Verizon Wireless Offers BroadbandAccess Router Service For Enterprise Customers

BASKING RIDGE, NJ — Verizon Wireless, the nation's leading wireless service provider, today announced the immediate availability of BroadbandAccess Wireless Router Service to provide high-speed wireless wide area network (WAN) access for business customers. The company is also announcing the certification of the Cisco 3G Wireless WAN High Speed Interface Card (HWIC) for select Cisco integrated service routers for integration with BroadbandAccess Wireless Router Service. Wireless broadband-enabled routers allow businesses to link various devises within an office or remotely in cases of automatic teller machines (ATM), cash registers or branch office laptops.
