KT and CSL deploy 5G and wifi 6 mobile hotspots

Korea Telecom (KT) and Hong Kong’s CSL have deployed 5G and wifi 6 mobile hotspots using Linksys 5G mobile hotspot powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon X55 5G Modem-RF System and Qualcomm FastConnect 6800 mobile connectivity system.

Harnessing 5G and Wi-Fi 6 for fast and seamless connectivity, the light and thin 5G mobile hotspot includes a USB-C port with Qualcomm Quick Charge technology, ensuring devices are powered up and optimally connected at home or on-the-go. It utilises the Wi-Fi 6 standard and dual-band Wi-Fi (802.11ax) technologies. With USB tethering that supports large-capacity LTE high-speed data, users can stay connected regardless of the environment.

“Mobile hotspots are essential to use fast, seamless wireless networks in a variety of environments, enabling increased connectivity, mobility and productivity across many use cases. Linksys is excited to launch the first 5G mobile hotspot supporting 5G and Wi-Fi 6 in Korea with KT and Hong Kong with CSL,” said LC Wu, Chief Operating Officer of Beklin International’s Connected Home Division (Linksys, Wemo, Phyn).

“We’re delighted to collaborate with Linksys to deliver a 5G Mobile Hotspot powered by the Snapdragon X55 5G Modem-RF System along with support for our FastConnect 6800. Together, 5G and Wi-Fi 6 can better support the remote workforce and bolster overall network connectivity with speed, reliability and flexibility to transform how the world connects,” said Gautam Sheoran, Senior Director of Product Management at Qualcomm Technologies.
