Remote Desktop Software AnyDesk Partners with HTC to Provide Global 5G Smart Hub.
While unexpected, this collaboration was a logical one. As one of the 50 fastest-growing businesses in Germany, AnyDesk has made its mark globally with its proprietary remote access software. Recognizing AnyDesk’s clear advantages in speed, power, and versatility, HTC—a global innovator in smart mobile devices and VR technology—joined forces with the German firm to deliver a product with the ability to alter the landscape of mobile connectivity. Rolled out earlier this year, the HTC 5G Hub has been dubbed the world’s first 5G smart hub. The Android-based HTC 5G Hub comes pre-installed with AnyDesk, and includes built-in Wi-Fi, remote-control functionality, Google Play Store, touch interface, and tons of storage.
Founded just five years ago, AnyDesk offers its software in 28 languages, making it ideal for pre-installation on the groundbreaking HTC 5G Hub, as well as all other HTC Android-based smart phones. “AnyDesk really is a new kind of remote access software,” AnyDesk Founder and CEO Philipp Weiser explains. AnyDesk stunned the industry in July, announcing its 100 millionth download, with an estimated 7 million users added each month.
According to Weiser, HTC’s technology provides key features that make the HTC 5G Hub a game-changer, including the ability to provide a virtually latency-free solution, together with next-level security, and a longlasting battery (7,660 mAh). The HTC 5G Hub is designed for high-speed mobility with the next-generation business environment in mind, with very real applications for the entertainment and gaming industries as well. With the power of AnyDesk, the HTC 5G Hub provides hotspots (2) that can support up to 20 devices, enabling users to access its remote-control features anytime, anywhere, from any platform. Its flexible configuration also allows for corporate VPN. Loaded with smart functionality, it is possible to create a wireless office using the HTC 5G Hub, including connecting printers, computers, phones, and any other device. The HTC 5G Hub offers unmatched ease of use that also applies to home environments, facilitating smooth streaming of 4K video and low-latency gaming.
The HTC 5G Hub was recently named among the “Best 5G Hotspots, 2019” by AndroidCentral (AC). AC’s review of the hub boldly states: “With a 5-inch 720p touchscreen and Android 9 support, this hub evolves from a backup connection to a complete internet solution.” (See https://www.androidcentral.com/best-5g-hotspots).
The pre-installation of AnyDesk and its remote-control plugin marks the first-ever deep integration of this technology with a global supplier. But Weiser says this collaboration is the first of many AnyDesk innovations to watch for in the next year. In fact, Weiser revealed AnyDesk will offer a full suite of products based on its next-level technology in the near future. Overall, we have the mindset that good is not good enough,” Weiser remarks. “We always aim for supreme excellence.”
