A little clarification here. The DV3000 and/or ThumbDV only convert audio to AMBE+ (used by D-STAR) or AMBE+2 (used by Fusion, DMR, etc.). It does nothing with RF, Protocols, etc. So no, it does not create a 'mini-repeater' or hotspot, etc.
It can be used by a software application to create a useful tool. One of those is an analog to D-STAR bridge. See http://nwdigitalradio.com/dv3000-analog-to-d-star-bridge
It can also be used with DummyRepeater or WinDV to connect your computer's speaker and microphone to the D-STAR network.
NW Digital Radio is working on a Radio which can provide a high power access point/transceiver, in the meantime, for low power applications (e.g. in the shack) look at something like the DVMega.
I suggest viewing http://nwdigitalradio.com/john-speaks-on-dv-modes-at-microhams-2015 to get a better idea how this all works together.
