LONDON, Oct. 27, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Born2Invest, a wholly-owned subsidiary of UK-based M6 Limited today started featuring 5BARz International Inc. (OTCQB: BARZ). Former Apple Chairman and CEO Gil Amelio believes he has found the opportunity of a lifetime. As the current Chairman of San Diego-based 5BARz International Inc., the team under his watch has developed a plug-and-play device that strengthens weak cellular signals. Marketed under the brand name 5BARz, the technology delivers high quality signals for voice, data and video reception on cell phones and other cellular equipped devices.
The iconic technology executive and investor believes that his involvement in a small company puts him right in the middle of a huge megatrend, with new and exciting technology that solves a fundamental problem. Amelio previously served as CEO and Chairman of National Semiconductor and President of Rockwell Communication Systems. He has a Ph.D. in physics and holds 17 patents.
At present, Amelio works hand-in-hand with 5BARz's chief executive Daniel Bland in laying out the company's business strategy. Additionally, Amelio speaks to telco executives on the company's behalf, leveraging his more than 20-year experience as a board member of the largest telco in the United States.
5BARz is well on its way towards creating serious market demand as it caters to an unanswered need in the market, according to Amelio. Recent market data shows that there are 6.8 billion mobile device users worldwide. However, this exponential growth in mobile use has taken its toll on the quality of available spectrum at most telecommunication firms, resulting in poor cellular signal, and eventually, customer attrition. Bain & Company's data reveals that the churn rate for most network operators sits at 2 percent to 2.5 percent monthly.
Speaking at 5BARz' official launch in Barcelona, Spain, Amelio looked backed on the reason why he decided to join the company's ranks. "How strongly do I believe in 5BARz? So strongly that I recently retired from my position as a director for AT&T after 18 years so that I can give a full measure of my time as chairman of 5BARz. I believe that 5BARz is a company with the potential to become one of the next legendary companies in communications technology," he said.
The 5BARz plug-and-play device eliminates the need for antennas, and can boost signal strength to up to 70 db.
