Buzz Wireless introduces Hubba X4 Global
Buzz Wireless is one of the leading providers of 3G and 4G mobile communications platforms for the leisure and commercial marine markets.
In a perfect world all countries would deploy a global standard protocol for cellular data, but in reality many have their own allocated frequency bands and system variants. Nowhere is this more evident than the US and Canada, where systems are often incompatible with European and Asian counterparts. This has meant that for the shipping industry it has, since now, been difficult to come up with a global solution in one box.
Step forward the Hubba X4 Global, the first multiband, multi-protocol, dual SIM, LTE data router designed for the maritime sector. Ideal for operators regularly crossing borders, it also inter-operates with existing VSAT systems to switch seamlessly when out of range of shore based networks.
The new router provides a cost-effective solution to help vessels stay connected across multiple networks up to 20 miles offshore in range of shore based mobile networks.
For vessels travelling further offshore, the Hubba X4 Global has an automatic switch over which automatically selects the vessel’s VSAT system when out of mobile range. As soon as a new mobile network is detected the Hubba will activate automatically, switching from VSAT to Hubba.
It will allow a maximum downlink speed of 300 Mbps and a maximum uplink speed of 50 Mbps.
Hubba X4 Global is the first multiband, multi-protocol, dual SIM, LTE data router specifically designed for the maritime sector. It is ideal for commercial operators and long-distance cruising across multiple borders.
