Novatel Wireless Debuts MiFi 2372 Intelligent Mobile Hotspot

Novatel Wireless. It's a company that you may not be familiar with, but they're responsible for a phenomenon known as the MiFi. These portable wireless hotspots have made broadband access much easier to find on the road, and since they operate with a battery, they can actually provide Internet to more than just a single device, which is something a typical USB stick WWAN card cannot do.

The company's newest Intelligent Mobile Hotspot is the MiFi 2372, which is pre-loaded with the new MiFi OS and applications "aiming to help businesses benefit from secure mobile broadband and providing access to information and resources anytime, any place." An increasing number of business applications and widgets such as Auto-VPN, NovaDrive™ for cloud storage, SMS capabilities, data-usage widget and Geosearch are available; rather than installing and licensing software for each connecting Wi-Fi device (laptops, netbooks, tablets) the applications reside on the MiFi device and no installation is necessary on the connecting devices.

The MiFi OS and applications are today available for carriers to roll out with the MiFi 2372 and MiFi 2352, and the new one is on display this week at CTIA. There's also a microSDHC card slot, support for up to 5 Wi-Fi connections, rechargeable Li-ion battery, GPS-enabled and a 30 ft. range. No pricing information is available, and no carrier information is available either. Hopefully that'll clear up later.

Novatel Wireless Demonstrates MiFi® Intelligent Mobile Hotspot Solution for the Mobile Professionals
 
With on-device applications, secure communication is delivered to any device connecting to the MiFi network

SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Novatel Wireless, Inc. (Nasdaq: NVTL), a leading provider of wireless broadband access solutions, today demonstrated its MiFi® 2372 Intelligent Mobile Hotspot for the mobile professional at CTIA Enterprise and Applications, 2010. The MiFi 2372 showcased is pre-loaded with the new MiFi® OS and applications aiming to help businesses benefit from secure mobile broadband and providing access to information and resources anytime, any place.

Novatel Wireless MiFi OS supports a flexible set of applications on a technology agnostic platform to complement on-the-go connectivity with IT and security needs and provides a predictable cost structure that allows businesses to focus on their core business while leaving the management and support requirements of a mobility solution to the MiFi device.

The MiFi Intelligent Mobile Hotspot consolidates all your connectivity demands in one economical solution. An increasing number of business applications and widgets such as Auto-VPN, NovaDrive™ for cloud storage, SMS capabilities, data-usage widget and Geosearch will also provide significant cost-savings and enhanced productivity to the mobile professional. Rather than installing and licensing software for each connecting Wi-Fi device (laptops, netbooks, tablets) the applications reside on the MiFi device and no installation is necessary on the connecting devices. In addition, one software license is being shared across the multiple connecting devices with the benefit of reducing IT management costs and complexity. It improves access to corporate resources and information for the mobile workforce with one device in a secure and cost-effective manner.

"Mobile access to corporate resources significantly increases productivity. However, secure access to data is paramount. In addition, businesses are challenged by managing the rapidly changing device eco-system – constantly introducing new devices such as laptops, iPads and netbooks," said Rob Hadley, CMO of Novatel Wireless. "To business and mobile professionals, the MiFi Intelligent Mobile Hotspot provides a simple and secure mobile solution for accessing their corporate data.  It eliminates overhead associated with setup and maintenance and provides an extra level of security for multiple devices in a cost effective way," Rob Hadley, continued.

The MiFi OS and applications are today available for carriers to roll out with the MiFi 2372 and MiFi 2352. The expanding eco-system of MiFi applications and widgets are offered bundled or separately and can be tailored according to how carriers wish to offer the MiFi Intelligent Mobile Hotspot to their business and consumer customers.

Novatel Wireless will demonstrate its MiFi® 2372 Intelligent Mobile Hotspot for the mobile professional during CTIA Enterprise and Applications, October 6-8, 2010, Moscone Center West, San Francisco, CA at booth # 501.
