With the launch of the Inseego 5G MiFi M1000, Verizon debuted its first 5G hotspot and fifth 5G-enabled device.
The Inseego MiFi provides large bandwidth and fast download speeds when connected to Verizon’s 5G Ultra Wideband network, through which Verizon customers can access apps that handle mobile workforce, industrial IoT, 4K/8K video streaming, virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR) and more.
The Inseego MiFi is our first business-ready 5G device, combining bandwidth and speed customers expect from 5G, with enterprise-grade security businesses require - Tami Erwin, executive vice president and group CEO, Verizon Business
The Inseego MiFi M1000 will make use of Verizon’s 5G Ultra Wideband network to provide high data speeds which can help set up mobile command centres and contribute to ease of access of public safety applications like object detection and geospatial visualization.
Through this network, real-time interaction through VR can be enabled between healthcare providers and patients in order to carry out remote consultations or physical therapy sessions.
It also supports real-time interaction between humans and robots and other cloud-based artificial intelligence with near real-time reaction speed.
We’re thrilled to introduce Verizon’s first commercial 5G mobile hotspot engineered specifically for 5G data connectivity in partnership with Verizon.
