Vodafone, Linksys and Cisco Systems today announced the launch of the 3G/UMTS Router, a new product that provides high speed mobile data connectivity for teams working on the move.
The 3G/UMTS Router enables teams of up to five people to use the wireless LAN capability already built in to most laptop computers to access high speed mobile data services provided by the Vodafone 3G network.
This highly portable, cost effective and simple to use product is ideal for businesses in sectors such as accountancy, construction or media who regularly have teams working together away from their main office and who need easy access through their laptop to high speed internet services or corporate applications.

What does the author mean with this quote :

"In case you wonder - yes, this device is similar to O2's Surf@home wireless UMTS router. However, the O2 Surf@home router is fixed to one location (through the zoning on the SIM card) and therefore it can not be used to create spontaneous networks. An opportunity O2 missed when they locked down the Surf@home box."

And what about the OPTION Surf@Home2  http://www.o2online.de/o2/kunden/techni … t-art.html

Thanks for any reply,

I mean what I wrote: you can not carry the box but O2 locks the location through the SIM.
Regarding the *Possio* box wink what do you want to know?

Whilst everyone admits that this device is really great, one common lament is that it is not entirely mobile, i.e. you still have to plug it into mains.

I have managed to overcome this,
I have enclosed the router (and 3G card) in an air tight, shock proof, and durable Storm Case. Added a few printed circuit boards, a battery, cooling system and now have a great solution that has been out in the field (so to speak) for about 2 months now. (we use them on film sets on location)

The battery life is about 8 to 10 hours and the system runs equally well on mains.

I will be most happy to answer any questions or enquiries about this should anyone care to find out more. My email address is brent@wkitchens.co.za or +27 21 913 6708

I have taken some crude pictures during the developement and put them at the following URL:
