A global mobile communications specialist has developed a new cost-effective data router solution which it claims works anywhere in the world.

Buzz Wireless said that its Hubba X4 Global, which is a multiband, multi-protocol, dual SIM, LTE data router, is ideal for operators regularly crossing borders and it also interoperates with existing VSAT systems to switch seamlessly when out of range of shore-based networks.

“With the appropriate SIM card installed, users will be able to use this one piece of equipment to stay connected while travelling across borders,” said Steve Smith, managing director of Buzz Wireless.

Multiple networking

Mr Smith said that the Hubba X4 Global can also work with existing VSAT systems to switch seamlessly between in-port Wi-Fi networks to VSAT when out of range of shore-based networks.

It allows vessels stay connected across multiple networks up to 20 miles offshore in range of shore based mobile networks.

For vessels travelling further offshore, the Hubba X4 Global has an automatic switch over which automatically selects the vessel’s VSAT system when out of mobile range.

As soon as a new mobile network is detected the Hubba will activate automatically, switching from VSAT to Hubba. It will allow a maximum downlink speed of 300 Mbps and a maximum uplink speed of 50 Mbps.

Hubba X4 Global is an addition to the already available Hubba X4 Single and Hubba X4 Duo.
