Novatel introduces Global Mobile Hotspot

Novatel Wireless, Inc. – an Inseego Corp. company (Nasdaq:INSG) and provider of mobile broadband and connected solutions for the Internet of Things (IoT) – has announced the launch of its new Global Mobile Hotspot, MiFi 7000, the company said.

Mobile hotspots continue to be an important device category for wireless operators looking to grow data revenues by providing anytime access. According to a recent report from Cisco, global mobile data traffic grew an estimated 63 percent in 2016 and is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 47 percent from 2016 to 2021. They go on to say that mobile connected tablets and PCs will each generate 8.0 GB of traffic per month, a doubling over the 2016 average of 3.4 GB per month.

Available now in Canada from Bell Mobility and Sasktel, it is the first MiFi branded mobile hotspot to include a 2.4-inch color touchscreen, real simultaneous dual-band Wi-Fi and hacking prevention, among other high-performance features such as QuickCharge® technology and MiFi Share, a file-sharing feature accessed via a USB thumb drive.

With a more powerful battery supporting up to 24 hours of use on a single charge, the MiFi 7000 securely connects up to 15 devices on the most advanced LTE networks as well as falls back to HSPA+/UMTS and GPRS/EDGE networks. The MiFi 7000 also offers a built-in universal charging feature for external devices such as smartphones and tablets needing a battery boost, without compromising performance and connectivity.
