Edgewater’s Wi-Fi Spectrum Slicing: Powering the Wi-Fi Future

Dual Channel Wi-Fi™ joins Upstream OpenWrt targets $12.9 billion Consumer (home) market1

OTTAWA, Ontario--()--Edgewater Wireless Systems Inc. (YFI; TSX.V) (OTCQB: KPIFF), the industry leader in Wi-Fi Spectrum Slicing technology for residential and commercial markets, announces that Dual Channel Wi-Fi™ has been accepted to the upstream OpenWrt repository. This acceptance represents a significant milestone for Edgewater and CableLabs® in promoting the emerging Dual Channel Wi-Fi standard and Edgewater’s Wi-Fi Spectrum Slicing approach, to create even more channels. The primary OpenWrt code stream will now include the Dual Channel Wi-Fi capability going forward.

Be at the Front: Join the Wi-Fi Spectrum Slicing revolution

Crowded with a multitude of new devices, homes, offices and public areas, the need to optimize video and data applications has never been more critical. Wi-Fi Spectrum Slicing offers breakthrough performance; slicing available spectrum in to multiple channels and opening up capacity for latency-sensitive applications. Edgewater's groundbreaking MCSR™ silicon solutions and IP licensing offer device manufacturers and chip companies a quick path to the $12.9 billion home market2.

“The upstreaming of the Dual Channel Wi-Fi feature by the OpenWrt community is a major milestone that will help drive the adoption of Edgewater’s advanced multi-channel Wi-Fi Spectrum Slicing approach,” Said Eric Smith, VP Product for Edgewater Wireless. “Additionally, our newly launched tutorial demonstrates a real-world implementation of the Dual Channel Wi-Fi feature powered by Edgewater's MCSR™ hardware. It's a new, repeatable example for thousands of Linux developers around the globe -- highlighting the power of Edgewater’s revolutionary Wi-Fi Spectrum Slicing approach."

A revolutionary approach to alleviating jittery video and laggy gaming experiences, Dual Channel Wi-Fi enables one or more downlink-only data channels in concert with a standard bi-directional channel. Fully compatible with Edgewater’s MCSR™, Dual Channel Wi-Fi unlocks unused spectrum to reduce contention and latency while increasing airtime utilization dramatically. Originally conceptualized by CableLabs and 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, including residential and enterprise applications globally.

With over 1,681 developers3, 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 Dual Channel Wi-Fi™ code is now available in the 19.07 branch of OpenWrt at www.openwrt.org
