Edgewater’s new patent covers techniques that reduce error rates, improve throughput in multichannel receivers
OTTAWA–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/LowLatency?src=hash” target=”_blank”gt;#LowLatencylt;/agt;–Edgewater Wireless Systems Inc. (YFI; TSX.V) (OTCQB: KPIFF), the industry leader in innovative WiFi Multi-Channel Single Radio (MCSR™) technology for residential and commercial markets, announced today that it has been issued a patent by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) for its Automatic Gain Control (AGC) for a multichannel/wideband communications system. AGC enables Edgewater’s MCSR networks to deliver more effective, error-free reception and more efficient, data-rich transmission of multi-channel signals.
The company has more than 24 patents in its intellectual property portfolio, created to protect its unique MCSR approach to solving the problems of substandard WiFi and wireless performance in high-density residential and commercial environments. Edgewater’s patented techniques mitigate interference and result in reduced errors and re-transmissions in sending and receiving content – reducing lag or latency. Low latency or the amount of data going through within a set period of time, is critical for applications such as HD video, streaming and gaming. And with the inevitable increasing number of wireless devices and with the launch of 5G globally, the challenges of density will only get worse.
“Edgewater Wireless is pleased the USPTO has awarded this patent further protecting our unique approach,” said Andrew Skafel, President and CEO of Edgewater Wireless. “The continuing growth of our IP portfolio has built a strong foundation for enhancing shareholder value and we’re pleased with our revenue growth exiting Q3’19 as we realize the value of our innovations. We’ve continued to ramp with our current customers and have worked to diversify our customer base. We’re proud of our talented team which continues to evolve and improve our products.”
