SDR Hardware & Software Sales, Service: - Provide WindyCitySDR hardware for GSM
GSM is the technology to connect 4 billion people on the planet who don't use mobile phones yet. It will the dominating technology for voice and messaging for at least 10-15 years more. It's cheap, has huge existing user base and easily works at places where 3G/4G signals can't get to.
3. How this is Disruptive
Unlike existing vendors like Motorola, Ericsson, Huawei, NSN, ALU and ZTE, our business model is geared towards enabling society access to the RF Spectrum directly to their General Purpose Computer. Once within your user space, the software you execute determines which Radio your Software Defined Radio board becomes.
Charge VAS, MNOs, Municipalities, "Broadband Initiatives", etc. for Maintenance/Updates on a per Transaction/Subscription basis. While the business model is software centric, hardware is important too because it allows us to control hardware quality and provide tight integration with software. This could be revised later when similar hardware appear on the market. This business model is most attractive in Africa, LATAM and Paci c regions, or the EXPLOITED MARKETS, where there is a huge demand for mobile communications from the poorest parts of the population. Though developed countries such as the USA can benefit tremendously as well.
The ultimate goal is to build a Chicago based community around our SDR solutions and services, encompassing "Next Generation" technology to be manufactured within Chicago stimulating employment, the local economy, and surrounding community. WindyCitySDR is interested in reclaiming Chicago's past, today, well into the future. Chicago was once known to have started the USA's Mobile Phone Network!
