SegundoNet a secondary cell network built cheaply


Quick link to slides

This is a concept I came up with in Jan 2014. Rumors of Google doing something similar to this concept started popping up recently, so it seemed like a good time to publish it.

Basic concept is to build a secondary cell network that complements the user’s existing (primary) cell network, offering reduced cellular data rates when a user is within the secondary cell network’s range. This secondary network would be significantly cheaper to construct as two major costs (backhaul & spectrum) are done more or less for free, by using Google Fiber as the backhaul and TV White Spaces & all unlicensed spectrum( 900MHz, 2.4 GHz, 5GHz) combined with best Cognitive radio practices for the network’s spectrum. Select Google Fiber customers would receive reduced Google Fiber rates for hosting the network’s Picocells. Additionally, each Google Fiber home would receive proprietary hardware in the form of a Wifi-router to implement the system’s Cognitive Radio. This proprietary hardware can be used to do other cool stuff.

But without further ado … here are the slides … the concept is a pretty cool one, pretty relevant, probably doable, and I expect some derivation of it to happen in real life pretty soon cuz Google has the rep for pushing things forward.
