5BARz Announces Worlds First Carrier Grade High Performance Network Extender Device During Mobile World Congress in Barcelona

5BARz International, Inc. (OTC: BARZ), (www.5BARz.com) ("5BARz" or “the Company") a technology leader in “last mile wireless connectivity” solutions for mobile network operators around the world, today announced they have created an entirely new category in the carrier network ecosystem, the “Network Extender.” The 5Barz Network Extender, the world’s first, is a highly evolved, innovative, carrier grade technology and device that delivers much improved cellular signals, enhanced voice, data, and video reception, and extended battery life on all cellular equipped devices globally. The 5Barz Network Extender was unveiled at an invitation only event, which was attended by wireless industry executives, investors, members of the press and analysts during the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.

Key features include:

  • Smallest form factor in the industry: Dimensions are 5.5” x 3.9” x 1.6” and weighs a mere 10.5 ounces
  • True “Plug and Play” ease
  • Coverage of up to 4000 Square feet
  • No broadband or Internet connection required.
  • System gain of up to 70 db
  • Supports multiple frequency bands in 2G/3G modes with full support of LTE soon to be announced.
  • Remote management capability for the company’s mobile network operator partners to monitor, update, control gain and turn-on/turn-off device from the Network Operations Center (NOC).

The 5Barz Network Extender is a consumer device, beautifully designed and available in an array of colors. The 5Barz Network Extender will be distributed through 5Barz’ network carrier partners directly to their subscribers.

The 5Barz Network Extender delivers ubiquitous wireless coverage with a dramatically improved end-user experience without deployment of new and costly macro networks. Leveraging 5Barz Network Extenders, network operators will be able to deliver enhanced reliability, high-bandwidth services, such as, streaming videos, video conferencing, voice quality and increased battery life to their subscribers. In doing so the carriers themselves will benefit by significantly reduced churn and increasing ARPU.

The 5Barz engineering team successfully demonstrated the 5barz Network Extender over a live network in Barcelona and received endorsements from many senior level industry executives and the global telecom press on the products specifications, feature sets and benefits.

“Our product launch during Mobile World Congress represents a major milestone for 5Barz and we are excited to begin field trials, pursuant to our existing collaboration agreement with a major network carrier, in the second quarter. Further, we fully expect to enter into additional collaboration agreements with the many interested major network carriers from around the world in the immediate future. Currently, the 5Barz Network Extender supports frequencies in various countries in Europe, Latin American and Asia, and will support remaining frequencies worldwide in the near future,” says Mr. Daniel Bland, founder, and CEO of 5BARz International. “We are excited to deliver a world-class consumer experience with our new device, which is simple to use with carrier grade capabilities. The 5Barz Network Extender includes several important technical innovations for achieving high system gains in a small form factor by leveraging our patented and patent pending technologies. Our roadmap and innovation pipeline will enable us to ensure we deliver even more compelling feature sets and performance for carriers and end-users,” stated Naresh Soni, CTO of 5Barz International.

In the world of DevOps there are ‘known good practices’ – aka ‘patterns’ – and ‘known bad practices’ – aka ‘anti-patterns.' Many of these patterns and anti-patterns have been developed from real world experience, especially by the early adopters of DevOps theory; but many are more feasible in theory than in practice, especially for more recent entrants to the DevOps scene. In this power panel at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, moderated by DevOps Conference Chair Andi Mann, panelists will dis...
See storage differently! Storage performance problems have only gotten worse and harder to solve as applications have become largely virtualized and moved to a cloud-based infrastructure. Storage performance in a virtualized environment is not just about IOPS, it is about how well that potential performance is guaranteed to individual VMs for these apps as the number of VMs keep going up real time. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Dhiraj Sehgal, in product and marketing at Tintri, will discu...
