Sprint launches wireless backup service

Sprint today launched added wireless access to its PCS Data Link business offering. The new wireless service expansion will give Sprint's enterprise customers a wide area data connection using the carrier's CDMA-based data network. Put simply, this means that Sprint PCS Data Link customers will be able to use Sprint's CDMA network as a primary or backup connection source for both fixed and mobile locations. The service uses a small wireless modem that ties into an enterprise's current network infrastructure to provide either direct backhaul or act as a backup when the primary landline backhaul is interrupted. Initial devices will be available for between $250 and $400 using the carrier's CDMA2000 1xrtt network. Sprint said it plans to add EV-DO backhaul to the service once the carrier's network is available in sufficient number of markets.
