Fast surfing with the Powerbook

The Berlin distributor for mobile communication solutions Novamedia is introducing its new software 'Mac Mobile High Speed' for the first time, with which Powerbook users can use the fast Nokia CardPhone 2.0, because Nokia unfortunately only offers drivers for Win 98 notebooks. The CardPhone 2.0, designed as a PC card, is so far the only solution with which one can bundle mobile radio channels with a capacity of 9.6 or 14.4 kBit/s in appropriately equipped GSM networks.

The CardPhone 2.0, designed as a PC card, is so far the only solution with which mobile radio channels with a capacity of 9.6 or 14.4 kBit/s can be bundled in appropriately equipped GSM networks. This gives you speeds of up to 28.8 kBit/s. The process called HSCSD (High Speed ​​Circuit Switched Data) is currently only available from E-Plus under the service name HSMD. E-Plus wants to enable speeds of up to 43.2 kBit/s in a later expansion stage. In the announcement by D2Privat you can also read that the network is also to be upgraded with HSCSD technology, which should also play a major role in the future. Mac Mobile High Speed ​​costs 199 marks and supports exactly the same functions as the Windows version. That means, both the analog connection establishment according to the V.34 protocol and the digital connection establishment according to V.110. A modem script is included for ARA or PPP connections so that remote access or Internet connections can be established. The prerequisite for the software is the SIM card activated for the high-speed service and a Macintosh Powerbook G3.
