Sierra adds five AirCard 3G data modems

Sierra Wireless has added five new AirCard 3G data modems to its lineup, including the AirCard 503, AirCard USB 308/309 and AirCard USB 301/302. The 503, 309 and 308 all support high-speed HSPA+ networks, allowing for peak download speeds of 21Mbps. The 503 has a two-in-one design that fits both PC card and ExpressCard slots. The AirCard 503 supports quad-band regular HSPA (850/900/1900/2100MHz) bands.

The AirCard 308 and 309 USB modems have a smaller form factor and connect to a notebook's USB port externally. The AirCard USB 308 supports 850, 1900 and 2100MHz HSPA+ bands, while the AirCard 309 has 900 and 2100MHz HSPA+ band support.

The AirCard 301 and 302 USB modems support the slower HSPA networks, with peak 7.2Mbps download speeds. The USB 301 has support for 850 and 2100MHz HSPA frequencies, while the AirCard USB 302 uses 900 and 2100MHz frequencies.

All five are scheduled to go on sale before the end of the year, though prices have not been announced. [via Slashphone]
