Britain's KloudPaD, a mobile electronics convergence brand, is ready with its non-GSM based wireless open phone memmoo network for consumers in Kerala.
This was announced at the Emerging Kerala investor meet that concluded at Kochi Friday by the inventors - two brothers - who hail from Thiruvananthapuram but are now based in Britain.
"This is the world's first social network mobile phone without a GSM architecture and can be operated at one tenth cost of existing mobile networks. This is an open network and is called the memmoo network," said Aromal Jayaraj, co-founder and director of KloudPaD.
This network can be enabled on all mobile handsets and it operates using a combination of FM radio and wireless radio frequency.
Their mentor for this is Austrian professor P. Rapagic, at the University of Greenwich in Britain, who co-discovered the fax modem.
"The guiding principle in this is one world, one network. There is no need for connecting with the nearest mobile tower, as seen in present mobile operators. All one needs to do is create a memmoo profile and soon you will know where one is present, who are the other memmoo profile holders and can interact with them with no cost," said Jayaraj to IANS.
The two brothers arrived as part of a 45-member UK delegation for the three-day event that got over Friday.
They have decided to set up operations at the Start Up Village in Kochi by setting up a product development and R&D centre.
"This technology is at present used by the US Military and we are bringing this out in the commercial market for the first time. It is a network of the people, by the people and for the people," said Jayaraj.
