The Teton was officially announced in September 2019. It went on sale for pre-order on October 1st 2019, and units are expected to ship the week of October 14th.
Though all Converge products have the same external plastic shell, under the hood they are all different.
In the case of the Teton - the core is the same 2.4GHz 802.11n medium range Wi-Fi radio and antenna array already found in the WiFiRanger Sky4 (a low end unit primarily made for RV manufacturers), but with "improved Wi-Fi chips and calibration" and an integrated GPS chip as well.
The Converge platforms are designed for flexibility and upgradeability - with the electronics inside the roof-mounted shell claimed to be easily upgradeable by swapping out the "circuitry tray" to enable future features, or to upgrade to a higher-end model down the road.
In other words - if your RV comes with a Converge Teton on the roof, you should be able to turn it into a high-end Converge Everest without needing to remove and replace the plastics shark fin shell on your RV roof.
Though the "Converge" product line was launched to bring HDTV, AM/FM, cellular, and Wi-Fi together into a single unit on an RV roof - the consumer version of the WiFiRanger Converge Teton does not have HDTV or AM/FM functionality built in.
However, the Teton versions being sold to RV manufacturers do offer the TV and radio antenna options, and upgrade modules will eventually be made available to add these features to the consumer Teton version for those interested.
The Converge Teton can be paired with one of WiFiRanger's indoor router systems (the Poplar, Aspen, or Spruce) if you desire - but an indoor router is not required. If you do add an indoor router, WiFiRanger's user interface allows the two units operate (relatively) seamlessly as one - with just a single unified control panel which lets you choose your upstream connections and manage your locally connected devices.
