Compact and Portable

Our most portable WiFi router, the PHS300 comes standard with a Li Ion battery providing hours of access when no power outlets are in sight. At just under 3” x 5” it's a perfect solution for those on the go. Take the PHS300 everywhere you need Internet access.

Secure and Reliable

This high-performance router platform, powered by WiPipe™ technology, supports multiple and concurrent VPN pass-through sessions, plus encryption modes including WEP, WPA and WPA2.  Now you can confidently access the Internet and share your connection with friends, family or colleagues on the road, in the office and at home.

The PHS300 now supports Verizon's high-speed 4G LTE service, but with limited speeds of 6MB up/down due to hardware limitations.
