"With the large numbers of servers being shipped every day, there is a corresponding need for communications wherever the server physically ends up," states Dan Nelson, Vice President of National Sales for Multi-Tech Systems. "Much of that communications need could involve cellular technology. If a server is deployed with landline network access, there is a potential need for cellular if the network is down as in everyday failures or with natural disasters. And, if the server is deployed where there is no off-premises network or even phone line access, cellular can become vital for any number of tasks."

The new MultiModem EDGE cellular wireless modem is an RoHS (Restriction on Hazardous Material) compliant product based on the Universal PCI design with either 3.3- or 5-volt operation. It is tested for FCC, PTCRB, and CE compliance, and includes drivers for Windows 2000, 2003, XP, Vista and Linux operating systems. It also includes an SMA antenna connector.
