Verizon has recently released their VZAccess utility for Linux.  VZAccess is the client side utility that manages connections for wireless broadband cards.

Since SLED 10 SP1 we have had support for cards like the Merlin v620 card, thanks to Greg KH, but now Verizon has gone one step further and given us nice easy to use graphical interface that allows you to connect to the network, activate new cards and shows you your signal strength.

Kudos to Verizon for listening to their customers!
