WiFi Wireless Announces New Protocol
TIGARD, OR -- 12/10/2004 -- WiFi Wireless, Inc. (OTC: WFIW) announced today that they had contracted with AValon RF, Inc. of El Cajon, CA, to design and produce its first generation wireless terrestrial “last mile” mobile UHF, narrow band, high data rate, 802.22 based solution for it’s global communication network.
WiFi Wireless’ network, through its proprietary IP, will offer the following advantages:
-- Provide users with a seamless, highly mobile, high speed internet connection.
-- Use of UHF spectrum in conjunction with “Space-Time” technology will allow users operation at long range (up to 10miles) under very limited line of sight conditions, reducing the number of base stations per coverage area.
-- Allow a high speed (downlink data rates from 200Kb/sec up to 1.53MB/sec) connectivity over narrow band channels.
-- The utilization of narrow band channels in combination with proprietary segmented antenna technology allows clustering of up to 25,000 on-line subscribers per single base station.
Other companies in the “wi-fi” (wireless fidelity) sector utilize the 802.11 spectrums and are slated to also utilize the 802.16 as the new “WiMAX” standard, which is limited by distance, bandwidth and user terminals capacity. Currently, “wi-fi” standards are limited severely by their lack of spectrum and end users access to high-speed data rates supplied by the POP (Point Of Presence). 802.11 carries a maximum data rate of 54Mb/sec, per single user on a WLAN (wireless local area network) but degrade at a rate of 50% as another user is added to the limited network.
The actual data rate for the internet connection for the 802.11 standards is also limited to the internet connection which it receives from the POP and is usually around 1.5Mb/sec to 3Mb/sec on a cable or DSL connection, making it impossible to obtain anything higher than the 3Mb/sec wireless internet connection if more than one user is utilizing the same network. Not only is the data transfer severely cramped if more than one user is on a network, but the distance in which the 802.11a networks function is limited to a maximum range of 1,000 feet (in a clear, outdoor environment). Since the 802.11 standard uses radio waves it has a very difficult time traveling through brick, wood and metal walls in a home or office setting and generally average about a range of 60-150ft for a data connection.
By first quarter 2005, WiFi Wireless will begin to offer orientation demos to all qualified distributors.
About WiFi Wireless, Inc.
WiFi Wireless Incorporated (OTC: WFIW). WiFi Wireless provides an expanded network technology to the traditional wi-fi (802.11) system. Currently, wi-fi (802.11) systems are confined to “Hot Spot” locations within a limited radius. WiFi Wireless focuses on “Space-Time” technology applications by using current UHF frequencies that enables WiFi Wireless’ hardware to provide 10 miles of service from the POP Point Of Presence, rather than the conventional wi-fi (802.11) retail space application. WiFi Wireless utilizes a base station antenna with a capacity that will allow up to 25,000 simultaneous users without degradation in performance. Business franchises can now be part of the WiFi Wireless network by providing a POP site in one central location, instead of multiple, costly, small networks at a fraction of the price of current T-Span charges affiliated with standard “Hot Spot” networks.
