Aisino selects Sierra Wireless AirPrime Intelligent Embedded Modules for network billing machine deployments in China


Sierra Wireless AirPrime™ Q26 series equipped with China Mobile WMMP 3.0 protocol has been fully tested and certified for use on the China Mobile network, enabling rapid development and deployment

Vancouver, Canada - Sierra Wireless (NASDAQ: SWIR; TSX: SW) today announced that Aisino Corporation, a leading information technology company in China, has selected Sierra Wireless AirPrime™ Q2686 intelligent embedded modules with Embedded SIM for integration into its network billing machine. The Aisino network billing machine enables tax payers to immediately feed their tax data to the Taxation Bureau, using the China Mobile network to provide real-time communication with the back-end server.

Aisino undertakes many national major projects in the tax sector in China and is a key technology and service provider for the Golden Tax Project, which aims to eliminate tax evasion and fraud activity in the collection and reporting of Value Added Taxes (VAT) by establishing a national computerized taxation network. As part of the Golden Tax Project, Aisino has developed a new backend taxation system and network billing machine, with an integrated Sierra Wireless AirPrime Q2686 embedded module, to provide real-time transaction and billing information to the government. It saves time for businesses in declaring tax and also helps the Taxation Bureau to more closely monitor the tax control system.

The AirPrime Q2686 embedded module comes equipped with the China Mobile WMMP 3.0 protocol, which allows Aisino to rapidly develop and deploy the tax payment machine for use on the China Mobile network without having to perform extensive development and testing, resulting in much faster time to market. In addition, the Embedded SIM feature included in the AirPrime Q2686 module strengthens the security of the wireless tax payment machine by eliminating the use of the traditional plastic SIM card, reducing the chance of the SIM being stolen and used for other purposes.

“Automated tax management has been strongly endorsed by the State Administration of Taxation to strengthen tax collection in China. As the key solution provider in the tax industry, Aisino definitely needs a proven leader who can provide a reliable network transmission technology to support us, which is why we chose Sierra Wireless,” said Dr. YANG Weichen, Vice General Manager for Aisino. “Its AirPrime Q2686 embedded module is already equipped with WMMP 3.0 protocol, which provides customized support for the China Mobile network. This significantly shortens our development time and allows us to make our product available more quickly at lower cost.”

“We have achieved a great milestone in introducing a new M2M technology to the tax industry and enabling a fully connected tax reporting system. The implementation of this new wireless tax payment machine helps to ensure tax compliance and improves the efficiency of Inland Revenue Department in collecting taxes,” said Didier Dutronc, Senior Vice President and General Manager, M2M Embedded Solutions for Sierra Wireless. “We are pleased that Aisino selected Sierra Wireless as a trustworthy partner for the tax payment solution.”
