SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. — CTIA Wireless IT has introduced @Road Mobile HotSpot, a Wi-Fi device that can transform any vehicle into a mobile hot spot.
By wirelessly connecting a laptop or internet-enabled handset into the @Road Mobile HotSpot, mobile workers can instantly access manuals, customer records, update inventory, place orders or review their next assignment, without having to seek out an existing, stationary hot spot. From any internet-connected PC, dispatchers can see when jobs are complete and provide their customers with the actual time that a technician will arrive at their home or place of business, instead of making them wait.
Mobile HotSpot device utilizes a Linux operating system and also serves as an enterprise-grade router that offers automatic channel selection for remote access points, and security features including firewall, access control fillers and 802.1x security protocols. @Road Mobile HotSpot is compatible with both 802.11b and 802.11g protocols and is expected to support the emerging 802.11i standard.
