There’s good news for companies using wireless broadband through different mobile operators worldwide.
Top Global USA Inc. on Tuesday introduced its dual mode router that accommodates the EVDO Rev.A and HSUPA protocols. The company sells to vertical markets through channel partners.
Carriers including Verizon Communications Inc., Sprint Nextel Corp. and Alltel use EVDO Rev.A to provide wireless broadband. AT&T Inc., on the other hand, runs on the HSUPA protocol. Top Global’s ability to combine those protocols could cut costs for companies that don’t want to buy separate equipment for accessing various carriers’ networks. The router – the MB9000 – also provides “anytime” Internet connectivity because of the dual-mode support, Top Global said.
Top Global said the MB900 works with all current 3G standards and networks in more than 40 countries. It comes with firewall and VPN; networking monitoring; packetization priority; and more.
