Option Globetrotter III 3G Wireless Router

Option N.V. the wireless technology company, today announced that it is shipping a new 3G wireless router to mobile operators, distributors and Value Added Resellers. Offering businesses and households a versatile communications hub that creates an instant Wi-Fi hotspot the GlobeSurfer III enables multiple users to share a superfast HSPA broadband connection.

A USB interface turns the GlobeSurfer III into a central hub: connecting an external hard disk drive via the device?s USB interface allows users to share or back-up important files to a central storage system; multimedia files such as MP3?s or AVI?s can be streamed across the Wi-Fi network; a central printer can be shared by all members of the household or business. Basic and advanced functionality is all managed from the device?s intuitive user interface incorporating a vibrant colour display indicating functions, events and device activities.

Option placed significant emphasis on product design during the development of the GlobeSurfer III: the device will not look out of place among the many stylish consumer electronic devices commonly found in the modern home. With its completely wireless configuration the GlobeSurfer III can be wall-mounted or sit on a desktop or shelf. This allows the router to be placed anywhere in the home, office or workshop to ensure optimum coverage and performance.

Based on the Qualcomm 7225 chipset, this device offers HSUPA upload speeds up to 5.76 Mbps and download speeds up to 7.2 Mbps, as well as AWS support for US markets ? making it a front-runner in the market.

New features and ease-of-use raise router performance to new heights and eliminate the barriers to adoption among households and small businesses wishing to share a high speed HSPA connection. The GlobeSurfer III reiterates the role of wireless broadband as a real alternative to DSL.

Re: Option Globetrotter III 3G Wireless Router

There is one cable to contend with though - the all important power cable, and the Globetrotter III's functions can be accessed through the integrated color display. Option has opted (here I go again, playing on the same verb twice) for Qualcomm's 7225 chipset to run the proceedings, capable of touching download speeds of 7.2Mbps and upload speeds of up to 5.76Mbps.

Re: Option Globetrotter III 3G Wireless Router

This device comes with USB connectivity that enables users to hook up external hard drives for data back up purposes or even to share content over the Wi-Fi link. You can even connect a printer so that everyone who has access to the network will be able to kill a few more trees with their freshly printed reports
