Verizon Announces LTE-Advanced is Now Available!

LTE-Advanced has been coming up a lot over the past few months. This new LTE technology allows cellular carriers to aggregate, or combine, multiple cellular frequencies therefore providing users with faster bandwidth. AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint have already been rolling out this technology as early as 2014. Just today, Verizon announced they now have LTE-Advanced available in 461 cities across the US. With this development, they’re promising 50% faster speeds. Tami Erwin, head of operations for Verizon’s wireless unit, says the following on LTE-Advanced, “Verizon LTE Advanced works like a turbocharger on an engine. Speed boosts kick in when you need it most, with big data use. That’s when you get the big peak boost of Verizon LTE Advanced.”

Per Verizon’s announcement, the upgrade comes at no additional cost or upgrade requirement to their customers. It utilizes two- and three-channel carrier aggregation across its 700MHz, AWS (1700/2100MHz) and PCS (1900MHz) spectrum. They calculated peak download speeds of 225mbps with two-channel carrier aggregation and over 300mbps with three-channel carrier aggregation. In comparison to what you may get without this new technology (average download is only about 5 to 12mbps), that’s quite a significant increase!

Just keep in mind that with this new technology, you must have a cellular device that is capable of supporting it. Even if your device supports all the necessary frequencies, it doesn’t mean that it is capable of aggregating them. Verizon states that they currently have this compatibility on 39 different smartphones and tablets - this includes the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S7, Motorola Droids, and Apple’s iPhones. If you’re looking for a device to use to supply Internet in your home or business, then you’ll want to check out Cradlepoint’s line of LTE-Advanced Cat6 routersSierra Wireless has LTE Advanced routers too.  Be on the lookout for more manufacturers to support LTE-Advanced in the near future!

iPhone Users Must Update Their Phones NOW Due to an Israeli Hack!

iPhone users listen up! Apple just rushed out a new security update update today. Why, you ask? Well, they discovered an Isreali company had been selling and exploiting security vulnerabilities to Apple products. The company, Israeli NSO Group, is so secretive about what they're doing, they've changed their name countless times just to avoid detection.

The group gained access to text messages, emails, contacts, and calls - this is according to a report by researchers at Citizen Lab out of University of Toronto and Lookout, a San Francisco mobile security company.

While we can go over all the details of what they did and perhaps why they did it, the point is to simply update your iPhone now!

A statement from Apple, as reported by Buzzfeed: “We were made aware of this vulnerability and immediately fixed it with iOS 9.3.5...We advise all of our customers to always download the latest version of iOS to protect themselves against potential security exploits.”

2 Outlet IP Switch - Google Services Firmware Update

The 2 Outlet IP Switch has built in email and Google Hangouts functionality for alert notifications and remote control. Recently, Google did a major update which changed their security standards preventing the IP Switch from being able to sign in to Google services. Users were unable to send emails from the switch or log in to Google Hangouts for remote control.

The new UIS-522B hardware was the first to get a firmware update to resolve the Google issues. Now, the UIS-322B has a long awaited firmware update which resolves the Google issues. The delay came down to an issue with the memory within the UIS-322B hardware being smaller than the changes required. After many long hours, there is a tested and working solution.

Firmware for both the UIS-522B and UIS-322B can be downloaded from the 3Gstore IP Switch Updates page

The NEW Pepwave Surf SOHO - Information

 

soho.jpg

The Pepwave Surf SOHO is a professional-grade Wi-Fi router designed for home office, small business, and power users. With support for 4G LTE/3G, cable, DSL, and other broadband connections, the Surf SOHO makes it possible to deploy fast and secure Wi-Fi hotspots anywhere. The Surf SOHO also features built-in long-range and optional external antennas, business-class VPN, cellular usage monitoring, and URL blocking, making it an ideal networking solution for a wide range of mobile and office uses.


The SOHO has been immensely popular with 3Gstore customers and industry experts alike. The long standing router to beat before the Pepwave Surf SOHO was the Cradlepoint MBR95. However, Cradlepoint has long since discontinued that model and stopped any firmware updates. The current least expensive Cradlepoint, the MBR1200B, offers load balancing vs just failover only on the Surf SOHO, but its higher cost and slower WiFi and LAN speeds make the SOHO the more popular choice for individuals and small businesses alike.


Michael Horowitz of Computer World just wrote an article about how he used the Surf SOHO to keep online via his phones hotspot when his primary ISP was offline. He writes about how having a backup connection allows his wife to be able to continue working in the middle of the night, and with little hassle to set this up. Michael also wrote in much more detail about his experiences with the SOHO on his Router Security blog. John Mayer, a well known RVer also wrote a rave review of the SOHO going over its ease of use compared to other options.

The Surf SOHO has been one of the most popular routers ever in the history of 3Gstore, and it is about to be even better. Peplink is doing a major hardware update to the SOHO adding support for 802.11n wireless AC, and gigabit ethernet ports. This means the new SOHO will be even faster for both WiFi and wired speeds. Streaming media will not suffer any bottlenecks thanks to wireless AC support. The unit is also getting a new enclosure, though the final design hasn’t been revealed at the time of this article.


3Gstore has also created a number of videos going over the various features and functions of the SOHO including WiFi as WAN, how to upgrade firmware, PepVPN, and more. Keep in mind these videos are based on the previous hardware version, but overall functionality will be the same. If the new SOHO is even half as popular as the original, this is going to be a very high demand product, so be sure to sign up at 3Gstore for notification when this is available.


The new Surf SOHO will be available first at 3Gstore, and we’ve created a signup sheet on our site to notify our customers when these are in stock.

New Cradlepoint COR IBR600B and 650B with Cat4 Modem

Cradlepoint has released an update to the popular COR IBR series of M2M and mobile routers. The new COR IBR600B-LP4 and COR IBR650B-LP4 don't replace the previous LPE modems, rather they offer some additional functionality at a lower cost of entry.

The COR IBR600/650B have embedded Cat4 cellular modems with automatic carrier selection based on the detected SIM card. Cat4 means the modems do NOT support Sprint, there is no Verizon 3G support, no Canadian carrier support, nor any GPS functionality. What Cat4 does mean is 150/50Mbps modem speeds vs 100/50Mbps on Cat3 devices.
ibr600b_dock.png
The new B models will also sport a full featured Software Development Kit (SDK). This SDK will allow for custom application development in Python, something other no other Cradlepoint allows. These new units also have Gigabit ethernet ports, support a second modem via a dual modem dock just like the current IBR1100/1150, and have a voltage tolerance of 9-33V instead of just 9-18V.

The new Cradlepoint models will be available at 3Gstore. The WiFi enabled COR IBR600B is just $549.99 , while the non WiFi COR IBR650B is only $499.99. Not sure which Cradlepoint is right for you? Contact the experts at 3Gstore and we'll find a solution for your unique needs.
