Cambridge, MA (PRWEB) October 18, 2006
Omniwav Mobile, Inc. has announced a change in corporate identity as it continues to focus on mobile broadband solutions. WAAV (pronounced “wave”), the new identity, was originally a subdivision of the company focused on consumer products. WAAV released the CM3 Wi-Fi cellular router this summer priced at $399 initially targeting the mobile consumer market. Due to its popularity with enterprise customers, WAAV has now turned the initial consumer product into an expandable mobile broadband platform with capabilities for the entire spectrum of vehicles. The CM3 cellular router has an installed base in personal vehicles, enterprise and government fleets, as well as municipal buses. This platform enables WAAV to have the best-priced consumer solution for mobile broadband while supporting enterprise expandability.
The CM3 cellular router has added enormous value to the WAAV brand. WAAV made a splash this summer when it announced the CM3 cellular router for $399 with a 2-year activation on the Sprint network. The router provides a mobile broadband Internet connection turning any vehicle into its own Wi-Fi hotspot. Multiple users can connect simultaneously and surf the Internet while cruising the freeway. Unlike most other cellular routers on the market, the CM3 was designed specifically for the mobile environment. The ruggedized unit is fully self-contained and has external antenna connectors that are preferred for vehicular use. Additionally, WAAV’s cellular router has features generally limited to enterprise products: the optional GPS receiver allows remote tracking of an entire fleet while providing drivers secure broadband communication with the head office.
The company’s head office has been relocated to Cambridge, Massachusetts, close to the world’s leading academic and research institutions. Ongoing research includes features and enhancements to mobile broadband for consumers, enterprises, fleets, governments, and mass transit.
Consumers are purchasing the CM3 to have an Internet connection while on the road. As a productivity tool for executives, it enables individuals to stay in touch with the office while away. The WAAV CM3 cellular router allows car transit time to be used for personal pleasure as well. For families, children can enjoy the benefits of chatting on IM while on the road, playing Xbox 360 Live, or watching television from their SlingBoxTM while on the road. Packages for boats are also available.
Enterprises are installing broadband connections in their vehicles to increase the productivity of their mobile workforce and provide seamless connectivity for professionals who spend time on the road or outside the office. Carpooling commuters can get a head start on their workday. The built-in Wi-Fi hotspot provides repair personnel and service professionals secure access to their office-based intranet even while at a customer's location or on a telephone pole. An optional GPS receiver allows fleet managers to track their vehicles in real time thereby saving time and money for service calls, deliveries, and inventory routing. Enterprise management functions for large corporations are available.
Government agencies are equally excited about the WAAV CM3. As governments are pressured to become increasingly more efficient, the WAAV CM3 answers the call by replacing slow narrowband connections with broadband Internet access to mobile public service vehicles such as police cruisers, government officials, utility trucks, municipal buses, emergency command centers, fire trucks, ambulances, and military vehicles. Government employees can be connected while on the road, access databases faster, and use downtime in your vehicle more efficiently. In addition, a central office coordinator can manage a fleet of vehicles in real-time.
The WAAV CM3 is $399.00 on Sprint’s broadband network. For a limited time, an unlimited data plan is only $59.99 per month. Internet speeds average 400-800 Kbps with bursts over 2 Mbps. High speed service is currently available in more than 200 metro areas currently covering more than 150 million users in America and will be available nationwide soon.
