Innovation Watch: pCell

Did you know that Artemis Networks has come up with a technological advancement that would make mobile data connectivity (like video streaming) run seamless and.. faster than it is today?

Well, yes.. Steve Perlman has developed what he calls pCell or “personal cell” technology. And this network equipment could actually draw a signal that is unique in itself for devices that connects to the transmitter, and thus, taking full advantage of the bandwidth.

See, one major problem with our connections (shared mobile bandwidth) today is that when there are so many users – congestion makes connectivity jam up. But with this technology, we could now experience faster and uninterrupted mobile data – even with a ton of users as these pWave radios are small enough to be placed just about anywhere. So.. is it goodbye dead spots as well?

Oh, just think of what Perlman told the Business Week, “…it’s like the wireless equivalent of fiber-optic cables. ”

Hmm…

At any rate, exciting as it may seem, the question would now be.. when would this pCell technology be available for the rest of the world, and “without technical problems” at that? Yes, it’d be set out in the U.S. before the year ends; but sadly, many countries (especially in their provinces) are just left too far behind.. even for as simple as the 3G.
