Airborne Wireless Network (OTCQB: ABWN), a tech company based in Simi Valley, California, has its mind set on changing the future of airborne connectivity forever by creating the first and only Airborne Wholesale Carrier Network and offering better and more efficient connectivity to worldwide communications and data service providers.
Based on a patent designed and obtained by a forward-thinking entrepreneur back in 2001, the Wholesale Carrier Network would use commercial aircraft as mini-satellites so as to create a global “airborne digital superhighway.” ABWN acquired the patent this year and intends to fully develop this technology and complete the creation of its Wholesale Carrier Network, taking advantage of recent advancements in wireless radio technology that would significantly simplify the implementation of the network.
What makes the ABWN project stand out, aside from the use of commercial aircraft, is the fact that it is a fully-meshed network, where signals come from several directions and are routed around any potential obstructions, thus maintaining real time connectivity. Current technologies only support single path systems, which are more likely to fail if the signal path is interrupted. Additionally, the Wholesale Carrier Network does not allow for ‘single points of failure’, being designed to dynamically and automatically assign new solid paths for the signals in case of adverse weather conditions, for instance. This can happen in real time since there is nearly always another aircraft, earth station or ship within range of an aircraft. With the traditional single link systems, heavy rain can affect satellites and fixed point ground stations, possibly even completely blocking a radio signal.
When complete, ABWN’s Wholesale Carrier Network will be the first and only true airborne broadband pipeline, capable of providing worldwide connectivity to broadband carrier services. The project offers guaranteed, nearly 100% real time performance, unlike single link systems’ store and forward performance.
In addition, the system is designed so as to be easy to upgrade, update or service, as new software becomes available. According to Airborne Wireless Network, as soon as more efficient technologies emerge, the system will be upgraded by simply replacing one module. This will ensure that the network will never become obsolete and will always be ready for future challenges. Current satellite technology, however, is not as easily upgradeable, and, in many cases, it has already become obsolete. Once launched, satellites cannot be updated or serviced, which can, in turn, affect connectivity and performance.
AWN’s Wholesale Carrier Network also provides enhanced reliability, since it operates in a controlled and safe environment – aboard commercial aircraft typically flying at altitudes between six and 12 kilometers above sea level (20,000 to 40,000 feet). Commercial and military satellites, on the other hand, can be easily disabled or knocked out of orbit if they are hit by space junk.
