Edgewater Wireless WiFi3™ technology is designed to solve critical issues for WiFi and wireless networks – interference and high-density. WiFi3™ is the only wireless technology in the world to offer multiple, concurrent channels of transmit and receive from a single WiFi radio. Edgewater’s next generation wireless technology is positioned to revolutionize wireless network design and deployment beyond the unlicensed wireless spectrum through to OFDM applications and 5G. WiFi3™ is backed by over 24 patents and offers a suite of access point products as well as OEM licensing opportunities for select partners.
“Fiterator concentrates on small cohorts of early-stage companies to give them the biggest possible impact.” said Scott Brown, Managing Director of the CableLabs UpRamp™ program “UpRamp™ conducted a global search and review of forward-thinking technology companies we believe will provide tremendous value to the cable industry. Edgewater Wireless is doing something truly innovative in Wi-Fi hardware and will provide innovative solutions for the $500 Billion cable industry.
Edgewater’s WiFi3™ powered technology is the best Wi-Fi solution for carriers, service providers and systems integrators to address the evolving issues of interference, capacity and high-density which is stretching WiFi to its breaking point.
