Dr. Kurt Lauk joins Tachyum Board of Advisors

SAN JOSE, California, USA, 18-Sep-2019 — /EPR INTERNET NEWS/ — Today, Tachyum announced that Dr. Kurt Lauk has joined the company’s Board of Advisors. Dr. Lauk served on several management boards, including Daimler and Audi, and as a member of the EU Parliament. For 15 years, he was Chairman of the Economy Council (Wirtschaftsrat) and advised Angela Merkel in that capacity. He is Founder and President of Globe CP GmbH, a personally owned family office since 2000.

Dr. Lauk brings to Tachyum’s Board of Advisors valuable insights regarding European industries, including his deep understanding of European manufacturers and suppliers, along with expertise in international strategy and extensive experience bringing technology innovations to market.

Dr. Lauk has extensive European business experience, primarily through his positions as a Member of the Board of Management and Head of Worldwide Commercial Vehicles Division of Daimler Chrysler (1996-1999), as well as Deputy Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer of Audi AG (1989-1992).

Dr. Lauk currently serves as independent director on the supervisory boards of Magna Inc (Toronto), and Fortemedia (Cupertino). In July 2018 Nomura, Asia’s global investment bank, appointed him as Germany and Austria Advisory Board Chairman. Since 2000 he is a Trustee of IISS (International Institute of Strategic Studies in London). He previously held the position of Chief Executive Officer at Zinser Textil Machinery GmbH, 1978-1984 Vice President/Consultant/Partner at Boston Consulting Group, and Chief Financial Officer & Controller for VEBA AG (today E.ON SE).

Dr. Lauk earned a graduate degree from Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München, an MBA `77 from Stanford Graduate School of Business and a doctorate in international politics from the University of Kiel. His extensive and varied experience includes service as a Member of the European Parliament (2004 2009), including as a Member of the Economic and Monetary Affairs Committee, and as a Deputy Member of the Foreign and Security Affairs Committee.

“Tachyum is honored to have an international business and technology luminary of Dr. Lauk’s caliber on our Board of Advisors,” said Dr. Radoslav Danilak, Tachyum’s Founder and CEO. “I am personally excited to work directly with Kurt, to be able to rely on his advice and counsel, especially regarding EU business strategies and how Tachyum can help facilitate EU technological sovereignty.”

“Today, Slovakia is the world’s largest per capita car producer. I look forward to working with Tachyum and Dr. Lauk to identify Prodigy value-added insertion points within Industry 4.0 and the automotive sector,” said Adrian Vycital representing Tachyum’s lead investor IPM, “We believe Tachyum will play an essential role in creating an innovation ecosystem, which is a key factor in the transformation of the Slovak economy from manufacturing to knowledge-based.”

Tachyum is on track with the design of its flagship product, code named Prodigy, the world’s first Universal Processor. High performance and ultra-low power, Prodigy offers industry-leading performance for data center, AI, and HPC workloads. With telecoms transitioning to 5G, Prodigy will bring AI from cell tower mounted datacenters to power intelligent IoT devices and autonomous systems. Tachyum is planning a 7nm tapeout next year, with volume production in 2021.

Tachyum’s Prodigy Universal Processor Chip is the smallest and fastest general purpose, 64-core processor developed to date, requiring 10x less processor power, and reducing processor cost by 3x. Prodigy will directly enable a 32-Tensor Exaflop supercomputer and allow the building of machines more powerful than the human brain by 2021, years ahead of industry expectations. Prodigy reduces data center TCO (annual total cost of ownership) by 4x, through its disruptive processor architecture and a smart compiler that has made many parts of the hardware found in typical processors redundant. Fewer transistors, fewer and shorter wires, due to a smaller, simpler core, translates into much greater speed and power efficiency for the Prodigy processor.

Zyxel to showcase its LTE / 5G product portfolio at the MVNO World Congress in Amsterdam

COPENHAGEN, 21-May-2019 — /EPR INTERNET NEWS/ — In tight cooperation with leading module technology vendor Quectel, we have committed to a very aggressive launch schedule, having outdoor 5G C-Band sample units ready for customer sampling during August 2019. This is Zyxel’s phase one 5G rollout, with C-Band Sub 6GHz frequency support. Next 5G phase two rollout will include both indoor and outdoor 5G products supporting C-band and mmWave support.

The benefits of 5G
5G is an extremely hot topic as it is predicted to replace fixed line internet with powerful mobile connections – but at the core of all the fuzz; 5G is all about speed and improved latency. Strong mobile connections with rapid data transfers and much shorter latency. Where 4G connections have a 50-100 millisecond latency, 5G will take us all below 1 millisecond in ideal conditions.

With the great improvement in performance, spectrum efficiency and latency compared to current LTE standards, Zyxel 5G products have the potential to provide a vastly improved and responsive connectivity experience between outdoor devices and the 5G network, opening up the possibilities of an entirely new generation of high-speed Fixed Wireless Access.

5G technology partners
Zyxel’s 5G products are built on Qualcomm’s leading Snapdragon x55 chipset in conjunction with Quectel module technology. We start releasing our 5G product portfolio with weather hardened outdoor units, ready to be easily mounted on the outside of buildings or poles, yielding the best possible conditions for 5G FWA connectivity.

Fixed Wireless Access – 5G’s first real world application
Fixed Wireless – using wireless to replace wired DSL/Fiber internet – is one of the first use cases most Mobile Carriers, MVNO’s and Service Providers are attempting with 5G. To achieve the full benefits of 5G speeds and latency, an outdoor 5G unit is the best way to achieve this, which is Zyxel’s 5G launch strategy, as the mid-band 5G frequencies does not penetrate houses and windows as efficiently as low-band LTE frequencies.

Phase one of Zyxel’s 5G rollout will support the C-band spectrum and will begin during summer 2019. Phase two will take advantage of the high-band mmWave spectrum estimated to be ready in late 2020, early 2021, producing blazing speeds comparable to 10G fixed fiber connections.

Come see us at the MVNO World Congress in Amsterdam
Visit Zyxel at MVNOs World Congress in Amsterdam to get a first-hand look at our impressive LTE / 5G product portfolio. We will be in booth 52 between May 21-24 and hope to see you there! You can also contact your local partner or send an e-mail to isp@zyxel.eu.
