Sydney-based mobile vendor, Call Direct Cellular Solutions (CDCS), has launched a series of HSDPA routers based on its successful CDM823seu EvDO platform. The company is now on the lookout for additional resellers to tackle its expanding line of products.
Managing director, Barry Mitchell, said it had previously distributed its products through a nationwide internal reseller channel of about 30 resellers and integrators with associations in the mobile phone industry. Existing key partners include Telstra, United KG, Superior Scarda, and Control Wave.
Mitchell said CDCS products were most in demand as temporary or backup communication paths, and in remote areas where there is no broadband coverage.
"The integrators who work in remote applications will benefit the most, as well as people working with backup systems," he said.
The new HSDPA router series will cover all of Australia's HSDPA frequencies of 850/2100MHz. The series includes the 1.8M 2100MHz CDM821seu, the 1.8M 850MHz CDM885 and the 3.6Mbps Tri Band HSDPA CDM882, which will operate on EDGE, GPRS and standard GSM on 800/1800/1900MHz. Telephone-based product support is provided by the vendor directly.
The product launch coincides with news that telecommunication giants such as Telstra, Vodafone, Optus and 3 intend to switch to HSDPA over the next few months.
