Ericsson protocol to simplify mobile broadband

Device manufacturers who employ the protocol will no longer need to install drivers, claims the firm

By CBR Staff Writer

A newly proposed protocol, led by Ericsson with Microsoft, is expected to simplify adoption of mobile broadband for notebooks and tablets on Windows 8.

The new feature will be available on all Ericsson modules starting with the F5321gw, H5321gw and C5621gw and beyond after the final release of Windows 8.

Device manufacturers who employ the protocol will no longer need to install drivers for embedded mobile broadband connectivity or a connection manager, claims Ericsson.

Ericsson Mobile Broadband Modules head Mats Norin said this open communication protocol helps to save both time and cost for notebook and tablet makers.

"This is true also for the end user, enabling constant connectivity and simpler updates rather than separate downloads from manufacturer web sites," Norin said.

"As consumers are buying notebooks, netbooks, tablets and other consumer electronics, their expectations on connectivity go up.Ericsson believes in embedded connectivity to help consumers get what they want faster and in the simplest possible way."
