Easily share 3G Internet access and keep your whole mobile office connected with the innovative VKOM 351W. This fully portable Wi-Fi 3G router shares a single 3G connection with multiple Wi-Fi devices in the office or on the go, for truly mobile and flexible wireless productivity.
“Mobile connectivity in the form of 3G is becoming the connection medium of choice in South Africa for a number of reasons. It is quick to set up, more cost effective than ever, has no wires and does not require a fixed line to operate. This means that the office can be as mobile as its connectivity. However, sharing this connection between multiple devices influences the connection speed,” says Danie Janse van Rensburg, Technical Supervisor at Nology.
“The VKOM 351W makes 3G the ideal option for creating an office network. It serves as a hub for a 3G USB modem and turns a single connection into a Wi-Fi hotspot that allows up to 32 devices to connect wirelessly. It is easy to set up, with no CDs or software required, and it supports both static and dynamic IP options, with Wi-Fi speeds of up to 150Mbps,” he adds.
A built-in USB 2.0 port for a 3G or High Speed Uplink Packet Access (HSUPA) modem along with an integrated wireless access point and an intuitive web management interface offer all-in-one ease of use. No drivers are required, so the router works on any operating system to deliver a cross platform wireless network. The IP address is automatically supplied using a High Speed Card Punch (DHCP) Server, and security is included with Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP), Wireless Protected Access (WPA) and a built-in firewall. For enhanced mobility, the VKOM 351W offers both battery and mains power options. The Lithium-Ion batteries deliver longer operating times away from power, while an optional car charger enables the device to be powered up on the move.
“This makes the device perfect for a variety of users who need an easy-to-use, portable Wi-Fi router to share 3G connectivity. From mobile warriors to home users who want a simple, fast wireless network, or as a backup or permanent local connection in the office, the VKOM 351 is the ideal solution,” van Rensburg adds.
The VKOM 351W is available from various distributors, resellers and online stores. The 351W is compatible with most, but not all 3G USB modems available in South Africa.
