Mobile broadband in Windows 8 simplified by Ericsson
A protocol proposed by Ericsson makes it easier for manufacturers to bring mobile broadband to people buying notebooks and tablets. The collaborative development of the protocol is an industry effort within USB Implementers Forum. Device manufacturers who implement the protocol will no longer need to install drivers for embedded mobile broadband connectivity or a connection manager – support for the protocol will be included in Windows 8. The new generation of mobile broadband modules from Ericsson supports this protocol. The new feature will be available on all Ericsson modules starting with the F5321gw, H5321gw and C5621gw and beyond after the final release of Windows 8.
