ByteSpeed W3 Portal
The ByteSpeed W3 Portal is a ruggedized battery-powered mobile router that was a popular option during the first ECF window. Its portability gave Bus Wifi access to school districts that don’t own their buses. Furthermore, the W3 Portal lets students stay connected off the bus as well on field trips, outdoor classes, sporting events, at-home internet for multiple connections, and more.
This solution features a rugged waterproof and dustproof IP67-rated carrying case that stands up to rough outdoor conditions and extreme temperatures. It comes with 10-14 hours of battery life, an inbuilt powerful antenna, and is compatible with Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile LTE & CBRS bands. Learn more and request a quote here.
