Unlicensed-Band spectrum is a national asset.
Let’s use it to everyone’s benefit.
With the explosive uptake of mobile services and computing, currently there is a tremendous impetus in removing any physical and economical barriers to the mass adoption of such services. The most recent example is Google “project fi”, in which a new business model is used to offer mobile services at a lower subscription cost and with a better network performance. This enables companies such as Google to better serve the growing mobile markets with their Internet-based service offerings, rather than use connectivity as the only source of revenue.

To fulfill the vision of low-cost, high-quality mobile services, new spectrum in large quantities is required. Since all suitable licensed spectrum has already been allocated to the few traditional mobile operators, new service providers are turning their attention to unlicensed band, and more specifically the 5GHz segment (known as UNII in NA), as almost all of the available 500MHz is underutilized.

While the allocated 5GHz spectrum meets current and future expected performance and capacity, current technologies, mainly WiFi, do not offer a good support infrastructure to provide a carrier-grade network to compete against exiting mobile networks. WiFi was originally designed to provide wireless Internet connectivity only. While there have been many attempts to make it look and function more like a cellular system, most of the improvements have been on the access side, providing peak data rates in excess of 3Gbits/s, but unfortunately failing to provide good security, mobility and support of services with an acceptable quality (QoS).
Achieve arbitrary radio access within a single mobile core network

nCore delivers the optimum mobile network combining good features of licensed network
such as LTE with desirable attributes of unlicensed spectrum such as WiFi.

1- Use WiFi as the best access technology for unlicensed band operation since:

2- Use LTE as the best core (backend) technology since LTE core (EPC) is holistically designed to provide services with:

The combination of WiFi access technology and LTE core network enables any service provider to compete, on equal bases, with existing mobile operators, cost effectively without the need for licensed band.
Open up mobile services for many players

nCore helps service providers to offer and differentiate their mobile services, lowering phone bills and creating new businesses.

Enterprise Private Networks
With nCore solution, business communications service providers can offer premium mobile services to their clients utilizing existing IT networks over WiFi.
Public Networks / Small Cells
nCore delivers 'WiFi Small Cells' where unlicensed band is used to support high-capacity small cells fully integrated with the current LTE networks.
Professional Mobile
Enhancement of mobile networks in public safety, oil and gas or manufacturing sectors such as Tetra can be achieved having full features of LTE
Secure IoT Platform
nCore technology enables a secure IoT platform to support of LTE network over multiple short-distance radios such as WiFi, Bluetooth and ZigBee.
About nCore

nCore Communications is a privately held next generation solution provider led by an experienced team of wireless communication systems headquartered in San Diego, California.


Dr. Behzad Mohebbi, CEO & President

Before co-founding nCore Communications, Behzad led a product management group at Qualcomm’s research division. Prior to Qualcomm, Behzad was the CTO of his first startup, Nextivity, where he developed a revolutionary technology known as CelFi. Previously, Behzad worked on various cellular communications systems in large companies such as Motorola, Fujitsu, and small start ups such as Morpho Technologies. Behzad has contributed a number of features to cellular systems, with the most notable one known as SSTD (Site Selection Transmit Diversity). Behzad has over 20 years of experience in the wireless industry and has more than 70 patents. Behzad earned a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from the University of Leeds and was a Post-Doctoral Fellow at several UK universities.

Masa Nakamura, VP of Business Development

Before co-founding nCore Communications with Behzad, Masa was working on vehicular communication systems for major car manufacturers. Previously, he co-founded and served as the head of sales and marketing for two startups including Transilica, one of the earliest Bluetooth system-on-chip company that was acquired by Microtune, now a part of CSR. Earlier, he managed the five branches of Uniden’s sales operation in China. He received MS from Stanford and BS from the University of Tokyo.
