By simply plugging in a phone or other office devices into the Ethernet ports, the user has immediate access to both data and voice services including caller ID, call forwarding, call waiting, call holding and three-way calling.
Upgradeable to Voice over LTE (VoLTE) - Gives mobile broadband operators time-to-market advantage for cost savings and advance service offerings.MiFi Home™ is VoLTE-capable and is easily upgraded over-the-air with VoLTE services upon carrier availability. By using an all-IP packet-based service for voice and data, VoLTE not only provides significant cost savings, it will allow operators to recover less efficient circuit switch 2G channels for additional data capacity. Enabling simultaneous voice and data traffic on LTE in a unified format, VoLTE provides operators with an end-to-end IP connection between their mobile equipment and their core network. VoLTE also enables new services such as video calling, multi-device, single number and multimedia sharing services across mobile broadband devices.
