BASKING RIDGE, NJ — From the 2011 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES), Novatel Wireless today announced its work with six OEMs for embedded LTE modules that take advantage of the Verizon Wireless 4G LTE Mobile Broadband network.

Novatel Wireless' Expedite E351 module is part of the following implementations showcased at the Verizon Wireless LTE Innovation Center at CES:

  • Mobile Gaming Laptop that is customized for hardcore ultra-mobile gamers featuring laptop personalization, 720p resolution, an 11-inch screen, and a gaming apps client.

The Verizon Wireless 4G LTE Mobile Broadband network, launched in December 2010, is the fastest, most advanced network in the United States, providing speeds up to 10 times faster than Verizon Wireless' 3G network. Verizon Wireless' 4G LTE Mobile Broadband network currently reaches one-third of all Americans, with plans to expand the network to the company's entire 3G coverage area over the next three years.

The solutions showcased with Novatel Wireless' embedded modules are a result of collaborations fostered at Verizon Wireless' LTE Innovation Center.
