NetComm makes wireless Burst

NetComm has scored the first product development and marketing deal with Personal Broadband Australia, owners of the iBurst wireless broadband service.

The deal sees iBurst included in two new NetComm offerrings, the NetComm mobile hotspot and mobile IP surveillance.

The hotspot creates a wireless LAN using NetComm's HotSpot router and iBurst's desk bridge. The surveillance solution uses a NetComm camera with iBurst connectivity to provide real-time video over the Internet.

The iBurst service uses an antenna-based access card or bridge that slots into a computer to provide wireless download speed of 1Mbps (maximum). This differs to competing services that require users to carry a wireless modem for access.

Both the NetComm-branded products launched last week, and are available via NetComm distributors.

NetComm will also gain access to iBurst's subscriber base through direct marketing to promote additional hardware.

"This deal will increase both companies' ability to deliver leading-edge wireless solutions, while narrowing lead times between product development and market availability," NetComm managing director, David Stewart, said.

PBA chief technology officer, Jonathan Withers, said the arrangment was the ISP's first of this kind.

Although not an exclusive arrangement, NetComm and PBA would continue to work on future offerings that integrated products and services, a spokesperson said.

NetComm was currently discussing a similar deal with Unwired, according to the spokesperson.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
