LISA UMTS/HSPA modem now supported by nation’s fastest mobile broadband provider
u-blox, the Swiss positioning and wireless chip and module company, announces the official AT&T approval of LISA, the world’s smallest surface-mount 3G module for use on AT&T’s mobile broadband network. LISA is targeted for use in M2M, telematics, and other mobile devices for a wide variety of applications such as fleet management, emergency call, Automatic Vehicle Location (AVL), asset tracking, security systems and remote metering.
