GlobalTop’s GNSS embedded module portfolio will become part of the Sierra Wireless OEM solutions product line, and the GNSS staff from GlobalTop will join Sierra Wireless. GlobalTop’s GNSS products generated about US$5 million in revenue during the past year, and the business is about breakeven.
“With a wide array of modules and established sales channels, as well as a proven engineering team, we believe that the GlobalTop GNSS business is an important addition to Sierra Wireless,” said Dan Schieler, senior vice president and general manager, OEM solutions, Sierra Wireless. “Building on our portfolio of cellular, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth modules, we will have additional products to offer to our customers in markets where positioning data is critical, including high-value asset tracking, telematics, drones and automotive.”
