  • Hello Guys,
    Ublox acquired 4M wireless last year. 4M wireless has one of the advanced market leading LTE/LTE-A protocol stack. Thats why Ublox acquired it. We have been working since 2006-7 on protocol stack.
    I wish, and i Wish again, that such technology licensing issues are resolved in Pakistan asap and we can facilitate our home first with such innovative technologies. Why not Pakistan first?? After all the stack is purely developed here by Pakistani developers.
