Connectivity

Utilizng Wi-Fi, Cellular Data Connections

Many of the built-in apps on the Care Team Tablet require, or can be enhanced by, being connected to the Internet. There are two options for connecting to the Internet - Wi-Fi and cellular data. 

Wi-Fi Overview

What is Wi-Fi?

Wireless connectivity, often known as Wi-Fi, is the technology that allows a device to connect to the internet without the need for a physical wired connection. A small device known as a wireless transmitter, or hub, is required; this device receives information from the internet via a home or business broadband connection.

Why connect to Wi-Fi?

Most Wi-Fi connections allow for unlimited data usage, and can, therefore, limit reliance on cellular data (see following section).


How do you connect to Wi-Fi?

Most private wireless networks require entering a unique password. Once you enter the password and connect to the network, the tablet will automatically connect in the future.

To connect to Wi-Fi:

1. Open the Settings app

Choose a Network:

2. Select Wi-Fi from the menu on the left.  

3. Available networks will display under CHOOSE A NETWORK. Tap on the desired network.

Enter Your Password

4. Enter the password for the network and tap “Join”.  


Cellular Data Overview

What is cellular data?

A cellular data network can be used to connect to the Internet when a Wi-Fi Network is not available. Cellular data plans are set up through carriers - such as Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, & T-Mobile - and provide access to the Internet through cell towers.


Where is cellular data available?

WiFi has a limited range, whereas cellular data is available as long as you are within your carrier’s coverage.


 How does is work?

Care Team Tablets are set up with a cellular data plan. This ensures that caregivers can connect to the Internet when caring for individuals that do not have Internet access.  

Each organization has cellular data plans that allow for a certain amount of usage that is shared between all of your organization's devices. By using a Wi-Fi connection when available, your organizations can limit cellular data usage and prevent overages.
