Google Reportedly Building A Super-Secret Wireless Network

By Gizbot Bureau

    Google is reportedly building a secret version of wireless network for its Mountain View campus. The rumors surrounding the construction of a wireless network by Google seem to have confirmed by Steven Crowley, an engineer. The engineer confirmed the construction as he saw FCC filings.

    The reports in the FCC filings state that the search giant is supposed to use 200 "user devices" and 50 base stations during its experimental period of building the wireless network. The network is said to operate in 2.5GHz band of two portions each. One part of the spectrum in the 2.5GHz band is owned by Clearwire.


    It is a small scale network run by Google and is not expected to have much range. The experimental wireless network may not be compatible with most of the Android and iOS smartphones of the present generation. However, its frequency density studies show it can work efficiently in dense urban areas.

    Earlier there were rumors that Google is looking for a possible partnership with Dish Network and Dish Network was in a thought to buy Clearwire. Google had tried its best to keep its wireless attempt a secret, but failed. This however, is only an experimental phase and there are no indications that it will grow further at its Mountain View campus.

    Google had taken a crucial step in planning its own wireless carrier. The company also plans to bring free Wi-Fi access in New York City, with its starting point at Chelsea, where its East Coast Head Quarters is stationed.
