Broadband-in-Gas (BiG) provides twice the connectivity of fiber-optics at essentially the same installed cost per customer as DSL (about a tenth of the installed cost per customer for fiber to the home). Due to the gas pipelines containing an isolated, unregulated spectrum without any interference, wireless UWB signals travel inside the pipes from the local area node to the end-user through the underground pipeline pathway formed by the nature of the Ultra Wideband transmission format. NethercommÂs technology creates a primary pathway through natural gas distribution infrastructures and can carry enormous amounts of data by simply making use of the entire spectrum buried within the existing natural gas pipelines.
Nethercomm's Broadband-in-Gas technology delivers connectivity over the last-mile of broadband networks without interference or degradation of other wireless transmissions. By not consuming or sharing costly spectrum, and not requiring installation of last mile cable or fiber, Nethercomm is prepared to make broadband substantially more affordable while increasing end-user bandwidth to unprecedented levels.
Nethercomm is a private Delaware Corporation, based in Southern California, developing innovative and proprietary communication technologies for the fast-growing broadband and wireless markets. The companyÂs portfolio of patents encompasses what is believed to be the fundamental subterranean broadband communications.
