The USB Data Cards market for wide area communications over 3G networks is growing rapidly. With over hundred of million units of broadband 3G modems been shipped around the world annually, either as external USB modems or integrated Laptop/Netbook and Smartphone.
The common PC connectivity for such devices is the USB standard that enables high-speed data transfer rates, and is compatible with every common desktop operating system. Together with mobile PCs' emerging demand for longer battery life and better host OS support, the need for high-performance quality communication drivers becomes critical.
USBware and DriverCore for Data Cards accommodates these industry requirements by supporting the advanced mobile networking standards and meeting the rigid data card driver needs 4G technology such as WiMAX and LTE are increasingly being adopted for applications such as mobile broadband and stationary networks.
These applications leverage its speed advantage over HSDPA/UMTS solutions and its enhanced mobility, compared to Wi-Fi solutions.
WiMAX and LTE chips are beginning to be integrated in new laptop designs as a built in feature. However, there is a growing need to support current laptops that lack this feature.
To support these laptops, WiMAX and LTE enablers provide external devices (dongles) connected to the laptop via USB. These dongles are exposed to the operating system as a modem or network adapter, providing seamless and transparent network connection to the user.
USB provides an expandable, Plug and Play interface that ensures a standard, low cost and low power consumption connection for peripherals, making it ideal for use with power sensitive computers like laptops and PDAs.
DriverCore provides WiMAX/LTE device OEMs with a complete set of PC USB drivers for fast and simple setup of networking and diagnostic interfaces with PC/laptop, including Communication Device Class (CDC) drivers: ACM, ECM, NCM, EEM, USB-to-Serial and others.
