The inevitability of transition of the global society from the industrial economy to the informational one is undeniable as this process is gaining pace by the year. The role of telecommunication technologies is inherently important to ensure that these metamorphoses occur not only in the developed countries but will have a worldwide reach.
The cellular-compatible mobile devices, commonly known as smartphones, play a crucial part in the dispersion of information and they rely heavily on the radio frequency spectrum. Whilst the progressive countries enjoy top-notch mobile services, which facilitate their further economic growth, the situation in the developing, not to mention the underdeveloped ones, is dire. According to the official statistics, the reach of mobile services in these countries rarely surpasses 50% because the local telecom operators don’t have the means for improving the penetration of cellular frequencies throughout the entire territory of the respective countries.
Enter Capacity Transfer Radio (CTR), the project that brought together scientists, digital entrepreneurs, and technology gurus. Their joint effort resulted in the creation of the unique technology that will make the provision of telecom services more streamlined and cost-efficient.
Capacity Transfer Radio is an example of technological innovation that can serve as a fully fledged substitution to the conventional base radio stations, which usually consume a lot of electricity and have a high maintenance cost. The reduced power consumption was made possible thanks to CTR’s compatibility with solar panels, wind energy converters, and other schemes for producing alternative energy.
The CTR development group created the Cellular System with Capacity Transfer (CSCT), where each unit consists of four lightweight capacity transfer radio units that serve as the fully functional complement to a single base station.
Each CSCT unit has the capacity transferability properties, meaning that they can translate the radio channel capacity from one repeater (CTR base stations) to another and change these channels into the standard mobile frequency bands. Another distinguishing feature of CTR tower is that they can be mounted directly on the wind turbine thus have an independent power source, or may even run on an external battery. Each CTR base station is easily mountable since its overall weight doesn’t exceed 100 kg.
One CTR station costs almost three times less than the regular one thanks in no small way to the absence of the radio relay station. The CSCT can be easily installed and operated separately from the core infrastructure, which is especially relevant to operators that try to broaden their range of services to remote towns and rural areas as well as state highways.
CTR uses the Ethereum blockchain technology to accommodate several solutions, the most important of which is the transparent system for traffic (data and voice) accounting. This system is necessary because each CTR tower can be used simultaneously by several mobile providers.
Blockchain will also be used for secure data management and storage, the protection of users’ digital identity as well as the establishment of a fail-safe connection with IoT devices.
The CTR system is powered by the ERC-20 compliant token called XCTR, which is used for seamless network scaling, payments for equipment renting, the conclusion and execution of smart contracts with mobile operators.
The Capacity Transfer Radio is currently having the ICO which ends on May 31, with 50 million XCTR tokens allocated for sale. The price of one token is 0.5 EUR; the minimum purchase - 100 XCTR or 5 EUR. Citizens of the United States can’t participate in the token sale.
