GCT Semiconductor, Inc. Key Developments

GCT Semiconductor Announces the Availability Fixed 4G LTE Indoor and Outdoor Wireless Router

GCT Semiconductor announced the availability of a new revolutionary low-cost, high performance, fixed 4G LTE indoor and outdoor wireless router designed to provide superior wireless performance and increase subscriber satisfaction. The new router's unique features reduce the installation setup time, OpEx and churn for service providers. This unique LTE router combines GCT's highly integrated LTE chip, GDM7243, with Direct Beam's patented advanced software algorithms and technology. With this revolutionary technology, the LTE router's coverage and speed are up to ten times higher than any other router available presently. In addition, the device automatically performs self-beams steering adjustments when changes in the RF environment occur, therefore maximizing the best link performance at all times.

Ecrio Inc. and GCT Semiconductor Inc. Extend their Partnership to Integrate Ecrio FlexIMS Based VoLTE on GCT's 4G LTE Chipsets

Ecrio Inc. and GCT Semiconductor Inc. extend their partnership to integrate Ecrio FlexIMS based VoLTE on GCT's 4G LTE Chipsets. GCT's LTE solution, GDM7243, combines RF and baseband to offer a highly integrated chip, optimized to ensure high performance and lower power consumption to increase battery life. GCT's chip delivers embedded VoLTE for devices such as smartphones, allowing ODMs to rapidly accelerate their VoLTE rollout. Ecrio FlexIMS technology allows for the broadest coverage of real time communication end points (including smartphones, smartTVs, computers, CPE). It was designed to enable IMS services functions to be distributed between the modem processor and application/network processors. RCS or video calling functions can be incrementally integrated on an application or network processor to add to VoLTE functionality implemented in the Modem Processor.

GCT Semiconductor's Verizon-Certified 4G Lte Single-Chip Powers the New 4G Lte Ellipsis Jetpack from Verizon Wireless

GCT Semiconductor announced that its Verizon-certified 4G LTE single-chip powers the new 4G LTE Ellipsis JetPack from Verizon Wireless. This new mobile device is the first 4G LTE single-mode hotspot. LTE single-mode is the ideal choice for devices like this one that are delivering wireless data such as tablets and laptops. For device makers the real advantage is that LTE single-mode reduces design complexity, cost and size; therefore accelerating time-to-market and also simplifying the certification process with operators.
