In the nineties, the Internet industry had the explosive power to rain down money in Korea. Being the pathfinders for the mobile industry was like leaving Santa a glass of milk and some cookies on the mantle .
Once dreamers now had become mobile leaders. This goes the same for overseas. "When Lars Magnus Ericsson started his company in 1876, he could not have realized what the future would hold. Yet his foresight has led to us being at the forefront of the industry since the dawn of telecommunication," Vice President of Ericsson Korea, Joe Constantine said. CEO Jeong Jeong-ki of Mobile Leader Co. Ltd. shares a similar note. When he sat down on the desk as an employee at Samsung SDS before this millennium, he had no idea he will one day be the head of a mobile solutions company that is mostly known for its integrated PC Sync software for mobile devices.
Make it Mobile
"The PC market has moved from the desktop to the laptop, notebook, and netbook, with portable computers now accounting for most PC sales. And customers want good connections. But success of the iPhone and other smartphones shows how connecting to broadband opens up a new business ecosystem. We believe that this is the right time to globalize the software, and the mobile era cries for improvement in spectrum efficiency, taking it to the a new level using Long Term Evolution,"said CEO Jeong Jeong-ki.
Machines now must be able to talk to each other. Sectors such as health care, transport and utilities are all seeing how they can benefit from connectivity. With PC users now going mobile, the users are consuming Gigabytes of capacity every month. Mobile Leader Co. Ltd. started as a modest company in 2000 and developed a wired and wireless interoperable real-time messaging solution to supply it to Korea's three major mobile communication operators. Since the very first day of his career, CEO Jeong Jeong-ki has chosen the narrow road each time he was positioned to make tough choices. The one that shows vision, the one that can go long run- has always been the primary concern of him, and that made his company to have the priority in developing core technologies. Today, Mobile Leader's core solutions and technologies are partners of many well-known mobile companies.
