Purple.ai, WiFi analytics and engagement platform for intelligent spaces has announced it will be expanding its offering by imminently introducing what they feel is the answer to portable WiFi.
The company, which prides itself on developing intuitive, powerful WiFi insight for venues and physical spaces, will develop and manufacture their new offering in-house.
“We are thrilled to be able to release our new WiFi Umbrella and showcase our latest innovation to the world,” says Gavin Wheeldon, CEO of Purple. “Our mission as an organisation is to turn the world purple, which we can now do. Literally.”
The WiFi Umbrella acts as an access point and will automatically connect to open hotspots as you roam, seamlessly passing Internet access on by broadcasting a private SSID that your phone can connect to. The signal is boosted by using its antenna ribs, waterproof hydrofoil and patented ConnectedCanopy (Connopy) technology, meaning you’re always connected.

It will officially go on sale on 24/11/2017 (Black Friday) at a one-day-only half price of £49.99 or $50.
