The technology, which could potentially succeed LTE, provides every user with their own dedicated wifi stream, ensuring that they have access to high speeds without having to share the bandwidth with others. This, Perlman says, will reduce the number of dropped calls and at the same time provide high-speed downloads.
"PCell delivers on the long-sought dream of ubiquitous, fast Internet, with the reliability and consistency previously only achievable through a wired connection. pCell is effectively mobile fiber," said Perlman in a statement.
At present if one were to stand in a congested area, the signal sent out by the nearest cell phone tower is shared with everybody else in range. This means that if there are too many people on that network it will cause interference, resulting in slower services. PCell will take advantage of this interference and will combine the transmitted signals from different pCell transmitters, giving each person their own dedicated "personal cells."
According to Perlman, the technology is ready-to-use with iPhone 5s and 5c, Samsung Galaxy S4, LTE dongles, and MiFi device. With LTE devices, it will run them on the pCell network and if there area does not have this technology will revert back to conventional cellular coverage.

"They invariably bring in experts who say it doesn't really work," he said. "I am showing them a demo, but they remain convinced that it's something else."
