If you want a small more enterprise-friendly functionality in your broadband mobile router, Seagate and Verizon have a treat for you. Their new combination storage/mobile access draw allows for sharing both a Verizon LTE mobile connection and files across the built-in hard drive. The 500GB conventional crawl acts as a faithful shared drive/file server for up to three busy users, fair like Seagate’s similar WiFi-only FreeAgent product available today. It comes with a battery as well, so untethered access should be god for a few hours, though immoderate use of the hard crawl will lower this. The unit is being developed for corporate customers at the moment, with consumers coming some time after initial release. To that end, the crawl also includes remote server access built-in t its software. Connect to your FTP site, and files can be automatically downloaded to the drive’s on board storage. To keep matters fascinating while you’re waiting for your flight, it connects naively with Netflix and streams it to any computer or mobile draw – no app required. The draw has no set free date, but a Seagate representative said they’ve been working on it for 18 months, and it would be available soon.
