Clear CinCom among first to offer Flash-OFDM services
As of today, telecommunications consultancy firm Clear CinCom offers consulting and implementation services for 4G Flash-OFDM technology. This new standard of mobile communications (based on 802.20) allows for vastly improved broadband performance with limited investment costs, thanks to complete compliance with existing infrastructures. Flash-OFDM is 100 percent IP based and as such it is compatible with existing IP client/host environments. Mobile broadband speeds and reliability can be upgraded without significant changes to data devices, contents and applications.
A first application of Flash-OFDM is thought to be the provision of broadband services on high speed train connections. Clear CinCom already is a major provider of consulting and implementation services for the GSM-Rail (GSM-R) standard. Director Martijn Kuijpers: High speed Internet is an important asset for railway companies in their competition with airlines. This is especially true in the market for business travelers. With Flash-OFDM, a true fourth generation technology standard is emerging. This will be of great benefit for railway companies and, ultimately, for passengers. On-board broadband will now be reliable, uninterrupted and truly high speed.
Flash-OFDM has several distinct advantages over previous technologies. It overcomes the high setup costs and the need to use large antennas that complicate satellite technology. Unlike the latter, Flash-OFDM it is not affected by obstacles such as tunnels and trees. Other than WiMax, seamless handoff makes Flash-OFDM truly mobile. This also is a key advantage over UMTS, as is the ability to use large cells.
