Fortesys Now Authorised Distributor For Ruckus Networks In Malaysia!

CommScope just appointed Fortesys as the sole authorised distributor for its Ruckus range of networking products spanning all segments across Malaysia! Here are the full details!

 

Fortesys | Ruckus : A Quick Primer

Established in 2011, Fortesys Distribution Sdn Bhd is a leading end-to-end networking solutions provider in Malaysia. In addition to providing digital networking solutions, they also provide training programs as well.

Headquartered in Sunnyvale, California, Ruckus is a world-renowned brand for wired and wireless networking equipment and software. Together with ARRIS, Ruckus is now now of CommScope – a major communications infrastructure company.

 

Fortesys Now Authorised Distributor For Ruckus Networks In Malaysia!

At a recent ceremony held at the Tropicana Golf Club, Petaling Jaya, Fortesys regional sales director Kevin Kuak (left in picture) shook hands with ARRIS Solutions Malaysia regional manager BK Choo representing the CommScope to finalise this partnership for Malaysia.

We sat down with both principals for a quick chat on this new partnership between Fortesys and CommScope.

According to Kuak, Fortesys would continue to deliver a wide range of advanced networking solutions for the Malaysian and regional markets.

“Our mission is to provide the most cost-effective and complete network solutions to meet all our customers’ business needs,” said Kuak, adding that Fortesys’ appointment as the authorised distributor for Ruckus was yet another milestone for the company.

“We are also fully committed to helping companies ‘future proof’ their businesses through state-of-the-art digital networking solutions, added Kuak.

Kuak also shared that Fortesys is today certified by many world class IT vendors, while providing high quality training for customers.

Meanwhile, Choo said that Ruckus had invented and patented various wireless voice, video, and data technologies, such as adaptive antenna arrays that extend signal range.

“Today, we are well known for our Wi-Fi branded products such as indoor and outdoor wireless access points and wireless controllers,” said Choo.

From a market segment perspective, this partnership bodes well for both parties as Ruckus has traditionally been strong in the hospitality and education segments, while Fortesys has various customers across GLCs (government-linked companies), banking and financial services and the public sector.

5 Ways How HUAWEI Smart Life Devices Boost Productivity!

HUAWEI Smart Life devices are more than just convenient, they can actually give you a big productivity boost at work!

Find out how to use these HUAWEI Smart Life devices to greatly improve your productivity at work!

 

5 Ways How HUAWEI Smart Life Devices Boost Productivity!

HUAWEI created the Smart Life ecosystem to deliver the life of future, both at home and at work.

Here are five ways to leverage HUAWEI Smart Life devices to greatly improve your productivity!

Tip #1 : Eliminate All Dead Zones!

Digital natives are no longer chained to their desks, and the modern office offers a variety of working and collaboration spaces for people to work more effectively.

The HUAWEI WiFi Q2 Pro is designed to offer fast, reliable WiFi connectivity indoors and outdoors, even for the largest workspace! Just add satellite units whenever you need greater reach, without messy cables or setting up!

Thanks to its seamless roaming capability and automatic channel optimisations – it will intelligently switch WiFi channels and hotspots to ensure you get the best possible connectivity, even as you move about!

All you have to do is focus on your work. No matter where you go, the Q2 Pro will ensure you have the best possible connectivity!

Tip #2 : Easy Transfers For Quick Work!

Smartphones are great because they are always connected to the Internet, but they are not always the best platform to do serious work.

That’s where the HUAWEI Multi-Screen Collaboration feature comes in – it lets you get work done on both the Matebook 13 laptop and the Mate 30 or Mate 30 Pro smartphone simultaneously!

And with One Tap to Share technology, you can easily transfer files between your smartphone and the laptop with a simple drag-and-drop motion! Now that is truly how things should work in the life of the future!

Tip #3 : Tune Out The Noise!

One of the biggest problems people face at work is noise. Whether it’s from your colleagues’ keyboards, or their chit-chats, noise can really be distracting and even stressful.

But thanks to the HUAWEI Freebuds 3, you can literally tune out the noise with its Active Noise Cancellation technology. And if you need to call someone in a noisy environment, its Bone Sensor picks up your voice for clear conversations!

Tip #4 : Stay Healthy!

It is important to stay healthy, to maximise your productivity. That’s why the HUAWEI WATCH GT 2 will remind you to stand up and move around, so you don’t sit down for hours on end.

It even monitors your stress levels and blood pressure, and suggest breathing exercises to calm you down and lower your stress levels!

Because it has a 14-day battery life, you should wear it to sleep, so it can help to monitor your sleep patterns, and ensure you stay healthy 24/7.

It is also important to take good care of your eyes. The HUAWEI Matebook 13 comes with an Eye Comfort Mode that is designed to protect your retina and avoid eyestrain. This lets you work in optimal comfort for as long as you like!

Tip #5 : Keep Your Hands Free!

One way to greatly improve productivity is to leverage the advanced capabilities of HUAWEI Smart Life devices to keep both of your hands free!

The HUAWEI WATCH GT 2 and the HUAWEI x Gentle Monster Eyewear let you make and receive calls, letting you continue working even as you talk.

In addition to letting you make and receive calls, the HUAWEI Freebuds 3 can recognise your speech, and activate the Smart Assistant app for hands-free capabilities.

Experience Life of the Future with HUAWEI Smart Life Devices!

HUAWEI is more than just a smartphone manufacturer. They have a veritable ecosystem of smart devices, which they call HUAWEI Smart Life.

Find out how to use these HUAWEI Smart Life devices to enjoy a life of the future!

 

Experience Life of the Future with HUAWEI Smart Life Devices!

Life like a box of chocolates – you never know what you are going to get!

Your flight may get delayed. An idyllic vacation may turn out to be an utter bore. Your boss may suddenly send some urgent work that needs your input.

But digital natives can now leverage HUAWEI Smart Life devices to tackle these challenges for a stress-free life of the future!

Recommended : 5 Ways How HUAWEI Smart Life Devices Boost Productivity!

Tip #1 : Stuck Somewhere? Transport Yourself Away!

If your flight or train ride gets delayed, or you are stuck in a long line, whip out your smartphone for some mobile gaming!

Stop fretting about the delay, and channel your frustrations into finishing off your virtual enemies!

It helps that HUAWEI smartphones are not only powerful gaming devices, they have long battery life for hours of mobile gaming!

In addition, the new HUAWEI Mate 30 Pro come with two virtual buttons on the edge of the screen – one on each side.

Use these buttons to gain an advantage over your opponents – move, scope, aim and shoot at the same time! Nothing beats stress more than winning a game!

Tip #2 : Staying Connected With Two Free Hands

The new HUAWEI x Gentle Monster Eyewear not only look great, they let you pick up calls and stay connected, and enjoy music on-the-go!

Best of all, you can do all that while keeping both hands free!

Tip #3 : Stay Healthy + Sweat It Out!

The life of the future does not mean getting stuck in faceless cubicles for hours on end. Being digitally connected means you get to break out of the office!

For digital natives, results matter more than physical presence. Take time off to sweat it out for a healthier and less stressful life!

Use the HUAWEI WATCH GT 2 to monitor your heart rate, and keep track of your jog or swim. It will help to keep you in tip-top shape!

Don’t forget to slip on the HUAWEI x Gentle Monster Eyewear so you can listen to music and chat with your friends, while you burn off the calories!

Tip #4 : Tune Out The Noise!

One of the biggest problems people face, whether at work or at play, is noise. It can really get on your nerves and ruin a great day.

But thanks to the HUAWEI Freebuds 3, you can literally tune out the noise with its Active Noise Cancellation technology. And if you need to call someone, its Bone Sensor picks up your voice for clear conversations!

Tip #5 : Easy Transfers For Quick Work!

Smartphones are great because they are always connected to the Internet, but it’s not always the best platform to do serious work.

That’s where the HUAWEI Multi-Screen Collaboration feature comes in – it lets you get work done on both the Matebook 13 laptop and the smartphone simultaneously!

And with One Tap to Share technology, you can easily transfer files between your smartphone and the laptop with a simple drag-and-drop motion! Now that is truly how things should work in the life of the future!

Tip #6 : Stay Connected Indoors + Outdoors!

Digital natives get agitated whenever we lose access to the Internet. So it is critical for many people that the WiFi connectivity should not only be fast, it should be stable and reliable.

The HUAWEI WiFi Q2 Pro is a great way of delivering fast, reliable WiFi connectivity indoors and outdoors, even through large buildings. Just add satellite units to extend coverage!

Best of all – it will intelligently switch WiFi channels and hotspots to ensure you get the best possible connectivity, even as you move about!

The HUAWEI WiFi Alliance Suspension Clarified! 2.0

HUAWEI cannot seem to catch a break. They have been temporarily suspended from the WiFi Alliance, thanks to the Trump ban. But what exactly does this HUAWEI WiFi Alliance suspension mean?

There is so much misunderstandings and false claims on the Internet, we thought we should clear up the confusion…

Updated @ 2019-05-31 : The WiFi Alliance quietly restored HUAWEI as a member. Seriously.

Originally posted @ 2019-05-26

 

The WiFi Alliance

The WiFi Alliance is a non-profit organisation that promotes and certifies Wi-Fi technology, and owns the Wi-Fi trademark.

Based in Austin, Texas, the Wi-Fi Alliance is made up of over 550 member companies, including Apple, Samsung, Intel, Qualcomm, Microsoft and of course, HUAWEI.

 

The HUAWEI WiFi Alliance Suspension

To comply with the US Department of Commerce listing of HUAWEI in the Entity List, the Wi-Fi Alliance has temporarily suspended HUAWEI’s participation in some of their activities.

Wi-Fi Alliance is fully complying with the recent U.S. Department of Commerce order without revoking Huawei Technologies membership.

Wi-Fi Alliance has temporarily restricted Huawei Technologies participation in Wi-Fi Alliance activities covered by the order.

 

Why Didn’t The WiFi Alliance Remove HUAWEI As A Member?

Unlike the SD Association, things are different with the WiFi Alliance, because HUAWEI has contributed significantly to the development of the latest Wi-Fi 6 standard.

Removing HUAWEI completely as a member could jeopardise the Wi-Fi 6 standard, as HUAWEI undoubtedly holds some key patents.

So the WiFi Alliance has to thread carefully… ostensibly complying with the Trump ban, while keeping HUAWEI within the alliance.

What Does This Mean For Consumers?

Now, stop listening to your friends who keep sharing scary messages about how your HUAWEI or HONOR smartphone will no longer have WiFi.

The WiFi on your HUAWEI or HONOR smartphone will continue to work normally. In fact, future HUAWEI and HONOR smartphones will still continue to have Wi-Fi capabilities!

What Does This Mean For HUAWEI?

Let us summarise what this means for HUAWEI, to clear up the confusion for everyone :

  • HUAWEI is still officially a member of the Wi-Fi Alliance.
  • HUAWEI can still make and sell products that use the Wi-Fi standards, including Wi-Fi 6.
  • HUAWEI can still use the Wi-Fi Certified trademark in their products.
  • HUAWEI is just restricted in what input they can have in future Wi-Fi standards.

This temporary Wi-Fi Alliance suspension has no short-term or even medium-term effect on HUAWEI because the upcoming Wi-Fi 6 standard has already been ratified.

What Happens If The HUAWEI WiFi Suspension Continues?

If Trump does not lift his ban, HUAWEI will have limited input into the next-generation Wi-Fi standard. This could lead to two possible outcomes :

  1. The Wi-Fi Alliance will have to avoid using HUAWEI technologies in the future Wi-Fi 7 standard.
  2. HUAWEI quits the Wi-Fi Alliance and forms its own competing Wi-Fi consortium with other companies.

Neither are particularly good for the development of better and faster wireless technologies. Alliances work better with more collaboration and cooperation, not less.

But it’s no secret – Donald Trump has never cared about alliances.

And HUAWEI Is Back In Again

Almost as quickly and quietly as the WiFi Alliance removed HUAWEI as a member, they restored HUAWEI’s membership around 29 May 2019.

There was no official explanation for both removing HUAWEI or restoring them, all in a matter of days.

2019 MSI GE75 + GE63 Raider Gaming Laptops With WiFi 6!

MSI just unveiled the 2019 MSI GE75 Raider and GE63 Raider RGB gaming laptops, and they all boast the latest WiFi 6 wireless connectivity! Here’s a primer on these two new MSI gaming laptops!

In addition to its gaming performance, gamers can also count on its WiFi 6 wireless connectivity to ensure maximum bandwidth and low latency for esports gaming.

However, reviewers have noted that the 2019 MSI GE75 Raider’s battery life is shorter than expected when not plugged in, and its webcam was below par of a laptop with such a price tag.

Well, the higher the price, the higher the expectation right?

The 2019 MSI GE63 Raider RGB

As the slightly lower price, the 2019 GE63 Raider RGB offers the same gaming performance in a smaller form factor, with a smaller 15.6-inch display.

According to reviewers, the downside to this particular model is that its screen is dim and its battery life quickly drains, especially if the RGB lights are turned on.
