Cingular launches wireless failover services based on EDGE
Cingular Wireless is introducing its new Wireless WAN Connectivity Service, a solution that uses a gateway device to provide enhanced and secure wide area connectivity for mission-critical data operations.

The Wireless WAN Connectivity Service is based on Cingular's EDGE wireless network, a fast wireless data network in conjunction with the Digi Connect WAN GSM wireless gateway from Minneapolis-based Digi International. An embedded EDGE modem provides the connection to Cingular's wireless network.

EDGE is a layer deployed on top of GPRS networks that allows mobile operators to offer higher data speed, up to 135Kbps (kilobits per second).

Using Cingular's Wireless WAN Connectivity Service customers can configure their local area networks so that the Wireless WAN Connectivity Service automatically activates should the wireline connection be interrupted.

The Wireless WAN Connectivity Service also can be used as a primary data connection for companies with remote or temporary operations where there is no readily available wireline access, or those looking for a cost-effective and fast deployment.

The Digi Connect WAN GSM wireless gateway provides a direct IP connection to a facility's primary server via a 10/100 Base-T Ethernet. In addition to wireless modem communications, it offers local intelligence with features such as network routing, persistent connections, firewall restrictions, and "always on" capability. Digi's remote Connect WAN gateway is supported by the Digi Connectware Manager, an enterprise-class management platform that makes it easy to deploy and manage thousands of devices over a wireless wide area network.
