As it rolls out its high speed EV-DO wireless broadband service nationwide, Sprint announced Monday that enhancements to its PCS Data Link service will enable customers to replace or back up their existing landline data services with new wireless offerings.

Customers using CDMA modems can access the new solutions, Sprint said. "It also enables fast deployment to support temporary or new retail facilities," the firm stated. "Even if a line is cut, customer access will remain intact, so critical business applications can remain available."

As an example of the potential use of the new system, Sprint said financial services providers could deploy mobile wireless ATM machines. The telecommunications company said its Sprint Nationwide PCS Network has average speeds of 50 to 70 kbps.
