TSTT and Franklin Wireless Corporation, a wireless communication provider based in California, announced a distribution agreement and the launching of the first wireless CDMA 1XEV-DO USB modem.

In this agreement, Franklin Wireless will be shipping units of its CCU-550 1XEVDO modem for this launch using TSTT’s CDMA mobile network.

Franklin CCU-550 is the industry’s first wireless USB modem based on CDMA2000 1XEVDO technology.

This product will enable TSTT’s subscribers with laptop, ultra-portable and desktop computers that do not have a PCMCIA card slot to connect to the Internet anytime anywhere, a TSTT press release stated.

It is capable of speeds of up to 2.4 mbps enabling PC users to access e-mail and browse the Internet at speeds comparable to cable and DSL connections.

“I’m pleased about our distribution agreement on behalf of Franklin Wireless, we are honoured to be the first company to supply our innovative and high quality USB wireless modem product to TSTT,” said OC Kim, president of Franklin Wireless Corp.

TSTT said the union with Franklin will optimise the delivery of the country’s first mobile broadband solution.
