As a follow-up to the blog posting about the Raven XT in February, it is worth noting that Sierra Wireless has re-released the Raven XT for Verizon Wireless (VZW) in 2014. Shipping of the new unit will begin in April 2014. Sierra Wireless had run out of components to continue making the Raven XT V2227, but has released the new version with a current EVDO Rev A module. In order to indicate the module change, Sierra Wireless has released a new part number for this Raven XT. The new part number for the AirLink Raven XT for Verizon Wireless is V2229T-VD for DC Power and V2229T-VA for AC Power. Sierra Wireless has committed to producing this new version of the Raven XT for the year of 2014. The Sierra Wireless Raven XT is in stock and available here. Remember that the Raven XT is serial only. Unless your business application requires the very low power-draw that makes the Raven XT appealing, the LS300 packs more bang for the buck with both a GPS and an Ethernet port.
