Freedom wireless Broadband is based on the iBurst wireless
broadband system developed by Personal Broadband Australia.
The service uses the use the high quality ArrayCom wireless
broadband equipment and is deployed through a number of tower
base stations across metropolitan Sydney. The iBurst
system uses a non line of site technology, that means that
(just like mobile phones) you do not need to be able to see
the tower to be able to get broadband Internet.
The iBurst system is based on IntelliCell technology from ArrayComm in the US to attain the extreme levels of efficiency in usage of the available radio frequency.
Through the use of advanced algorithms, IntelliCell’s fully adaptive smart antenna technology dynamically adjusts signal patterns to and from each subscriber, creating a “personal cell” for efficient delivery of voice or data services. These personal cells follow people as they move, reducing radio interference.
With IntelliCell, each base station uses a small array of off-the shelf antennas coupled with ArrayComm’s sophisticated signal processing techniques to dynamically control radio signals between the base station and the user terminal. The signal processing selectively amplifies each user’s intended signal and rejects all unwanted signals, allowing greater numbers of users to share the spectrum. The result is a significant increase in capacity and coverage that leads to substantial reductions in the costs for infrastructure deployment, network operations, system maintenance and radio spectrum.
Conventional base stations, unlike IntelliCell equipped-base stations, transmit energy in all directions. In this instance, only a small fraction of the signal reaches the intended subscriber. The rest of the RF energy is wasted and generates noise that interferes with other users in the system. More recent techniques of “pointing” a signal to the intended user are hampered by the abundance of physical obstacles like buildings and trees that make such line-of-sight transmission impossible.
It's a lightweight PCMCIA card with a small extending aerial, providing always on connectivity anywhere within the network coverage area, even at speeds in excess of 100 km/hr.
