SAN DIEGO -- (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Nexaira Wireless Inc. announces its first commercially available 4G Business Class Router that works seamlessly with Verizon’s new LTE (Long Term Evolution) network.

Nexaira’s NexWare™ firmware, the engine that powers its line of routers, supports the Pantech LTE UML290 data card currently used as one of only two modems certified on the Verizon LTE network. Verizon's new 4G LTE network, which has recently been launched in 38 U.S. cities, has download speeds comparable to cable networks while boasting significantly faster upload speeds.

“This is indicative of our commitment to stay at the forefront of 3G and 4G wireless technology, whether it’s HSPA, HSPA+, Wi-Max or, in this most recent example, LTE. To the best of my knowledge, we are the only business class router that supports LTE in the country. Our tests in San Diego showed download speeds of 20Mbps and upload speeds of 8Mbps, many times faster than anything we have ever tested. This network technology is incredible – it’s ten times faster than 3G,” said Carl Silva, Nexaira’s Chief Scientist and VP of Technology.

Mac Users benefit too because Nexaira’s 4G BCII and SOHO Routers allow users to share their 4G connection with multiple computers. Even though the UML290 modem currently only supports Microsoft Windows XP, Vista, and Windows 7, when connected via a Nexaira Router, the NexWare firmware enables Mac users or any other wireless device to connect online with Verizon LTE.

Nexaira’s cellular solutions are simple to install, yet provide the advanced management and business class features demanded by the most sophisticated users. Nexaira’s wireless devices are ideal for secure high availability wireless applications acting as the primary router on wireless, DSL, or cable networks or can be used to provide complete device and network redundancy in wide area network-failover/fail back applications.
