GlobeTrotter Connect provides Option GlobeTrotter owners with the proprietary software of the company when it comes to connecting to the Internet using supported hardware such as the GlobeTrotter HSDPA USB Modem or the GlobeSurfer iCON.
Option N.V. is a publicly quoted technology company specialized in broadband wireless technology products. Option's objective is to make sure you always get easy access to information you need, anywhere. Connect cards are at the heart of the company alongside embedded wireless modules and their correspondent software needs.
Option also designed, developed, produced and commercialized the first card to integrate the industry standards of HSDPA (High-Speed Downlink Packet Access), UMTS (Universal Mobile Telecommunications System), EDGE (Enhanced Data rates for GSM Evolution) as well as Wi-Fi into the GlobeTrotter Fusion+, a world premiere.
Option is the worldwide market bellwether in the wireless broadband niche and can benefit from high margins across the whole product range. Intentions from an incipient Intel-Nokia partnership which would deteriorate Option's market share were ephemeral and expeditiously dropped, proving Option's leadership as well as high ingress-to-market barriers even for immensely colossal corporations.
Option's customer base has grown substantially every year, current customers are Sharp Corporation, Vodafone, Orange, Samsung Electronics, Fujitsu Siemens, T-Mobile, Wataniya Telecom, Cingular Wireless (now AT&T), Airtel, Telstra, Acer, Uniwill and Telenor, to enumerate but a few.
All in all, GlobeTrotter Connect is the product of a very important company, thus a high-profile application for distinguished owners of Option’s products. With a tradition of nearly thirty years in its activity domain, Option N.V. can only develop quality software for their sophisticated devices and GlobeTrotter Connect is definitely one of them.
