Promwad partners with Asian chip vendors to offer cost-effective electronic designs in Europe

VILNIUS, Lithuania, 2017-Aug-04 — /REAL TIME PRESS RELEASE/ — Promwad Electronics Design House has partnered with leading technological fabless companies in China and Southeast Asia to offer its clients cost-effective electronics product development from the center of Europe and to manufacture any batch size of new devices with priority tech support.

Promwad was one of only a few design houses in the EMEA region authorized by Allwinner, one of the leading Chinese chip manufacturers. Promwad’s engineers design electronics based upon Allwinner components and provide tech support during the entire life cycle of the designed devices:

  • tablet PCs, multimedia and portable devices based on Allwinner SoC A series;
  • TV set-top boxes with OTT and IPTV based on Allwinner SoC H series;
  • dash cameras, video cameras and action cameras based on Allwinner SoC V series;
  • onboard multimedia systems for vehicles based on Allwinner SoC T series.

Allwinner was founded ten years ago; its headquarters are based in Zhuhai, Guangdong, China. In 2013 and 2014 this chip vendor was the world’s largest supplier of application processors for Android tablets.

Also Promwad became an official partner of Telink, Shanghai, and has significantly expanded its expertise in the fields of Bluetooth and BLE. This chip vendor specializes in Bluetooth and Zigbee for IoT and wearable electronics, remote controls, smart lighting and smart toys.

The engineers of Promwad have a lot of experience with the most popular chipsets of other vendors: TI CC265x, Silabs EFR32 Blue Gecko, Nordic nRF, Qualcomm/CSR10xx, and Dialog DA1458x. And now Telink TLSR826x BLE SoC has been added to this list; this system on chip has low power consumption, supports Zigbee, 6LoWPAN/Thread, and HomeKit.

Promwad maintains cooperation with the company Realtek from Taiwan and uses its chips to design network equipment from CPE – routers, gateways, WiFi hotspots to operators-side telecom equipment such as unmanaged and managed switches.

“Today the center of the semiconductor industry’s innovations and manufacture is shifting to Asia. Traditional chip vendors from the USA and Europe face growing competition from this region. Our customers demand functional and cost effective solutions to be designed at closer location such as Belarus or Lithuania and manufactured in Asia, that’s why establishing close links with Asian chip makers is a natural step for us,” says Ivan Kuten, the Business Developer of Promwad. “Namely by using such cooperation we cover our most growing capabilities in tablets, consumer gadgets, STB, CPE and multimedia devices. Now our customers in the EU and North America can create new hi-tech devices with controlled costs, tech support in English and manufacturing facilities in Europe or Asia.”

Vivier Chief Executive, Luigi Wewege Announces New Book: The Digital Banking Revolution

AUCKLAND, NEW ZEALAND and COLUMBIA, SOUTH CAROLINA and MADRID, SPAIN, 2016-Dec-21 — /EPR Network/ — Luigi Wewege’s latest book, The Digital Banking Revolution, shares his inside perspective on how financial technology companies are rapidly transforming the traditional retail banking industry through disruptive innovation.

In The Digital Banking Revolution, Wewege provides a look at how over the past decade financial service innovations have contributed to a completely new way in which customers are able to bank, threatening the status quo of traditional retail banks, and redefining a banking model which has been in place for generations.

Luigi’s book presents the ways these new technological advancements have facilitated the rapid emergence of digital banking firms and FinTech companies, leading to established banks being forced to swiftly increase their pace of digital adoption to stay relevant, and stop mass client attrition to these agile financial start-ups.

“These threats come at an inopportune time for banks due to mature markets currently experiencing stagnant growth. This coupled with decreasing profit margins due to the competitive pricing of new entrants, and financial customer loyalty becoming ever increasingly more tenuous,” said Wewege.

Supported by numerous illustrations, the book spans a diverse range of topics from big data analytics and mobile payments to the evolving behaviors of financial consumers. The Digital Banking Revolution concludes with Luigi providing his predictions in the book’s final chapter, which is titled The Future of Banking. In this chapter, he outlines how he believes financial services are likely to evolve, and be conducted going forward.

The book is currently available for purchase online at Amazon.com in Kindle and paperback versions, as well as being offered via a number of other major online booksellers. To learn more about the author – Luigi Wewege and his new book, The Digital Banking Revolution, please visit: www.digitalbankingrevolution.com.

ABOUT LUIGI WEWEGE
Luigi is the President and CEO of Vivier Group, a multinational financial group of companies, providing its services worldwide through representation in jurisdictions across Africa, Asia, Oceania, Europe and South America. Outside of Vivier he serves as the Non-executive Chairman of Nikau Global an international trade and development firm, as Partner/Director of Palmetto Global Ventures a bespoke financial management consultancy firm, and is an invited member of Boston, Massachusetts based non-profit the Young Entrepreneur Council.

WorldSIM launches a new international SIM card that ends roaming charges for travellers worldwide

LONDON, March 24, 2016 — /EPR NETWORK/ — Finally the extortionate roaming charges travellers face when they go abroad has become a thing of the past. Roaming experts, WorldSIM have launched a new smart international SIM card that allows international travellers to pay the same rates as locals when they travel overseas. Importantly, users can also roam on their existing number with the use of WorldSIM’s virtual phone number service.

In Canada and Mexico, a call back to the US is just 22 cents and it’s free to receive calls. What’s really impressive is that WorldSIM offers international travellers going further afield very low rates as well. In Europe data rates start from 15 cents per MB and so do calls. Incoming calls are free in 95 of the most popular international destinations. The service remains a prepaid service and no subscriptions are required. Just recharge when you need more credit.

The new WorldSIM international sim card also offers roaming in more destinations than most operators worldwide. With their new release sim card, 25 new roaming destinations have been added bringing the total to 195 roaming countries. This means travellers can now stay connected for less in more exotic locations like Belize and the Bolivia.

Very soon, WorldSIM will also be launching global bundles, in many destinations travellers will be able to get 1GB of data and unlimited calls for just $30.

This new travel SIM card offers billing in multiple currencies and the technology has been improved to allow the sim to connect automatically to the operators with the best rates and coverage. The roaming SIM works in any unlocked handset and comes triple punched so it fits into all cell phones and tablets.

Arif Reza, CEO at WorldSIM commented “The technology inside our new SIM card is more advanced than ever giving users a simple solution that makes a big difference. With our new line of smart watch phones and WiFi devices you don’t even need to switch SIM cards when you travel.”

With the vacation season approaching thousands of travellers will be hit with unexpected roaming bills and they aren’t the only ones that suffer. Small businesses pay on average $252 per device for bill shock, while larger companies pay up to $395 per device*.
