TCM Mobile Unveils First Ever VOIP-Based Cellular System

Syracuse -- TCM Mobile unveiled its revolutionary, patented technology which uses free unlicensed spectrum to provide high-quality cellular phone service using voice over internet protocol (VOIP).

The result of several years of development and testing, the new telecommunication technology uses free, unlicensed spectrum, for example 2.4 GHz, traditionally used for broadband wireless data services, to deliver voice, data and location-based advertising within large area network environments. This use of free, unlicensed spectrum enables TCM Mobile and other carriers acquiring TCM Mobile's technology to enter the cellular marketplace without purchasing dedicated spectrum, which in recent FCC auctions has cost carriers billions of dollars. In addition, infrastructure cost is a fraction of that for cellular technologies and operating cost is substantially lower because of TCM Mobile's small, modular equipment.

"TCM Mobile has resolved the major challenges associated with developing this type of system, such as eliminating interference, roaming seamlessly (seamless hand-off) and creating a successful network architecture," said a senior TCM Mobile executive. "We are proud to announce that we have achieved our goals and look forward to demonstrating our technology to the world."

With its own team of engineers, TCM Mobile has developed and built the entire system, including base stations, handsets and all related hardware and software necessary to operate, maintain and control its system.

TCM Mobile has deployed its network in downtown Syracuse, New York, a city well-known for field-testing of emerging communication technologies, with the support of the city and its technology-friendly environment.

Testing was recently completed, and the results are significantly greater than targeted expectations.
