The new AirCard 760S, AirCard 762S and AirCard 763S offer several feature enhancements, including an improved user interface, longer battery life and expanded frequency-band support across the product family, providing variants compatible with most common frequency-band combinations around the world. The company said the mobile hotspots are expected to launch in select markets in North America, Australia, Asia and Europe over the next couple of months. The AirCard 76xS mobile hotspot product family supports up to 10 simultaneous WiFi connections. The company claims that on a 4G LTE network it provides sufficient bandwidth to handle demanding applications like online gaming and streaming media.
