Hobnob Delivers the Power of Cloud Networking

The company's new virtual network adapter intelligently combines WiFi and 4G directly on user devices

PALO ALTO, Calif., Feb. 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Hobnob®, an acknowledged leader in providing superior levels of mobile network connectivity, today announced that users can enjoy the benefits of true cloud-based networking by downloading the Hobnob Virtual Network Adapter (VNA) from the company's online store and installing it on their devices.  The VNA combines WiFi and 4G to provide a single, seamless connection to Hobnob's global cloud of ultra-fast servers, delivering new levels of performance and reliability that leverage the advantages of the lowest-cost WiFi networks available.

Developed by Hobnob, the new virtual network adapter is the first of its kind and represents the future of networking.  "When it comes to mobile networking, hardware is dead," said Aron Hall, founder and CEO of Hobnob.  "No longer do users have to bolt a 'heavy metal' network appliance to their vehicle to get the most reliable connectivity.  It's all about cloud-based software now, which people can download from our web site and install directly on the mobile device of their choice."

In the case of large-capacity applications—such as corporate motor coaches that support scores of technical employees who require mobile network connectivity––users can also take advantage of a standalone mobile router configuration available from Hobnob.  In essence, this combines all four major 4G carriers plus WiFi such as Google's Guest WiFi into one seamless and highly reliable mobile network.

Ahead of the Cloud Curve

"We foresaw the potential of cloud networking years ago and have worked diligently to create the first pure software offering in the mobile network cloud," said Hall.  "This paves the way for new levels of network performance and reliability for people working in professions where every second literally matters, from firefighters to paramedics, police officers to other first responders.  It also benefits IT/datacenter emergency response staff and mobile c-level execs who can't afford dropped VOIP calls, video drops or VPN disconnects."

The new virtual network adapter enables Hobnob to suit individual needs more easily than ever.  For example, users can combine AT&T 4G built in to their Toughpad with a Verizon JetPack on board their vehicle and WiFi at their fire stations.  Medical professionals can easily add the WiFi networks at their local hospitals and seamlessly roam from ambulance to the ER network and back without dropping their connection.  Hobnob users can also combine a portable Verizon hotspot with the built-in AT&T 4G on their Windows tablets, preventing the dropping of mission-critical Skype calls or live video meetings while on the road.

Founded in 2003 and headquartered in Palo Alto, California, Hobnob delivers unprecedented levels of reliability and performance to mobile professionals seeking network connectivity while on the go.  The company's service intelligently combines WiFi, multiple wireless wide-area networks (WWANs) and even wired networks to provide network availability without peer in the industry.  Hobnob can point to hundreds of thousands of unique users and millions of hours of user time on the Hobnob network.
