Improving OFDM Packet Processing for a Better Wireless Experience

Latest Innovation in Packet Processing Adds to Companys 20+ patents in WiFi and Wireless Technology

October 19, 2017, Ottawa, Canada – Edgewater Wireless Systems Inc (YFI; TSX.V), the manufacturer of multi-channel WiFi3™ technology for high-density WiFi and wireless, is pleased to announce the company has been awarded U.S. Patent No. 9,722,849 from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), which is a patent continuation that further adds to the company’s patent family focused on tracking gain variation In Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) systems. Our latest innovation in OFDM improves signal to noise ratio of wireless signals by applying novel algorithms for processing symbols within data packets and enhances Quality of Service and user experience in multi-channel WiFi and wireless systems.

“Wireless Access Points powered by WiFi3 Edgewater Wireless chipsets and innovative radio cards are designed to use the unlicensed RF spectrum more efficiently –  We offer the only WiFi solution using a proven standard to concurrently transmit and receive multiple channels from the same radio. We’re improving the wireless user experience by improving how we use the unlicensed spectrum.” said Duane Anderson, CTO and Founder of Edgewater Wireless. “In High Density (HD) WiFi networks, the biggest issues are interference and capacity – solving these issues typically this means adding access points to the network which not only adds cost, but actually amplifies interference! The true stress test of HD WiFi performance is the ability to support more users at the highest possible performance with the fewest number of access points. Our latest innovation in OFDM packet processing has broader applications beyond WiFi3 to multi-channel wireless and more.”

According to the Global Web Index – the average digital consumer has 3.64 WiFi-enabled devices; – smart phones, tablets and laptops – more devices per user is creating massive demand for data and connectivity mainly due to high-bandwidth data applications like video or latency sensitive services such as voice over WiFi (VoWiFI). Edgewater’s multi-channel WiFi3 AP architecture provides the highest possible WiFi system performance and highest channel density in wireless today.  Edgewater Wireless’ enhanced Automatic Gain Control capabilities ensure the best performance possible when users connect with multiple devices using WiFi3-powered access points.

Backed by over 20 patents, Edgewater’s WiFi3™ is the best solution for in high-density WiFi applications. Edgewater’s patented technology mitigates adjacent and co-channel interference to enable multiple, concurrent channels of transmit and receive from a single WiFi standards-compliant radio.  Delivering the highest channel density in the industry means fewer access points to deliver the highest Quality of Service (QoS) for users.  For more information on High-Density WiFi solutions and OEM packages, visit:  www.edgewaterwireless.com or http://www.aera.io/
