Polorized Data Transmission for Cell Phones & Wireless Data Transmission

The following problems exist with the current technological capabilities of wireless

• Limited amount of data transmission
• Limited utilization of the available radio spectrum
• High consumer costs

A solution to these problems is to increase the bandwidth of data transmission through

polarized data transmission, where the increase in data transmission is high enough to

allow a cellular telephone system to transmit over air television programming.

This invention is most effective, with an increased throughput of at least 10 times the

current data rate, when applied to a stationary user. When a mobile phone is equipped

with gyroscopes, a compass, and ball antenna, the user experiences increased data


The polarized transmission technology is currently used for satellite communications.

The satellite TV uses a 90 degree polarization, whereas the data transmission requires

the polarization of data streams every few degrees.

Polarizing radio waves increases the volume of data they are able to carry. For

example, voice data can be carried at assigned frequency and polarization. The rest of

the data is carried at the same frequency, but with different polarization.

A special antenna design equipped with filters is required to receive and send the

polarized data transmission. The design includes giving specific polarization angles to

all cellular transmissions to the receiver; these angles need to be decoded. The

antenna design is a hollow sphere, filled with radiating spikes, connected to the

receiver. The inside of the sphere is filled with hundreds of filaments radiating in three

dimensions (3D) from the center to the covering of the antenna or to the outside of the

antenna skin. The antenna sphere is approximately the size of a golf ball. To receive

data, the antenna requires dedicated circuits to turn on the correct filaments. To

increase the size or the length of the receiver antenna, the filaments can be made

"fuzzy". The method selects correct filaments to turn on in the call setup portion of the

transmission. If fuzzy antennas are not selected, then hexagonal or nonagonal cylinder

is selected for each filament. Hexagonal or non-agonal cylinder design helps in

sectorization of data transmissions.

The antenna in the receiver requires a considerable amount of designed intelligence

and utilizes the following information:
• The polarization being used
• The frequencies
• The time slots
• Which filaments to turn off or return to different frequencies. The system must

protocol that would carry additional information needed for data transmission. The

protocol must specify:
• Polarization angles used for data transmission
• Which time slots to use
• Whether a time...
