Israeli startup Celliboost has developed and begun marketing secure mobile broadband technology for rugged terrain. The technology is based on a standalone mobile system that uses ordinary mobile infrastructure for fast transmission of large-volume landline-quality high-resolution data, audio, and video communications.
The Celliboost system – already being used in Mexico and Chile — is designed for communications in rural and open areas. It is suitable for militaries, security and homeland security organizations, law enforcement, and emergency services, as well as telecommunications companies, such as radio and television stations.
“The communications world is moving forward, providing faster communications speeds, but demand from consumers is always higher than what the technology offers,” says Celliboost founder and CEO Alon Dayan. “Consumers want to send more data files faster and get a continuous communications experience when they send HD-quality video, messages, status updates, and location and other data. Celliboost’s vision is to use innovative technology to close the gap between supply and demand in communications. We will shortly announce other measures to realize this vision.”
The Israeli technology says it offers a response to an existing need in broadband mobile communications in all types of terrain and all kinds of mobile coverage – from 3G, through GSM, to LTE. The platform allows the simultaneous use of up to four mobile channels, independent of the mobile operator, and supports two operating methods – bonding and load balancing.
Celliboost was founded in late 2015 by Dayan, who serves as CEO of the company and as an executive at Celliboost’s parent company, L1-Systems. Dayan, a communications engineer by training, previously served as a marketing manager at Elbit Systems Land and C4I in Mexico and Central America. The development of Celliboost’s system was led by Ronen Angel, who serves as CTO of the company.
