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

Stanford Student Entrepreneur Raised $800K on Kickstarter

Palo Alto, CA, April 02, 2015 — /EPR INTERNET NEWS/ — Stanford student Jerming Gu, founder of CANDY HOUSE Inc., raised more than $800,000 dollars after his product launch on Kickstarter. Sesame – the world’s first instant smart lock – reached its funding goal in nine hours when first introduced. Currently, nearly 5,000 supporters have backed the project.

Sesame allows users to lock and unlock their doors using the Sesame app on their smartphones. It is the only smart lock that syncs the movement of the lock with the phone, providing exact control of the angle to which the lock turns.

Gu is a mechanical engineering master candidate from Stanford University. Originally from Taiwan, Gu is someone who usually thinks outside the box. Disruptor, troublemaker, entrepreneur, as he calls himself.

“There has got to be smarter ways to live our life,” Gu said.

Gu said he got the idea for smart lock due to his experience living in Asia where technology is relatively less developed.

With five-patented design, Sesame works with just about any deadbolt in the world. Users can install it in seconds, without replacing existing lock or removing anything. Current model is optimized for US/Canada/northern Europe Markets.

CANDY HOUSE also offers optional access point, which connects Sesame to the Internet when plugged into any nearby outlet. It lets users control Sesame wherever they are.

With Internet connection capability, users can allow guests in remotely. They can also control who has access and when. To ensure safety, the Sesame app also sends out a notification whenever the door opens or closes.

About CANDY HOUSE
Founded and developed by Stanford University students, CANDY HOUSE, Inc. is a candy store that sells dreams, putting the joy and surprise of innovative technology in the hands of consumers, just like candy. It is also a design house, developing and manufacturing products that inspire a minimal lifestyle. It launched its first product – Sesame, the world’s first instant smart lock – in February 2015.
