IIJ releases data communications card for IIJ Mobile – Japan

Internet Initiative Japan (IIJ), a leading Internet access and network solutions provider, has announced March as the release date for a new IIJ-developed communications card ‘110FE’ for IIJ Mobile, an MVNO for corporate customers.

The new 110FE will be the industry’s first ExpressCard, and will work with the NTT DoCoMo FOMA HIGH-SPEED Network. The card is much more compact than the conventional PCMCIA card. In addition, the new card has a GSM international roaming facility together with the standard 3G features.

The card is bundled with driver software that automatically gets installed after the device is first used. It is also compatible with a connection tool, IIJ Mobile Secure link, providing a safer and more convenient mobile business environment. As part of the promotional offer, the company plans to waive the initial fee and terminal rental fee for customers who apply for the IIJ mobile Service/Type D Fixed Rate service, along with an 110FE card by the end of April 2009.
