The WhiteSpace Alliance (WSA) ®, a global industry organization enabling sharing of underutilized spectrum, today announced that Cognitive Systems Corporation has joined the organization.

Cognitive Systems is a developer of custom silicon for high performance processing of radio signals from the edge to the cloud. Based in Waterloo, Canada, the company recently emerged from stealth mode to announce its platform for detecting, visualizing and responding to changes in wireless signals. Cognitive’s technology has broad application in areas such as motion detection and physical security, device identification and cybersecurity, as well as spectrum monitoring and control.

“Our integrated, secure sensor-to-cloud architecture provides an efficient infrastructure for high resolution management of spectrum,” said Dr. Nebu John Mathai, Director of Strategic Initiatives and Advanced Engineering at Cognitive Systems. “Leveraging WhiteSpace Alliance’s interoperability specifications and working with other WSA members will help us address a broad range of deployment opportunities.”

Cognitive’s platform combines economical sensor technology with high performance signal processing at the edge, enabling cost-effective, large scale implementations. The multi-processor design supports secure processing throughout the vertical stack, as well as sophisticated back-end analytics.

“We are seeing significant moves toward spectrum usage measurements, opportunistic spectrum utilization and spectrum efficiency around the world,” said Dr. Apurva N. Mody, Chairman of WhiteSpace Alliance. "Availability of flexible, powerful silicon solutions such as those from Cognitive Systems will help expand the intelligent use of spectrum to enable the Internet of Everything.”

WhiteSpace Alliance, developer of Wi-FAR™ and WSAConnect™ interoperability specifications, has a following of more than 200 major commercial, academic, government and regulatory organizations around the world. WSA member organizations benefit from access to technical specifications that decrease development costs; expanded access to global markets, regulators and government agencies; and ongoing marketing support at no additional cost. Consumers benefit from a multi-vendor, interoperable ecosystem that brings down the overall cost of broadband access.
