MAUI, Hawaii--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Inseego Corp. (Nasdaq: INSG), pioneering 5G and intelligent IoT device-to-cloud solutions, and Verizon, the first in the world to launch a commercial 5G network, will unveil MiFi® 5G NR mobile broadband technology on Dec. 4 at the Qualcomm Snapdragon Technology Summit in Maui. The two companies will conduct a live virtual reality telemedicine demonstration in partnership with Columbia University using an Inseego mobile hotspot device, powered by the Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 855 Mobile Platform and Snapdragon X50 5G modem and antenna modules with integrated RF transceiver, RF front-end and antenna elements, running on Verizon’s 5G NR mobile network deployed at the event venue. The device also offers powerful next generation Wi-Fi performance using the Qualcomm® Wi-Fi 6-ready mobile solution. The Inseego mobile hotspot launches on the Verizon network in 2019.
“Inseego is separating hype from reality by bringing advanced 5G NR mobile technology to life through a live VR-enabled healthcare application in Maui, powered by patented 5G MiFi® technology,” said Inseego Chairman and CEO, Dan Mondor. “Exceptional speed and low latency connectivity that mission-critical use cases require are being demonstrated in a real-world scenario, running on a live Verizon 5G network. This milestone reflects the impact that 5G NR will have on everyday life. We’re thrilled to show the way forward by making 5G real and more importantly, we want to demonstrate the power of 5G that will benefit society.”
Brian Higgins, vice president, device and consumer product marketing for Verizon, concurs. “An important part of making 5G a reality is collaborating with other technology leaders to advance the technology and to put it in the hands of consumers and businesses,” said Higgins. “The new Inseego 5G hotspot device – a Verizon exclusive when it becomes available in 2019 – will give our customers another way to access the super high speeds and ultra-low latency of 5G on their mobile devices and change the ways they live, work and play.”
