FMC router assists weak cellular signal strength

Saturday, January 13, 2007

Have you ever experienced talking on your cell phone inside room or your house, and then suddenly you couldn’t hear your friend’s voice or he/she might say to you “Hello, you still there?” Then you realized that there was very low signal that expected you to find a ‘good spot’ which was perhaps your backyard.

Actiontec Electronics solved the problem, the company announced the wireless FMC (Fixed Mobile Convergence) router. A device that supports switching calls from cellular network into Wi-Fi based connection or the other way around when your cell’s signal drops to certain level, even while you are on the phone (red. great features!). It does help people who have hybrid mobile/Wi-Fi phones to make or receive calls using the Wi-Fi network inside the house, and it will switch back to cellular network when you are out of the router’s range.

Security will be the first thing to prioritize, the routers use robust firewall, 64/128-bit WEP, WPA and WPA2 encryption which guarantee there will be no spy who can hear your ‘secret conversation’.

Yet, another great feature is the ability to adapt with other device. If it is plugged with another router, it acts as a switch. If it connects with DSL modem, it automatically detects the current used settings and login info. This is very great feature to free your self from the ‘pain in the a**’ of installing and setup new device.

This supporting wireless device will be available for sale $180,00 at Actiontec Online Store in the second quarter of this year.
