Nokia Networks has signed a memorandum of understanding with Artemis Networks to test pCell wireless technology next year in large indoor venues and other high density areas.
Artemis created a new technology that it called pWave.
“Wireless antennas using the technology, the company said, would be able to create small ‘bubbles’ of connectivity around smartphones, tablets, and other devices that would eliminate the need for people to share bandwidth, and speed up internet connections dramatically in crowded spaces,” Rich McCormick reported for The Verge.
The “bubbles” are called pCells, or personal cells.
“Theoretically they will follow smartphones as their owners move around,” McCormick reported. “That makes them ideal for deployment in crowded areas, where normally hundreds or thousands of people share the same cell, and slowing down connection speeds.”
