Vancouver -- Sierra Wireless announced that Sierra Wireless HSDPA PCI Express Mini Card embedded modules will provide high-speed 3G connectivity to HP Compaq 6400 Notebook PCs later this year. In addition, the Sierra Wireless MC5720 EV-DO PCI Express Mini Card embedded module is incorporated in the HP Compaq 6400 Notebook PCs, following on the company's successful EV-DO module integration into two HP notebook PCs earlier this year.
With the integration of Sierra Wireless Mini Card modules, AirCard Enabled(TM) HP notebooks will allow mobile professionals to quickly and conveniently access email and corporate information while on the go(1), including large attachments and data-intensive online applications. With wide area wireless connectivity on an HSDPA network, busy professionals can work productively within cellular coverage areas - from a client site, park bench, or even the back of a taxi - without spending valuable time looking for hotspots.
"The utility of business notebooks is increasingly being defined by their ability to connect to email and the internet, and our collaboration with Sierra Wireless is allowing customers to stay connected in more places at broadband speeds," said Carol Hess-Nickels, director of commercial notebook marketing, HP. "HP business notebooks are giving customers a choice in network service providers and a truly global mobility option for international travel."
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, which provides maximum flexibility to OEM customers when designing their wireless product. To simplify and expedite product development cycles, Sierra Wireless also provides OEM customers a comprehensive software development kit (SDK) and Sierra Wireless's own Watcher(TM) software for easy connection management.
