Ultra small Wi-Fi/WiMAX router adds 4G connectivity to smartphones and tablets

PARIS, France – June 29, 2011 – 4G chipmaker Sequans Communications S.A. (NYSE: SQNS) is the provider of the 4G chip inside the new “mini Egg” pocket router now available from Korea Telecom. The unique 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 leading 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,” said Georges Karam, Sequans CEO. “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.” 

“Sequans’ technology has helped us to make a tiny mobile router that is about half the size of the previous version,” said Daniel Park, CEO, IGI Mobile.  “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.” 

The mini Egg (KR-MR100) is available today from Korea Telecom.
