“Serial entrepreneur Steve Perlman claims that his new patented technology can create the wireless network of our dreams,” Dan Farber reports for CNET.
“His invention, pCell, theoretically delivers on the long-sought dream of ubiquitous, fast Internet, with the reliability and consistency previously only achievable through a wired connection,” Farber reports. “pCell is ‘effectively mobile fiber,’ he announced in a press release for his new company, Artemis Networks.”
“pCell, which stands for ‘personal cell,’ exploits interference rather than avoiding it as in conventional wireless networks,” Farber reports. “Instead of avoiding interference, pCell technology embraces it, combining radio signals transmitted from multiple pCell base stations to synthesize pCells about a centimeter in size around each mobile device. These pCells are like tiny air bubbles that direct a full amount of wireless capacity into a device, amping up its speed. As a result of the personal pCells, users aren’t waiting for their turn and aren’t competing for limited spectrum.”
