Expedite EV620(TM) EV-DO Wireless PCI Express Mini Card

An embedded module for integration into laptops, the PCI Express Mini Card is a form factor specification designed in mobile platforms and is optimized for most laptop systems. The Expedite EV620 provides wireless broadband data access on EV-DO networks at speeds up to 2.4 Mbps, and is designed for easy integration into laptop platforms and other wireless devices. The Expedite EV620 also includes receive diversity on 800 and 1900 MHz band CDMA2000 1xEV-DO and CDMA2000 1X networks, providing reliable connectivity, maximum data throughput and efficient management of device power consumption. The Novatel Wireless Expedite EV620 is backward compatible to CDMA2000 1X for true nationwide data connectivity in the US. With connection speeds comparable to DSL, laptops can quickly and easily stream audio and video files and download data-intensive attachments and multimedia applications anywhere within an EV-DO service area.

Expedite EU730(TM) and Expedite EU740(TM) HSDPA PCI Express Mini Cards

The Expedite EU730 operates on 850 and 1900 MHz UMTS/HSDPA networks in North America, while the Expedite U740 operates on 2100 MHz UMTS/HSDPA networks in Asia, Africa, Europe and the Middle East. The Expedite EU730 and EU740 enable data speeds up to 1.8 Mbps, and are backward compatible to 850, 900, 1800 and 1900 MHz Enhanced Data Rate for Global Evolution (EDGE), General Packet Radio Service (GPRS) and Global System for Mobile Communication (GSM) networks for wireless data access worldwide.
