Franklin Wireless Introduces the U311 WiMAX USB Modem

New USB Modem Will Address New International Markets

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - Sep 14, 2011) - Franklin Wireless Corp. (OTCBB: FKWL), the market leader in dual-mode WiMAX and CDMA modems for 3G and 4G wireless broadband data communications, today announced the launch of its new U311 single-mode WiMAX USB modem. The U311 is similar to Franklin's recently introduced and currently in-market U310 model, but differs from the U310 in that it operates over the 3.5GHz frequency band, as opposed to the U310's 2.3GHz and 2.5GHz bands. Because of this, the U311 represents an ideal solution for WiMAX carriers located within Latin America, Africa, Asia and Europe. This high-speed device is sleek, compact and features a web-based user interface, a 270-degree rotating hinge, antenna TX diversity and can be used with an external antenna. The U311 USB modem is available immediately to Franklin's customers on a worldwide basis.

"The market release of Franklin's new U311 WiMAX USB modem follows on the heels of the successful launch of the U310 model," stated OC Kim, president of Franklin Wireless. "We feel the U311 will allow us to penetrate new markets and expand our sales opportunities beyond the US, Latin American and Caribbean markets where we have traditionally operated."

The U310 modem supports Windows® 7, Windows Vista®, Windows XP, Linux and Mac OS® X.
