Multiple Tier-1 Service Providers and OEMs request engineering samples of Edgewater’s newest platform; highlighting Growing Demand for its Next Generation Solutions

August 21, 2023 – Ottawa, Canada – Edgewater Wireless Systems Inc. (TSXV: YFI) (OTC: KPIFF), the industry leader in Wi-Fi Spectrum Slicing technology for residential and enterprise markets, is pleased to announce strong demand from multiple Tier-1 service providers and OEMs supported by requests for engineering samples of Edgewater’s cutting-edge MLX 488 WiFi7 Spectrum Slicing platform. Edgewater is currently undertaking focused engineering efforts and is targeting delivery in Q2 2024.

Engineering samples represent beta editions of integrated circuits intended for compatibility, validation or demonstration purposes. They are commonly provided to original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and Service Providers before the official chip launch, facilitating production development or showcasing innovative features and functionality.

Edgewater’s MLX 488 WiFi7 platform is the world’s first silicon solution to couple the performance of WiFi7 with the proven robustness and flexibility of Wi-Fi Spectrum Slicing. Highly differentiated features include:

  • Patent-pending, AI-enabled, dynamic channel width selection supporting up to 28 concurrent links/channels,
  • Multi-flex MLO: the first high-performance Multi-Link Operation (MLO) solution engineered to support multiple, concurrent MLO connections,
  • Intelligent Channel Association (ICA™) optimizes device and application layer performance,
  • Plus, standard WiFi7 features such as up to 320 MHz wide channel support, MLO and 4K QAM.

Newly appointed VP of Marketing for Edgewater Wireless, Nicolas Fortineau, states, “The promising trial results presented by Edgewater alongside public endorsement by a major Tier 1 have shown how Spectrum Slicing has the potential to transform the broadband customer experience – even for legacy devices.  As a result of the PoC and Pilot, there has been significant interest from a growing number of Tier 1’s and OEMs as they request samples of our latest silicon.  Edgewater offers Service Providers a way to dramatically improve performance for the billions of existing devices deployed, plus bringing the latest WiFi7 features to new devices.  It’s a massive win and a thrilling time in the growth and evolution of Edgewater.”

With Edgewater’s Wi-Fi Spectrum Slicing, Service Providers and vendors are no longer forced to replace all existing devices, such as WiFi4/5/6, on the network to benefit from the evolving Wi-Fi 7 standard.  In other words, the 20+ Billion existing Wi-Fi devices, such as TVs, smartphones and gaming consoles, do not need to be replaced to realize the gains associated with Spectrum Slicing plus newest devices to benefit from the latest WiFi7 standard.  Using advanced signal processing techniques, Spectrum Slicing is proven to deliver dramatically lower latency (50% or more) and 7 to 18 times performance gains over legacy, single-channel Wi-Fi architectures — for EXISTING and new devices.

Growth for Edgewater Wireless is to be supported by an anticipated blend of traditional and non-dilutive growth capital, newly formed strategic alliances and government programs anchoring silicon production in North America, and further market penetration of Edgewater’s recently launched next-generation Wi-Fi 7 product line.
