Both wireless access and VoIP aren’t always as accessible on the road as business travelers would like or need. SMC’s new device is an all-in-one travel networking kit which will allow travelers to take control of their needs more easily. The SMCWTVG, or Wireless Travel Voice Gateway, combines a wireless gateway and VoIP analog telephone adapter into one small and easily portable device. It comes in a pouch along with all the cables you need and an AC adapter.
As a gateway it is a high-speed wireless router that can operate in three different modes. It can be an 802.11b/g access point, a wireless client for PC connections to Wi-Fi networks, or as a wireless repeater. It is easy to set up and secure, with a firewall, VPN pass-through and multiple forms of encryption. It connects to the ADSL, Cable or wired network using a built-in 10/100 BaseT port.
The SMCWTVG will be available starting April 1 in the U.S. for $129.99.
