Novatel Wireless launches NovaSpeed Software for mobile data cards
Posted on 2-Apr-2008 17:14 | Tags Filed under: News



Novatel Wireless, Inc. has introducd NovaSpeed, a proprietary software capable of enhancing the speed and performance of its wireless broadband modems up to 400 percent, while enabling simultaneous upload and download data transfer.

Novatel Wireless developed NovaSpeed to enhance the speed and performance of its mobile broadband modems through the use of a network traffic prioritization protocol.

By enabling the modem to monitor network conditions and regulate the concurrent uploads and downloads in real time, NovaSpeed enables the user to run multiple applications simultaneously.

Depending on channel conditions, lab tests of the software have shown up to a 400 percent increase in throughput speeds when the broadband channel is being used for multiple applications.

“Simultaneous downloading has become a critical functionality for mobile services and applications whose success depends on the quality of the end user experience, such as those geared towards entertainment,” said Sterling Pratz, chief executive officer of Autonet Mobile, a technology partner of Novatel Wireless. “One example is a family with two kids in the car surfing and gaming over the Internet at the same time. You’ve got to have the bandwidth and IP traffic optimization to support these applications without buffering and choppy video feeds.”

“Streaming video and online gaming are prime examples of bandwidth intensive activities that require efficient management of the cellular link in order to deliver a great experience for the end user,” said Brad Weinert, president of Novatel Wireless. “NovaSpeed is a significant advancement in wireless data traffic management technology that reinforces our commitment to innovation and will continue to differentiate our high-speed data products from any others on the market.”

NovaSpeed will ship as a standard feature on all new Novatel Wireless mobile data products and will be available in future firmware upgrades for existing models.
