23 June 2015, Amsterdam – ZTE, a leading global mobile device maker, announced today at the LTE World Summit 2015 the launch of a new 4G mobile hotspot in partnership with Uros. The ZTE Goodspeed 4G mobile hotspot MF900 is manufactured under a technology license from Uros and will offer Goodspeed mobile internet service for affordable international data roaming.
"We are excited to join forces with Uros to unveil this brand new roaming solution, which we believe busy international travelers will find incredibly handy," said Adam Zeng, CEO of ZTE Mobile Devices. "The manufacturing of the Goodspeed MF900 is already underway and we expect to see strong shipments for this product."
"Developing an innovative product like this with ZTE has been swift, and the end result is of the highest quality," said Tommi Uhari, CEO of Uros. "We believe that the performance, battery life and the overall ease of use of this new Goodspeed mobile hotspot will be recognized by our customers. We have once again succeeded in making global data roaming a bit more easier for the whole world."
The Goodspeed MF900 saves business travelers from racking up costly roaming fees with Goodspeed's affordable international data roaming service. The device is the world's first commercially available 4G hotspot that accommodates up to 10 SIM cards at once, and it provides private connectivity for up to 14 Wi-Fi connections and one USB connection simultaneously. The Goodspeed MF900 supports all mainstream global 4G frequencies (LTE FDD & LTE TDD), allowing end-users to connect to 4G networks whenever, wherever. Powering the device is a Qualcomm Gobi MDM9225 modem chipset, which offers downlink data rates of up to 150Mbps and uplink rates of up to 50Mbps.
The Goodspeed MF900's powerful 3200mAh battery lasts up to 12 hours on one charge, or seven days on standby mode, and can be fully charged in three hours. Despite its sizable battery, the Goodspeed MF900 weighs just 125 grams, making it the perfect lightweight hotspot option for those often on the road.
In terms of software, the Goodspeed MF900 comes with software-based encryption, giving security-conscious business users added peace of mind. Also, the device features a data monitoring and management function, allowing end-users to effectively manage their data on-the-go.
The ZTE Goodspeed 4G mobile hotspot MF900 will be available for purchase in July from Goodspeed direct sales channels, including Business Sales and official Goodspeed distributors, before general availability from goodspeed.io.
ZTE has been partnering with carriers across the globe since 2013 to deliver mobile devices for international roaming. Currently, ZTE offers two mobile hotspot products that support 3G and 4G roaming respectively. These products are used widely by business users worldwide and have been made available through partnerships with carriers such as Verizon, DoCoMo and Vodafone.
By year end 2014, ZTE had sold approximately 200 million mobile broadband products globally.
