Verizon has partnered with network hardware company Inseego on a new mobile hotspot aimed at helping remote workers, among others.

The Inseego MiFi M2100 5G UW mobile hotspot launched on Wednesday and provides users with a “robust 5G connection” that taps into Verizon’s 5G Ultra Wideband and 4G LTE networks. While 5G is currently only supported in select regions, Verizon’s nationwide 5G network will go live later in the year.

“From data-hungry consumers to remote workers to cutting-edge enterprise applications,” Verizon explained in an official release. “The MiFi M2100 combines lightning-fast, ultra-low lag performance with secure 5G, including Verizon’s upcoming 5G Nationwide network, and 4G LTE connectivity for a world of exciting new applications in healthcare, emergency response, entertainment and other areas…”

The M2100 also supports the next-gen Wi-Fi 6 wireless Internet standard, offering speeds four-times as fast as Wi-Fi 5, the standard most consumers are likely to be familiar with. The device can connect to 30 devices, the release claims, with the options to connect directly via USB-C cable.

Along with the many features boasted about in the official release, the company also touts the various uses the M2100 can offer to consumers working towards figuring out their new normal.

“Work-from-home employees, travelers, kiosks and other business needs,” the release explains. “Unlike public-Wi-Fi networks or overcrowded home networks, a MiFi hotspot provides a separate, secure connection for business travelers, remote workers, and other needs.”

The device is also set to include strong security measures, which Verizon and Inseego claim will make it ideal for students engaged in distance learning, as well as government and bank employees that need to conduct business with sensitive information.

The MiFi M2100 can be purchased now from Verizon’s website for $399.99, or for $16.66 a month for 24 months with a Verizon device payment plan.
