How this tech firm improved cell and broadband networks globally

Gil Amelio, Chairman of the Board of 5BARz International, Inc, enthused, “The product is designed, manufactured and made to solve the fundamental last-mile connectivity challenges of India and other emerging markets.



Rising California-based technology firm 5BARz International (OTC: BARZ) has gained the leadership position in the network extender consumer market. Now, the company has set its sights on reshaping and redefining the wireless landscape with is recently launched a new product, the ROVR Wi-Fi router.

India, which will soon have a billion mobile subscribers, will be the first to experience the advantages of this fast, smart Wi-Fi router. 5BARz India Private Ltd., the Indian subsidiary of 5BARz International, will be rolling out 5 million ROVR devices across 11 cities in the nation which contains one of the largest, and continuously growing population in Asia.

Before the ROVR

5BARz’s flagship product, the network extender, revolutionized mobile connectivity with its ability to increase the cell signals of devices within a 4,000-mile radius. The power bars that indicate cellular connectivity strength can zoom up from a weakening one bar to the glowing maximum of five. With just the size of a man’s hand, the network extender is easily carried and can serve the user in areas where data and voice transmission are problematic. These include dead zones, remote towns, mountainous inns, and densely packed concrete buildings in the towering urban jungle.

The network extender has also proven to be the solution to Indian user’s perpetual problems about increasing call drops, poor internet infrastructure, and the absence of cellphone towers in people-packed centers. Leading Indian telecommunications such as Vodafone and Bharti Airtel providers have also partnered with 5BARz India to provide the plug-and-play device as added value  to millions of their subscribers.


If the network extender offers continuing connectivity to internet-challenged areas, the 5BARz ROVR heightens user experience through advanced features that enable its owner to customize its use. Users can determine the specific amount of bandwidth, speed, and data allowance that each device linked to the ROVR can use, in an effort to reduce cost, check the quality of internet use, and monitor productivity. They get an alert should their bandwidth usage reach its threshold and is about to exceed its allocated amount.

The ROVR likewise helps ensure the safety and security of the user’s connectivity through features like a 4-hour backup of uninterrupted power supply, and a storage device where the user and his community or family can keep their photos, videos, and music files.

ROVR deployment

A recent partnership between 5BARz India and one of the nation’s top internet service provider will see the deployment of the ROVR into a minimum of five million Indian households within the next five years. This is expected to escalate to 20 million households given 5BARz India’s strategy to roll out the device in major cities like Ahmedabad, Bangalore, Chennai, Hyderabad, Mumbai, and Pune. Emerging metros like Gurgaon, Kakinada, Navi Mumbai, Navsari, Powai, Surat, Thane, Vadodara, Vijayawada, and Visakhapatnam are next in line.

Gil Amelio, Chairman of the Board of 5BARz International, Inc, enthused, “The product is designed, manufactured and made to solve the fundamental last-mile connectivity challenges of India and other emerging markets. Technology innovation is at the heart of our business and the product roll out through our landmark ISP partnership is a major boost to its mass acceptance by India market. We are extremely confident of its potential to spur growth in not just India but other fast-growing markets including South Africa.”
