Competitive Companies, Inc. (“CCI”) is positioning to become the premiere North American data offload carrier with the development of the first 3G/4G Cellular WiFi Offload Network.
This network will deliver true 4G data speeds as defined by IMT-Advanced (International Mobile Telecommunications Advanced) requiring speeds of 100 mbps to mobile end user devices utilizing proprietary and patented technology. By rolling out this network across the United States and then, the entire world – it is the stated mission of CCI: “To provide a real, efficient, cost effective, solution to the crippling data overloads contributing to the current spectrum crisis clogging the major mobile carriers existing networks.”
Competitive Companies, Inc. (“CCI”) was originally incorporated in the state of Nevada in March 1998. CCI currently acts as a holding company for its operating subsidiaries - WyTec International, Inc., WyLink, Inc., and Wireless Wisconsin LLC (formerly DiscoverNet, Inc.) collectively involved in delivering high speed wireless Internet services throughout North America on both a wholesale and retail basis. (In our Corporate literature, we generally refer to our owned companies as the CCI group of companies)
On July 23, 2010, Wireless Wisconsin, LLC, was formed as a wholly owned subsidiary of Competitive Companies, Inc. Wireless Wisconsin, LLC, provides high speed wireless Internet connections to residents in rural communities, as well as some dial-up internet services to businesses and residents within various markets throughout rural Wisconsin. We operate in both regulated and non-regulated environments. Our current plan now includes the delivery of 4G mobile broadband services via WiFi in major and rural markets throughout the United States.
On November 8, 2011, the Company entered into a stock purchase agreement with MediaG3, Inc. and its wholly owned subsidiary, WyTec, International.
WyTec International currently hosts the five (5) patents originally developed by WyTec, Inc. from 1999- 2001. These patents are directly related to the technology involving Local Multipoint Distribution System “LMDS” operating in the 21 to 39 Gigahertz Spectrum. A key technical development in the patents was a process known as Multichannel Radio Frequency Transmission “MRFT”. This process allows the utilization of combining channels within a frequency range thereby effectively multiplying the available throughput of bandwidth. The attorneys that have reviewed the patent language have strongly indicated that there may be significant value to these patents both from a licensing and an enforcement perspective.
WyLink, Inc. www.WyLink.net is also a wholly owned entity of CCI/WyTec, International and was recently developed for two distinct purposes.
1) WyLink is currently selling millimeter wave “Registered Links” through the protection of the FCC. These Links incorporate a “short haul” backbone link to a microcell network. The Links are designed to connect point to point locations from one rooftop to another where fiber optics does not exist or is too expensive to incorporate in the network. The CCI network design is aimed at the continuation of a gigahertz delivery to its microcell sub-network onto a mobile broadband delivery to the end user utilizing any type of mobile broadband device including cell phones, iPads, iPods and tablets. More mobile broadband devices are being introduced to the market continually.
Millimeter wave technology is more commonly known as LMDS or Local Multipoint Distribution Service and utilized in broadband wireless access technology originally designed for digital television transmission (DTV). It was conceived as a fixed wireless, point-to-multipoint technology for utilization in the last mile on a fixed wireless basis. LMDS commonly operates on microwave frequencies across the 26 GHz and 29 GHz bands. In the United States, frequencies from 31.0 through 31.3 GHz are also known as Millimeter wave frequencies. Currently millimeter wave frequencies are primarily used in point to point network architecture vs. a point to multipoint configuration. Technology is quickly evolving in point to multipoint network design utilizing millimeter spectrum as lower band frequencies become less available. The Company has most recently received FCC approval to operate in the 70-90 GHz millimeter spectrum and is currently engaged in qualifying Registered Links utilizing this spectrum under the FCC “Protected” Registered Link Program.
WyLink, Inc., is now preparing and filing with the Federal Communications Commission (“FCC”), Form 601-FCC Applications for Radio Service Authorization (“Application”) for the purpose of obtaining the use of “millimeter wave” spectrum in the 71-76 GHz, 81-86 GHz and 92-95 GHz bands on a shared basis with Federal Government operations. The FCC adopted a flexible and innovative regulatory framework for the 71-95 GHz bands that would not require traditional frequency coordination among non-Federal Government users. Rights with regard to specific links will be established based upon the date and time of “Link Registration.”
Once a “frequency” license has been obtained under the Registered Link Program, the license holder must register GPS coordinates on a Point to Point Link with an FCC Certified Database Manager to receive FCC frequency protection under the Link registered. Frequency holders may register as many Links as desired but must establish an “operating” link determined by connecting proper radio equipment at each end of the Link within one (1) year of registration. WyLink, Inc. performs the license, registration, and offers to establish the “operating” requirements on behalf of Link Holders and agrees to create a lease on a minimum portion of its capacity.
WyLink has now organized its operations to 1) prepare and file one or more applications for the 70-80 GHz license, 2) register Link (s) utilizing point to point coordinates and 3) provide necessary telecommunications equipment to secure FCC frequency protection under the Link Program.
