IoT product deployment.

With this certification, EM9190 customers can commercially deploy networking devices, computing devices and other connected products on T-Mobile’s 5G network for live video streaming, video security, high-definition cloud-based video gaming, extended reality (XR), robotics, and other next generation IoT applications.

Per the company, the AirLink MG90 5G, is the industry’s first multi-network 5G vehicle networking solution, providing  public safety, public transit, utility, and other organizations the mobile connectivity they need for mission-critical first responder, field service, and transit applications. 

The MG90 5G uses the T-Mobile certified Sierra Wireless EM9190 module and takes advantage of T-Mobile’s low band and mid band 5G spectrum to deliver customers broad coverage and high data speeds. Purpose-built for demanding high-speed multi-network vehicle needs, the AirLink MG90 5G delivers user experience, performance, and reliability users need with patented technology.

The MG90 5G enables high-definition applications like remote triage for paramedics, live video streaming for law enforcement, and Wi-Fi services for transit riders. 

The EM9190 and MG90 5G are currently available globally from Sierra Wireless’ global network of partners.
