Quotes from IoT Media Interview in China
BEIJING, Nov.29th, 2017 – Borqs Technology Inc. held a group media interview at Borqs headquarters in Beijing where executive vice president and president of international business, George Thangadurai, delivered a speech about Borqs introducing solutions, products, partnerships and business models to the assembled media.
Quotes from the event:
There are many GPS positioning tracker products on the market, but to be considered a user-friendly product, it should contain numerous features, including capabilities to be able to locate network connections and have an extended battery life. Borqs’ trackers have the capability to connect to mobile networks, IoT, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth all with the touch of a button and allow for location reporting as well as provide cloud platforms for the data generated by the tracker. The trackers can also be set to a safety range—once it is out of the range, its monitor will receive a warning and the location. They can also set off warning flashes to alert others the kid, elder or pet is lost. If any good Samaritan clicks on the tracker, it will automatically send a phone call to the monitor.
Smaller companies are unable to provide such sophisticated software solutions as Borqs. For example, they may need long time to secure network certification. But for Borqs, based on strong Boss system and open SDK platform by their MVNO united corporation, there are less obstacles to accommodate a complete set of services, eliminating the tedious operational processes.
