4G can be defined as fourth-generation wireless that offers faster data speed as compared to the third generation (3G). MWR211, a mobile wireless router developed by ZyXEL Communications Inc., a provider of secure broadband networking, Internet connectivity and routing products, has received 4G connectivity support.

This latest addition has made Battery-Powered MWR211  compatible with leading 4G Service Providers. According to a press release, the palm-sized, carrier-agnostic router now enables users to connect to Clearwire WiMAX networks, in addition to 3G service providers and 4G Sprint and Verizon (News - Alert) networks. It offers different ways for users to connect any Wi-Fi capable device to the Internet.

The MWR211 offers more connectivity choices for a superior wireless experience at no additional cost.

"We're seeing growing consumer demand for 4G-capabile routers and have quickly engineered a series of upgrades for our popular MWR211 routers to ensure optimal wireless user experience," said Steven Joe (News - Alert), executive vice president of channel business for North America at ZyXEL. "These free upgrades continuously improve our MWR211, matching its functionality to the changing needs of our existing and future customers."

ZyXEL's mobile wireless router allows wired Internet access and 3G / 4G data access through the use of a USB adapter. The MWR211 can operate using AC power or its rechargeable battery for business travelers and other on-the-go users. Ideal for road warriors, vacationers, RVs or kiosk applications, the MWR211 can work with any cellular provider's data service.

The MWR211 can be purchased from ZyXEL authorized e-commerce retailers with an MSRP remaining at $115.
