VANCOUVER, British Columbia -- September 17, 2013

Sierra Wireless (NASDAQ:SWIR) (TSX:SW) today announced the launch of the
Sierra Wireless Solution Partner Program and the Sierra Wireless M2M Solution
Exchange.

The Sierra Wireless Solution Partner Program promotes integrated wireless
solutions powered by Sierra Wireless technology. It offers a streamlined,
functional way for solution partners to work with Sierra Wireless to promote
their solutions to the company’s network of carrier, sales, and reseller
channels.

As part of the program, the Sierra Wireless M2M Solution Exchange showcases
real world wireless solutions, proven and deployed across a variety of
categories, including fleet and asset management, digital signage, business
continuity, and smart grid. At launch, the 28 solutions from 18 partners
featured in the Exchange are built using Sierra Wireless AirLink® gateways for
2G, 3G, and 4G networks. The program will be expanded over the next year to
include solutions incorporating other Sierra Wireless technologies, becoming a
valuable resource for organizations looking for connected solutions that can
help them streamline their operations, improve efficiency, improve their
customer service, and reduce operating costs.

to their industry and needs,” said Emmanuel Walckenaer, Senior Vice President,

delivers tremendous value to both our partners and to customers.”
