AirCard 575

The AirCard® 575 PC Card offers wireless broadband access from laptop computers to enterprise applications, streaming audio and video, and the Internet. The AirCard® 575 PC Card was the first CDMA 1xEV-DO terminal used to test the EV-DO capabilities of the networks of some major carriers like Lucent Technologies and Nortel. The card was never released to the consumer market but it was followed by the modernized version – AirCard® 580 PC Card – that introduced a new form factor, a new antenna design and the compatibility with the faster CardBus host interface.
