The Sierra Wireless MC8780 embedded module offers faster download speeds than previous models, with peak data rates of up to 7.2 megabits per second (Mbps). In addition, it is the first Sierra Wireless module designed for HSUPA networks, with uplink speeds more than five times faster than those available on current networks - up to 2 Mbps. The faster uplink speed is particularly important for customers who routinely send large files over the wireless network while mobile.
The MC8780 offers tri-band UMTS/HSPA and quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE network access for roaming on mobile broadband networks worldwide. The MC8780 also offers Receive Diversity and GPS support. Designed for integration into notebook computers, fixed wireless terminals, and other devices requiring high-speed wireless connectivity, Sierra Wireless PCI Express Mini Card embedded modules for HSUPA networks are fully shielded and offer an operating temperature range of -25 to +60 degrees Celsius to suit all applications.
Sierra Wireless PCI Express Mini Card modules include a common comprehensive WHQL-certified USB software driver architecture that provides superior power management, a dedicated diagnostic channel, and the ability to enable or disable NDIS or DUN support, providing maximum flexibility to OEM customers when designing their wireless product. To simplify and expedite product development cycles, Sierra Wireless also provides OEM customers with a comprehensive software development kit (SDK) or Sierra Wireless’s own Watcher(TM) software for easy connection management.
OEM customers can rely on Sierra Wireless to deliver a suite of PCI Express Mini Card products along with best-in-class technical and integration support, so end customers experience the same reliable, robust AirCard Enabled(TM) data solution users have come to expect from the AirCard line of PC card products.
