Full duplex wireless communications using one antenna that allows transmit and receive signals at the same time, with 110dB of separation between the two.
A base station is currently in production with a range up to 20 miles which is a coverage of 1,250 square miles. This is 5 times more range and 25 times more coverage than existing systems, which reduces the cost to deploy and support wireless networks.
This is a hardware solution, not software – 1,000 time faster than other experimental systems with latency measured in picoseconds. This allows a much higher data throughput and better use of spectrum by sending and receiving at the same time.
Inexpensive to manufacture Customer Premises Equipment (CPE). One small hardware circuit with minimal power and CPU processing requirements; estimated 10 cents or less in production quantities. This reduces the cost and simplifies the integration into CPE.
The invention works with existing protocols and currently supports DOCSIS 3.0 chipset; could support LTE to allow different transmit and receive power levels. This provides for easy integration into wireless network environments for deployment and network management.
Network operators get a better use of spectrum with channels performing close together with higher data rates and both transmitting and receiving signals close together.
The technology allows for frequency agile devices with fixed intermediate frequency filters at a much lower cost than is currently available.
Existing devices (mobile phones, transceivers, etc.) can become full duplex devices, sending and receiving at the same time which would allow you to, for example, download a movie and talk at the same time.
Enhanced services with the ability to offer voice, data and broadcast services through each tower with a single antenna - extending range up to 25 times the area with higher power transmission or increased data rate.
The technology works with many existing standards and protocols protecting your current investment in infrastructure and network management tools. This new invention, tested and ready for use today (15 installations in place), is based upon the same principles of a related circuit developed over 50 years ago and deployed in millions of devices; this dramatically reduces the business and technology risk of the invention.
