New patent application bolsters Company’s intellectual property portfolio with application-layer intelligence and further establishes Company’s leadership position.

May  14, 2022 – 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 the recently completed patent application “Method and Apparatus for In-Band Multi-Channel Determination and Utilization.”

“As the industry sees an accelerated shift to WiFi7, and WiFi7’s marquee feature of Multi-Link Operation (MLO) gains real-world traction, the need for Spectrum Slicing has never been more essential than it is today,” said Andrew Skafel, President and CEO of Edgewater Wireless Systems Inc. “Our leadership in Spectrum Slicing – backed by over 26 granted patents – is now being extended to include a new generation of application-layer intelligence impacting the $39.4 billion global Wi-Fi market[1].  Kudos to our Product Factory for driving customer-focused innovation.  Their dedication to creating better products is an essential part of our strategy to unlock shareholder value.”

The recently filed patent application pertains to the Method and Apparatus for In-Band Multi-Channel Determination and Utilization.  This application has been filed as US Patent Application No. 18/643,333 and International Application No.  PCT/CA2024/050533.  The US and international patent applications are based on US Provisional Application No. 63/461,709, filed in April of 2023.  

This first patent application in a series describes the use of an algorithm stack to ingest available information about the Wi-Fi environment and then determine and configure the optimal number-and-bandwidth of available channels within a spectral band using a Spectrum Slicing enabled radio array.  The algorithmic stack detailed in this patent application describes an artificially intelligent (AI) component within the greater invention.

“As we have stated in prior press releases, this invention, and its patentable components, represent the command and control mechanisms necessary to fully realize the power of Spectrum Slicing and wireless quality of service,’ said Eric Smith, VP of Product for Edgewater Wireless.  “The official applications have now been formally filed both in the US and abroad, and once again, Edgewater Wireless has broken new ground in Wi-Fi technology that will ultimately make ‘Wi-Fi better’ for everyone.”
