Back in 1995, our researchers envisioned a ‘wireless cord’ that would be both affordable and energy efficient. After three years of extensive research, Bluetooth was released to the world, changing mobile connectivity and music listening forever.

We did our research and released the LTE standard in 2008, enabling you to play games, watch videos and surf the web on-the-go.
