Novatel Wireless to Showcase MiFi Intelligent Mobile Hotspot SMB and Consumer Applications at Mobile World Congress App Planet

BARCELONA, Spain, Feb 14, 2010 (PR Newswire Europe via COMTEX News Network) -- MiFi Landing Page, Auto VPN, NovaDrive and MiFi Photosharing Applications to be Showcased at App Planet

Mobile World Congress (AV-52 and 7A45) -- Novatel Wireless, Inc. (Nasdaq: NVTL), a leading provider of wireless broadband access solutions, today announced that it will be showcasing innovative applications developed for the MiFi(TM) Intelligent Mobile Hotspot platform at Mobile World Congress 2010 in Barcelona, Spain at App Planet in Hall 7, Booth 7A45 from February 15-18.

The Novatel Wireless exclusive MiFi software platform includes features and functionality that transform the MiFi from a connectivity device to a full-scale Intelligent Mobile Hotspot. The MiFi software platform allows any WiFi-enabled device to take advantage of its applications, and its onboard Web server enables the MiFi to connect to remote data locations, retrieve data and present it to the user either online or offline. The platform architecture is designed to ensure that the operator's network is protected, while maintaining the ability for new applications and services to be field-deployed to generate additional ARPU.

Novatel Wireless will be demonstrating applications including:

- AutoVPN: an always-available, secure service-delivery platform for SMB
      and enterprise secure remote access. While providing another level of
      security for mobile broadband users, MiFi AutoVPN simplifies VPN
      configuration and maintenance and is compatible with leading VPN server
      gateways.
    - NovaDrive: an application that allows users to store and access files
      from local storage, removable storage, or cloud storage from multiple
      locations on any device that supports a browser and Wi-Fi connection.
      Security and location features are also supported for the mobile users
      that extend performance beyond storage and retrieval to the cloud.
    - MiFi PhotoSharing Application with Eye-Fi: a MiFi application that
      enables users to easily and instantly upload photos and video from
      wherever they are.

"The MiFi software platform provides a universe of potential for new applications across multiple markets. With the unprecedented MiFi Landing Page, on-board Linux-based application processing support, an on-board Web server and media storage capabilities, the MiFi software platform provides a variety of exciting and innovative opportunities for consumer and SMB application development," said Rob Hadley, CMO, Novatel Wireless. "The platform provides new revenue opportunities for operators and enables markets and usage patterns that have never before existed."

Novatel Wireless will be in the Avenue Pavilion, AV-52 and in the App Planet Pavilion, 7A45 from Feb. 15-18, 2010.
