Gopher Starts Working on 5G Radio Technology Architecture

Preparing for Next Generation IoT/Mobile Applications

San Diego, CA, Dec. 20, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NEWMEDIAWIRE -- Gopher Protocol Inc. (OTCQB: GOPH) ("Gopher”), a company specializing in the development of Internet of Things (IoT) and Artificial Intelligence enabled mobile technologies, including a global mesh network technology platform for both mobile and fixed solutions, announced today it has started working on implementing 5G radio into Gopher’s solutions architecture based on Gopher's private communication protocol, to prepare for the numerous future IoT use cases using 5G bandwidth. 

5G is the next generation of cellular and mobile/IoT networks and will be quickly expanding in the communication world. The standard is expected to allow Enhanced Mobile Broadband (eMBB), Ultra Reliable Low Latency Communications (URLLC), and Massive Machine Type Communications (mMTC). Enhanced Broadband is expected to be 10-100 times faster than the current LTE networks, and all three usage scenarios will allow for enhanced speed, connectivity and mobility to support billions of future mobile and IoT devices.

Gartner Research Company predicts more than 20 billion IoT devices to be in use globally by 2020. Gopher has started its work to make its radio system architecture compatible with 5G technology in order to enable Gopher's devices to communicate with its own and other IoT and mobile devices worldwide. Gopher technology platforms based on 5G will be highly scalable and energy efficient to power the expected steady grow of connected devices. Gopher will implement its 5G capability within all of its radio based devices, among them the Gopher’s patented Guardian Patch GEO tracking device and its Gopher Insight platform currently under development and planned for launch in early 2019.

"We join the world's Hi Tech leaders making our technology 5G compatible, preparing for the future. The 5G network is designed to connect much greater amounts of IoT and mobile devices than previous networks, whether it is a pet tracker or an autonomous vehicle data transceiver. This type of network is built to handle many different use cases, including commercial and consumer applications, governmental military/security and civilian agencies, robots and autonomous vehicles. The 5G network offers superior speed and better real-time responsiveness, and is designed to work differently on connected products that don't need a constant connection, like irrigation sensors for example. In addition, it enables wide bandwidth and huge data handling for constantly connected devices, like transceivers in drones or autonomous machines. Applications that require virtually lag-free connection like medical robotics, security/military drones and robotic cars will be able to communicate with each other in real time.

“Gopher plans to use a super high-frequency spectrum, which has shorter range but higher capacity. Then we will add another communication layer using our proprietary radio system, that is using lower frequency spectrum, in order to dramatically extend the range. With this approach, we are seeking to create a system that provides huge data handling over long range. One of the key advantages of our system is its capability to perform automatic frequency adjustments in order to overcome obstructions and interference issues, enabling efficient 5G communication across different use cases and greater distances,” said Danny Rittman, Gopher CTO.
