New 3G Gateways to Bridge Cell to LAN/WLAN

By Glenn Fleishman

Axesstel, Sprint show new cell bridges at CTIA: At the cell industry trade show, it’s not all about the cellular network. Sprint demonstrated a Linksys router that accepts any Sprint EVDO card and bridges it to an 802.11g Wi-Fi network. The device will run less than $200 and will work with existing service plans ($60/month for voice subscribers with two-year commitment; $80/month otherwise). Sprint will also offer a USB EVDO dongle later this year.

Axesstel, an equipment maker, announced a series of EVDO gateways designed for various frequencies and purposes. The gateways accept an EVDO card on the one hand to work with basic 1xRTT and EVDO networks. RJ11 phone jacks allow up to four regular landline phones and one fax machine to connect to place analog-style calls. A Wi-Fi gateway and four-port 10/100 Mbps Ethernet switch is also built in. There’s also GPS and E911 service. Pricing isn’t noted as this a product cell operators would resell to their customers.

Thanks for the coverage on our new gateways, Glenn. I just wanted to clarify a few points. Our new MV300 Series gateways are integrated with EV-DO technology and backward compatible to 1X so an EV-DO Card is not necessary. There are 2 RJ-ll jacks. In order to connect 4 landline phones you need to use both RJ-11 jacks or you could plug in 2 phones and one fax machine. The 3G gateways provide support for GPS and E911 but the service is network dependant. Thanks again for covering our exciting new 3G Gateways!
