iOS 8 and WiFi as WAN Compatibility

With the release of the iPhone 6 and iOS 8, 3Gstore has been hard at work testing all of our products and ensuring there are no compatibility issues. So far we have tested: the Peplink Router Utility for Balance and Max routers, the ezOutlet app for the 1 outlet IP Switch, and mCamView for the CloudCam .

Next up on the testing list is WiFi as WAN with iOS 8. With any new or updated operating system, there is always a chance that a change, as small as it may be, could affect the way certain features work. With WiFi as WAN, you take a compatible router, and you pickup and rebroadcast the WiFi signal from another source. This can be used to extend a home network, create a secure network from a free WiFi hotspot, connect to an RV park signal from longer distances, or in our case, share our iOS 6 devices hotspot feature with wired devices and share WiFi at much longer ranges than the device can do by itself without any iOS limitations.

To test this, we have selected the Pepwave Surf SOHO and the Cradlepoint MBR1400. Each were on their latest firmware builds at the time of testing. 6.1.2 for the SOHO and 5.2.2 for the MBR1400. Our device providing WiFi to us was an iPad Air running iOS8 in hotspot mode. So, how did things go?

Both the Surf SOHO and the MBR1400 didn't have any issues connecting by WiFi as WAN to iOS 8, and speed testing the two connections were so similar that there really isn't any notable difference between the two. Any variance can easily be attributed to the nature of cellular networks and their always fluctuating speeds. If you need to boost the WiFi range of an iOS 8 device, or convert that WiFi over for ethernet only devices, WiFi as WAN is still compatible with the latest offerings from Apple.

Verizon Enables VOLTE - Voice Over LTE - Guide To Enable iPhone 6

Verizon Wireless will be rolling out VoLTE this week! As part of their new “Advanced Calling 1.0” initiative, the service is limited to the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. However, in order to take advantage of the service, you’ll have to manually enable it on the phone.

First, make sure the iPhone is activated and connected to Verizon’s LTE network. Next, go to Settings -> Cellular -> Enable LTE

  

By default, the Enable LTE option will be limited to “Data Only.” Tap on “Voice & Data” to enable VoLTE. It may take a few minutes to complete the process. Please note that some users have reported that the Advanced Calling 1.0 had to be enabled on the account BEFORE the iPhone would accept the change. To check this on your own account, you can simply log in at Verizon’s website and go to Manage My Account -> Change Features. Scroll down until you see the Advanced Calling 1.0 and HD Voice and make sure they are enabled.

Verizon expands 4G XLTE Coverage

xlte_logo.jpg


On September 18, Verizon Wireless announced that they have launched XLTE in 22 new markets, bringing double the 4G LTE bandwidth and greater peak speeds now in more than 400 markets coast to coast.

That means that 4 out of 5 Verizon Wireless 4G LTE markets, large and small, from New York to San Diego and from Chicago to Miami - and beyond - also now have Verizon Wireless XLTE.

Adding XLTE to Verizon’s 4G LTE network is like doubling the number of lanes on a freeway from 10 to 20. The extra lanes means traffic can move faster, but the speed limit hasn’t changed.

Your technology is only as good as the network it is on. The advantage of XLTE helps enable a more mobile lifestyle for customers who are continuously on the go – to watch video, access the Internet, connect to social media, and more. Below is a full list of markets that have been upgraded with XLTE support:

  • Blytheville, AR
  • Burlington, IA
  • Sterling, IL
  • Sterling, IL
  • Ft. Dodge, IA
  • Hilo, Hawaii
  • Pierre, SD
  • Jacksonville, NC
  • Joplin, MO
  • Lihue, HI
  • Manitowoc, WI
  • Centralia, IL
  • Ocala, FL
  • Pine Bluff, AR
  • Pittsburg-Parsons, KS
  • Ponca City, OK
  • Port Angeles, WA
  • Sedalia, MO
  • Somerset, KY
  • Willmar-Marshall, MN

Intel XMM7262 Certified on China Mobile

Intel continues to take steps to become a big player in the mobile broadband market by pushing XMM7262 LTE modem.

In May, an Intel blog post stated an ambitious goal for the company’s second half of the year: to “be #2 in LTE modem volume by the end of 2014.” While this goal may seem far fetched for most, Intel is one of the few companies with the means of following through, even without a vast history in mobile broadband technology. Intel initially entered the mobile broadband industry back in 2010, when it acquired Infineon.

Today, Aicha Evans, General Manager of the Platform Engineering Group at Intel, followed up on the topic. Her blog post announced that Intel’s latest LTE modem has been officially certified by China’s largest operator, China Mobile. If Intel’s goal can be measured by pure numbers, then they are likely off to a great start. In 2013, China Mobile had more subscribers than any other mobile telecommunications company in the world, about 760 million .

It is also clear that Intel is aiming for a modem that will appeal to as many people and manufacturers as possible. Below is the latest information on the XMM7262 features:

  • Up to 23 LTE bands on a single SKU for worldwide coverage and roaming
  • Multimode design provides seamless connectivity to 2G, 3G and 4G LTE networks
  • Powerful and flexible RF architecture to enable roaming solutions for a world phone market impact

The number of LTE bands and networks that will be accessible through the XMM7262 target the widespread user base that will be necessary to come close to Qualcomm in terms of LTE modem volume. Intel may hope to woo Apple away from Qualcomm , in an attempt to establish a relationship similar to that which lands Intel processors in all Mac computers. Ironically, Apple was using Infineon hardware with early models of the iPhone, until Infineon was acquired by Intel.

This move as a whole makes sense in combination with some of Intel’s other latest projects, such as the tiny XMM6255 3G modem . If you would like to sample Intel’s XMM726x modems, the XMM7260 can be found in the recently released Samsung Galaxy Alpha.

IP Switch 1 Outlet Compatible with iOS 8

Our team at 3Gstore tries to keep up with all updates relevant to our industry, whether they are directly related to our products or not. In the case of the new iOS 8 update released by Apple today, and one of our popular items, the 1 Outlet Remote Power IP Switch, we needed to confirm the ezOutlet application would still operate. After all, not only do we rely on it ourselves, but several of our customers as well.

The Remote Power IP Switch allows users a way to remotely power cycle devices such as routers, cameras, and web servers. The ezOutlet app, provides the user a way to not only configure the IP Switch, but also manually power the outlet on or off, reset the outlet, and upgrade firmware for the IP Switch. Without this, users who are relying on an IP Switch that is connected with a privately assigned WAN IP address on their network, are limited to local access only. Of course, this defeats the main purpose of the device!

Go ahead and update if you find necessary, ezOutlet will still work! And if you don’t already have one, check out the Remote Power IP Switch today and see if it may help you! 

Not sure which IP Switch model may be right for you? Reference our comparison between the 2-Outlet and 1-Outlet models!
