Trakdot from 3Gstore Now Includes TWO Years of Service ($39.98 Value) - Limited Time Only!

trakdot luggage tracker

In the US, an average of 1 in 150 people have their checked baggage misdirected or left behind each year. A constant thorn in the side of air travelers is the chance that by the time they arrive at their final destination, their luggage may be somewhere else entirely with nobody to tell you exactly where it is or when it got there. The only option is to report your baggage lost and wait for the airline to track it down, unless you have the Trakdot Luggage Tracker. Trakdot works like this: simply place the Trakdot into whatever luggage you want to track, and upon landing you’ll receive a text message stating the location of your checked bag. Trakdot knows the longitude and latitude of every airport, so instead of getting a cryptic location of GPS coordinates, you get a personalized message with the name of the airport, e.g. “Mike’s Luggage landed at Chicago O'hare,” and you can sync your Trakdot with up to 6 phones if you want to notify multiple people. You'll immediately know that your luggage has arrived safely, or, if not, at least you'll be able to alert the airline and track it down faster!

For a limited time, Trakdots purchased from 3Gstore are on sale for $69.99 AND include TWO years of service, a $39.98 value (thereafter, service is $19.99/year). Free standard shipping is also included (continental US only)!

Peplink InControl 2 Required Firewall Updates


Peplinks InControl 2 is an online, cloud based, management utility for Peplink routers and access points. InControl lets individual users or IT departments easily manage their Peplink deployments from a single user interface. InControl lets users push firmware and configuration updates, update access points, manage and track bandwidth across multiple sites, and perform fleet management on GPS enable devices.

Today Peplink has announced their InControl platform will be expanding with a new range of IP addresses. These IP's are how Peplink routers and access points can talk to InControl for updates and remote management. If you are using a Peplink as a standalone router with no firewall, there is nothing you have to do. However, if you are using your Peplink with an active firewall or behind another firewall, you must allow the following IP addresses and ports through.

Existing server IP addresses:

Additional server IP addresses:

Outgoing ports:
UDP port 5246 and
TCP port 443

For more information on InControl 2, check out the video introduction below. To see how Peplink can help your home or business run more efficiently, visit or contact the experts at 3Gstore. To view all Peplink/Pepwave hardware, click here!

Cradlepoint Firmware 5.3 - Redesign and Policy Changes

As EVDOinfo previously reported, Cradlepoint has gone through a few major overhauls lately. First, a new company logo and color scheme was revealed, for a more modern look. Second, new firmware policy changes were announced. While a simple logo redesign was welcome, the firmware policy was a surprise for everybody.

In summary, all customers will have access to FW 5.2.x, but access to FW 5.3, (Dec 2, 2014 release) and beyond, will require Enterprise Cloud Manager or CradleCare Support. This means when new firmware is released for Cradlepoint hardware, you must have ECM or CradleCare to access it. New firmware brings a variety of new features and support, with 5.3 bringing some sweeping changes to the way the newer 'LPE' modems work. With firmware 5.3 LPE modems that were previously locked to a specific carrier, Verizon or AT&T etc, can now be reflashed to work on other networks! Those who purchased these models will be happy to have the flexibility to change carriers thanks to the embedded Gobi radio, but less welcoming is the mandatory pay wall to access the download.

Along with the new 5.3 firmware, Cradlepoint has also done a redesign to the routers user interface. Gone are the reds and whites of the previous routers and company logo, and in are the darker blues and new logo. Below is an MBR1400 on 5.3.


Below is an IBR600 running 5.2.4 by comparison.

 Speed Benchmark Increase for AT&T, Verizon and More


People living in rural areas have long been left in the dust when it comes to the improvement and expansion of cellular technology. However, today the FCC made strides towards improving the overall cellular internet experience for remote consumers. As of December 11, 2014 the FCC has fundamentally altered the speed requirements of Mobile Broadband carriers for providers funded by government subsidies, including AT&T and Verizon. The speed requirement has been increased from the 4Mbps download and 1Mbps upload benchmark set in 2011, up to 10Mbps download and 1Mbps upload.

This is certainly a significant improvement, and may seem too good to be true for many mobile broadband customers. FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler stated “When 60 percent of the Internet’s prime time is video, and it takes 4 or 5Mbps to deliver a video, a 4Mbps connection isn’t exactly what’s necessary in the 21st century.” On paper, this appears to be exactly what mobile broadband users are looking for.

However, the carriers have been opposing this change for months. Back in September, AT&T stated that “Consumer behavior strongly reinforces the conclusion that a 10Mbps service exceeds what many Americans need today.” The carriers are also unhappy because the increase in required speed is disproportionate to the increase of the FCC funding window for carriers, which under the new agreement has only been increased from 5 to 6 years time.

Simple WiFi as WAN Setup with the Pepwave Surf SOHO

WiFi as WAN (WAW) means that a router or bridge can pick up a WiFi signal from an external source (for example, campground WiFi at an RV park, free WiFi at McDonald's, or even the hotspot feature from a smartphone like the iPhone or Android Phone) and create a new secure, private network from it. In other words, a router or bridge is using the external WiFi network as the internet source instead of utilizing a wired connection like cable or DSL or a cellular connection like a 3G or 4G USB modem.

The Pepwave Surf SOHO is no slouch when it comes to making WiFi as WAN connections. With its powerful built in WiFi antennas, the average range of this router is about 200 feet indoors. Using its optional external WiFi antennas, you can effectively double that range. For an RVer who is too far from the main network at a campground, the SOHO can help you pick up that signal from farther away, and then create a secure private network for all of your devices. A home owner may need a way to extend an existing wireless signal into a basement where the signal doesn't currently reach. Get online with a cellular hotspot but its range is far too small? WiFi as WAN will let you repeat that signal over much greater distances.

The video below walks though just how easy the setup of a WiFi WAN connection can be when using a router like the Surf SOHO.

Sierra Wireless: Valuable M2M Solutions for Every Business


With a lot of router manufacturers changing their firmware and support policies recently, customers looking for an embedded solution should seriously weigh their options. If you’re trying to find a reliable solution to your application needs without breaking the bank, we suggest checking out our products from Sierra Wireless (see comparison chart below).

Some router manufacturers are starting to charge their customers to get firmware updates for their routers. Depending on the manufacturer, it may not matter whether you’re a new customer or someone who’s had their router for several months. They may also charge you for technical support, should you need it.

Sierra Wireless however, does not charge anything for firmware upgrades or technical support. As of right now, any user, at any point in time may upgrade their router’s firmware AND have unlimited technical support from the manufacturer (that is IF there's something our support team cannot resolve). Plus, rather than a standard 1 year warranty that you get with most products, Sierra provides a 3 year warranty on their LS300 and ES440 routers. The GX440 routers include a 5 year standard warranty. What about a cloud service to manage my routers? Don’t sweat it, Sierra offers their AirVantage Management Service (AVMS) for an affordable $12 per year.

With embedded routers starting at $500 and up, it’s important to consider all the possible costs involved. Total costs can rise quite quickly depending on your needs. Plus, not all embedded routers are alike. The Sierra Wireless products off additional features such as serial connectivity for out of band management (e.g. for controllers, firewalls, etc), which provide an additional way to communicate and manage the routers.

So, if you’re searching for the most cost effective embedded solution, check out our Sierra Wireless products today!
