Ultra-fast, Global Connectivity on-the-go!
SAN DIEGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug. 31, 2017--
Novatel Wireless, Inc. - an Inseego Corp. company (Nasdaq:INSG) and
leading provider of mobile broadband and connected solutions for the
Internet of Things (IoT) - today announced the launch of their new
Global Mobile Hotspot, MiFi 7000.
“Novatel Wireless introduced the first MiFi device in the United States
in 2009. This next generation MiFi is an important building block in our
growth strategy. With advanced features and LTE bands that support the
requirements of domestic and international service providers, we are
launching a truly global product that will enable the MiFi 7000 to be
deployed around the world,” says Steve Linke, VP of Sales for Novatel
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.
"The launch of the MiFi 7000 is an important milestone for the company.
We now have a highly differentiated product that supports new markets
and service providers around the world allowing us to grow our market
share beyond US and Canada. Additional launches are planned for the near
future and we are currently engaged with carriers in Latin America and
Europe to deploy this exciting new product," says Mr. Linke.
