CradlePoint Technology, Boise, Idaho, has announced that one of their best-selling products, the PHS300 Personal Wi-Fi Hotspot, has been certified with the Verizon Wireless UM175 USB modem for use on the Verizon Wireless network, the most reliable wireless voice and data network in the United States.

CradlePoint, the global leader in 3G/4G network solutions, submitted its PHS300 for certification through Verizon Wireless' open development program. Verizon Wireless customers using CradlePoint's PHS300 can now turn the Evolution-Data Optimized (EV-DO) wireless broadband network into their personal Wi-Fi hotspot where they can connect and use their Wi-Fi-enabled devices.

"We are very excited to add the PHS300 to the family of certified products through Verizon Wireless' open development program", said Jack Alton, CradlePoint's vice president of sales -- North America. "The PHS300 is a unique battery-powered, routing device that unlocks new markets and new capabilities when paired with the reliability of the Verizon Wireless network."

Simply plug a Verizon Wireless UM175 USB Modem into the PHS300 and it automatically converts the wireless broadband network signal to a Wi-Fi signal. The PHS300 allows Verizon Wireless customers to share their connection over a secure Wi-Fi network with as many as 16 people or Wi-Fi enabled devices. "With no software to install on a PC or phone, the PHS300 is an easy way to securely access the Internet with Wi-Fi devices, virtually anywhere," said Alton.

"Products such as CradlePoint's PHS300 are a proof point as to why the Verizon Wireless open development program was created," said Anthony A. Lewis, vice president of open development at Verizon Wireless. "Our open development program is driven by the company's desire to encourage innovation, give customers new wireless choices, and quickly address opportunities to expand the wireless market."

CradlePoint's key innovation is its patent-pending WiPipe(TM) technology, which makes Wi-Fi access portable, secure, and easy to use. With the PHS300, devices such as Smartphones, PCs, PDAs, cameras, music players, gaming platforms, and even printers can all benefit from network access whenever and wherever customers want to set up a network, on the road, in the office, and at home.

The PHS300 is available today from retailers across the U.S. and Canada or online and has an MSRP of $179.99US.
