A Software-Defined Radio Architecture for Wireless Hubs
In 1996, for the first time PCs outsold TVs in units. We are now entering a new era where a new form of PC will be dominant: the digital cellular phone. Digital cellular phones will be as portable as your wallet. The vision of Radical Horizon is to develop a family of affordable, high-capacity radios that support rapid deployment of new mobile services to users within a specific geographical area. This family of radios can simultaneously support multiple frequency bands, channels, protocols, applications and it is capable of transmitting voice, video and data, all at once. However, the solution is not a one-size-fits-all system. Rather, it builds upon a common open system architecture to provide affordability and scalability. Therefore, although our radio can be used for a variety of radio applications, for the purpose of illustration, in this document we will be referring mostly to the cellular network applications.
