CoverageCo is using the latest generation of small-cell technology to enter markets
that have previously been unserved by cellular carriers. Our energy efficient deployment
localizes cellular coverage and simultaneously support both CDMA and GSM roaming partners.
CoverageCo is a subsidiary of Vanu, Inc. We are using the latest generation of Vanu
products, the CompactRAN. The CompactRAN is a complete cellular base station in a sealed
all-weather outdoor enclosure the size of a ream of paper. It is energy efficient and
capable of supporting both CDMA and GSM technologies at the same time, using software
defined radios and Internet Protocol. It is software upgradeable to future technologies,
and it can use an Internet connection for backhaul to our core network.
The greatest challenge to providing coverage in rural areas is an economic one. The
advantages that the CompactRAN offers allow us to enter markets that have previously
been unserved by cellular carriers. Our typical deployment strategy is to mount the
CompactRAN on utility poles along the roadways, providing coverage where it's needed.
We offer our services to existing cellular carriers through roaming agreements, allowing
their subscribers to roam onto our network with their existing handsets. Any applicable
roaming charges are handled by the subscriber's existing cellular carrier.
