VGo and Novatel show off 4G LTE Connectivity

SAN DIEGO, California – October 7, 2011: VGo Communications, the leader in robotic telepresence, announced the demonstration of a prototype VGo with the integrated capability to connect directly to the Verizon 4G LTE network.   The unique connectivity is result of a joint development effort between VGo Communications, Novatel Wireless and the Verizon Wireless Innovation Center.  The operational VGo can be seen and driven in the Novatel Wireless booth (#301) at the CTIA Enterprise and Applications Conference in San Diego from October 11 through October 13.

 “We’ve maintained our sleek, cool design by invisibly integrating a Novatel Wireless Expedite® E362 module inside the VGo,” said Tim Root, VGo’s Co-Founder and VP of Development.  “VGo’s mobility and services expands infinitely by 4G LTE connectivity.   Many organizations will also find deployment greatly simplified with 4G coverage embedded inside.”

“When we developed our line of embedded 4GExpedite  modules, we knew 4G would allow for a whole new set of  innovative applications,” said Rob Hadley, CMO of Novatel Wireless, “The VGo innovation is truly demonstrating the power of 4G and the potential for enabling very unique capabilities that can change and enhance people’s lives.” 

With the VGo solution, an individual’s presence is replicated in a distant location such that they can interact and perform the task at hand in ways not previously possible.  Now they can see, be seen, hear, be heard and move around in any remote facility –just as if they were there.  VGo will enable: businesses to increase productivity of remote and travelling employees, healthcare providers to deliver lower cost services and improved quality of care, and homebound students to attend school – all with a great user experience and at an affordable price.
