Franklin Wireless Corp. ( OTCBB : FKWL ), the market leader in multi-mode wireless modems for 3G and 4G broadband data communications, today announced the launch of its new Smart USB Hotspot series of wireless devices. This groundbreaking family of devices can be used as traditional USB modems or as portable Wi-Fi mobile hotspots for wireless connectivity. Users of this innovative product line may access wireless broadband networks by inserting them into the USB port of a laptop, tablet or other device. To enable the Wi-Fi mobile hotspot feature, users can insert them into an external power source with the use of an A/C adaptor, car cigarette lighter adaptor or battery pack, instantly transforming them into a Wi-Fi mobile hotspot available to multiple users.
A dual-mode LTE/CDMA version of the Smart USB Hotspot was launched in October with C Spire Wireless, a leading US wireless carrier. The Company believes that the Franklin Wireless 2-in-1 Smart USB Hotspot series is a first for the worldwide 4G market.
The Smart USB Hotspot series is exceptionally easy to use and has many convenient and innovative features including:
• 2-in-1 design: Two products in a single lightweight and easy to carry USB modem form
• Allows for multi-user access over Wi-Fi networks or more secure access via USB
connection for a single user.
• Web-based user interface requires no software to be installed onto the host device to
which any of the Smart USB Hotspots are connected.
• Devices may be used as Wi-Fi mobile hotspots wherever any power is available.
“It is with a great deal of pride that Franklin Wireless announces the launch of the new 2-in-1 Smart USB Hotspot series,” said OC Kim, president of Franklin Wireless. “This marks an important milestone for our Company as we continue to pioneer new and innovative solutions for our carrier partners and their customers. Users of these devices will be impressed with how easy they are to use as well as the convenience and versatility that comes with their 2-in-1 functionality. The Smart USB Hotspot series takes mobile wireless connectivity to the next level by keeping people connected at home, at the office or while traveling down the road in a vehicle. The Wi-Fi mobile hotspot feature is truly innovative because it allows these devices to transcend the traditional USB modem world by providing multiple users with wireless connectivity from one device.”
