For even more high-speed entertainment on the road – the Wi4U pro from lesswire


Berlin, 01/2015. Whether for infotainment or entertainment, having the best media at your fingertips and a fast, permanent internet connection have become the norm in recent years – at least when stationary. To allow these factors to assert themselves on Europe’s roads in future, the Berlin company lesswire, a member of the international Prettl group, has launched the Wi4U pro – a new LTE Wi-Fi router with built-in media server for high-speed internet and entertainment in vehicles.

Slender in design and equipped with the latest LTE technology, the Wi4U pro succeeds the successful mobile Wi2U car hotspot and offers the perfect solution for coach companies, local public transport, commercial vehicle operators and retrofitters of private vehicles. This is because the Wi4U pro, compliant with the E1 standard for vehicle usage, offers, in addition to reliability and robustness, flexibility allowing it to be adapted to users’ needs and further enhanced with software updates.

Thanks to the Wi4U pro with its high-speed LTE data transfer rates of up to 100 Mbit/s even more passengers will in future be able to rely on a high-speed internet connection while on the move. One single Wi4U pro allows more than 50 end devices to work online, to network or entertain. The latter is aided by the router’s integrated media server which, thanks to UPnP (Universal Plug and Play), makes films, music and online newspapers easily accessible to end devices such as smartphones and tablets. As a result, all operators can provide media services aimed at specific target groups thus offering the added value that customers in future will be calling for.

Other uses are also offered by the integrated GPS receiver. Because unlike the data rates the situation on the roads is not always ‘high speed’. Thanks to the integrated fleet management function, vehicles fitted with the Wi4U pro can be located allowing delays to the schedule to be recognized and communicated in plenty of time.

The Wi4U pro therefore offers communication advantages on many levels. So get connected with lesswire.
