September 23rd, 2019 – Meridian, Idaho – WiFiRanger, the leader in Innovative RV connectivity & control solutions, today announced the availability of multiple roof-top and internal connectivity solutions, filling out their Vehicle Connectivity Integration System VCIS™ strategy with options for all RV markets and vehicle types.

“We’ve heard our OE and aftermarket customers tell us that one size does not fit all styles of RV’s and customers. This new offering extends our solution set, allowing an upgradeable platform spanning from value packed to extreme connectivity.”

Kelly Hogan
CEO & Visionary, WiFiRanger

The new offering includes 3 high performance roof-top platforms dubbed Teton, Denali, and Everest:
 
The value packed Teton system includes high performance WiFi boosting, with a drop in LTE modem option, positioned at an industry disruptive price point.

Denali extends the outdoor WiFi power capabilities further with 5X the power of competing systems for better range and throughput, built in Cat 4 rooftop Extended range LTE modem with integrated GPS.

The Everest platform is the most capable connectivity solution ever debuted to the industry. Offering outdoor dual chain, 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz high power WiFi, an integrated Cat 6 multi carrier LTE modem, a second slot for an additional LTE modem, USB 3.0 connection for up to Cat 20 LTE & 5G futures, and up to 64GB storage of telemetry data.

All offerings are delivered in the flexible Converge enclosure, and offer simple “tray swap” upgrades allowing owners to improve their systems simply and effectively with no changes to the enclosure. Each system ships with the TetherPoint™ wire harness which facilitates locating an LTE unit conveniently within a vast array of floor plans and easy addition of indoor TetherPoint™ routers to extend capabilities in the future.

Complimenting the outdoor platforms are new indoor TetherPoint™ routers. Matching the outdoors naming theme, the options include Poplar, Aspen, and Sequoia: 

Poplar, the value packed option, includes a powerful 2.4Ghz WiFi radio, while Aspen includes both 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz (AC1200 WiFi) broadcast capability.

Sequoia is unmatched, offering high power 2.4Ghz & 5Ghz radios, (AC1200 WiFi) up to 2 additional LTE embedded modems, USB 3.0 port for up to Cat 20 and 5G futures, and a USB 2.0 port for tethering multiple handheld devices.

All three routers include the ability to add an additional built-in LTE modem, SD Card for data collection, and USB 2.0 port to easily tether up to 3 different simultaneous handheld devices for data aggregation. Coupling with an outdoor platform creates a parallel processing connectivity solution unmatched by anything in the industry.

“This initiative was the WiFiRanger team’s opportunity to redefine connectivity for the RV industry, and our team nailed it. They built a flexible, upgradeable, and comprehensive suite of solutions that will appeal to all OE and Aftermarket customers. We’re proud of the progress and looking forward to offering our customers the opportunity to access the highest level of connectivity with proven reputation and features, available at any price point.” Continued Hogan.

Teton and Poplar will begin shipping October 15th, 2019 to aftermarket customers. Denali and Aspen will commence shipments mid-November, and Everest and Sequoia will begin shipping January 1st, 2020.

WiFiRanger to Debut Converge™ Innovative New Product Ecosystem at RVX

Convergence Of All Aspects Of Connectivity, Control, and Media User Experience.  WiFi, LTE, HDTV, AM/FM, GPS, AI & Voice Control.

March 4th, 2019 – Meridian, Idaho – WiFiRanger, the leader in Innovative RV connectivity & control solutions, today announced their next generation product line to debut at RVX including a complete new ecosystem of products encapsulating innovative improvements to Connectivity, Voice & App Control, and Media Access Simplification.

“The entire objective of the Converge™ product line has been to re-think standards the legacy RV industry has dealt with, and then envision what the user experience should be. Converge™ delivers this through a rooftop system, encapsulating multiple systems & minimizing footprint while converging WiFi, LTE, Radio, HDTV, and GPS into a single beautiful enclosure. The indoor products include our Private AI Universal Assistant, and the wall InfoCenter that simplifies RV connectivity and control for the owner. All products are equally controlled by voice, or via more traditional handheld device apps.”

Kelly Hogan
CEO & Visionary, WiFiRanger

The fin shaped outdoor base platform is designed to include WiFiRangers renowned long range WiFi, LTE & GPS solutions, with an optional AM/FM and high gain amplified omni HDTV antenna for OTA TV, as well as the new OptionDeck(™) OnPoint antenna rotator allowing long range HDTV directional head end antennas to be easily pointed. The indoor AI Universal Assistant product houses the powerful & private AI engine allowing voice control of all systems within the RV, in an ergonomic ceiling mounted package including beam forming LEDs with microphones, as well as a convenient LED ceiling light. The InfoCenter wall device replaces the legacy TV wall plate with a powerful Antenna/Cable switch box including amplifier DC injection, offering dual USB charge points, and a convenient handheld device holding bail. It may also include a touch screen enabled WiFiRanger, allowing more features and converting stand alone WiFiRanger outdoor units into the desired pack offering.

“An equally important consideration in the design of the ecosystem was to re-imagine the aesthetics of devices inside, and on the roof of the RV. It seemed to us that manufacturers and owners were limited to roof devices resembling buckets, boxes, or mushrooms, so we proved that function and beauty can co-exist in an aerodynamic and aesthetically pleasing fin shape, housing communication antennas and facilitating options for the future.” Continued Hogan.

Volume orders may be placed now for the product line and will begin shipping to key OE’s and aftermarket customers in July 2019.


WiFiRanger products are envisioned, designed and assembled in Meridian Idaho. Information and ordering is available directly at WIFIRanger.com and direct inquiries can be emailed to sales@wifiranger.com, or call 208-321-5544.
