Sep 30, 2013 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
Novatel Wireless, Inc., a provider of intelligent wireless solutions, introduces MiFi Home, an all-in-one solution that replaces wired voice and Internet options for phone and 4G LTE Internet connectivity in the home, small office, and remote work station.
According to a release, MiFi Home delivers both digital telephone service and Internet connectivity in one combined portable device and provides wireless carriers an alternative to bundle voice and data rate plans and services for the home and small office customers.
-Keep your phone and disconnect your landline. By simply plugging an existing landline cordless or corded telephone into MiFi Home, users can have the convenience of a telephone connection without their landline. MiFi Home users can keep their current phone number or get a new one. And wireless carriers now can offer an alternative to legacy fixed line services. MiFi Home will even maintain the ability to make calls during power outages with a battery powered backup providing both talk and standby time.
-Expand in-home data access. MiFi Home not only converges fixed line and wireless voice, it also features expanded capability for all in-home data services. It can connect up to 10 Wi-Fi enabled devices such as laptops, computers, tablets, eReaders, gaming consoles, music players, printers and more and also has three Ethernet ports for connecting printers and network storage devices.
-Versatile solution for small businesses. MiFi Home is also a solution for small businesses. Whether you need a home office, a mobile office or you're setting up a temporary remote work site, MiFi Home can help businesses to stay connected with simple setup. By simply plugging in a phone or other office devices into the Ethernet ports, the user has immediate access to both data and voice services including caller ID, call forwarding, call waiting, call holding and three-way calling.
MiFi Home is VoLTE-capable and is upgradeable over-the-air with VoLTE services upon carrier availability. By using an all-IP packet-based service for voice and data, VoLTE not only provides significant cost savings, it will allow operators to recover less efficient circuit switch 2G channels for additional data capacity. Enabling simultaneous voice and data traffic on LTE in a unified format, VoLTE provides operators with an IP connection between their mobile equipment and their core network. VoLTE also enables new services such as video calling, multi-device, single number and multimedia sharing services across mobile broadband devices.
"We are very excited to be introducing MiFi Home, our first 4G LTE converged voice and data solution for in-home and small office connectivity. MiFi Home has something for everyone. MiFi Home will let users replace their landline connections for voice and data and consolidate them into a single wireless service. We believe MiFi Home will help open a new category of subscribers, contribute to the continued growth of the addressable broadband market and create a unique opportunity for carriers. We are very proud to be launching this product category first with Verizon with their 4G LTE Broadband Router with Voice which was made commercially available earlier today," said Peter Leparulo, CEO of Novatel Wireless.
Novatel Wireless, Inc. is a company focusing on the design and development of intelligent wireless solutions based on 2G, 3G and 4G technologies.
