|Novatel Wireless Introduces Next Generation HSDPA/HSUPA USB Mobile Data Modem for Worldwide Broadband Connectivity|
Optimized for Europe, Ovation MC930D HSDPA/HSUPA USB Modem Provides Access to Web, Email and VPNs for Reliable, On-the-Go Mobility
Novatel Wireless, Inc., a leading provider of wireless broadband solutions, today announced the Ovation(TM) MC930D USB Modem, a HSDPA/HSUPA mobile broadband device designed to provide consumers and enterprise users with reliable and secure Internet access over the world's leading cellular data networks.
Optimized for Europe, the Ovation MC930D is a global modem designed to provide peak download speeds of 7.2 Mbps and upload speeds of 2.1 Mbps on any worldwide HSDPA/HSUPA network supporting the 2100 MHz band. Based on the same award-winning design as the MC950D, it features an extremely streamlined form factor (70 x 25 x 12 mm) and fits comfortably in any pocket, enabling the user to securely check email, surf the Web and remain connected to corporate resources.
"European mobile users require wireless broadband solutions that provide the flexibility to work the way they live," said Brad Weinert, president of Novatel Wireless. "The Ovation MC930D provides a great alternative for any consumer who wants the speed of a fixed DSL connection with the freedom to access their online life anytime, anywhere."
The MC930D ships with Mobilink(TM) Lite Connection Manager Software preinstalled on the modem's on-board memory, eliminating the need for Mac and Windows users to download drivers from a CD. A Dual USB Y-cable is included to provide increased power when using the modem in weak signal areas. The integrated internal antenna offers both receiver diversity and equalizer support to improve performance in crowded environments.
The Ovation MC930D is currently in the final stages of testing with leading carriers worldwide and is expected to be available February 2008 through a variety of Novatel Wireless' new and existing tier-one operator customers.
