Sequans and IGI Mobile develop smallest WiMAX pocket router for Korea Telecom

4G chipmaker Sequans Communications announced that it
provided the 4G chip inside the new mini Egg” pocket router available from
Korea Telecom.

The device, about the size of an egg, enables users to
easily add 4G
connectivity to smartphones and tablets via a tiny mobile router that fits in a
pocket. IGI Mobile, a Korean maker of wireless broadband communications
devices, manufactured the device.

We are very pleased to work with IGI Mobile to deliver
this powerful 4G product to the Korean marketplace. The design is modern and
compact, and it provides great value for users, allowing them to add 4G speed
instantly to almost any mobile device,” said Georges Karam, CEO, Sequans.

Sequans’ technology has helped us to make a tiny mobile
router that is about half the size of the previous version. Sequans’ very small
SQN1220 chip solution and its ultra low power consumption technology allowed us
to reduce the package and battery size significantly while delivering hours of
continuous WiMAX surfing and overall a very high performance 4G router,” said
Daniel Park, CEO, IGI Mobile.
