As a subscriber unit, the WRG connects to the wireless broadband network via a slot-in PC-card modem (PCMCIA) and provides simultaneous internet access to many users through WiFi/LAN connectivity. Additional features such as telephony allow subscribers to use their existing analog telephones to get the best out of next generation SIP telephony.

With the assistance of the DOVADO Gateway Manager (DGM), all of the DOVADO gateways shall be managed by UK Broadband in order to simplify and shorten the installation process for the subscribers.

“We are very delighted to see the DOVADO WRG selected by UK Broadband for the delivery of data and voice services within their wireless broadband network. Combined with the ability to remotely manage the subscriber units, UK Broadband will easily be able to activate or modify services upon subscriber request.” said Erik Arthur, CEO, DOVADO.

“UK Broadband Limited is pleased to be working with DOVADO on this project. The WRG will allow us to improve our customer service proposition by offering a single box solution for voice and data services, combined with a WiFi capability giving a genuine wireless experience in the home, delivered over our wireless broadband network.” said Keith Hawkins, COO, UK Broadband.
