Hayward, CA -- AirLink Communications, Inc. and TELUS announced Canada's commercial availability of rugged, intelligent modems for EVDO third generation (3G) networks. Fully inspected and certified by TELUS, the Raven-E and PinPoint-E modems are powered by ALEOS(TM), AirLink's proprietary intelligent embedded operating system, and are uniquely suited for a host of high-bandwidth, fixed and mobile applications including automatic vehicle location (AVL), asset tracking, automated dispatch, disaster recovery, enterprise data/network back-up, public safety, remote monitoring, sales force automation and security.
Based on the CDMA 1xEVDO standard, the newest 3G wireless data technology available, TELUS' Wireless High Speed network offers clients mobile access to the Internet, e-mail servers and other data at speeds similar to desktop Internet access. Clients using the AirLink modems will experience typical download speeds of 400 to 700 kilobits per second, and possible speeds of more than 2 megabits per second. Network coverage is now available in major urban centres across Canada, including Vancouver, Whistler, Calgary, Edmonton, Fort McMurray, Ottawa, Toronto, Montreal, Mount-Tremblant, St. Jovite and Quebec City.
The AirLink Raven-E is an intelligent wireless gateway and optimal for providing primary or backup network connectivity for high-reliability, high-availability applications.

The modem is an ideal solution for any device with an Ethernet connection that requires pervasive connectivity, including PCs, routers, network equipment and POS/ATMs, as well as commercial automation equipment.
By blending an always-on wireless broadband data connection with a high-precision, integrated GPS receiver, the AirLink PinPoint-E provides scaleable mobile data solutions for the enterprise. As a standalone in-vehicle device, it enables real-time, location-based applications. Its Ethernet, serial and digital interfaces enable a host of applications to communicate over public EVDO networks, with typical data speeds similar to DSL.
