Conventional cell towers transmit signals that carefully avoid interfering with each other, creating large cells, 50m to 5km in size.
All mobile devices, perhaps thousands, share a cell, each getting a fraction of the spectrum capacity.
pWave™ radios transmit signals that deliberately interfere with each other, combining to synthesize tiny pCells, each just one cm in size.
Every mobile device has its own pCell™, a “personal cell,” each getting the full spectrum capacity.
Cell service is okay when there are few users.
pCell service is full speed no matter how many users.
Cell service slows to a crawl when there are many users.
pCell service is full speed even with many users.
pCell is a pure Edge Software-defined Radio in a C-RAN
pCell data center servers scale linearly with capacity
Fronthaul is conventional IP, compressed to backhaul-equivalent rates
pWaves Minis need no sync and no GPS
Consistent high throughput, low latency throughout the pCell coverage area. Whether sitting indoors, or riding a high-speed train. No cells, no cell edges, no handoffs, no dead zones.
It’s time to stop thinking about mobile as unreliable or inconsistent. It’s time to start thinking about what’s possible with ubiquitous broadband.

pCell isn’t just LTE
Each pCell supports a different protocol to each device in the same spectrum concurrently. pWave Minis support multiple current and future protocols at once.
For example, the same pWave Mini deployment will concurrently support 5G-class LTE devices and Fixed Wireless CPEs in the same spectrum. In the future the same pWave Minis will also support IoT, precise 3D positioning and wireless power protocols in the same spectrum. Or in any band from 600 MHz to 6 GHz.
All that is required are software updates to pCell Edge Software-Defined Radio servers.
