Hobnob Introduces Virtual Network Adapter [Travel & Leisure Close - Up]
(Travel & Leisure Close - Up Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Hobnob, a company focusing on providing levels of mobile network connectivity, announced that users can experience the benefits of true cloud-based networking by downloading the Hobnob Virtual Network Adapter (VNA) from the company's online store and installing it on their devices.
According to a release, the VNA combines WiFi and 4G to provide a single, seamless connection to Hobnob's global cloud of ultra-fast servers, delivering new levels of performance and reliability that leverage the advantages of the lowest-cost WiFi networks available.
"When it comes to mobile networking, hardware is dead," said Aron Hall, founder and CEO of Hobnob. "No longer do users have to bolt a 'heavy metal' network appliance to their vehicle to get the most reliable connectivity. It's all about cloud-based software now, which people can download from our web site and install directly on the mobile device of their choice."
"We foresaw the potential of cloud networking years ago and have worked diligently to create the first pure software offering in the mobile network cloud," said Hall. "This paves the way for new levels of network performance and reliability for people working in professions where every second literally matters, from firefighters to paramedics, police officers to other first responders. It also benefits IT/datacenter emergency response staff and mobile c-level execs who can't afford dropped VOIP calls, video drops or VPN disconnects."
Hobnob said the new virtual network adapter enables Hobnob to suit individual needs. For example, users can combine AT&T 4G built in to their Toughpad with a Verizon JetPack on board their vehicle and WiFi at their fire stations. Medical professionals can add the WiFi networks at their local hospitals and seamlessly roam from ambulance to the ER network and back without dropping their connection. Hobnob users can also combine a portable Verizon hotspot with the built-in AT&T 4G on their Windows tablets, preventing the dropping of mission-critical Skype calls or live video meetings while on the road.
