(PresseBox) ( Barcelona, Spain, )
Sierra Wireless (NASDAQ: SWIR; TSX: SW) today announced a successful collaboration with Telefónica to demonstrate an innovative cloud computing application at Mobile World Congress this week in Barcelona, Spain.

Using the Sierra Wireless AirCard(R) 310U USB modem, the 3GBox demonstration in the Telefónica stand showcases a unique product and service combination wherein a customer would be provided with an online storage vault accessed directly via the USB modem. 3GBox is a simple way to store, access, and share files online. Installation of the required software for the online storage service is provided directly from the device, which also connects automatically to the user's passwordprotected storage file whenever the AirCard 310U is inserted into to the computer.

3GBox provides virtually unlimited storage without the fear of data loss that might occur if a USB key was misplaced or a notebook computer was stolen. With HSPA+ download speeds of up to 21 megabits per second (Mbps) and upload speeds of up to 5.76 Mbps on the Telefónica network, the Sierra Wireless AirCard 310U USB modem would allow 3GBox customers to use the online storage almost as if it was local, making the most of their time wherever they happen to be.

"Sierra Wireless is committed not just to making wireless work, but to making wireless work better, and this demonstration is a great example of how we work with network operator partners like Telefónica to increase the value of wireless service for our shared customers," said Jim Lahey, Vice President of Sales, EMEA for Sierra Wireless.
