Ericsson Develops Mobile Broadband Connection Protocol for Windows 8

Ericsson, in partnership with Microsoft and other companies within USB Implementers Forum, has developed a new protocol to make it easier for manufacturers to bring mobile broadband to people buying notebooks and tablets.

Support for the protocol, which will be included in Windows 8, means that device manufacturers will no longer need to install drivers for embedded mobile broadband connectivity or a connection manager.

The protocol will be demonstrated in reference devices at the Microsoft BUILD conference taking place in Anaheim, California September 13-16.

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.
