Superior User Experience • With so many other software processes and applications running at all times, a smartphone may not always prioritize the WiFi antenna or WiFi radio connection. A mobile hotspot, on the other hand, is designed strictly for that purpose. The antennas, radios, throughput, and connection with the mobile network are all optimized for providing reliable, high-performance network connections to mobile devices. Extend The Life Of Older 3G Devices • If a customer bought a 3G tablet or smartphone a year ago, for example, they can move up to 4G data speeds using a 4G hotspot and a WiFi connection. Spare Your Phone’s Battery • Using a mobile hotspot means never draining your battery just to stay connected. A mobile hotspot screen requires far less power, and it is built with a larger battery than most smartphones. Mobile hotspots also can enter a sleep state to conserve energy when there is no activity—something a smartphone typically can’t do as effectively, as it needs to maintain a network connection to accept incoming calls. Better WiFi Range • Mobile hotspots typically provide better range, allowing users to maintain a connection up to 45 metres in any direction, even as they move about. Safeguard Your Personal And Confidential Data • In a world where personal and confidential data is targeted by increasingly sophisticated threats, mobile hotspots can also offer some added peace of mind. After all, when you share a WiFi connection with others by allowing them to connect to your smartphone, you are potentially exposing all the information on that device. A hotspot isn’t a gateway into your personal life— just a dedicated Internet connection. Connect More Devices & People • Most mobile phones on most networks support just a few connected devices. NETGEAR AirCard Mobile Hotspots can simultaneously connect as many as 15 WiFi devices such as your smartphone, tablet, and laptop while out and about.
