The Background of the 6G project

Introduction of the 6G Project “The Second Wave of the Telecommunications Revolution”:

The first wave of the telecommunications revolution was focused on speed. This new wave is focused on cost, connectivity and convenience. (Triple C). From 1G to 5G the aim was to increase the speed. If 5G delivers the promised 1.5-3Gbps links then we can afford to slow down for one generation and revamp the network.

Inovatian Group starts with a high momentum and launch latest high technologies in telecommunications, electronics, and some state of the art mobile applications that would change the world again causing a second wave of revolutionary phase in the wireless telecommunications world led by Dr. Hatim Zaghloul, after the first wave he achieved in Canada, around 20 years ago with his inventions (WOFDM and MCDSSS – to be mentioned here that the IOT – internet of things – was one the claims of one of his inventions by that time) that changed life on earth (that made him classified as one of 10 great Canadians, Huffington Post Arabia classified him as one of the top ten Egyptians who contributed in the development of the modern world) by turning the globe to be a small connected village leading to have more than 13 billion smart phones connected today based on his distinguished achievements in science, technology, and entrepreneurial domains. Nevertheless to mention that his new latest invention, yet not released publicly, should add at least more than 1 billion active cellular phone. Moreover, his current 6G project (the concept of network of networks) should introduce the best quality, while being cheapest cellular subscriber experience ever anywhere across the globe for mobile users, sustaining more sales for mobile operators but with a different perspective dealing as wholesalers and allowing smooth handovers and switching between various technology based networks. Furthermore to mention the VoDATA mobile app and the new VoIP Interconnect Network that can act as social cloud and Interconnect between all different Social network/OTT and Fixed/Mobile operator that should change the way telephony operators and social media platform owners think.  Inovatian Group is the new dawn for the next wave of telecommunications revolution that will be kicked off from the heart of Egypt inshaAllah, it is Egypt’s gate for a better future.

Background: 

In an age when many of us take for granted, and increasingly rely on, access to the internet — whether on our smart phones or in our homes and offices — it is hard to imagine that two-thirds of the global population is not online.

The benefits of today’s information and communications technologies (ICTs), especially the internet, are not distributed evenly. Two out of three households in developing countries do not have internet access of any kind, compared to just 20 percent of households in developed countries. Of the two billion people in the developing world who have some internet access, many are limited to using costly mobile services that lack the quality and utility of high-speed broadband. Thus, many of the world’s poorest people are excluded from the benefits of reliable, affordable connectivity, including access to key tools that support sectors from healthcare to education, as well as entrepreneurs and small businesses. This is especially troublesome when you consider that a 2009 World Bank Report found that a 10 percent increase in broadband penetration can lead to a 1.38 percent increase in GDP growth in developing countries. Simply put, underdeveloped ICT in a country can severely impede overall economic and social progress. With the benefits of ICT so clear, there is unprecedented attention from public and private stakeholders to promote internet penetration worldwide.

Looking forward, supporting the closing of the digital divide, between those with internet access and those without, will remain an important area of focus for the Egyptian sustainable development strategy By 2030, has major pillars, such as the economical, social and environmental domains, and none of them could be achieved without providing high speed internet access to everyone in Egypt. To support that the Egyptian economy is a balanced, knowledge-based, competitive, diversified, market economy, characterized by a stable macroeconomic environment, capable of achieving sustainable inclusive growth. An active global player responding to international developments, maximizing value added, generating decent and productive jobs, and a real GDP per capita reaching high-middle income countries level.

Vision

Developing technologies related to telecommunication is to put Egypt ahead in the ‎telecommunications field as a producer to the technologies rather than being currently a consumer and to eventually offer Egyptians low cost communications ‎options technologies as (6G , firmware for WiFi device …)‎. we are performing all R&D efforts, and capacity building development ladder from theory, to real advanced telecommunications end products, either hardware, or software. Inovatian Group facilitates such processes to transform basic science to innovative products towards the Egyptian and International Markets through an agile technology entrepreneurship and commercialization approach.

MISSION

We work with international and national leading institutes developing new platforms for telecommunication, networking and electronics to solve Egypt urgent problems in many diversified fields based on latest and future telecommunications technologies. In order to achieve this goal, Inovatian will propose digital solutions, software and technologies to enable innovations of today and tomorrow. Furthermore, Inovatianseeks to work closely with the international industry and markets as well as universities and national bodies to support the development and commercialization of next world’s generations of innovations and technologies that meet the national and international challenges of high-priority sectors.

The Project; 6G Mobile Telephony

The idea is to have companies, resorts and compounds, universities and so on manage their own networks and give service to their constituency at a very low price. This will not reduce the revenue of operators who will be more like whole-sellers. We have a very aggressive plan to make the mesh technology the center of 6G development to facilitate national and international roaming to introduce to the subscribers the smoothest handover provided two main conditions (best user quality and minimum call/service price at his location). 6G in our mind is the concept that networks of various sizes/technologies (2G, 3G – WiMax, 4G, WiFi, LTE,…etc) will communicate directly with each other to perform all functions such as VoIP, video and internet. Basically making the whole network IP based dropping the GSM requirement. This would be done via developing artificial intelligence systems for self optimizing networks by having simultaneous correlated active modules such as; Reuse Frequencies/Codes/ID Optimization (RFCIO) module, Uplink noise reduction, Sudden Events Module, Automatic Performance Reports Module, Real-Time Alarm/Alerts Based Module, Parameter Consistency Enforcement Module, Sleeping Cell Resolution Module, Cell Outage Compensation Module, Capacity Auto Management and Dimensioning. The idea is similar to the introduction of mobile internet (which really started the real internet revolution). Operators originally hated the idea. Now they love the internet.

FIRST THREE YEARS PLAN:

The 6G project will focus on its first three years plan on different telecommunication technologies such as the Mesh WiFi technology and all its related components from firmware generated from smart complicated algorithms, up to main real Mesh WiFi network components from access points, and access controllers, control switches,…etc. as well as the various applications that could be run over WMN (wireless mesh network) such as; VoData (Voice over data – IP, LTE) for performing voice, data, video, calls and live streaming, Internet browsing,…etc. different applications, passing by the experimental phases for development and optimization.

We have a very aggressive plan to make the mesh technology the center of 6G development to facilitate national and international roaming to introduce to the subscribers the smoothest handover provided two main conditions (best user quality and minimum call/service price at his location).

6G in our mind is the concept of network of networks, meaning that networks of various sizes/technologies (2G, 3G – WiMax, 4G, WiFi, LTE,…etc) will communicate directly with each other to perform all functions such as VoIP, video and internet. Basically making the whole network IP based dropping the GSM requirement. We envision that operators will benefit from this since they would become wholesalers to these networks and the bearers of traffic between them.

To achieve the 6G goal within 2 years we need to: Make the units more autonomous whereby they sense if they got connected to the net on the wired side and form a new mesh network with its own channel (3 months). We need to make more seamless mobility between APs. We now rely on the switch to maintain the connection. We need to develop a mobile app that aids in this process and prevent unstable situations (6 months). Introduce full billing solutions for mesh networks that can be integrated with that of the operator (9 months). We need to make our technology available on various technologies such as WiMAX and LTE (18 months)

Mesh technology:

Meaning that one base station talks directly to another base station in search of some connectivity (like the internet). We have implemented this into WiFi access points (routers) and can have a large area (the size of a city) covered from a single point of access to the internet. We have already sold systems in some companies in Egypt and have proposals in many countries around the world. This mesh technology is the least expensive high speed access technology. It is 10 times less expensive than 3G and about 3 times less expensive than 4G. It is much more flexible than traditional WiFi since it does not need communications cabling everywhere. Our unique Mesh technologies for public Wi-Fi, this patented and optimized Mesh Wi-Fi technology is considered the best solution for 3/4G offloading problems, increasing optimal usage of bandwidth, throughput, providing coverage to rural and urban areas, remote locations, and over populous and high dense areas to terminate the problems of congestion, or none homogeneous usage and access of bandwidth.

Public Mesh WiFi Coverage;

Connecting to internet through landlines and modems are long gone. These connections created a lot of hassles and the internet speed was very slow. With the introduction of broadband internet connection, slow speed internet is a thing of the past. They are blazingly fast, making it a lot easier to exchange, share and receive information. Broadband connections can be used through a cable, telephone line or a satellite.

Broadband connections are of two types – Wired and Wireless. The latter is gaining significant importance lately, especially in metro cities. A wireless broadband connection is provided through a telephone line and the internet can be accessed by using a wireless router or data card.

Advantages of Mesh WiFi Public Coverage;

  • Distributing the internet from a single point of presence in a city to an entire city if needed
  • High speed internet connection
  • WiFi connectivity: the most common connectivity standard.
  • Convenience of browsing on-the-go
  • Fast and symmetric data download/upload
  • Freedom from getting entangled in wires
  • Low cost of installation
  • Internet can be accessed in remote areas
  • Provides a neat environment
  • Can be accessed by several gadgets, including mobile phones and tablets
  • Reaches where wired connection ceases to exist

Wireless broadband is here to stay as it’s effective in every way. It reduces cost, adds more range of connectivity and dismisses the hassles of wires.

Direct and Indirect Benefits to Egypt of establishing a public WiFi network across any country and we talk about Egypt here:

  • Security perspectives; that the army and Egyptian intelligence will own the information of subscribers without any need for the current 4 operators.
  • Expansion and ease of use of the CCNTV security cameras system across the country.
  • Ability for deep packet inspection across all digital data flowing across the network to track certain people, and/or groups whom threat the national security.
  • Support all developments of the security services and technological tools for police and military officers by monitoring all roads, highways, congested squares, universities, train and buses stations, markets,…etc.
  • Facilitate access to all E-Gov services to the people everywhere by providing its accessibility for free.
  • Creating new revenue streams by optimal usage of the unlicensed different bands of frequencies.
  • Improvement of the voice and data services(by freeing the radio channels for its major functions of transmitting voice and text) of all of the 4 operators by benefiting from the superiority of the 3/4G offloading features of the Mesh technologies.
  • Expanding the horizons for the government to reach out to the Egyptian people to provide a new era of latest technological services and applications, like e-learning,…etc.
  • Paving the way for the IOT – Internet Of Things – with all its unlimited applications that reflects directly on the national GDP for economical growth via its applications in agriculture, industrial modernization,…etc.
  • Ease and fast deployment of the network rollout for the access points and antennas installations.
  • Providing high speed internet access to small and medium enterprises across the country to enhance economic growth and creating more job opportunities for youth.
  • Solving problems of either of lacking of telecommunications services, or congestion of over populous areas in major cities like Cairo, and many others.
  • Providing high speed internet coverage everywhere in far away villages, and rural poor areas,…etc, that don’t have good telecommunications infrastructure.
  • Replacing the terrestrial cables everywhere, either copper or fiber, to minimize time and cost needed for digging and all paperwork needed for licenses,…etc.
  • Possibility of manufacturing the different equipment that shall be used to build the network in the military production facilities to create more jobs and save foreign currency by encouraging local production.
  • Benefiting from the network to perform research and development activities, employing more engineers and telecommunications professors from different universities in Egypt to enhance Egyptian superiority and advance for the 6G technology to be launched from Egypt instead of any other nation in the world.

 

VoDATA:

As we have completed the development of a 2G emulation system that can complete or initiate a 2/3/4G call on a data link and do all the interaction with the SIM card’s information even if the SIM card is removed from the mobile.

This is a cornerstone piece for VoWIFI/LTE.  From a global perspective, there are other correlated applications to the VoDATA, a new VoIP Interconnect Network that can act as social cloud and Interconnect between all different Social network/OTT and Fixed/Mobile operator. The idea has been tested 2 years ago using Open Source SIP Server and Open Source OTT ( SIP phone). We launched it on Server and managed successfully VoIP call between our VoIP/WIFI to Google Talk. It is ready to invest in renting a dedicated server to launch it and add the OTT client in both of ITunes and Google Play. The idea can be enriched if we use an OTT which is 3GPP complaint and fully compliant with Regulatory. In our view we will have our dedicated Server with OPEN SIP proxy, if we have interconnect agreement with International carrier and integrate to facebook/Skype/wechat, so our client can call google talk, face messenger, Skype or Viber in addition to fixed/mobile subs. the beauty of the idea that we can lease number series in each country and have our OTT approved by operator and regulator and become RCS hub.
