AnyDATA HSDPA router
AnyDATA's newly-released AWR-600WK receives data strictly from HSDPA and WCDMA networks, enabling broadband anywhere within signal range, at speeds up to 7.2Mbps. The router itself sustains 54Mbps transfers for four Ethernet connections, or as many as 253 wireless users via 802.11b/g. Security measures include 12- or 64-bit WEP encryption, WPA-PSK authentication, and other options such as a firewall and IP filtering. One potential downside to the router is its antennas, as it only has two: one for WCDMA and another to broadcast locally. Also, to order the router, shoppers must contact AnyDATA directly.
