Cedar Mountain and Sigmawifi Partner to Offer WifiUgo

Wed Sep 14, 2016

CHANTILLY, Virginia - Cedar Mountain RVI and Sigmawifi have partnered to offer WifiUgo, a product with widespread need. WifiUgo is a mobile Wi-Fi product that offers extreme portability and connectivity on the go, as well as in campground fringe areas where Wi-Fi has historically been a challenge.

The two companies came together on this new Wi-Fi product after discovering the need for it was highly present within the customer base of both companies. Cedar Mountain RVI, largely focused on RV products and services, recognized the need for better connectivity for RVers on the road full-time, customers working remotely from their RVs, and families running into bandwidth restrictions while enjoying the RV lifestyle.

“WifiUgo is a portable, turnkey Wi-Fi solution which includes hardware, software, device management and tech support,” Cedar Mountain CEO Wayne Hulit says.

Eli Morse, CEO of Sigmawifi, recognized the need for a robust RV hotspot on-the-go, as well as a need for a premium campsite Wi-Fi solution, especially for parks and camps with challenging internet. Sigmawifi specializes in developing Wi-Fi networks for campgrounds and RV parks, and designs them based on location, environment and specific needs. WifiUgo fits well with the company’s already established Wi-Fi network offerings.

“WifiUgo is focused on saving significant investment for owners who want great Wi-Fi at the edge of their campground, and want to offer their guests the ‘at home’ experience they are looking for,” Eli says.

WifiUgo will be available nationally, and pre-ordering is currently available. WifiUgo will be on display at the Hershey RV Show from Sept. 14-18 at booth 161. For more information about the product, or to contact for inquiry, visit www.wifiugo.com.
