Most of the big news from CES2011 in Vegas today is about 4G handsets, but what about modems? Enter the WM300 and L2000 from LG and the M700 LTE module from ST-Ericsson. The LG WM300 is the result of a three-year collaboration between LG Mobile Phones and Verizon Wireless’ LTE Innovation Center. The LG module and chipset are compatible with Verizon Wireless’ 4G LTE Mobile Broadband network, and are applicable to machine-to-machine (M2M) solutions such as fixed wireless applications, including gateway devices and telematics. Jorgen Lantto, executive vice president and chief technology officer of ST-Ericsson, says “Our M700 LTE modem can download data at very high speeds, enabling consumers to enjoy demanding mobile multimedia services such as rapid file transfers, high-definition video streaming, video conferencing and online gaming.”
These LTE modem modules will most likely find their way into Netbooks, Portable PCs, or USB data modems.
