Sierra Wireless FX30

Ruggedized, Industry-Certified IoT Gateway for Octave™ Solution


The FX30 is the industry’s smallest, most rugged programmable LTE cellular gateway. As part of an integrated, secure edge-to-cloud solution, the FX30 enables rapid, scalable, and global IoT deployments for any connected machine or infrastructure, with and without industrial protocols.

FX30 Benefits

  • Global & Scalable: Pre-provisioned with SIM for global LTE connectivity. Precertified for global deployments.
  • Small & Rugged: Purpose-built to fit into machines and infrastructure equipment; supports Modbus protocol and meets harsh industrial environmental requirements.
  • Highly Programmable: Enables secure data collection, data orchestration, actions, and edge-to-cloud integration via the Octave solution.
  • Extensible: Comprehensive built-in interfaces to connect easily to any system, plus flexible hardware expansion.


The FX30 ships with Octave™, Sierra Wireless’s edge-to-cloud solution for connecting industrial assets to the cloud. Octave helps industrial companies scale from proof of concept to commercial deployment more easily than ever by letting them securely extract and orchestrate data from industrial equipment to cloud infrastructure, all while efficiently managing their connected machines. Integrating device modules and gateways, wireless connectivity, and cloud APIs, Octave ensures you have the data you need, exactly when you need it. Providing a simple JavaScript framework, it enables powerful combinations of data processing rules both in the cloud and at the resource-constrained edge. With a single pane of glass to monitor, control, update and maintain connected edge devices and assets—including the lifecycle of the devices themselves, as well as their SIM connectivity—Octave empowers industrial companies to act on the data that matters most to them. The FX30 is also available with the Legato® Open Source Linux platform.


The FX30 provides superior performance in harsh environments with its small, rugged aluminum form factor. It meets MIL-STD-810 standard for vibration and mechanical shock, and maintains operation in extended temperatures from -30°C to +75°C, making it the ideal embeddable solution for any industrial machine. FX30 is pre-certified for large deployments, meeting a comprehensive range of regulatory and industry standards worldwide, including industrial protocols such as Modbus.


Offering unparalleled flexibility, the FX30 is available in both Ethernet and Serial variants and supports an IoT Connector expansion slot to enable hardware extensions. The IoT Connector enables an unlimited range of sensors and wired and wireless networks, such as Ethernet, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Zigbee, RS485, CANbus, Modbus. The FX30 offers best-in-class low power consumption, consuming less than 1W in idle mode and 2mW in ultra-low power mode, making it ideal for solar and battery-powered applications. The FX30 Octave includes a SIM pre-provisioned for global connectivity, providing LTE Cat-M1/NB1 LPWA connectivity with 2G fallback
