Broadband router using 4 W-Sims unveiled

At the recent Wireless Japan 2006 event, PHS operator Willcom had on display a demo product boasting the most original use of its W-Sim technology yet – a broadband router.

As a W-Sim module has a maximum transfer speed of only 128kbps, the router, provisionally named “BB Router Jacket”, ingeniously provides slots for 4 W-Sim modules which can work in unison to deliver a connection speed of up to 512kbps. The router offers both wireless and wired connections.

The device could be potentially very useful in situations where a temporary high-speed data connection is required, for example when exhibiting at events where data connections are charged at a premium.
