DUBAI, UAE, June 28, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- What do mobile workers need most importantly? To answer this question, they need easy access to true mobile broadband anytime, anywhere.

Mobile Working Is Getting More Popular

Today's businesses are increasingly working outside the office. According to a forecast by analyst firm IDC, there will be more than a billion mobile workers worldwide by the end of the year, and by 2013, more than a third of the world's population will have a mobile job. That's 1.2 billion people!

If you are one of the mobile workers, or your business takes you out and about, you need to know about this great tool that allows you to easily keep connected to the Internet, check your emails and maintain your productivity.

Mobility Increases Productivity

Being out of the office doesn't mean you have to risk leaving your business behind, because you are out of touch. For the mobile workforce, like mobile sales teams, consultant groups, business travelers or even those in search of Wi-Fi hot spots while on the go, the D-Link's DIR-457U 3.75G HSUPA Pocket Router may be just what users have been waiting for.

The pocket-sized device acts as either a Wi-Fi router or 3.75G modem with the flip of a switch. Since the device seamlessly switches between 3G and Wi-Fi, you don't need to hunt for a Wi-Fi hotspot when you are outside - but you can always stay connected. While traveling somewhere out of a Wi-Fi connection or in a moving vehicle, the DIR-457U's 3G function allows you to stay online with high-speed connectivity. With mobile broadband access, you can work on your own schedule, wherever and whenever you want. You don't have to rush to the office to send your quotation or search for a file. Instead, you can fire off emails on a smart phone, receive and send quotes on the go, eliminate unproductive time when travelling by train and even do your personal banking.

Simultaneous, Multiple Internet Connection and Data Sharing

The DIR-457U allows for simultaneous, multiple Internet connections. Simply insert the UMTS/HSUPA SIM card and up to 16 users and clients, like smart phones or notebooks can share the 3.75G Internet connection through a secure 802.11g wireless network. Thus, a group of mobile co-workers doesn't need to waste time to wait for the Internet connection nor do they need to pay extra Internet bills while out of the office.

In addition to that, you could download music from iTunes onto the iPod Touch while you are checking emails on a laptop.

The DIR-457U can even act as a NAS (Network Attached Storage) to enable a mobile group to share data efficiently. There is a built-in microSD card slot so you can use a memory card of up to 32GB to conveniently share files between Wi-Fi enabled devices.

Get Real Mobility

The slim, pocket-sized device is equipped with a built-in 3G SIM card and a rechargeable battery that's neater and easier to use. The rechargeable battery-powered router allows for true mobility without the cumbersome cable. Of course, if you wish so, you could also choose to power it by connecting to the PC USB port or normal electricity. The three types of power options offer mobile workers plenty of flexibility. It's small enough to fit in your pocket, so Internet can go wherever you go.

Like other 3.5G devices, the DIR-457U gets Internet access through the 3G network of a mobile operator. The difference between common 3.5G devices and the DIR-457U is that the DIR-457U is compatible with a wide range of mobile service networks, so you are not bound to a specific carrier. This feature gives business travelers the real freedom of mobility while travelling to different countries.

With D-Link's mobility solution, you can focus on taking care of your business instead of leaving your business behind.
