TCL Communication introduces its fastest LTE mobile broadband hotspots

TCL Communication has unveiled its fastest LTE mobile broadband devices with the introduction of the Alcatel LINKZONE CAT12 and LINKZONE CAT7. Featuring lightweight and portable designs, along with significantly improved LTE speeds and battery life, this new evolution in Alcatel’s mobile hotspot series will connect customers to their work, loved ones, and the rest of the world quickly and easily.

“We live in a highly connected world where access to reliable Internet is essential to our everyday lives no matter where we live or where the road takes us,” said Christian Gatti, Global President Alcatel Business Division and Executive Vice President TCL Communication. “It’s crucial that we have reliable data access that enables us to communicate and interact with everyone, at all times and in all places, and our all-new LINKZONE devices provide the connectivity necessary to make that happen.”

Alcatel’s fastest 4G LTE-enabled mobile Wi-Fi device to date, the Alcatel LINKZONE CAT12 supports maximum download speeds of up to 600Mbps and upload speeds of up to 100Mbps using 3-channel carrier aggregation. It’s also one of the smallest hotspots available on the market, despite having a massive 4300mAh battery that delivers 15 straight hours of working battery life before you need to recharge it, or up to 300 hours standby time with the device’s dual-band WiFi a/b/g/n/ac turned on. The LINKZONE CAT12 comes with a built-in power bank function, making it also possible to charge your other mobile devices.

Additionally, the Alcatel LINKZONE CAT7 achieves maximum 4G LTE download speeds of up to 300Mbps and upload speeds of up to 100Mbps using 2-channel Carrier Aggregation, and is rated to get 8 hours of battery life so you can be productive through an entire workday. Weighing 85g and measuring 13.3mm thin, the LINKZONE CAT7 is incredibly light and portable, making it very easy to throw in your pocket or bag without having to worry about losing out on connectivity.

The Alcatel LINKZONE CAT12 and Alcatel LINKZONE CAT7 will be available in select regions around the world starting later this year.

GaN’s Ground-Floor Opportunity
The electronics industry has a major role to play in helping to save energy, by enabling better equipment and new ways of working and living that that are more efficient and environmentally friendly. Maintaining the pace of technological progress is key, but improvements become both smaller and harder to achieve as each technology matures. We can see this trend in the development of power semiconductors, as device designers seek more complex and expensive ways to reduce switching energy and RDS(ON) against silicon’s natural limitations.
