Kyocera Wireless Corp. is launching its KR1 Mobile Router, which takes a single CDMA2000 1x Evolution Data Optimized (EV-DO) broadband connection and creates a mobile Wi-Fi hot spot for multiple PCs using 802.11g technology to deliver download speeds of up to 2.4 Mbps.
The KR1 Mobile Router can be powered by any PCMCIA card using EV-DO 3G wireless technology, including the Kyocera Passport KPC650 EV-DO PC card, or by most USB-enabled EV-DO handsets.
The device was developed in conjunction with D-Link and it will carry the D-Link brand on its front housing.
For many applications, the KR1 Mobile Router can eliminate the need for high-cost and fixed DSL or cable connections. Ideal for small- and medium-sized businesses, enterprises or household use, the KR1 Mobile Router provides security controls, such as 128-bit WEP encryption and an advanced firewall for protection against viruses, hacking and identity theft.
Measuring 21.5cm x 13.5cm x 2.3cm and weighing 453 grams, the KR1 Mobile Router includes a configuration wizard and Web-based device management using Internet Explorer 6, Netscape Navigator 6 and other JAVA-enabled browsers.
The KR1 Mobile Router will be available for US$299.99.
