ISM868 bands that are located adjacent to the GSM 850/900 frequency
My initial investigations and enquiries indicate that this should be
possible by creative programming of the baseband processor in many
models of phones. The trick, as I suspect you well know, is the
difficulty in getting the information and tools required to reprogram
I am now in a position to potentially fund further work on this.
So, as the open-source group with the most experience reprogramming
baseband radios, what is the feasibility of creating a
proof-of-concept using the types of phones you already work with to
send and receive arbitrary data packets without reliance on a cell
tower (even for time synchronisation)?
I know there are a lot of constraints and problems, but I am most
interested in creative solutions that can get us to a working
prototype, however crude, that can be used to demonstrate the
feasibility of what I am proposing.
If this discussion is off-topic here, I am happy to hold the
conversation at the serval-project-developers google group, but I am
equally comfortable with it continuing here.
Thanks in advance,
