    New ALEOS(TM) Events Reporting Engine for PinPoint X and PinPoint XT
    devices offers comprehensive vehicle sensor monitoring and exception
    reporting
    

    VANCOUVER, Sept. 10 /CNW/ - Sierra Wireless (NASDAQ:   SWIR - TSX: SW)
today announced that ALEOS(TM) embedded intelligence now includes events
reporting capabilities available with the AirLink(TM) PinPoint X and PinPoint
XT mobile gateways. The ALEOS Events Reporting Engine provides PinPoint
customers with real-time event status in the host vehicle, such as "speed
limit threshold crossed," "door ajar," or "siren engaged." It is highly
customizable and can be remotely managed, controlled, and configured through
AceWare(TM) remote management software, giving users the flexibility to tailor
the type and number of data messages sent, when they are sent, and who
receives them, through the use of programmed triggers that allow customers to
set specific information requirements for their PinPoint X and PinPoint XT
mobile gateways.
    The ALEOS Events Reporting Engine improves the responsiveness and
efficiency of PinPoint X and PinPoint XT mobile gateways, by providing time
sensitive information instead of raw data for central processing. Clear,
actionable information is provided as soon as it is available, to facilitate
timely and accurate decision-making by end users or customer applications. In
addition, the Events Reporting Engine allows customers to manage their data
usage better by selecting precisely what data they want delivered, improving
cost and processing efficiency. Critical event and status notifications can be
delivered to multiple destinations using email, SMS and reporting servers.
    "With the Events Reporting Engine, AirLink intelligent devices are now
reporting real-time status and actionable event notifications, instead of just
regularly scheduled raw data," said Andrew Berman, senior vice president and
general manager, Mobile and M2M for Sierra Wireless. "These enhanced
capabilities ensure the time-sensitive information is presented in the right
place, at the precise time needed for better decision making and overall
system efficiency - a critical advantage for customers that rely on real-time
data for their AVL, fleet management, mobile resource management, security, or
public safety applications."

    Robust Intelligence and Device Management

    ALEOS embedded intelligence is available exclusively on the Sierra
Wireless line of AirLink products. Coupled with the AceWare suite of remote
management tools, ALEOS lowers total cost of ownership by simplifying device
setup, provisioning, control, management, and maintenance through extensive
remote configuration and diagnostic capabilities.
    Sierra Wireless will demonstrate the ALEOS Events Reporting Engine at
CTIA Wireless I.T. and Entertainment, held September 10 to 12 in 
San Francisco. Visit our booth at No. 1516 in the M2M Zone for more
