We provide secure airtime, dedicated channels, internet network resources and that's just the beginning.
FCC Licensed Spectrum
Cornerstone SMR began by aggregating FCC licenses operating on 220 MHz that now comprise 80% of coverage of the contiguous U.S. Clients utilize the company’s channels to transmit wirelessly over its secure and private communications channels.
Voice and data, including telemetry, is transmitted over the Cornerstone wireless infrastructure.
Most recently, the company created a revolutionary digital protocol for IoT (Internet of Things) called ERICA (Enhanced Range Communications Architecture) that is designed to be deployed as part of a vertically integrated network system connected to a brand new generation of sensor technology.
The company has historically marketed radios and airtime as specialized mobile radio (SMR) communication solutions. Mobile radio communication solutions include voice and data dispatch services for fleet operators, mobile service businesses, utility companies, delivery and courier services, and taxi and limousine services. Voice dispatch service incorporates push-to-talk mobile and portable radio units. Data dispatch services available include applications such as fleet location and dispatch message tracking, mobile data terminals, AVL services, and various data telemetry service.
Cornerstone SMR utilizes its network of 220 MHz licenses providing 80% coverage of the contiguous United States for varied uses. Of particular note are the growing number of power company clients that lease the Cornerstone channels to connect with their subscribers via a smart grid network. This private, secure digital wireless network provides advanced metering, demand response and system automation activity. The Cornerstone association with power company providers prompted the company to initiate an advanced research and development program that has produced its revolutionary ERICA network system, which is destined to become a leader in industrial IoT communications. Construction of the prototype field modules and base stations has been completed. These units represent a quantum leap in developing ultra compact technology, enabling new exciting options for deployment that was not previously feasible. The MAC layer (media access control), which is the command and control architecture is currently under testing and refinement.
Power companies throughout the country currently utilize Cornerstone channels for their digital smart grid applications.
