SEATTLE, June 26, 2013 — 5BARz International Inc. (OTCBB: BARZ), (Boerse- Berlin: O5B),(www.5BARz.com) (“5BARz” or “the Company”)
On February 20, 2013, the FCC issued a Report & Order on Signal Boosters which includes rules, policies and specific technical features to protect against interference that may harm the operator’s network. The FCC stated in that report, “We find that these technical safeguards are vital to the development of signal boosters that significantly expand coverage for consumers and do not harm wireless networks. The record reflects that some existing boosters, particularly those that do not provide built-in safeguards, have caused substantial interference to both commercial and public safety.”
The CEO of 5Barz International Inc., Mr. Daniel Bland, explained that it is important to recognize that the patents issued to 5Barz International, Inc. on August 23, 2011 and September 27, 2011, in conjunction with the other technologies, represent a patented system and method for the design of a sophisticated network extender, which incorporates all of the “Network Protection Standard Requirements” set out in the FCC proceeding. 5BARz network extenders provide programmable frequency selection which enables boosting signals designated by a given operator, and will shut down automatically or adjust gains so that they do not cause harmful interference. Furthermore, the technology provides a methodology through which that network extender is incorporated into a small form factor, with “Zero-Touch”, plug and play capability without the need for an external antennae. These technical developments commenced in 5BARz subsidiary back in 2007. Since that time the Company has made significant investment to achieve the technological advances required to make it user and operator network friendly. The Company’s prototype technology and products are currently being presented to global wireless network operators with very positive response
Mr. Bland concluded “The Company was looking forward to the FCC ruling, providing direction for the cellular booster industry in the US. After two years we have clear regulations, which are fully consistent with the development path followed by the engineering at 5BARz. This technology meets the much needed connectivity void existing in cellular networks today, empowering consumers to achieve seamless connectivity.”
