Wi-Fi Spectrum Slicing Licensing by Edgewater accelerates time to market for global chipmakers with latest innovations
OTTAWA, Canada-- September 05, 2019 -- Edgewater Wireless Systems Inc., the industry leader in Wi-Fi Spectrum Slicing technology for residential and commercial markets, today announced the launch of its Licensing program including access to its breakthrough IP and expertise.
With over 3-billion Wi-Fi enabled devices1 added over the last 12-months, and ever more Wi-Fi enabled entertainment and IoT devices emerging in the residential market, the demand for Wi-Fi device airtime is growing at a frantic pace. As an established innovator in high-density Wi-Fi applications, Edgewater’s groundbreaking technology is poised to enable similar leaps in the ever densifying home market by licensing Wi-Fi Spectrum Slicing to established chip vendors with massive residential market share.
Edgewater’s patented approach and expertise will enable silicon manufacturers to implement Wi-Fi Spectrum Slicing on their platforms, dramatically reducing time to market for the next phase of residential Wi-Fi innovation -- high-density capacity management.
“With the emergence of applications like CableLabs’ Dual Channel Wi-Fi™ standard and the enormous growth in Wi-Fi enabled devices, demand for Edgewater’s Wi-Fi Spectrum Slicing technology has been growing,” said Andrew Skafel, President and CEO of Edgewater Wireless. “Licensing our valuable IP and expertise provides a scalable platform for growth and maximizes shareholder returns with a high-margin line of business which adds to our other high growth lines of business in both the OEM and Solutions markets.”
The multi-year investments required for silicon-based innovation can be significantly reduced by leveraging Edgewater’s breakthrough IP and expertise.
“Long term licensing partnerships will allow Wi-Fi Spectrum Slicing to become the ubiquitous silicon solution for all markets, and accelerate time to market in an environment where the density of clients is currently outpacing legacy single-channel Wi-Fi technology,” said Eric Smith, VP of Product for Edgewater Wireless. “Moreover, revenue produced from licensing our current technology provides a firm base from which Edgewater will continue to innovate.”
Edgewater will be demonstrating the latest Wi-Fi Spectrum Slicing technology at the upcoming WBA Global Congress in Frankfurt from September 30, 2019 to October 3, 2019. For more details, click here.
