Sewell Direct Releases the Gigaglider USB 3.0 to Ethernet Adapter

Orem, UT, Apr 17, 2013 (PRWeb.com via COMTEX) -- These days it's nearly impossible to work or go to school without the internet. People rely heavily on the internet to get things done. That means they need a fast, reliable internet connection. The problem is, while wireless is definitely convenient, it is also insecure and can be unreliable. For those that travel for their work, there's also the added nuisance of having to pay for internet in many hotels, if the hotel even offers Wi-Fi. Luckily the solution has been around for a long time: Ethernet cable. While cable is not nearly as convenient as wireless internet, it makes up for it by being faster, more reliable, and more secure.

Sewell's newly released Gigaglider USB to Ethernet adapter allows users to have an Ethernet connection, even if they don't have an Ethernet port on their device. By utilizing USB 3.0, the Gigaglider allows for download speeds of up to 1 Gbps. The fastest Wi-Fi routers only allow for speeds of around 300 Mbps, while others only allow for 100 Mbps. That's ten times slower than a wired connection. And while this adapter was designed for USB 3.0, it is backward compatible with USB 2.0 and USB 1.1, so it can be used with any device that has a USB port. But, older USB connections won't be able to have the 1 Gbps speeds that USB 3.0 can offer.

To make the Gigaglider more convenient for travelers, it was designed to be small and compact enough to fit easily into a pocket or computer bag. And after a one-time driver installation, using the Gigaglider is as simple as connecting the wires. That way, travelers will never be stuck without a fast, inexpensive internet connection in almost any hotel. The adapter consists of a little box that's smaller than an average cell phone with a USB cable attached to one end and an Ethernet port on the other end.

Especially considering the price, the Gigaglider offers a fast, reliable, secure, and easy to use solution for getting online.

Oracle in Enterprise Communications

Most in the industry have heard of the acquisition of Acme Packet by Oracle. What you may not know is that Oracle has a number of telecommunications products including a UC suite, WebRTC Session Controller, and Operations monitoring tools. Oracle is pursuing both the enterprise and service provider.

Featured Whitepapers

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services. Later we will mention ad-hoc WebRTC attacks and protection mechanisms, to close with an overview of identity management solutions.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Delivering Enterprise-Class Communications with WebRTC

WebRTC is an emerging industry standard for enabling Web browsers with real-time communications capabilities. It enables enterprises to enhance Web sites, empower BYOD users, and improve video collaboration and on-line meetings, to name but a few examples.

WebRTC Report Extract Reprint

This document examines the growing important of WebRTC, both generally and for telecom service providers. It considers the expanding range of use-cases, the multiple layers of interoperability likely to be desired by telcos, and some implications in terms of network integration and mobility.


Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services

The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.


The Oracle Communications WebRTC Session Controller enables communications service providers (CSPs) and enterprises to offer WebRTC services – from virtually any device, across virtually any network – with carrier-grade reliability and security.

- Summary


Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
