New "pCell" Technology Could Bring 5G Service to Your 4G Phone

An anonymous reader writes "It's one of those elegant inventions that only surface maybe once a decade. If it works at scale, according to IEEE Spectrum, it could "radically change the way wireless networks operate, essentially replacing today’s congested cellular systems with an entirely new architecture that combines signals from multiple distributed antennas to create a tiny pocket of reception around every wireless device." This scheme could allow each device to use the full bandwidth of spectrum available to the network, which would "eliminate network congestion and provide faster, more reliable data connections." And the best part? It's compatible with 4G LTE phones, which means it could be deployed today."
