INTRODUCTION
This manual is focussed on the GSM/GPRS/EDGE/UMTS data solutions of the enhanced
performance SAMBA3G-E USB modem from FALCOM Wireless Communications GmbH.
1.1
General
The SAMBA3G-E portable USB modem is a 3.5G wireless data modem, compact, lightweight that features a single-band 2100MHz UMTS/HSDPA radio for data connectivity.
The SAMBA3G-E is fully backward compatible to existing EDGE and GSM/GPRS networks
and maintains the same form-factor of the well-known SAMBA55-56 modem. The major
benefit over earlier SAMBA3G-E is that it supports HSDPA/UMTS (Universal Mobile
Telecommunications System). This modem is ideal for mobile users who want high
speed Internet access on the road.
SAMBA3G-E allows subscribers to send and receive data, including digital images, web
pages and photographs, with a transfer rate up to 7.2 Mbits. Additional features are
also voice and SMS. It can be easily controlled by using AT commands for all kinds of
operations. The SAMBA3G-E is designed for use on single-band WCDMA/HSDPA 2100
network and GSM/GPRS/EDGE 900MHz and 1800MHz networks. With its pocket-sized
construction it is able to provide up to 7.2 Mbits Internet access by using
WCDMA/HSDPA 2100. It can also serve as the mobile user's desktop modem in the
office. It constitutes a self contained, fully integrated implementation of the GSM/GPRS/
EDGE and HSDPA/UMTS functionalities. The SAMBA3G-E provides an integrated SIM card
reader and an internal GSM antenna to simplify the setup and use. The physical
interface to the modem application is made through an embedded USB connector
which simplifies setup and operation of the modem. It allows direct connection to a USB
host port. It gives you maximum life from your laptop's battery in that it draws power
directly from the USB port and only uses the battery when plugged in. The LED on the
modem shows the complete modem status.
About GPRS
General Packet Radio Service (GPRS) is a high-speed, data-only service that is an add-on
to the GSM (Global System for Mobile Communications) cellular network - a type of
network used to provide cellular phone service. The SAMBA3G-E Modem provides reliable
data connections to GPRS 900 MHz (GSM), GPRS 900 (GSM), and 1800 MHz (DCS)
networks. When in regions where GPRS is not available, user can still establish 14.4 kbps
GSM data connections.
About EDGE
Enhanced Data rates for GSM Evolution (EDGE) is a third-generation (3G) high-speed
mobile data and Internet access technology, with downlink up to 236.8 kbps and uplink
up to 118 kbps. The average rates are fast enough to support a wide range of advanced
data services, including streaming audio and video, fast Internet access and large file
downloads.
About UMTS
Universal Mobile Telecommunications System (UMTS) is one of the third-generation (3G)
high-speed mobile data and Internet access technology, with theoretical peak rates of
473 kbps and average throughput of 110-130 kbps. The average rates are fast enough to
support a wide range of advanced data services, including streaming audio and video,
fast Internet access and large file downloads.
About HSDPA
High-Speed Downlink Packet Access (HSDPA) is a 3G (third generation) mobile telephony
communications protocol in the High-Speed Packet Access (HSPA) family, which allows
networks based on Universal Mobile Telecommunications System (UMTS) to have higher
data transfer speeds and capacity. Current HSDPA on SAMBA3G-E supports down-link
speed of up to 7.2 Mbits/s and up-link speed of up to 384 kbps.

2 SECURITY
IMPORTANT FOR THE EFFICIENT AND SAFE OPERATION OF YOUR GSM-MODEM, READ THIS
INFORMATION BEFORE USE!
Your cellular engine SAMBA3G-E is one of the most exciting and innovative electronic
products ever developed. With it you can stay in contact with your office, your home,
emergency services and others, wherever service is provided.
This chapter contains important information for the safe and reliable use of the
SAMBA3G-E modem. Please read this chapter carefully before starting to use the
cellular engine SAMBA3G.
2.1
General information
Your SAMBA3G-E device utilizes the GSM standard for cellular technology. GSM is a
newer radio frequency („RF“) technology than the current FM technology that has
been used for radio communications for decades. The GSM standard has been
established for use in the European community and elsewhere. Your SAMBA3G-E is
actually a low power radio transmitter and receiver. It sends out and receives radio
frequency energy. When you use your modem, the cellular system handling your calls
controls both the radio frequency and the power level of your cellular modem.
2.2
Exposure to RF energy
There has been some public concern about possible health effects of using a GSM
modem. Although research on health effects from RF energy has focused for many
years on the current RF technology, scientists have begun research regarding newer
radio technologies, such as GSM. After existing research had been reviewed, and after
compliance to all applicable safety standards had been tested, it has been concluded
that the product is fit for use.
If you are concerned about exposure to RF energy there are things you can do to
minimize exposure. Obviously, limiting the duration of your calls will reduce your
exposure to RF energy. In addition, you can reduce RF exposure by operating your
cellular modem efficiently by following the guidelines below.
2.3
Driving
Check the laws and regulations on the use of cellular devices in the area where you
drive. Always obey them. Also, when using your modem while driving, please pay full
attention to driving, pull off the road and park before making or answering a data call if
driving conditions so require. When applications are prepared for mobile use they
should fulfil road-safety instructions of the current law!
2.4
Electronic devices
Most electronic equipment, for example in hospitals and motor vehicles is shielded from
RF energy. However, RF energy may affect some malfunctioning or improperly shielded
electronic equipment.

GUIDE
VERSION 1.0.0
Vehicle electronic equipment
Check your vehicle manufacturer’s representative to determine if any on board
electronic equipment is adequately shielded from RF energy.
2.6
Medical electronic equipment
Consult the manufacturer of any personal medical devices (such as pacemakers,
hearing aids, etc.) to determine if they are adequately shielded from external RF
energy.
Turn your SAMBA3G-E device OFF in health care facilities when any regulations posted
in the area instruct you to do so. Hospitals or health care facilities may be using RF
monitoring equipment.
2.7
Aircraft
Turn your SAMBA3G-E OFF before boarding any aircraft. Use it on the ground only with
crew permission. Do not use it in the air.
To prevent possible interference with aircraft systems, Federal Aviation Administration
(FAA) regulations require you to have permission from a crew member to use your
modem while the plane is on the ground. To prevent interference with cellular systems,
local RF regulations prohibit using your modem whilst airborne.
2.8
Children
Do not allow children to play with your SAMBA3G-E device. It is not a toy. Children
could hurt themselves or others (by poking themselves or others in the eye with the
antenna, for example). Children could damage the modem or make calls that
increase your modem bills.
2.9
Blasting areas
To avoid interfering with blasting operations, turn your unit OFF when in a “blasting
area” or in areas posted: "turn off two-way radio". Construction crew often uses remote
control RF devices to set off explosives.
2.10 Potentially explosive atmospheres
Turn your SAMBA3G-E device OFF when in any area with a potentially explosive
atmosphere. It is rare, but your modems or their accessories could generate sparks.
Sparks in such areas could cause an explosion or fire resulting in bodily injury or even
death.
Areas with a potentially explosive atmosphere are often, but not always, clearly
marked. They include fuelling areas such as petrol stations; below decks on boats; fuel
or chemical transfer or storage facilities; and areas where the air contains chemicals or
particles, such as grain, dust or metal powders.
Do not transport or store flammable gas, liquid or explosives, in the compartment of
your vehicle, which contains your modem or accessories.
Before using your modem in a vehicle powered by liquefied petroleum gas (such as
propane or butane) ensure that the vehicle complies with the relevant fire and safety
regulations of the country in which the vehicle is to be used.
