(ICO) Capacity Transfer Radio (XCTR) - A revolutionary patented technology designed to bring the cellular technology to remote areas
Capacity Transfer Radio (CTR) is a revolutionary patented technology
designed to bring the cellular technology to remote areas. It has lower
operational costs, more effective coverage zones and is easier to deploy
than traditional base stations.
The main objective of CTR project is the formation of solutions for cheaper and
alternative opportunities in telecommunications systems.
The main idea of the project is to provide cheap and affordable opportunities for
all people on our planet, especially in developing countries and hard-to-reach places
of residence or access to high-speed Internet, mobile communications, and
Our team designed a revolutionary Capacity Transfer Radio (CTR) technology that
provides coverage equivalent to traditional base station coverage with significantly
lower total cost of ownership and low power consumption (with the possibility of
using alternative power sources like solar panels or wind power plants ), small
weight and size, which can simultaneously use multiple operators. Mobile
operators will be able to decide for themselves if it is advisable to buy their stations
when they can be rented. But in one case or another, they have the possibility of
both renting and purchasing equipment.
Our invention has been patented in many countries and interested operators of
mobile communication in Africa, Asia and Latin America, as well as the developed
countries of Europe, with the ability to save energy and at the same time being an
environmentally responsible project.
The uniqueness of the blockchain technology provides tremendous potential for
the realization of our global idea, such as providing an opportunity for mobile
providers to rent our stations without spending on expensive base stations that
are currently in use. The blockchain technology makes it possible to make the
traffic accounting system (transmission of digital and voice data) transparent
when using one “tower” by several operators, as well as in the following areas:
digital identity, data management (storage of various documents), roaming, 5G
(selection of the most high-speed node for communication), Smart City - due
to openness and transparency, a secure P2P connection for IoT devices to create a
cost-effective and self-managing system, as well as enable cellular companies to
leave Make your data and customer data anonymous.
With a sufficient level of development of our platform, a decentralized blockchain
can become completely autonomous and self-sufficient.
Having in the future many clients in different countries of the world and for quick
settlements with them, we will release our tokens for internal settlements.
Investors and customers who buy our tokens will be able to earn their interest on
the use of mobile operators and network equipment traffic.
Our tokens are generated to serve as a recognized method of payment for all
mobile telecommunications transactions conducted through our platform. Users
will need to use tokens that can be received and exchanged for fiat currencies
and other cryptocurrency assets.
Our company has a clear understanding in the application of blockchain
technology for an already almost finished product for industrial production.

Addressable market for CSCT
Although there is no reliable data on the actual breakdown of newly deployed sites
(into urban, suburban and rural) one can use the historic breakdown data as a
95% of microcells go to provide connectivity in densely populated areas, while
only 5% of microcells expand coverage in specific remote and/or rural
60%-70% of macrocells go to increase capacity within existing footprint and
30%-40% are meant to improve basic connectivity on the edge of existing footprint
or to eliminate “white spots” in the sparsely populated areas on the footprint map.
Given that 4G deployment is very far from completion even on the most advanced
markets outside Europe, it is only prudent to assume that the current trend in
networks expansion should hold through 2020. It is somewhat difficult to provide
accurate projections beyond 2021-2022 when operators across the globe embark
on 5G deployment.
The main issue with 5G deployment between 2021 and 2025 is that on majority of
market it should require a far denser network of sites than is currently available. For
example, according to Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), King’s
College London, and the universities of Surrey and Sussex, the UK market will
require at least 400,000 incremental stand alone ground based towers to deploy 5G
in rural areas (compared to 40 thousand towers in operation as of the end 2017). It
is becoming a political issue in the UK, where authorities pounder over radical
reforms: (i) deregulation of street furniture (which should allow deployment of radio
access nodes on churches and public buildings); (ii) ease of license requirements to
allow communities erect their own stand alone ground based towers and deploy
alternative radio access devices to expand cellular coverage.
There are several bizarre estimates that illustrate, however, the magnitude of the
problem faced by mobile operators in the context of 5G deployment. One of the
leading global financial institutions Swiss UBS released their own estimate of the
incremental sites required to establish 5G footprint in New York metropolitan area:
“We modeled how many 5G sites would be required to cover the NY-NJ-PA Metropolitan
Statistical Area (MSA), an area of ~8,300sq/mi with >20m population (6% of
US total). Using FCC tower data, terrain, street and vertical elevation models, our
analysis suggests over 600,000 5G cells (each at 100m radius) would be required
for contiguous 5G coverage – more than a 500-fold increase from today's 3G/4G
cell footprint” . Apparently, there is unlikely to be a seamless 5G coverage even in
densely populated areas. It is obvious however, that we should expect yet another
cycle of mobile network expansion after 2021 when 5G becomes commercially
The Cellular System with Capacity Transfer (CSCT) technology was designed to
reduce costs and improve cellular communications performance in sparsely
populated and/or economically inefficient localities without losing network

Efficiency and cost reduction
The use of RRS (radio-relay systems, ITU terminology) can be considered as a
solution of increasing the radio coverage area of the BS (basic station) by using
capacity transfer radio units (CTRUs). A similar problem can be solved by other
- Use of repeaters with frequency conversion. Repeaters of direct amplification
are not considered due to their inapplicability outside the premises
- Increase the budget of the radio by increasing the power of the BS and / or
using special antenna systems. Call this "powerful BS"
Comparison of the considered methods can be carried out using a table below.
Conditionally, with the weighting criteria’s coefficients (1-6), the preferability of one
or another method can be represented as the following table.
The final preference is obvious.
As for optimizing the capacity of cellular systems (clusters), one more useful
property of RSS - creation of focal zones of low-capacity radio coverage, when the
radius of the focus (spot, cell) is much smaller than the radius of the reference BS
zone, and the retransmission interval is much greater. We are talking about vast
spaces with many small settlements. An example of such a region in the floodplain
of the Ural River is shown on the picture below.
The CTR technology can significantly reduce the cost of equipment and power
consumption. The chart below shows the figures.
CSCT technology explained
CSCT technology helps to expand the footprint of radio access nodes (also referred
to as “base stations”) in mobile networks of the second, third and fourth generation
(2G, 3G, 4G). Each installation therefore consists of “donor sites” (i.e. the sites to get
expanded footprint) and several CTRUs. Donor sites can be installed with an interval
of up to 50 km for GSM and up to 200 km for LTE and UMTS, with CTRUs
between them, resulting in:

base stations (BTS-R):
Have a connection to the backhaul.
Are supplemented with standard transceivers (TRX 2–TRX 4), which provide
the capacity of the corresponding capacity repeating sites (CTRU1-CTRU3).
Are supposed to have radio frequency converters (RF Converters) installed
implementing together with the CTRUs (installed on CTRU1–3) the linear transfer
of standard LTE air interfaces to the frequency range of repeating (FR) and back
(the converter is connected directly to the radio output of the donor BS).
The first repeating site
A CTRU is installed at the capacity repeating site (CTRU1) closest to the home
base station, at the top of the tower.
Each CTRU consists of three transceivers (X1–X3).
The X1 transceiver transfers LTE signals from the frequency range of repeating
(FR) back to the standard cellular frequency range and forms the CTRU1 coverage
The X2 and X3 transceivers transfer LTE signals from one frequency nominals
to other FR range nominals and ensure their further repeating to the CTRU2.
The second repeating site
A CTRU consisting of two transceivers (X1, X2) is installed.
The X1 transfers LTE signals (received from the X2 CTRU1 transceiver) from
the frequency range of repeating (FR) back to the standard frequency range and
forms the CTRU2 coverage area.
The X2 continues the repeating chain, transferring LTE signals (received from the
X3 CTRU1 transceiver) from some frequency nominals to other FR range nominals
and ensures their further repeating to the CTRU3.
The third repeating site
A CTRU is installed that includes only the X1 transceiver transferring LTE signals
(received from the X2 CTRU2 transceiver) from the frequency range of repeating
(FR) back to the standard frequency range and forming the CTRU3 coverage area.
Conclusions of the ITU (International Telecommunication Union)
The CSCT technology in various scenarios described above saves the cost of
network deployment and reduces power consumption with a positive impact on
the environment. Network capital investments can be reduced approximately three
times and OPEX can be reduced approximately 5-7 times depending on the specific
scenario (the number of retranslation channels, the number of CTRUs and their
types). The power consumption of the CTRU varies from 160 W to 300 W
depending on CTRU location in the chain, which is confirmed by field tests. Low
energy consumption by the CTRUs allows the use of alternative energy sources
(compact solar panels, mounted on top of the tower or must, fuel (hydrogen, etc.
cells) and creation of environmentally friendly green networks.
Conclusions of the Bell Labs expert forum
The CTR project solution offers a cost-effective alternative to base stations in
containers for low-loaded localities. Ordinary base stations have a high power
consumption (3-4 kW per base station), which leads to significant costs for
operation in comparison with the CTRUs (260 W). This is especially important for
localities where the return on investment (ROI) is a difficult task.

The main advantages of the business expansion ICO model:
• Token sale is a cost-effective fundraising mechanism and also makes a serious
competition to venture capital;
• ICO will not only be a fundraising event, but also an excellent marketing
• Token sale provides an opportunity to interact with the community and create
products in consultation with token holders and experts. The result of this interaction
is the creation of products that are best in class for customers.;
• Open opportunity for participants to enter and leave a position within a few
minutes, compared with years in the traditional venture capital industry.
The purpose of token is to provide fast and secure network scaling.
Token is used for several functions:
• Ensuring reliability and safety through the introduction of dynamic charges;
• Granting a 15% discount for the acquisition of CTRU, as well as other products
produced or offered during the implementation of the project CTR;
• Regular payments from the results of the rental equipment CTRU;
• Estimated unit for recording digital and voice traffic with partners and users within
the framework of concluded contracts with mobile network operators;
• Cash payments to active token holders.
For the implementation of the blockchain option, a smart contract was developed in
the Solidity language. With the help of OpenZeppelin and ZeppelinOS as Solidity
frameworks, the security of the smart contract is ensured.
The core is based on open-source and secure contracts of OpenZeppelin.
In case there are any security issues found in Solidity or the Smart Contract, we canupgrade
it with the help of the ZeppelinOS framework. This is done, to prevent losses
of investments and to ensure that the product can grow with its challenges while
staying completely secured.
The smart contract is based on the ERC20 standard, which allows the use of tokens
for transactions and trading exchanges.
The token will be distributed through the CTR Group website, where the investment
canbe withdrawn to any ERC20 compatible Ethereum wallet. We have ensured, that
the distribution is secure and protected against attacks.
