Edgewater to preview next-generation Spectrum Slicing powered WiFi7 solutions to select Service Providers

OTTAWA, Canada, October 13, 2022 – Edgewater Wireless Systems Inc. (“Edgewater” or the “Company”) (TSXV: YFI) (OTC: KPIFF), the industry leader in Wi-Fi Spectrum Slicing technology for residential and enterprise markets, announced today that it will join Wi-Fi industry leaders at the upcoming Wireless Global Congress 2022 event (“WGC”), Wi-Fi Revolution: Driving Digital Growth, taking place at the RAI Convention Centre in Amsterdam, the Netherlands from October 17 – 20. 

Edgewater will preview to select Service Providers the powerful potential of the Company’s multi-link silicon solutions and its opportunity to meet the needs of the emerging WiFi7 standard and its hallmark feature, Multi-Link Operation (MLO).  

Edgewater’s groundbreaking in-band multi-link silicon solutions have proven superior to the current single-channel architecture used in all of today’s Wi-Fi systems, delivering 50% lower latency and a throughput benefit of 7 to 18 times.  Significantly, improved latency and throughput were demonstrated using a mix of legacy and current Wi-Fi devices — eliminating the costly rip-and-replace cycle of legacy Wi-Fi architectures. 

Edgewater will be offering a preview of the Company’s patented WiFi7 Spectrum Slicing Solutions engineered for residential Wi-Fi applications to select WBA members at the event in Amsterdam from Monday, October 17 to Thursday, October 20.

The Wireless Global Congress 2022 is presented by the Wireless Broadband Alliance (WBA), a global organization that connects people with the latest Wi-Fi initiatives.  Founded in 2003, the vision of the WBA is to drive seamless, interoperable service experiences via Wi-Fi within the global wireless ecosystem.  The WBA empowers its members to resolve standards and technical issues, promote end-to-end services and accelerate business opportunities.  The WBA Board includes major operators and key industry players such as Airties, AT&T, BT, Cisco, Comcast and other global players.

Edgewater’s WGC 2022 participation follows its recent invitation by the WBA to attend its Innovation Forum, a unique gathering of industry technology leaders with the shared ambition of shaping the wireless future and accelerating the industry roadmap’s development.  Comprised of top executives from leading technology companies, the Forum met to discuss and map out initiatives to accelerate the adoption of Wi-Fi, 5G, and convergence services across carriers, enterprises and consumers. Led by the WBA’s CTO Group the Forum originated an initiative consisting of four well-defined pillars: Strategic Alignment, Global Diversity, Execution Capacity, and Impactful Deliverables.
