|Huawei Launches E355 Wi-Fi Data Card in India
IT News Online Staff
Huawei, an information and communications technology (ICT) solutions provider, has launched in India the Huawei E355 Data Card with Wi-Fi for five devices. The Huawei E355 Wi-Fi modem functions both as a data card for a single user and as a mobile Wi-Fi hotspot, which can simultaneously connect up to five Wi-Fi-enabled devices, allowing users to enjoy Internet connectivity anytime, anywhere.
The Huawei E355 Wi-Fi modem comes with a USB interface and unlike traditional data cards which can only be powered via a computer, the Huawei Wi-Fi modem series offer users the flexibility of powering with a variety of USB chargers, offering true on-the-go connectivity.
Developed for SOHO (small office home office), business professionals and families, the Huawei E355 Wi-Fi Modem offers faster HSPA+ 21 Mbps DL and 5.76 Mbps UL speed. Equipped with Type 3i technology the Huawei E355 Wi-Fi Data Card provides up to 20% more upload and download speed compared to non Type 3i devices, allowing users to experience faster browsing speed even if they are not in proper signal conditions or facing congestion in network.
In July this year, Huawei launched the world's first HiLink data Card E303Cs that automatically connects users to the Internet in as little as 15 seconds after the data card is inserted into the USB port, without the need for a tedious dial-in process, driver installation or manual configuration. This is up to 75% faster than products currently on the market.
Whether users are at home, or travelling with family in car, the Wi-Fi hotspot travels along with them, providing Internet connectivity continuously. The E355 supports connectivity for three different scenarios:
- Normal USB Modem: Connect with PC and access Internet for only one device
- Mobile Wi-Fi with PC: Connect with PC/laptop, activate Wi-Fi and access Internet
- Independent Mobile Wi-Fi: Connect with any USB Power adaptor and start using it as a Wi-Fi Hotspot
Victor Shanxin, President, Huawei Device India, said, "To empower millions of Indian SMEs and large families, Huawei is launching the world's first Wi-Fi Dongle, the Huawei E355 allowing users to connect 5 users at the same time, with its personal Wi-Fi zone. With the expanding usage of Internet by multiple family members on devices like gaming consoles, music pods, smarter TVs, tablets etc., we feel that the E355 Wi-Fi Data Card is ideally suited for the Internet hungry families. The Huawei E355 also offers flexibility for smaller business establishments to quickly connect a small team to Internet and start business on the go."
The E355 Wi-Fi Data Card expands Huawei open market data card range to five devices in the Indian market and comes at a price of Rs. 5499/-.
