Still searching for an Internet hotspot for your Wi-Fi Pad or PSP? Still despair over the multiple wireless price packages for your family’s various devices? Then why not try a mobile hotspot?
Mobile hotspots are the latest thing in consumer electronics. Supporting high-speed wireless access, with the ability to convert wireless signals to Wi-Fi signals, they create private hotspots, giving you the joy and convenience of going online on multiple devices anytime anyplace. Typically mobile hotspots are compact, convenient to carry, come with their own battery, support multiple user access, and can provide a single subscription that allows multiple devices to pull from a common pool of data. Some also support microSD cards, allowing the network devices to share the data on the microSD card.
From the inception of mobile hotspots in 2009, mobile hotspots sales have seen enormous growth. According to the forecasts of US company ABI, in 2014 the overall shipment volume of the mobile hotspot market will reach 56 million units, with terminal retail sales close to 7 billion dollars.
The main brands in the field of mobile hotspots include Huawei, Samsung, Novetal, Sierra, etc, but Huawei’s mobile Wi-Fi is without doubt top of the tree. It is understood that Huawei has mobile hotspot products in all popular mobile communication systems from LTE, and WiMAX’s two types of 4G to UMTS, CDMA2000, and TD-SCDMA’s three types of 3G. At this September’s Macworld Asia event, Huawei exhibited an entire series of hotspot products including accessories.
Liu Xiaobin, vice president of Huawei Device’s mobile broadband product line, said: “As times change, individuals and families have more and more portable consumer electronic devices with Wi-Fi access, such as iPads, PSPs, and laptops, and all these devices must be able to go online at any time. Consumers do not want to pay a separate Internet tariff for each device and so the mobile hotspot was born. In addition, it can be used for multiple people to share networks. Huawei’s mobile hotspot is also known as E5, which stands for the five ’eases’. Specifically, Hotspots are easy to use, easy to carry, easy to connect, easy to share, and easy to manage. Looking forward, we will proceed according to the needs of the consumer, developing even more innovative and practical functions, such as multimedia sharing, Wi-Fi/3G dual uplink access, and so on. People within the industry reckon that mobile hotspots will gradually replace traditional data cards, and this replacement will start with developed countries.”
At September’s Macworld Asia 2011, analyst Jeff from the consultancy firm ABI reported on mobile hotspots, identifying safety, portability, long battery life, and the ability to support multiple user access as four key technical requirements, and promoting Huawei’s 21 Mbps Mobile WiFi E586. Jeff pointed out that Huawei’s E586 uses the chipset researched and developed by Huawei itself, supports chip-level encryption, and has greatly improved safety capabilities.
