Nethercomm Background

Nethercomm is a privately-held Delaware corporation based in Southern California and led by start-up veterans who have extensive experience in developing and rolling-out new communications technologies.

Nethercomm plans to deliver the industry’s most capable and lowest cost last-mile communication technology by combining our intellectual property and proprietary technologies with established broadband and natural gas distribution systems.


.

Broadband Background

  • The market for broadband services is enormous

    • 47 Million US Broadband Subscribers

    • 95 Million Domestic Cable/Satellite TV Customers

    • 112 Million Residential Telephone Lines in the US

    • Broadband Internet Subscriptions grew over 37% last year

    • 20 Million US Homes used Video-on-Demand in 2004

    • Last year 32 Million residences received telephone service from non-RBOCs

  • Adoption of broadband services remains constrained

    • Today D/L rates average <3 Mbps; by 2009, 57-84 Mbps will be needed

    • U.S. pays about $35/month for 1.5Mbps; in Japan, about $25 for 26 Mbps

    • 80% do not have broadband, including half of those earning over $75K

The residential Broadband Industry will be worth $90B by 2009 representing a seven fold increase in revenue over the next five years. -- ARC Group (www.arcgroup.com)


.

Nethercomm’s Intellectual Property Enables Delivery of Broadband Services Over Natural Gas Distribution Piping

Nethercomm’s proprietary system "piggybacks" high-performance broadband communications over existing natural gas distribution networks

Broadband-in-Gas (BiG) leverages existing natural gas infrastructure to bridge the “last mile” which hampers other broadband approaches.

Nethercomm invented the BiG technology and is developing and making BiG available through our development partners and strategic alliances.


.

Broadband in Gas (BiG) Network Technology Harnesses Basic Physics For Super-Efficient Signal Transmission

  • Nethercomm Wireless Transmission:

    • -- Uses wireless radio frequency (RF) transmission like a conventional radio station broadcasting through the atmosphere

    • -- Signal travels through the hollow center of existing Natural Gas distribution pipes like a coaxial cable, with the gas being the conductive wire

  • Using signals inside a buried conduit presents an unlimited private spectrum

    - very low-noise within the operating environment, zero conflict with external applications


Narrowband Communications

(30KHz bandwidth)

Spread Spectrum Communications

(5MHz bandwidth)

.

Emitted Signal Power

Ultra Wideband Communications

(Several GHz bandwidth)

“Ultra Wide Band” (UWB) is a Communication Technology Declassified by the US Defense Department in 1994

  • Ultra Wide Band (UWB) Communication:

    • Extremely low-power transmission

    • -- tiny fractions of a watt for safe, efficient transmission in flammable environment

    • Spreads signal over a block of frequencies

    • -- opposite of conventional radio, which puts high power into a narrow frequency band

    • Wide-spectrum signal inherently robust, recoverable, and interference-resistant

    •        -- UWB redundancy keeps signal intact even if an external source “jams” a frequency

    • Widely used for state-of-the-art commercial wireless and military communications

    •         -- high efficiency, high reliability, high performance
