Vancouver-based Sierra Wireless announced this week it will supply the first devices for AT&T’s 4G LTE network in the U.S.
The AT&T Mobile Hotspot Elevate 4G (also known as the Sierra Wireless AirCard 754S mobile hotspot) and the AT&T USBConnect Momentum 4G (the Sierra Wireless AirCard 313U USB modem) will enable mobile consumers and professionals to do more on-the-go from laptops, tablets and other mobile devices, the company said.
Both devices are expected to be available to AT&T customers sometime this summer.
AT&T recently announced plans to roll out its 4G LTE network in five markets — Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, and San Antonio.
“Increasingly, people have integrated their online and offline lives through social media, video conferencing, gaming, and entertainment,” said Dan Schieler, senior vice president and general manager of mobile computing at Sierra Wireless.
“LTE offers true, untethered, rich multimedia that provides a great customer experience for the way people live online today,”
