Chicago, 18 October 2010 – Greenpacket, a leading developer of next generation mobile broadband and networking solutions, launched its exciting UT WiMAX USB modem (“UT”) that comes with interchangeable snap-on skins of varied designs, a feature that young and trendy subscribers will lavish. The UT is also affordable for the younger subscriber segment and gives operators greater flexibility in pricing strategies.
Kelvin Lee, Senior General Manager of Green Packet Berhad said during UT’s launch at the 4G World 2010 conference in Chicago today, “Gadgets are becoming personal style statements. And the USB modem has joined the ranks of everyday personal consumer gadgets like smartphones, laptops, and flash drives. The UT with interchangeable skins will enable operators to support subscribers’ desire for personal expression and at the same time, engage them on a whole new level to win over the competition.”
Available in dual band 2.3-2.7GHz and 3.5GHz frequency bands, the cost-effective UT does not compromise on performance with its 2dBi Omni Printed Antenna and 23dBm transmission power to deliver exceptional signal strength and reception. To add to the user experience, the UT has an auto-installation feature to quickly and conveniently connect the user to a WiMAX broadband network. It also comes pre-installed with Greenpacket’s popular intelligent connection manager solution that enables users to roam between WiFi and WiMAX for a ubiquitous connectivity experience.
Lee said, “The UT is ideal for segment marketing to the young and trendy, and will deliver the important benefit of lower subscriber acquisition costs to operators. As a fully integrated mobile internet player in the 4G space with an operator arm and subsidiary, Packet One, that currently serves over 200,000 subscribers, we are unique in that we have deep field knowledge about what operators need to become successful and constantly innovate products like the UT to meet those needs.”
The UT complements Greenpacket’s cost-effective range, which started with the introduction of the EX series earlier this year to lower the cost barrier to entry for both WiMAX operators and their subscribers. Greenpacket’s portfolio of award-winning indoor, outdoor and USB WiMAX modems are field and interoperability tested by leading operators worldwide.
