Why every business needs to Konnect Voice calling
Imagine a 4G LTE Wi-Fi device that will work in over 100 countries, all without network roaming fees or buying a local SIM… and it allows voice calling
B usiness or frequent travellers will be familiar with the scenario. You land in a new country and want to connect. If you’re lucky, you can get online with your phone, but even then it may not support the local 4G or LTE bands – so you’ll be restricted to 2.5G or 3G speeds – and you probably can’t tether your laptop.
There are pocket Wi-Fi devices that solve some of the problems in some of the countries, but often they’re tied to specific mobile operators with fearsome charges if you download too much data from the wrong carrier.
These are just some of the reasons why Nuu Mobile created the Konnect i1. Just released, here are the key reasons businesses and frequent travellers will be interested – and two exclusive offers for PC Pro readers.
Unlimited daily data
There’s no limit on how much data you can download per day: grab as much as you need. The sole caveat is the daily fair usage policy on the 4G LTE data component. But you only pay for the days you need.
Or pay for data per gigabyte
Feel more comfortable with buying data by the gigabyte? No problem, that’s also an option.
No SIM cards You don’t need to insert a single SIM card into the Konnect i1. Switch it on when you arrive and it will detect which country you’re in, then automatically connect using its hybrid technology, either virtual SIM or multi-identity eSIM ( see above).
Too many people trying to connect means a standard pocket Wi-Fi device has to reduce the speed of its service or reject people altogether. Not the Konnect i1.
We don’t merely mean that all data is encrypted from device to server, which it is, or that you can avoid public networks altogether: Nuu Mobile can also incorporate a VPN setup for corporate or enterprise customers, authorised device access, or separate channels for personal and corporate traffic, meaning a connection over the Konnect i1 can always be trusted.
The Konnect i1’s 3,600mAh battery is designed to run and last a full working day with multiple devices, meaning you don’t need to place any extra burden on your phone (as you would if you were using it as a mobile hotspot).
Fast, global coverage
Even though you may get roaming included with your current phone network provider, you won’t access the fastest speeds in all countries unless you have the right network bands on your phone. That’s not a problem with the Konnect i1. Plus, Nuu Mobile partners with the fastest and most reliable 4G LTE operators in each region. Most pocket Wi-Fi devices are all about the data: with the Konnect you can make calls with Wi-Fi calling, providing your phone and network plan supports this. All without spending another penny.
Multiple device connections
You can connect up to five devices to the Konnect i1, perfect if you’re at an event with your team, or need to keep the kids distracted with Netflix streaming on another device while you work.
Easy to manage
Individual users can use the app to manage the device and make data package purchases, while also monitoring the device status from the app dashboard.
Corporate level management
Manage multiple devices? An online control panel lets you set daily download limits and purchase wholesale data to share across devices. Plus, use white/blacklists to screen unwanted traffic, or restrict access to certain MAC addresses.
Share the joy
Businesses want a device they can share between travelling staff and that’s so easy to use no support is necessary. With the Konnect i1, it’s a matter of switching it on and keeping it charged.
Set your country IP address
Need your laptop to believe it’s in the UK? Or in the US? Then use the accompanying Android or iOS app to choose an IP address, wherever you need it to be.
The price is right
The Konnect costs £150. After that you simply buy pre-pay packages as and when you need data on your travels. So, no contracts and no activation fees – a true pay-as-you-go or corporate solution.
