5by5 Wireless in negotiations for large area wireless in over 30 countries

Greg Waite, CEO, InventionShare

Greg Waite, CEO of InventionShare™, reported that 5by5 Wireless™ is now working with agents, country partners, governments, ISPs and telcos in various partnership programmes to support high speed internet developments through large area wireless consumer applications and IoT and smart city applications in over 30 countries.

Speaking from InventionShare’s Ottawa office, Mr. Waite said that things were moving quicker than expected on a number of fronts since the demand for high speed wireless internet in underserviced areas is now driving the market at a frantic pace. “We are pretty far down the road with a number of new partners in regards to servicing areas that, up to now, have not been able to get high speed internet, VOIP and multicast entertainment – which is what consumers want regardless of where they live. Combine that with our ability to give a ten times return on equipment investment in just three years with only 1500 subscribers, and it’s an attractive option for many providers.”

Mr. Waite said that a number of companies are also recognising how a 5by5 Wireless installation can provide significant value to preparing for future developments including, smart home, HaLow and IoT applications.

5by5 Wireless provides five times’ greater wireless internet coverage, providing for an economical wireless internet connectivity to low population density areas, and it uses the UHF 300-1000 MHz frequency spectrum to provide near line of site connection. Developed by a team of experienced technology entrepreneurs with many years’ experience in wireless communications, the full duplex wireless communications system is a 100% hardware solution. It affords greater data throughput and wireless coverage up to 25 miles (32 km) – for a total circular coverage area of 1,250 square miles or 3,200 square kilometers – from one low cost base station. The 5by5 Wireless circuit also can provide full duplex over all spectrum to all wireless communications devices; it is platform agnostic, providing reliable communications support wherever and whenever it is required. 

Mr. Waite said that 5by5 Wireless is a perfect complement to manufacturers looking to support the use of their devices throughout the home and through smart city/rural applications. A 5by5 Wireless installation can guarantee wireless support for those devices through the creation of large area hot-spots where all devices and circuits can communicate over large distances.

Mr. Waite said, “There’s a huge market opportunity waiting for a company interested in owning a complete solution – 3,200 square kilometer wireless WiFi and supporting tens of thousands of devices.” 

Mr. Waite said that most traditional suppliers have not considered a 5by5 Wireless solution because they are still fighting it out in price wars in urban and saturated markets. “There are a number of highly profitable opportunities for providing large area wireless in areas that used to be difficult to service. Up to now, users have been frustrated by the lack of support from some of the world’s larger companies.”

InventionShare is looking for telco, ISPs and country representatives to partner with 5by5 Wireless and provide consumer and business services to rural and remote areas or large area IoT solutions to farming, industrial internet, environment, forestry or security.
