The MiFi 5510L is the fifth 4G LTE MiFi® Intelligent Mobile Hotspot device developed and brought to market by Novatel Wireless. The device exterior is based on Verizon Wireless’ new iconic design with a red translucent lens. Coupled with Novatel Wireless’ award-winning MiFi Mobile Hotspot technology inside, the MiFi 5510L provides best-in-class performance, ease-of-use, and an intuitive user experience.
The MiFi 5510L is a personal mobile hotspot providing Internet connectivity on the go and capable of sharing high-speed 4G LTE broadband Internet connectivity with up to 10 Wi-Fi enabled devices simultaneously.
