Ericsson Announces Super Fast HSPA Evolution and 3G Broadband Modules

Today, Ericsson announced the release of two embedded broadband modules. The first is a 3G module that’s specifically designed to support tablets, and the second is designed to take advantage of the 21 Mbps-capable HSPA Evolution network currently under development by T-Mobile.

The 3G module, which utilizes the HSPA networks, is notable because it’s one of the first 3G modules that’s specifically meant to support Intel’s Oak Trail processors for tablets. It will offer download speeds up to 7.2 Mbps and upload speeds up to 5.76Mbps.

Another bonus of this module is that it’s already been pre-approved by many carriers worldwide, meaning hungry gadget hounds like us will see these soon-to-be-unveiled tablets reach the market faster.

The HSPA Evolution module offers downloads that are 3 times the speed of its 3G sibling, with the ability to download at 21 Mbps. The top upload speed remains the same at 5.76 Mbps.

This module has a lot more going for it than just raw speed. It also features embedded GPS and Wake-on Wireless capability. Basically, this function allows your device to be connected while in sleep mode, meaning that push notifications can be received and the device can even be woken up remotely. Designed for notebooks and other consumer electronics, the HSPA Evolution module will be available to manufacturers in October.
