CradlePoint has teamed with Clearwire to develop the rover 4G prepaid hotspot device (puck shaped) to work over Clearwire's 4G WiMAX network. CradlePoint devices have the ability to do a firmware upgrade to take advantage of the 4G network speeds.
Their CBA 750 (cellular bridging adapter) has 2.4ghz built in N radio along side the 2.5ghz WiMAX radio - it is a plug and play device that can provide a failover option for small businesses with unreliable DSL or Cable internet connections. The RF in the CradlePoint devices are typically 30 dBm 'quieter' than FCC rules require.
WiPipe -> built on a NetBSD product platform, with support for 150+ modems & cellular networks. There may be future plans to build a function to allow the cellular network connection allow you an OOB connection to the networking devices' console port.
