Customers can build M2M application software once and deploy it in any market worldwide, or seamlessly migrate from 2G to 3G.

Open AT enables easy embedded software development with industry-standard C language programming, combining the world’s first operating system designed for M2M application development with a comprehensive set of software libraries and a powerful, easy-to-use integrated development environment, the Sierra Wireless Developer Studio.

Open AT also provides connectivity with the Sierra Wireless AirVantage M2M Cloud Platform to enable advanced remote device and asset management, as well as subscriber management in collaboration with global network operators.

By enabling customers to embed their application software within the wireless module itself, Open AT has helped hundreds of companies bring M2M solutions to market much more quickly, and at a lower cost, than they would by using separate hardware components. Millions of automotive, smart energy and industrial devices are currently operating on 2G networks with software applications built on Open AT. This powerful framework is now also available to customers developing M2M solutions for 3G networks and market, as well as for customers migrating from 2G to 3G. The 3G Open AT solution is built on Qualcomm chipset solutions.
