Sierra Wireless unveils product line for EV-DO Revision A networks
Sierra Wireless has unveiled two new products - the AirCard 595 and the MC5725 PCI Express mini card embedded module for laptops and other mobile computing devices - from the company's product line for EV-DO Revision A networks. Revision A is an upgrade to the current EV-DO networks, which allows download data rates of up to 3.1 Mbps and upload data rates of up to 1.8 Mbps. Both products are backward compatible with current EV-DO and CDMA 1xRTT networks, which means that customers will be able to use them in areas where EV-DO Revision A is still not deployed. The AirCard 595 is expected to be commercially available in the third quarter of 2006.
