What is SoMAX?
SoMAX (Self-configured Organic Multiple Access) is a communication protocol that achieves a full mesh-like coverage with an intelligent wire and wireless subscriber relay mechanism. It uniquely provides mobile voice, data, and video applications with coverage similar to 4G/LTE base stations and throughput similar to fiber ADSL and cable networks for broadband applications. It also provides fixed and mobile IoT services for narrowband applications. Within SoMAX network coverage, users enjoy true mobility in highly dynamic network infrastructure: roaming across large coverage areas to increase capacity, delivering throughput at very low transmitting power, and offering users a synchronized download and upload experience.
SoMAX is a true MANET (Mobile Ad Hoc Network). It can adopt any bandwidth, transmission, or code modulation technique and provide optimized results under various network conditions and available resources. For SoMAX deployment, we can use any radio technology and modulation/coding technologies such as 4G/LTE, fiber, and ADSL as the backhaul option(s) while the device is also SoMAX enabled. All data is divided into individual packets and sent via Internet backhauls.
Once an adequate user base is established, after reaching the critical mass, many unrelated applications and enhancements, as well as systems designed to provide smartphone and/or Internet services beyond the initial planning, can also be achieved by SoMAX technology: Additional applications: real-time tracking, monitoring, and positioning of enhanced performance of cellular networking technologies; inventory management, RFID system, and other intranet applications; distribution of monitoring systems, access, and network resources and functions. Besides, the technology used at SoMAX essentially delivers secure data transmission for further protection through encryption.
While SoMAX builds on the level of a telecommunication base that is scalable, it also proves to be particularly well-suited to enhance the performance of future cellular deployment. SoMAX is considered to have not been finalized yet. Its complementary technology is already sufficiently advanced in the original 3G standard of UMTS.
