No Data Service means the router ships without data service or activation (you can choose to add custom configuration if needed). Standard Activation & Configuration includes activation, a basic device configuration, and the service plan of your choice. Custom Activation & Configuration includes activation and setup according to customer-provided requirements and specifications, and the service plan of your choice.

For pooled plans, if you have multiple devices, your data can be pooled across all of the lines of service - for example, if you have 10 devices, each with a 25MB data plan, you effectively have a pool of 250MB - so if one device uses more than 25MB of data but other devices use less, you won't have to worry about overage charges.

If you choose a service plan here, your pro-rated first month of service will be charged separately when your order ships and future months will be billed automatically to your credit card on the 1st of each month.

The monthly recurring cost for each plan is listed below, along with the per-megabyte or per-gigabyte overage charge you'll be billed if you exceed the monthly limit.

If you would like us to apply any customizations to your router configuration before shipping, you can upload a configuration file (file must be in zip format and less than 1mb) or provide details instructions in the text field.

The AirLink Management Service (ALMS) is a secure cloud-based device management application that makes it easy to deploy, monitor and upgrade any number of wireless devices remotely.

Sierra requires that you purchase a minimum of 5 ALMS licenses. If you only need ALMS for one device, you can purchase 5 licenses for 5 years of service for the one device.
AirLink Management Service (optional) - details
AirLink Support is an additional support option that can be added for one, three or five years.

PREFERRED: Our highest-value offering, Preferred AirLink Support, is developed for customers with large mission-critical applications that need the highest level of support available. Combining responsive customer support with cloud-based network management tools, extended hardware support and on-going enterprise network support, Preferred AirLink Support is a comprehensive offering delivered by Sierra Wireless’s experts.

CLASSIC: Classic AirLink Support delivers the same high-level of customer support and access to the same network management tools as Preferred AirLink Support, but is designed for organizations that have smaller, less complex environments, or don’t require 24/7 access or extended hardware support. Delivered by the same team of Sierra Wireless experts, AirLink Support Classic delivers exceptional value.
AirLink Support (optional) - details
Site Survey includes evaluation of signal coverage to determine optimal router placement and antenna/cabling requirements. Installation services cover all device, wiring, and antenna installation, configuration, and service confirmation. Same Day combines both activities into one site visit. Pricing for installation and site survey visits vary depending on building, layout, work needed, etc. Orbcomm staff will contact you to discuss pricing and scheduling.

BEST-IN-CLASS REMOTE MANAGEMENT The Raven RV50 can be remotely managed by AirLink Management Service (ALMS)—the cloud management solution ranked “best-in-class” by ABI Research. ALMS supports over-the-air device registration, configuration and software updates. Variables such as signal strength, network technology, location, temperature and voltage can be remotely monitored to help maintain connectivity. Dashboards display up-to-date views of the entire deployment, and custom reports can be set-up to monitor critical events and prevent downtime.

INSTANT INTEGRATION The Raven RV50 is designed to install directly into existing infrastructure. Offering both serial and Ethernet connectivity, it can be used to connect devices like PLCs and RTUs, and transmit a wide variety of protocols like Modbus/DNP3 with ease. The Raven RV50 can also be integrated directly into existing management systems via SNMP.

INTELLIGENCE AT THE EDGE The Raven RV50’s Application Framework (AAF) provides programmability for leading-edge on-board data gathering, real-time processing and integration with the Sierra Wireless IoT Acceleration Platform. Processing data from connected devices, and making decisions at the edge can all be realized with the Raven RV50.

SECURE INDUSTRIAL COMMUNICATIONS The Raven RV50 is loaded with features to secure critical data. It supports secure communications to multiple back-end systems by providing up to five concurrent VPN sessions. Remote authentication management allows enterprise-grade systems to manage access to devices in the field. Finally, port filtering and trusted IP protect the devices connected to the Raven RV50 from unwanted access.
