CellBounce Solves Massive 3G/CDMA Sunset Problem for Alarm Industry
Top security and home-automation execs back CellBounce, reportedly the only DIY solution for upgrading 3G/CDMA alarm panels without a truck roll.Read the Article on cepro.comRead the Article on cepro.com
3G networks will be sunsetted to make way for 4G, leaving 220 million 3G devices unable to connect, communicate or transact.
Affected devices include security systems, power meters, ATM’s, vending services, auto services like OnStar, HVAC and traffic control. Over a decade was spent installing these 3G modules in the field and now the industry has been given less than 3 years to replace them all. An impossible situation.
CellBounce’s plug-and-play solution upgrades 3G systems instantly, with no technician required, with much less costs, and without compromising speed or performance.
220M Devices Affected
Traditional upgrade solutions would require that trained technicians manually upgrade each and every 3G device, such as security systems, power meters, ATMs, vending machines, HVAC, and traffic controls, to name a few.
Cellbounce is in process of filing multiple patents in this space
A preliminary IP search found zero of what we intend to patent.
It will also make it very difficult for competitors if we are granted IP
This IP eliminates unwanted interference for networks to allow us to operate without interfering with their network that has sunsetted 3G and now operating at 4G
Patent defines how they will allow us to communicate on 3G even though they only hear from us on 4G

In 2001 I began a fruitful relationship working for Zensys and then with the
Z-Wave Alliance and its partners as the VP of sales for Zensys. The goal was to bring HA to the mass market and to strengthen our understanding of the technologies that deepen the connection between users, their devices and homes. I maintain a strong working relationship within the Home Automation community from security OEM’s to HA dealers and manufacturers.

What the Industry is Saying
Read the article on CEPro
“ADT says that more than half of its 7.2 million security panels use 3G cellular service today, mostly from AT&T, which sunsets the service in February 2022.
Let's say it costs ADT $200 in parts and labor to replace each radio (or panel). Multiply that by a conservative 3.7 million customers, and the bill could total some $740 million.”CEPro · March 21, 2019Analysis: ADT Pulse vs. Command and Control; 3G Sunset Doom as ‘Opportunity’
What the Industry is Saying
“A bigger issue has to do with the impending 3G/CDMA sunset, which will kill cellular service for millions of security panels that use cellular for their main alarm communications or for back-up if IP or POTS (plain old telephone service) fails.”CEPro · March 21, 2019Analysis: 3G Sunset Doom as ‘Opportunity’
“A good chunk of ADT Pulse products utilize AT&T's 3G network, which sunsets in February 2022. Those products don't support IP communications for alarm signaling, so if the customer doesn't have a POTS line, their security service is dead ... unless ADT replaces the radios at a substantial cost of time and labor.”CEPro · March 21, 2019Analysis: 3G Sunset Doom as ‘Opportunity’
“Will ADT make an effort to swap out these radios in advance of the sunset – it’s still three years away – and prolong the life of these legacy systems and the Icontrol platform that drives them?
Or will ADT move to replace the aging panels with Command and Control, and be rid of the legacy systems once and for all?”CEPro · March 21, 2019Analysis: 3G Sunset Doom as ‘Opportunity’
