MiFi 2372 router adds DLNA support for media streaming

updated 12:50 pm EDT, Mon March 21, 2011

DLNA Server integrated with MiFi OS

Novatel Wireless has announced that its MiFi 2372 mobile broadband router has received certification from the DLNA, enabling the device to be used as a portable media server. The DLNA Server feature, which is built into the MiFi OS, allows users to add videos, music, photos or other files onto a microSD card and stream the content to other devices.

The DLNA standard is currently supported by a wide variety of gear, including set-top boxes, DVD and Blu-ray players, computers, A/V systems, and mobile devices, among others. Content is streamed over the MiFi's Wi-Fi network, which simultaneously maintains a connection to mobile broadband networks for Internet access.

The DLNA-certified MiFi 2372 initially will be available through AT&T. Novatel and AT&T have yet to announce a time-frame for updating existing 2372s.
