Facebook has open-sourced the OpenCellular files including schematic, layout, CAD files and software as part of the project group to help accelerate creation of an open new ecosystem where new ideas can be tested.
OpenCellular Grant Program
OpenCellular Grants (OCG) is a program to fund, promote and accelerate the non-commercial development and deployment of OpenCellular (OC) equipment in rural areas where access to cellular is limited. The successful development and adoption of OC in rural communities could lead to significantly more people gaining access to cellular service.
The OCG grant program is specifically designed to address this opportunity.
