Edgewater Wireless Unveils Revolutionary Dual Channel Wi-Fi™ Code to Opensource

Edgewater Wireless Systems Inc. (YFI; TSX.V) (OTCQB: KPIFF) the industry leader in Wi-Fi Spectrum Slicing technology for residential and commercial markets, today officially unveiled powerful new Dual Channel Wi-Fi™ software for the global Linux OpenWrt development community. This work has been done in conjunction with CableLabs®’ plan to drive global adoption of Dual Channel Wi-Fi™ for more efficient and reliable connectivity.

“This is a transformational time for the global Wi-Fi industry,” said Eric Smith, VP of Product for Edgewater Wireless. “We look forward to continued collaboration with the global Linux community to further drive adoption of Dual Channel Wi-Fi™, and Edgewater’s MCSR™ powered residential gateways, routers, and set-top boxes.”

A revolutionary approach to alleviating jittery video and laggy gaming experiences, Dual Channel Wi-Fi enables one or more downlink-only data channels in addition to a standard bi-directional channel. Compatible with all Wi-Fi releases, including Edgewater’s MCSR™, Dual Channel Wi-Fi unlocks the unused spectrum to dramatically reduce contention and latency while increasing airtime utilization. Developed for various Access Points and client platforms, including set-top boxes, TVs and soon, gaming platforms and iPads, Dual Channel Wi-Fi can be implemented wherever traditional single-channel Wi-Fi struggles with contention – in residential and enterprise applications globally.

“Releasing the Dual Channel Wi-Fi code to opensource is integral to our strategy in driving the adoption of the emerging standard, and for driving demand of our multi-channel, single radio MCSR™ silicon solutions,” said Andrew Skafel, President and CEO of Edgewater Wireless. “Dual Channel Wi-Fi marks the first declaration by a global standards body that one channel is not enough. Emerging standards like this are a strong validation of our approach – Opensource Linux brings global scale to our technology in the multi-billion dollar residential Wi-Fi market1, and accelerates licensing opportunities with global silicon manufacturers.”

Edgewater’s Wi-Fi Spectrum Slicing represents the next generation of Wi-Fi technology, breaking the industry’s reliance on single channel radio architecture and enabling multiple concurrent channels of transmit and receive from a single Wi-Fi standards compaliant radio.

With over 1,681 developers2, the Linux community represents one of the largest global software development organizations, and the OpenWrt stream is a Linux operating system used by devices such as routers, smartphones, and residential gateways.

The precious oil is extracted from the seeds of prickly pear cactus plant. After taking out the seeds from the fruits, they are adequately dried and then cold pressed to obtain the oil. Indeed, the prickly seed oil is quite expensive.

This means it will take tons of these seeds to produce just one b...
