Caelera has taken up the distribution of Novatel Wireless Merlin XU870 ExpressCard in Australia. Novatel Wireless Merlin XU870 ExpressCard is designed to operate on worldwide 3G HSDPA networks and supports data speeds up to 7.2 Mbps with worldwide roaming.
The Merlin XU870 ExpressCard fits both 34 and 54 size slots, and is a tri-band HSDPA/UMTS and quad-band EDGE/GPRS product that allows for worldwide roaming between HSDPA networks. The Merlin XU870 ExpressCard has been initially configured for 3.6 Mbps data speeds and when mobile operators start providing 7.2 Mbps service, a software utility will be used to upgrade the card and boost its speed to 7.2 Mbps.
The Merlin XU870 ExpressCard allows new notebook platforms, with the ExpressCard slot, to take advantage of its performance and scalability for wireless broadband connectivity.
Novatel Wireless also offers an adapter, which enables the card to be used in existing PC Card slots as well as ExpressCard slots, guaranteeing future upgradability.
The Merlin XU870 meets all major international standards including CE, FCC and Australian A-Tick.
