As the inventor and the world's first company introduced the 3G mobile router, Top Global had developed and patented the flexible MobileBridge™ platform which serves as a gateway/router that links Third Generation (3G) Cellular network and Wi-Fi/LAN networks. Leveraging our patented technologies, hardware and software platforms, Top Global is leading the market again with dual mode 3G USB modem and WiFi Hot Spot reference design.
Using an mechanical switch the user can easily switch the 3GSport to work as an USB modem or as an 3G router. In 3G USB modem mode, the 3GSpot can be plug into the USB port of any desktop or laptop computer. Then the user can access Internet just like using any other USB modem dongle. When working in 3G router mode, the 3GSpot will automatically establish internet connectivity through the 3G network, then it broadcasts its SSID just like any Wi-Fi hot spot to enable a number of authorized computers or devices to get Internet access.
Key Features and Benefits of the 3GSpot include:
• Dual working modes as USB modem or Cellular Router. Can be easily switched to become
an 3G USB modem and 3G mobile router by the end user
• Universal 3G software configurable radio design to support all 3G Cellular Standards.
Modular hardware designs to support a variety of wireless software radio technologies
including 3G/4G Cellular, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, in multiple frequency bands.
