Since dual-mode (3G/4G + Wi-Fi) networking solutions are becoming increasingly popular nowadays, Time Warner has also decided to start offering its subscribers such a product. For this reason, it adopted the IntelliGo dual mode mobile hotspot from Sierra Wireless, which will be available on the Time Warner Cable 4G network with Road Runner Mobile, enabling internet speeds up to 6 Mbps (megabits per second) on the fastest mobile broadband network available.
The IntelliGo Mobile Hotspot provides access to both 3G and 4G networks
and can be connected wirelessly to any WiFi-enabled device, including media players, gaming devices, and cameras as well as notebook, netbook and tablet computers. Key features also include a LCD screen that provides important information such as battery life and internet connection status, as well as an easy-to-use web interface for customizing settings.
The IntelliGo Mobile Hotspot
also includes built-in GPS capability (on 3G), a MicroSD slot for up to 16 GB memory cards creating shared storage with up to five connected devices. Furthermore, the device delivers an extended Wi-Fi range of up to 150 feet and up to four hours active battery life, as well as USB charging capabilities.
“IntelliGo allows customers to really leverage the speed of the Time Warner Cable 4G network and the coverage of a national 3G network on all of their Wi-Fi enabled devices anywhere they go,” said Mike Roudi, GVP of Wireless Products
for Time Warner Cable. “We are excited to be bringing our customers IntelliGo and the ability to connect their favorite Wi-Fi devices to our 4G mobile network.”
“IntelliGo, the Sierra Wireless AirCard W801 Mobile Hotspot, provides a simple solution for those who live the modern digital lifestyle,” commented Mike O’Brien, Vice President, Network Operator Sales for Sierra Wireless. “With IntelliGo from Time Warner Cable and Sierra Wireless, it’s easy to keep all your devices connected, even on the go – cameras, media players, gaming devices, notebooks, and tablet computers can update and be updated in real time. We’re thrilled to be able to collaborate with Time Warner Cable in bringing IntelliGo to Road Runner Mobile customers.” We are just a few, but there are many of you, Softpedia users, out there.
