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 presents the idea and importance of WiFi spectrum slicing and how Edgewater technology applies spectrum slicing to its WiFi solutions.
Network slicing is increasingly being adopted within the mobile communications environment, as a means to improve service performance and flexibility. Using it’s unique patents, Edgewater Wireless takes Network Slicing a step further with Spectrum Slicing and is already seeing the significant benefits using this approach within the WiFi Spectrum.
WiFi Spectrum Slicing for Critical Data Deliverywill be presented by Edgewater Wireless Vice President of Product Eric Smith, who has the rare talent for explaining complex technical concepts in layman’s terms. In last month’s Edgewater webinar, Optimizing Spectrum in Dense Environments, Smith used dodgeball analogies to describe single-channel vs. muli-channel WiFi and the problem of contending with other devices for a WiFi signal. The webinar was well-received and the company fielded several requests for additional online presentations.
“The demand for WiFi is increasing dramatically, even in residential settings, which causes high-traffic, high-density conditions. This drastically reduces both signal quality and the ability to identify problems in a timely manner,” said Smith. “‘Slicing’ WiFi enables optimal and simultaneous use of channels in the WiFi spectrum, reducing latency in the delivery of applications such as streaming video and gaming, and clearing spectrum space for essential services like signal testing and security.”
