Multiple-Connection 3G Cellular Router enables the President, Staff, and the Press to Connect to the Internet While Traveling to the Inauguration

I am honored to have our company's products chosen for such a momentous occasion in history

WAAV®, the mobile cellular router company responsible for putting wireless Internet on Boston's commuter trains, Greyhound, and other mass transit operators, announced today that Amtrak has selected the AirBox® X4 multiple-connection 3G cellular router to provide wireless Internet service to the Presidential inaugural train. Multiple WAAV AirBoxes will be keeping the President-elect, guests, and press connected to the Internet while in transit, allowing them to check email, message supporters, surf the Internet, and check for the latest online news stories. Amtrak officials tested WAAV's AirBox late last year and recently chose WAAV's latest product, the AirBox X4, the world's first quad connection cellular router, for Presidential use.

The technology to support this level of mobile Internet service was first introduced by WAAV, Inc. in 2005. AirBox cellular routers create a WiFi hotspot by converting 3G cellular signals into a wireless Internet connection. The AirBox X4, soon to be available to the public, uses four cellular connections in parallel to provide maximum performance, bandwidth, and coverage in mass transit applications.

"I am honored to have our company's products chosen for such a momentous occasion in history," commented Brian J. Smith, president of WAAV, Inc. "The team at Amtrak has worked diligently to make this happen, and we are thankful to be a part of this project." WAAV is a leading provider of wireless Internet to the mass transit industry, having been chosen recently by the Massachusetts Bay Transit Authority to provide wireless Internet on Boston's commuter rail in addition to providing mobile WiFi services for many other mass transit authorities.
