(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.

    Project Idea

    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
    blockchain technology.
    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.

    Solution

    Cellular System with Capacity Transfer (CSCT technology) developed by CTR
    provides operators with valuable competitive advantages:
    - Enables expanding service coverage to the previously underserved areas
    - Reduces capital costs and operating costs, increases the return on network
    investment
    - Supports sustainable social and economic development focus
    - Replaces 5 base stations 3G/4G by 1 base station + 4 CTRU (Capacity
    Transfer Radio Unit)
    - Provides the ability of sharing a radio access network (RAN Sharing) by
    multiple operators
    - Offers superior network experience in the areas where other operators do not
    have coverage
    - Enables the use of light masts for CTRU installation instead of heavy towers
    - Improves energy efficiency of the site by factor of 5-7 and provides the
    possibility of using alternative energy sources, such as portable solar panels and
    fuel cells
    - CSCT technology is 5G compliant and 5G product would be production ready in
    2020
    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
    guidance:
    95% of microcells go to provide connectivity in densely populated areas, while
    only 5% of microcells expand coverage in specific remote and/or rural
    destinations;

    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
    available.

    capacity or coverage area. The consumers of the technology are cellular
    communication operators.


    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
    known methods:
    - 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:
    Reduction in the number of handovers
    Provision of an optimum service of the changing traffic load generated by
    passing cars and trains

    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
    area.
    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.

    ICO

    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
    opportunity;
    • 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.

    Smart-contract

    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.
