The xPico Wi-Fi module features simultaneous access point and client functionality. This enables the creation of its own secure Wi-Fi network for direct access as well as maintaining a Wi-Fi client connection to the existing Wi-Fi network. This allows machines to be directly accessed via smartphone or tablet. Pricing for the xPico Wi-Fi start at $27.80 for 5,000 unit quantities.
