Wave WiFi has added 3G and 4G cellular products to its line. These models work with the company’s WiFi antennas, routers and web-based firmware. The browser-based interface lets users identify and connect to WiFi hot spots based on frequency, signal strength, encryption and availability. The new Tidal Wave units also allow concurrent listening across 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz WiFi channels, along with SIM-activated cellular data. A gigabit port supports the fastest connection speeds, and high-gain antennas seek the farthest-reaching connections attainable. Price: $3,295. wavewifi.com
