While out and about whether travelling to or between cites, or working at a restaurant we always use a cellular modem to connect to the Internet. There are times when there is a need for more than one Internet connection that is provided by a USB cellular based modem.
In the US, and perhaps other locations, folks have access to a small wireless device called a MiFi (Wikipedia) or mobile Wi-Fi. Since there are more and more smartphone and tablet handsets around us, the MiFi becomes more and more popular, and here we would like to introduce two of them, the Huawei E586 and Huawei E5836 MiFi. Yes, they both come from Huawei – one of the biggest telecom facilities providers.
Huawei E5836 MiFi Hotspot
With over four hours of battery life, the Huawei E5836 is ideal for business users and can also join you on long train journeys or a trip to the park, so that you can continue to work or communicate with your friends, wherever you are. E5836 can be placed anywhere around a room to ensure you’re receiving the strongest Wi-Fi connection possible.
A variety of Wi-Fi enabled devices can connect to the internet via Huawei E5836 including portable music devices and gaming consoles.
You can occupy yourself while a movie downloads, or two people can work independently on their own laptops in the same room, sharing the same WiFi connection.
But that’s not all. The Huawei E5836 supports plug-and-play and data transmission speeds up to 7.2 Mbps (downlink) and 5.76 Mbps (uplink). Music and videos can be uploaded or downloaded in seconds. With its built-in Micro SD card slot, the E5 can also serve as a USB disk.
Huawei E586 Mobile WiFi
The model is the first Mi-Fi device to feature next generation HSPA+ mobile broadband technology in the UK. As Three carries out network upgrade work, Mi-Fi broadband speeds are set to increase even further. Huawei E586 supports for HSPA+ 21.1Mbps downloads and 5.76Mbps uploads.
The broadband provider said the E586 Mi-Fi provides fast, secure Wi-Fi for tablets, laptops and handheld games consoles at the touch of a button. There’s also a microSD card slot, for sharing up to 32GB cards with WiFi-connected clients, together with a battery good for up to 4.5hrs active use. Usefully, a new button shows the WiFi SSID and password on-screen, meaning you no longer need to take off the battery cover in order to check them and get new devices online.
The E586 also comes with a neat little charging cradle, which should encourage you to keep it topped up, and an updated web interface UI. Now, it’s about $245 in some Huawei online store.
