Business Case Problem

In 2023 monthly global data traffic will exceed 100 Exabytes. North America has the highest usage, and traffic is expected to reach 7.1 GigaBytes (GB) per month per smartphone by the end of the year and increase to 48GB by the end of 2023.

Currently 95 percent of wireless cellular infrastructure in urban dense cities sits outside of high rise buildings. In order to meet the ever-increasing smartphone video demand, AR, and Iiot for data, the cellular capacity needs to come from inside buildings. Wi-Fi is not sufficient to meet the quality of service and security required by the most valued tenants in the most valuable commercial real estate in the top 250 global cities. Key 2 Mobile has been issued three U.S. patents (over 60 claims total) for an innovative indoor only, 4/5G cellular, platform which can support all mobile operators simultaneously with fiber capacity to the RAN edge.

Target Markets

Location, Location, Location: The top 250 cities by population have the greatest need for indoor fiber capacity wireless networks. Key 2 Mobile is targeting high rise commercial and high rise residential buildings in these urban dense cities. In the U.S. the sweet spot for Key 2 Mobile deployment is 5 billion square meters. The global sweet spot is over 100 billion square meters. The conservative market revenue opportunity is $10 per square meter. The Key 2 Mobile RAN solution is less than the cost of commercial carpeting. The second vertical targeted market segment is the healthcare industry. The K2M patented architecture enables moving the cloud edge into hospital RANs. The mobile edge servers can support AI, AR and location industrial IOT up to 2 petaflops w/grid neutral energy consumption.

Competition

The competitive mobile (cellular) wireless indoor solutions today are delivered by either DAS or small cells or a combination of both. Both architectures are over 10 years old and as such highly commoditized. DAS was designed for outdoor stadium venues. Small cells were designed for single operator enterprises. There is also the problem of variable building sizes. The DAS solutions have difficulty scaling below 50,000 square meters and the small cells have difficulty scaling up above 10,000 square meters. DAS can be neutral host meaning support multiple operators simultaneously. Small cells cannot support multiple operators simultaneously. Neither can determine x, y, and z indoor mobile location continuously. The largest number of commercial buildings in the U.S. are between 10,000 and 50,000 square meters. This segment represents +4 billion square meters. This targeted market segment has only 2% indoor cellular platforms installed. The K2M platform is a neutral host solution which supports multiple operators simultaneously where small cells cannot. The K2M architecture is upgradeable to 5G access points (<6 GHz) where DAS and small cells are limited to LTE.

Key 2 Mobile Patents

Multi-standard in building mobile radio access network

Patent number: 9936363

Abstract: A multi-standard indoor mobile radio access network having a centralized device is provided. In one embodiment of the present invention, a centralized device is configured to transmit a wake-up signal to a wireless device once the wireless device has entered a service area, wherein the wake-up signal triggers the downloading and/or opening of an application on the wireless device configured to determine whether a 911 call has been made. If a 911 call has been made, the application transmits a notification signal to the centralized device. In response thereto, the centralized device transmit location information of the wireless device to an emergency responder. The centralized device also transmits a “ping” to the wireless device during predetermined periods of time in order to keep the application open and/or installed on the wireless device.

Date of Patent: April 3, 2018

Inventors: Patrick Diamond, Anthony Giraudo, John Shay

Multi-Standard In Building Mobile Radio Access Network

Publication number: 20160262113

Abstract: A multi-standard mobile radio access network for a building having a plurality of radio heads in communication with a centralized device is provided. In one embodiment of the present invention, each radio head is configured to transmit a plurality of test signals and to receive and measure reflections of the same (e.g., off of walls, ceilings, floors, etc.). Data associated with the test signals and the reflections (e.g., radio head IDs, transmittal and reception power levels, transmittal and reception times, angles of arrival, etc.) are then provided to the centralized device, where they are used to determine an RF power level for each radio head that minimizes interference with other radio heads and x-axis, y-axis, and/or z-axis locations of each radio head within the building.

Multi-standard in building mobile radio access network

Patent number: 9369171

Abstract: A multi-standard indoor mobile radio access network is provided. Preferred embodiments of the present invention operate in accordance with a plurality of radio heads and at least one gateway/router. In one embodiment of the present invention, each radio head is configured to use a signal received from a wireless device to detect a corresponding service provider. Each radio is also configured to detect a power level of the signal, as received. Data is then communicated to the gateway/router, including at least radio head identification numbers, z-axis information (e.g., as stored in each radio head, etc.), the channels used, service provider identifiers, and power levels (e.g., as received by each radio head). The gateway/router is then configured to use at least the power levels and z-axis information provided by the plurality of radio heads to determine a location (e.g., z-axis location, or floor) of the wireless device.
