Mexico's Iusacell Selects Franklin Wireless' CDU-680 EVDO Rev. A Wireless Broadband Modem


SAN DIEGO, CA--(MARKET WIRE)--Nov 5, 2007 -- Franklin Wireless Corp, a developer and marketer of wireless broadband communications devices and applications, and Mexican operator Iusacell announced the launch of the Franklin Wireless CDU-680 mobile broadband USB modem on Iusacell's CDMA 1xEV-DO Revision A network in Mexico.

The Franklin Wireless CDU-680 USB modem is available through Iusacell distributors and is the first EVDO Rev. A modem to incorporate flash memory, a GPS receiver and a unique swiveling USB connector.

As Mexico's only 1xEV-DO Rev. A network operator, Iusacell has embarked on a strategic and differentiating approach that focuses on mobile data products and services, which places the company as a leading-edge technology operator. Customers can send and receive email with large file attachments, receive and send high-resolution pictures and video and wirelessly connect to the Internet anytime, anywhere. EVDO Rev. A supports peak data rates of 3.1 Mbps.

"The addition of Franklin Wireless' CDU-680 USB modem gives our users the flexibility they need to take advantage of Mexico's fastest mobile broadband network," said Jorge de la Mora, Data Solutions Vice President with Iusacell. "The product is compatible with multiple operating systems and incorporates sophisticated features our customers are demanding."

The extremely compact CDU-680 USB modem provides a flexible way for users to connect to the ultra-fast EV-DO Rev. A network since it is compatible with any laptop, tablet PC or desktop USB port and operates with Windows, Macintosh and Linux operating systems. The modem defaults to EV-DO Rev. 0 technology where EV-DO Rev. A coverage is lacking.

One differentiating feature of the CDU-680 product is the onboard flash memory, which eliminates the need for a CD or CD drive to install the factory pre-stored Connection Manager software for PC, Mac and Linux computers. Users also have enough space to store downloaded music files, documents and installation guide. Another unique feature includes a swiveling USB connector, which allows the modem to be raised vertically for improved radio frequency performance or folded away when not in use.

"With the CDU-680 USB modem, Franklin Wireless continues to push the envelope with high-end features and capabilities for wireless broadband USB modems," said Mr. O.C. Kim, president of Franklin Wireless. "We are pleased to offer Iusacell's users a multi-platform connectivity solution that will enable them to connect anywhere, anytime."
