Kinson Chan, founder and CEO of Esix discusses their innovative Dual bonded 4G and 5G router technology. The device stands out due to its numerous antennas, which serve the purpose of ensuring stability, especially for industrial applications. The device houses two SIM cards and modems, with two antennas dedicated to each for redundancy and backup purposes.

Kinson Chan explains that they’ve deployed this technology in various ports, including Tenin and Shenzhen, emphasizing its reliability, given the high stakes involved in these operations. The company’s focus on providing a stable and cost-effective solution has made them a preferred choice for such critical applications.

In addition to their Dual 4G router, Kinson Chan mentions their 5G version, which can provide enhanced performance in areas with 5G coverage. This has proven beneficial in locations like Hong Kong, where 90% of the city is covered by 5G networks. They also touch on their satellite MX device, which is similar to the Dual 4G but not waterproof, and serves various industrial purposes.

Kinson Chan goes on to discuss the significant advantages of 5G, including its expanded bandwidth, low latency, and the ability to support critical applications, such as remote control of machines and even cranes. The interview touches on the impact of 5G on signal quality and interference, highlighting the unique features of 5G frequencies.

The conversation delves into the potential collaboration between their technology and satellite networks, which could be particularly useful for data transfer on ships. The adaptability to switch from satellite to 5G when nearing a port offers a cost-effective solution for these maritime operations.

As the interview progresses, Kinson Chan discusses the company’s global presence, with a strong foothold in Asia, but ambitions to expand to other regions. Their key competitor in the import market is Huawei, with whom they have had several encounters. However, Kinson Chan is confident that their technology distinguishes them in the commercial world, citing a partnership with 7-Eleven as an example.

The discussion touches on the chipset used in their modems, Qualcomm, which has a strong global reputation for its 4G and 5G solutions. Kinson Chan emphasizes that Qualcomm’s comprehensive chipset range aligns well with their product offerings.

Overall, this interview sheds light on the innovative technology developed by Esix and its potential to revolutionize connectivity in critical industries and beyond.
