(PresseBox) ( SAO PAULO, Brazil and VANCOUVER, )
Sierra Wireless (NASDAQ: SWIR - TSX: SW) and MobiPower today announced their agreement to collaborate in the development of stolen-vehicle recovery and asset protection solutions based on Sierra Wireless embedded cellular modules.

The brain of the device is to be a Sierra Wireless WMP100 Wireless Microprocessor(R), which hosts an Open AT(R) application and communicates information via cellular connection to the Internet, enabling remote monitoring of vehicles and other personal property.

The MobiPower device will offer Brazil's industry the ability to protect valuable assets including vehicles and possibly real property in order to improve service delivery. To do so, MobiPower has focused on providing a compact, low-power-consumption device that can be easily applied to a variety of different assets - all designed and produced locally in Brazil.

"We chose Sierra Wireless because they offered the most cost-effective, feature-rich solution available on the market," said Carlos Cecanecchia Neto, Director of MobiPower. "By embedding our application on the module we are able to reduce component redundancy and realize both cost savings and a more compact design."

"Sierra Wireless is pleased to be actively involved in the growing marketplace in Brazil and particularly with our relationship with MobiPower," said Dan Schieler, Senior Vice President of Worldwide Sales for Sierra Wireless. "MobiPower is uniquely positioned to provide best-in-class asset monitoring, and we're proud to help keep insurance costs in check for business and consumers, especially in today's difficult economic environment."
