The G3HSPA00 option card allows the user to add HSPA+ cellular modem capability to their G3 operator interface terminal. The cellular standard adopted in this option card is HSPA+ with fallback capability to 3G and 2G. It can get
speeds up to 21 Mbps downlink and 5.76 Mbps uplink. It’s built upon the GSM standard, offered in the US and widely available throughout the world. HSPA+ can be used for services such as Wireless Application Protocol (WAP) access, Short Message Service (SMS), and for Internet connectivity.

The G3HSPA00 option card is penta-band, allowing it to work in frequencies across the Americas, Europe and Asia. US and Canada work in the 850/1900 MHz bands, while Europe, Middle East, Africa and most of Asia work in the
900/1700/2100 MHz HSPA+ frequencies.

The G3HSPA requires the addition of a SIM (Subscriber Identity Module) card, which is inserted into the holder prior to installation of the G3HSPA card. The SIM card securely stores the service-subscriber key (IMSI) used to identify a subscriber, and is used to connect to the network to obtain an IP address from the provider.
