Gopher Protocol Starts Its MESH System PHASE I Testing Ahead of Schedule

San Diego, CA, Dec. 19, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NEWMEDIAWIRE -- Gopher Protocol Inc. (OTCQB: GOPH) ("Gopher”), a company specializing in the development of Internet of Things (IoT) and Artificial Intelligence enabled mobile technologies, including a global mesh network technology platform for both mobile and fixed solutions, announced today it started its MESH system PHASE I Testing earlier than scheduled.

Gopher’s Gateway and Node hardware platforms are going through first stage of system test. In this stage, transmission (Tx) and Receiving (Rx) functionalities are tested. Also being tested is the system's firmware (FW) functionality. The first phase of testing includes key architecture capabilities, such as time division algorithm, frequencies ranges and responses, Nodes & Gateways communication and more. Further FW related essential functionalities are being tested, among them RTC (Real-Time-Clock) - GPS synchronization, BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy), Wi-Fi and Ethernet port communication. In addition, tests included transmitting/receiving power outputs and gains. Preliminary results have shown high performance. Gopher Protocol will continue its testing as planned expected to go into active field testing in January 2019.

"We are glad to announce that we started our system testing ahead of schedule. We are testing the Gateway and Node operations, starting with the most important key features. The testing results were satisfactory and with high performance. We were glad to see that the overall system architecture works as designed and plan to continue further with robust testing stages. In the next few weeks we plan to create further test scenarios, including a server backend program and a test mobile app for global system demonstration and functionality testing. We plan to be in full field testing of the entire system during January of 2019," stated Danny Rittman, Gopher CTO.
