San Diego-based Inseego, a maker of telecommunications technology, said that it donated mobile hotspots to Northern California VOAD (Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster) network providing “critical communications during the power outages and wildfires that have displaced hundreds of thousands of residents statewide.”

Inseego said it is also offering 4G LTE mobile hotspots to agencies in need.

Inseego is also donating backup batteries and solar-powered portable chargers.

“Our MiFi mobile hotspots take a single cellular connection and turn it into an instant Wi-Fi network that supports up to 16 users,” said Inseego Chairman and CEO Dan Mondor. “In addition to delivering 4G LTE communications, these hotspots provide exceptionally long battery life, and can even be used to boost the battery power on connected devices. … these devices can truly be a lifesaver.”
