D-Link International Pte Ltd, one of the world’s biggest suppliers of networking products has updated the DIR-506L Pocket Cloud Router to include new features including the 3G card support and mobile charger function for greater mobility.
Jonathan Quek, Marketing Director of D-Link International Pte Ltd commented, “Portable and versatile, the Pocket Cloud Router gives users the functionality of a router, access point, wireless repeater, Wi-Fi Hotspot and network storage drive, all from the same compact device which fits in your pocket. Now with the 3G card support and support for up to six clients, the firmware will allow users to share high speed mobile internet from anywhere by connecting a 4G LTE/3G USB dongle to the Pocket Cloud Router. For users travelling with multiple devices, the mobile charger function will come in handy to keep the devices charged up on the road.”
Multiple modes for different uses
The pocket cloud router offers four different modes for use in different situations, making it the ideal travel accessory for relaxing vacations with friends or family and for use in home offices.
Router – the wireless router function gives users the option to share broadband Internet connection wirelessly up to 150Mbps. With 3G card support, users can simply insert a 3G data card from any telecom provider to share the Internet connection, creating a wireless network anywhere, anytime.
Access Point – besides creating connectivity amongst different users, the router can also act as an access point to create connectivity amongst wireless devices in a private network. This will allow users to share files easily across different spaces with more security.
Repeater – this function allows an existing wireless network in homes or offices to be extended, for greater and seamless coverage.
Wi-Fi Hotspot – it allows users to share an Internet connection coming from a wireless hotspot, either at a hotel, airport or café. This configuration also provides users with a second layer of security when connecting to public hotspots, by hiding connected devices from foreign devices on the public network, and keeping them in their own private network.
On top of that, the repeater and Wi-Fi hotspot modes also allow users to connect to any device, such as a Smart TV or game console in hotel rooms, via the 10/100 Ethernet Port, enabling it to connect to the network wirelessly.
