CCI is building an alternative 3G/4G network designed for mobile carrier data offloading to relieve the current data crunch. The U.S. is suffering from a Spectrum Crisis. We’re running out of available bandwidth. This fact has been reported by, CNN, Business Week, Money Magazine, The New York Times and others.
The existing frequencies are completely overloaded. The major mobile carriers planned for a voice mobile network. They did not anticipate the deluge of data traffic from songs, movies, apps and files that have become part of the lifestyle of mobile consumers.
By building a parallel sister network, CCI will become a solution to the overwhelming crunch of data. However, in order to be optimally effective, the CCI sister network must deliver data at the highest possible speed. These speeds are advertised in the marketplace today as “4G.” However, true 4G mobile services are not being delivered by the major carriers at this time. According to the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), there are very high-speed requirements for truly 4G services. High mobility communication (i.e. from a moving car or train) should have a high-end speed of 100 Mbps. Low-mobility and stationary use should have high-end speeds of 1 Gbps. Most hard wired home devices do not receive data at this kind of speed. However, beginning in December 2010, the mobile carriers were given permission to advertise 4G even though they could not deliver it. The ITU policy states that any technology that is a significant advancement to the 3G standard can be called 4G, even though it is not. Needless to say, this can be very confusing to all except a mobile communications engineer.
CCI offers a real solution and true “4G” speeds based on the IMT-Advanced standards.
