The new line of 4G Greenpacket Pocket Modem enables the consumer to
create a portable hotspot whereby they can connect multiple wireless
devices to the Internet or even share fast, reliable and secure
broadband access with friends. This device fulfills consumers’ desire
for a connected lifestyle with optimal convenience and ease, at the same
time, help them save on cost by maintaining just one data plan for
multiple broadband devices.
According to Kelvin Lee, Senior General Manager of Green Packet Berhad,
the Greenpacket Pocket Modem was developed after a global consumer
survey by the Company indicated that WiMAX-WiFi pocket modems top the
wish-list for 4G consumer devices. Developed with the user in mind, the
Greenpacket Pocket Modem is also the most user-friendly being the
smallest, lightest and slimmest WiMAX-WiFi pocket modem in the market.
As a preferred vendor to Telecommunication Operators and ISPs globally,
Greenpacket worked closely with operators during the product development
stages for the Greenpacket Pocket Modem. Lee said, “WiMAX operators want
a competitive edge in the market and the Greenpacket Pocket Modem for 4G
WiMAX is one of the many avenues we created in close collaboration with
4G-WiMAX operators to allow them to offer end-consumers a portable
hotspot experience with 4G speeds – a highly in-demand value-add,” said
Lee is confident that the pocket modem will change the way people live,
work and play and WiMAX operators in mature markets are starting to see
more customer demand for lifestyle devices for nomadic broadband. He
shared that Greenpacket’s new pocket modem line is already garnering
interests from operators in South East Asia, Europe and North America.
Lee’s optimism is supported by market trends on the adoption of USB
dongles and continued proliferation of WiFi-embedded devices. A recent
report by Maravedis cited that USB dongles represent close to 30% of the
device market share and will continue to be the preferred device among
customers of the top 50 WiMAX operators to gain nomadic connectivity.
Meanwhile, WiFi has become indispensable in our lives and will continue
to dominate shipments. In-Stat projected that WiFi-embedded mobile
phones will exceed three-quarters of a billion units by 2013. It also
states that WiFi-enabled entertainment devices such as gaming consoles,
cameras and portable media players will see an increase from 119 million
in 2009 to 216 million in 2013.
This new pocket modem line complements Greenpacket’s comprehensive
portfolio of award-winning WiMAX offerings, and according to Lee, the
product expansion is part of the Company’s continuing efforts to open up
new opportunities for operators and enrich the mobile broadband
connectivity experience of end-consumers as 4G mobile broadband
applications and services grow.
Greenpacket will be showcasing its Greenpacket Pocket Modem and its full
range of award-winning field-tested devices at the upcoming Innovation
Africa Digital Summit 2011 in Kenya, Africa and CTIA Wireless 2011 in
Orlando, Florida on 22 to 24 March.
