Chinese network equipment and mobile device maker ZTE introduces the MF823, the world’s smallest 4G LTE datacard. Measuring just 13mm thick, the MF823 is just a third of the size of the company’s first gen LTE data card. It also consumes a third less power than its brother.
ZTE’s MF823 is boosted by Qualcomm’s second generation LTE chip and supports LTE-FDD, UMTS-HSPA+ and GPRS/GSM mobile networks, and IPv6 standard. The USB 4G LTE modem supports up to 100Mbps DL and 50Mbps UL on LTE-FDD network and up to 42/5.76Mbps DL/UL on HSPA+. It is compatible with Windows XP/7/8, Mac OS X, and ‘all major operating systems’, and provides a web UI for operation and settings.
ZTE has released the MF823 in Kazakhstan and will launch it in Europe and Asia-Pacific countries soon.
