HOUSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep 5, 2018--Today, DHI Telecom CEO, Wallace Davis announced the world-wide release of Sapphire Touch, just one year after the release of the original Sapphire International Mobile Hotspot, which sold tens of thousands of devices. What’s new is a touchscreen that monitors the data level, and 15 hours of battery life on one charge, which also works as a USB Power Bank. Both devices use the secure, CloudSIM platform.

The Sapphire Touch is $179 and comes in graphite black or white with a gold band. All Sapphire hotspots come with 500 free megabytes of international data. It takes only a minute to connect and just a few minutes to set up an account online. Sapphire devices are sold in stores at 35 military bases, including select Army & Air Force Exchange Services. They are sold online at ShopMyExchange.com and at SapphireGo.com.

DHI Telecom started in 2007 and built its reputation on developing reliable, commercial internet solutions in war zones where troop deployments are made with little notice. Traditional ways of getting cellular service were difficult 11 years ago and remain so. It involves purchasing SIM cards and local data plans for each country.

“The wasted hours add up while looking for a mobile store, sometimes in bazaars, and even from unscrupulous sellers. Sometimes, the data is stolen from hackers within hours of buying it,” Davis explained.

Sapphire mobile Wi-Fi hotspots create a secure hub that connect five devices to the internet. This technology enables soldiers and DoD personnel to take the internet with them to stay in touch with their family and friends back home. No SIM cards are needed, and international data plans for 100+ countries are instantly available online for downloads. The hotspots connect to the strongest cell signal creating a private 4G Wi-Fi hub. In addition to the military, international business and vacation travelers are an emerging market for Sapphire devices.

Davis specified, “For our armed services, a Sapphire hotspot is not just the internet, it’s a lifeline.”

DHI Telecom is an official U.S. government telecommunications solutions provider, Army & Air Force Exchange Service, Advanced Telecom Division concession, and a Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command internet supplier.
