February 11, 2019 / Ken Briodagh

Sierra Wireless, provider of integrated device-to-cloud solutions for the Internet of Things (IoT), recently announced that Unimar, a supplier of tower and obstruction lighting products, has selected Sierra Wireless to connect and manage critical lighting and control systems along flight paths. “Sierra Wireless’ device-to-cloud solution allows us to provide our customers with a managed service to monitor, control and optimize their obstruction lighting,” said Terry Zarnowski, CTO, Unimar. “We’re able to collect insightful, actionable data from devices in the field and receive alerts in mission-critical situations, ensuring that flight path hazards are always properly marked and our customers are compliant with FAA protocols. As a result, we’re able to substantially reduce the time it takes to file a Notice To Airmen, to within seconds instead of minutes or hours, greatly reducing liability and risk to our customers.”
