Kyocera KR2 Mobile Router



Kyocera Wireless today announced the KR2 Mobile Router, a followon to their ground breaking KR1 Mobile Router (now $199) which integrates a WiFi hotspot with cellular EVDO backhaul in one small box.

The KR2 Mobile Router supports PCMCIA, ExpressCard and USB devices for wireless connectivity and features 802.11n (Draft 2.0) for longer-range, faster Wi-Fi. The new KR2 can also act as a conventional router, plugging into cable or DSL modems to provide fail-over capability to an EV-DO connection during network interruptions.

The KR2 takes a single CDMA2000 1xEV-DO Rel. 0 or Rev. A backhaul connection and creates a mobile 802.11b/g/n WiFi hot spot.

Kyocera claims the KR2 Mobile Router can be installed in minutes virtually anywhere and provides high-speed Internet and data access for multiple users. It supports Wi-Fi Protected Setup Mode via a dedicated button, a VPN-L2TP and enhanced encryption for network security.

It should be available sometime in early 2008. No price yet.
