Wireless Technology Uses Interference to Enhance Mobile Internet

A new wireless technology is being developed that makes better use of the wireless spectrum and uses a different approach than current wireless technology. This new technology, pCell, uses signal interference where signals overlap and create small personal mobile internet cells.

Currently, cellular towers are placed in locations intended to reduce interference between each other and they transmit signals that are used by mobile phones within their signal area. Every mobile phone receives a portion of the cell tower’s capacity and could be overloaded if too many people are trying to access the tower at the same time. pCell technology uses a different approach and relies on small base stations that signals purposely overlap. When users join this network, the signal doesn’t weaken, and the pCell network calculates the wireless conditions required for each mobile phone.
