5Barz International, Inc. (BARZ) Conquers the Wireless Dead Zone

DreamTeamGroup Blog | June 26, 2014

There is nothing more annoying to a cell phone user than ending up in a location where one has a consistently weak signal leading to barely audible conversations and continuously dropped calls. A geography that includes hills, mountains, and valleys or any number of certain physical structures can all significantly impact a cellular phone’s full network coverage. 5Barz International Inc. conquers this wireless dead zone. The company incorporates multiple patented technologies to create a highly engineered, single-piece, plug and play device called 5Barz Network Extender that strengthens weak cellular signals to deliver high quality signals for voice, data and video reception on cell phones and other cellular equipped devices.

One current class of products in the market designed to improve poor cell reception involves what are called repeaters, also called cell phone boosters, which depend on at least a weak cell tower signal to amplify and rebroadcast. Many repeaters have multiple parts, starting with an antenna that you place as close as possible to the strongest cell tower signal, which is typically found near a window or even outdoors or on the roof. The antenna transmits signals over a cable connected to an amplifier, which boosts the signal and retransmits it indoors. However, this lacks portability as one has to deal with an external antenna and an extension of coaxial cable. Repeater kits can be purchased at specialty electronics retailers for prices that range anywhere from $150 to $600.

The other main technology to boost cell phone signals is a class of products referred to as femtocells. Femtocells connect directly into a broadband Internet access port, and so the mobile phone carrier is now requiring the broadband carrier to provide good service. As that is not always the case, there may be degradation of quality. Also, a femtocell can only be used at the address where it is registered. To enforce that restriction, the FCC stipulates that all femtocells must be equipped with GPS receivers, and that they either must be placed close enough to a window to receive GPS signals directly or must be connected to a GPS antenna that can pick up the signals. Many U.S. wireless services offer their own femtocell based network extenders at an initial price plus a monthly subscription fee. As a result, critics complain about having to pay for a service that essentially delivers what the wireless network is supposed to have provided all along.

T-Mobile has a slightly different approach in that phones that support Wi-Fi calling use what is referred to as Unified Mobile Access (UMA) technology to route calls over Wi-Fi hotspots. T-Mobile notes that this helps with calls made through any hotspot that its phones can access, and not just at a single location. Like the femtocell technology based products, this will not work for phones from other carriers.

5Barz International’s Network Extender is the size of a paperback book, doesn’t have the messy cable and antenna of repeaters, doesn’t require handoff to the Internet, and is fully portable. The product has a compact, fully integrated antenna which is used for both outgoing and incoming signals. Such compact antenna configurations could lead to a parasitic feedback which leads to a noisy signal and echo. 5Barz International’s patented smart signal processing technology achieves echo cancellation. The 5Barz International Network Extender supports all radio frequencies and spectrums, and currently supports multiple bands including 2G and 3G. 5Barz is expected to have their product support 4G cellular within the next 6 months.

5Barz International, Inc. has recently announced a partnership with the global supply chain management company, Flextronics, a world-class iconic manufacturer for high volume production, allowing the company to extend their reach and connect with more customers and channels in several regions. As more of our communication and media consumption shifts to mobile networks, people will demand strong cell phone signals to be able to deliver those services. Cisco Systems this week predicted that in 2018 there will be nearly three networked devices per person on Earth and mobile devices will generate more than 60% of Internet traffic. 5Barz International Inc. is well positioned to take advantage of this trend.

Shareholders Letter May 28, 2014

Dear Shareholders,

In conjunction with the recent filing of our 1st quarter financials I would like to take this opportunity to give you an update on our progress as we begin  commercialization of our 5Barz Network Extender device.  As most of you know we officially launched the 5Barz Network Extender on February 25th in Barcelona during the Mobile World Congress.  The response by the wireless industry was extremely positive and confirmed our belief that the industry is looking for a solution to improve coverage in poor coverage areas within their networks.  The following details the steps we are taking to commercialize the 5Barz Network Extender.

January / February = Pre-Barcelona / Mobile World Congress

We spent the first two months of the quarter largely focused on finalizing the technology development in preparation for our official product launch during  Mobile World Congress, the largest conference in all of Telecom annually.  On February 25th, we held an invitation only event at the Majestic Hotel in Barcelona, Spain which was well attended by industry luminaries, executives, investors and the press from around the world.  Our presentation, which was mc’ed by a top executive from Telecom Italia, started with Gil Amelio, our Chairman, giving a wonderful opening speech about 5Barz potential to “change the world of telecom and mobile,” what we now refer to as the “I believe” speech.  I had the privilege to follow Gil and unveiled the 5Barz Network Extender then introduced Naresh Soni, our CTO, who highlighted the incredible leaps forward made by the company in its technology and product development.  You can visit our website at www.5barz.com to watch a video of the presentation in its entirety.  Since Barcelona we have been preparing to deliver 5Barz Network Extender devices to our collaboration partner for testing and qualification on their network.  We expect to complete delivery within the next couple of weeks.  We will issue a press release upon shipping devices to our collaboration partner.

March / April / May = Post Barcelona

While Barcelona proved to be a watershed moment for 5Barz, the ten weeks that have followed have proven to be as equally, if not more, important to the growth and success of our company. Due to the overwhelming response from the Barcelona event, many market opportunities have become available to us in various regions around the world.  As such, during the next quarter we intend to begin shipping 5Barz Network Extender devices, for initial testing, to multiple network carriers, in four different market regions.  Our focus since Barcelona has been working in each of the four regions simultaneously.  They include Latin America (LATAM), India, Africa and here in the United States.  Some further detail is provided below:

  • LATAM, for the moment, is our most mature regional opportunity.  We have been working directly with the carriers in the region for several years and have built a deep knowledge base and strong contacts all of which will be necessary for us to execute our business plan in the LATAM region.  We look forward to the delivery of devices to the network carriers in the immediate future;
  • India is the second largest, by population, market in the world.  Naresh and I recently visited Bangalore, Mumbai as well as Delhi to set up our local business development team as well as meet with many of the carriers, key executives, and begin the process of building our Indian market business plan.  In short we found India’s mobile market is still growing and maturing though the network infrastructure has seemingly not caught up to the growing demand, hence, increasing congestion significantly as well as poor coverage in many areas of India.  These are ideal market conditions for the 5Barz Network Extender.
  • Africa is yet another incredible opportunity for us.  We have initiated our business development efforts in Africa and have met with all of the major carriers.  Africa is currently the fastest growing mobile market in the world and given the similar infrastructure conditions as India is a market greatly in need of our solution.
  • The United States.  The US is our home market where we have the most intimate understanding of the nuances and issues the industry faces.  We have met with key executives at the two largest carriers, and both are eager to begin testing the 5Barz Network Extender on their networks.  Given our contacts, access and current management team the US market opportunity is relatively easy for us to penetrate but requires that the 4G version of our technology be ready for adoption which we expect to deliver in the third quarter of this year.

As you can see we have a lot going on in many different time zones.  Since our product launch in Barcelona I am very pleased with the speed at which we are executing on our business plan and strategy.  To that end, we recently announced a manufacturing partnership with Flextronics, whom we consider to be the number one manufacturer of consumer electronic products in the world.  The Flextronics deal along with the many carriers around the world who are eagerly awaiting the 5Barz Network Extender to begin testing and qualification on their respective networks shows undoubtedly, that our product and technology solution has the potential to be the answer the industry has been looking for in the last mile of wireless connectivity.

While we have initiated business development activities in the four market regions detailed above, we continue to attract interest from telco’s in virtually every market region in the world.  And over the next several months we will begin our business development efforts in those markets as we expand operations.  In fact, the focus for the next quarter is about setting up our infrastructure in the four markets detailed above and delivering the 5Barz Network extender devices for testing and qualification to the network engineers.  This will include hiring executives with regional knowledge that will work with our telco partners in designing and implementing product rollout strategies and ultimately securing purchase orders.  In our opinion it is crucial that we establish the necessary  infrastructure in our market regions so that we can fully develop and support our customers as our product is deployed and implemented by the telco networks around the world.  Only until we have successfully set up our infrastructure and delivered devices for testing to the network engineers can we begin to accurately forecast sales volumes.  Regarding our shipment of 1,000 devices to Mexico we experienced unforeseen delays in the importation process as well as incurring substantial costs in handling and import duties.  We are working with our customer to complete the sale and expect a successful resolution in the immediate future.  Lastly, now that we are entering into commercialization we anticipate we will have a more steady flow of business development that will enable us to communicate to our shareholders on a more frequent basis.  In closing I want to thank you all for your continued support and interest in our company.

Sincerely,

Daniel Bland

CEO
