CES® 2017: Next Gen MiFi® Mobile Hotspot Lands on Verizon Jan 12

Novatel Wireless - an Inseego Corp. company (Nasdaq:INSG) and leading provider of mobile broadband and connected solutions for the Internet of Things (IoT) - today announced the launch of the new Verizon Jetpack® Mobile Hotspot MiFi 7730L. Available January 12, 2017 exclusively from Verizon Wireless (Nasdaq:VZ) online at www.verizonwireless.com and at Verizon Wireless retail stores for $99.99 with a two-year contract, it is the first MiFi brand mobile hotspot in North America to include a 2.4-inch color touchscreen, real simultaneous dual-band Wi-Fi and hacking prevention, among other high-performance features.

“Our MiFi for Verizon, released in 2015, was the most advanced mobile hotspot we had ever built,” says Novatel Wireless CTO Stephen Sek whose company introduced the first MiFi device in the United States in May 2009. “Raising the bar even higher, we took the award-winning design and features of the previous generation and enhanced it to improve functionality, security, speed and customer experience. Supercharged with the power of Verizon’s 4G LTE advanced network, the MiFi 7730L is now the newest, most advanced connectivity device on the market and a must-have for every professional on the go.”

According to a recent report from Technavio, the global mobile hotspot category is forecasted to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 19 percent through 2020 due in part to the rapid digitization of enterprises and organizations, the emergence of next-generation wireless networks and an increase in business travel. Combined with the augmented adoption of BYOD policies, it is critical to ensure devices have secure, high-speed access.

The MiFi 7730L is the only Verizon Wireless Jetpack to offer a large, color touchscreen, QuickCharge® technology and MiFi Share, a file-sharing feature accessed via a USB thumb drive. With a more powerful battery supporting up to 24 hours of use on a single charge, the MiFi 7730L securely connects up to 15 devices to the Verizon next gen network and offers a built-in universal charging feature for external devices such as smartphones and tablets needing a battery boost, without compromising performance and connectivity.

"The Novatel Wireless MiFi team is excited to deliver the next premium MiFi product to Verizon’s industry-leading device portfolio," says Steve Linke, Novatel Wireless Director of Sales. "The MiFi 7730L is built with the latest technology to leverage Verizon’s network advancements and has the ability to stay connected all day making this Jetpack essential for individuals and businesses looking for secure, reliable connectivity wherever and whenever they need it."

  • 2.4-inch color touchscreen

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.
