Motorola intros WiMAX USB adaptor
By Traci Patterson

Motorola has introduced its first WiMAX USB adaptor – the USBw 100 – a thumb-drive-size device available in three versions to connect to WiMAX networks in each of the three bands approved for use globally: 2.3GHz, 2.5GHz and 3.5 GHz.

The Motorola USBw 100 plugs directly into laptop computers to provide mobile and nomadic wireless broadband connectivity, both indoors and out, Motorola said. It is expected to be available in Q4 2008.

Motorola's wi4 WiMAX USB adaptor has been designed with multiple antenna technology to provide high-speed connectivity in various environments, especially inside home, business and coffee shop environments, as well as on-the-go. When used with Motorola's dual antenna Diversity Access Point (DAP)/Wireless Access Point (WAP) 400 Series, both uplink and downlink performance are significantly enhanced.
