Sprint has announced that its Data Link and Static IP networking services now operate over the Sprint 4G LTE network. Both products are compatible with 3G as well as 4G, and include upgrades designed to make it easier for businesses and government agencies to deploy, manage and extend an enterprise network to modems, tablets and handsets.
Sprint Data Link enables business networks to reach beyond the limits of a corporate enterprise WAN. It provides mobile employees and connected devices with access to their mission-critical business information over a private wireless network, separate from the public Internet.
The Data Link comes with a 99.9% availability service level agreement (SLA) and is supported on a vast array of 3G- and 4G-capable devices including handsets, tablets, laptops, mobile broadband cards, hotspots and M2M embedded modems. Uses range from setting up retail kiosks, seasonal storefronts, temporary offices, lottery terminals and wireline backup to remote monitoring and home healthcare.
The carrier’s Static IP assigns the same IP address to a device each time that device authenticates and accesses the Internet. It allows companies to more easily manage remote wireless devices including M2M applications, handsets and tablets. Sprint provides businesses with the ability to purchase a contiguous, sequential range or block of IP addresses, which can ease the deployment of devices and simplicity of firewall configuration.
