Employing the company’s CMMB (Converged Mobile Multimedia Broadcasting) digital broadcasting technology with two L-band satellites, AsiaStar and AfriStar, located over Asia, Africa, Middle East, and Southern Europe reaching 70% of the world, 6 billion people, 140 countries, 1 billion cars, CMMB Vision delivers Internet data and multimedia content to vehicular and mobile devices with unprecedented efficiency and economies of scale. The CMMB delivery method bypasses the current congested 4G/LTE mobile networks to reach users anytime anywhere with virtually unlimited data and content at very low data cost. The company has in place the required infrastructure and ecosystem solutions to launch services. It is starting with China, where it has entered into an exclusive agreement with the Chinese government, and will then expand services to other regions.
CMMB Vision’s patented technology utilizes one-to-many mobile broadcasting methods to deliver Internet data to vehicles and mobile users just like free-to-air TV – delivering programming to mass-market viewers, without data limits and without streaming costs. CMMB Vision amplifies that with a powerful geostationary satellite transmitting with 40 MHz of the most desirable mobile radio spectrum L-band to achieve vast coverage of the service over unlimited numbers of users. The system further integrates with existing cellular networks for converged and interactive services to form a new-generation holistic “Internet-plus” delivery platform, which can exponentially expand Internet delivery in scale and in scope. Users can now readily access a vast array of content including live-TV/audio channels, thousands of movies, videos, songs, and games automatically streamed to them from the Cloud without the bottlenecks, download delays, and data charges typical of terrestrial mobile networks via the CMMB satellite-broadcasting network, which at the same time seamlessly integrates with existing mobile network services wherever available and required. Countless new applications requiring big-data, real-time interactive access, and ubiquitous/universal coverage will now be possible, enabling billions of people whether in bandwidth-stricken urban cities or remote and underdeveloped areas to be connected to modern Internet services.
The Company has developed end-to-end infrastructure to support these services. Through AsiaStar and Afristar satellites, CMMB Vision has the only mobile broadcasting geostationary satellite network covering China, Asia, and India, and operating with 40 MHz of owned L-band spectrum. A recent valuation report appraised the AsiaStar L-band spectrum in China alone at ~ USD 4.0 billion. AsiaStar will be superseded by a next-generation state-of-the-art Boeing satellite, which is expected to launch, with a 100-fold increase in transmission power. CMMB Silkwave has developed the OFDM-based CMMB protocol that integrates satellite reception with 4G/LTE function for unified broadcast-telecom connectivity. Together they form the CMMB platform, which bypasses the conventional mobile network and is capable of streaming massive IP data content to an infinite number of user devices over vast geographical regions and supports unlimited users simultaneously, while seamlessly integrating with existing mobile cellular services. CMMB Vision has acquired Dish Network’s affiliate, Dish-HD Asia to complete the service platform with turnkey capabilities. It has assembled a management team comprising principal developers for OFDMA-LTE, WiMax, and TD-SCDMA and seasoned industry professionals.
We have put in place a technology infrastructure for China and the rest of Asia, which includes the exclusive use of a 105E geostationary orbital slot covering the region, and an operating digital broadcasting satellite, AsiaStar – as well as the groundbreaking converged mobile broadcasting technology CMMB. We have procured a secondary satellite, AfriStar, exclusive use of the 40 MHz L-band spectrum and a 21E geostationary orbital slot covering Africa, Middle East and Southern Europe.
