Semiconductor, a leading designer and supplier of advanced 4G mobile
semiconductor solutions, in collaboration with Direct
Beam, a global supplier of advanced wireless software and
technology, and Alpha
Networks, a global leader in the networking ODM/OEM industry, today
announced the availability of a new revolutionary low-cost, high
performance, fixed 4G LTE indoor and outdoor wireless router designed to
provide superior wireless performance and increase subscriber
satisfaction. The new router’s unique features reduce the installation
setup time, OpEx and churn for service providers.
This unique LTE router combines GCT’s highly integrated LTE chip,
GDM7243, with Direct Beam’s patented advanced software algorithms and
technology. With this revolutionary technology, the LTE router’s
coverage and speed are up to ten times higher than any other router
available today. In addition, the device automatically performs
self-beams steering adjustments when changes in the RF environment
occur, therefore maximizing the best link performance at all times.
Alpha Network’s indoor and outdoor products have been developed based on
GCT and Direct Beam’s patented technology and are available today for
various LTE band combinations. The LTE router will be demonstrated at
Mobile World Congress in Barcelona at GCT’s hospitality suite in Hall 6,
6O11MR, as well as Alpha Networks’ suite in Hall 1, 1A18MR.
“We are pleased to be working closely with Direct Beam and Alpha
Networks to combine our extensive LTE expertise to develop this
cutting-edge new router,” said Alex Sum, GCT’s vice president of sales
and marketing. “This new router features an innovative new concept that
allows exceptional wireless link performance and up to ten times broader
range and throughput, while maintaining low BOM cost.”
“We are very proud of our partnership with GCT Semiconductor and Alpha
Networks,” said Erez Marom, CEO of Direct Beam. “Our patented technology
provides game-changing coverage and speed performance improvements for
LTE mobile routers. GCT and Alpha Networks’ LTE product line, based on
Direct Beam technology inside, allows wireless service providers to
significantly increase the service quality of their fixed LTE wireless
broadband service, thus improving customer satisfaction and reducing
churn. Most importantly, the products enable advanced value added
services such as over the top (OTT) video content, which will generate

To paraphrase someone famous, "The definition of insanity is to do something the same way over and over again and expect a different result".
Humans are creatures of habit and when it comes to storage, old habits die hard.
Why do we continue to put our faith in legacy storage providers when they haven't invented anything new in decades. Sure, they re-badge their products every couple of years to make their messaging look modern, but ultimately, it's the same old stuff with a new coat of lipsti...
