MiFi server open to devs

Novatel has opened the MiFi web server's Common Gateway Interface to developers, according to an announcement. Third-party companies should as a result be able to access the onboard processors of MiFi hotspots, enabling broader software support and as well as MiFi uses beyond a straightforward Internet connection. A programming guide has been published on Novatel's developer site; the API should support both current and future MiFi hardware.

In the United States MiFi devices are currently carried by Sprint and Verizon. These transform a 3G cellular link into an 802.11g Wi-Fi hotspot, to which as many as five devices can be connected simultaneously. Sales with other American carriers, such as AT&T, have not been discussed publicly.
