Ericsson unveils new mobile broadband module

The new module is expected to reduce power consumption and prolong battery life

By CBR Staff Writer

Ericsson has unveiled its advanced mobile broadband module for HSPA/GPRS/EDGE networks, the F3607gw, which will be released in June 2009.

According to Ericsson, the F3607gw mobile-broadband module is expected to provide enhanced functionality and convenience through its new features, reduced power consumption, prolonged battery life and an increased level of integration, reducing the number of necessary components and therefore cost. The new module will also provide built-in mobile broadband support for Microsoft Windows 7.

This new technology will allow a new set of applications to be built into the computer to further enhance security and instant-on functionalities, such as the ability to disable the computer in case of theft, or instant distribution of messages and security updates, said Ericsson.

Operators can also combine the wake-on wireless feature and embedded GPS functionality to create a range of differentiating services for consumers and the enterprise market, including remote manageability, security updates, asset protection and tracking and geo-fencing, added Ericsson

Mats Norin, vice president for mobile broadband modules at Ericsson, said: The combination of leading technology and innovative design in the next-generation module is key to delivering a superior user experience at an affordable price. This module release confirms Ericsson’s commitment to making the benefits of connectivity available to everyone.
