MagnaCom Selected by FierceWireless as one of the Top "Fierce 15" Global Wireless Companies of 2014

LAGUNA NIGUEL, Calif. --(Business Wire)--

MagnaCom announced today that it has been selected to the annual FierceWireless (News - Alert) "Fierce 15" list, designating it as one of the top privately-held wireless companies of the year. FierceWireless editors evaluated hundreds of organizations, and found MagnaCom to be one of the most "fierce" startups in the wireless industry in 2014, and a company that has strong potential to grow very rapidly in the years ahead.

FierceWireless, an internationally recognized daily email newsletter reaching more than 80,000 senior wireless industry executives, provides executives in over 100 countries with a quick, authoritative briefing on the day's top wireless stories, including new trends and technologies.

"MagnaCom is talking about reshaping how networks have been designed for the past several decades," said Phil Goldstein, Editor of FierceWireless. "This radical new approach uses patented technology called WAM, or WAve Modulation. The technology is non-linear and multi-dimensional, and it allows for much more data to be transmitted over the same amount of spectrum, resulting in networks that are more resilient, and can transmit data at higher speeds, lower power and using less spectrum than before."

MagnaCom has invented and is now sampling to early access partners, a revolutionary new technology which can save spectrum and power, while increasing bandwidth, speed and distance, for nearly all state-of-the-art wired and wireless devices. WAM (WAve Modulation), is a vastly superior modulation, that has been demonstrated live showing a 10dB system gain advantage compared with legacy QAM (Quadrature Amplitude Modulation) - the modulation used in nearly all global networks for over 0 years. A 10dB gain results in over 400% longer reach, 50% lower power, 50% better spectrum utilization and massive improvements in speed, throughput and networks operating cost. WAM applies equally to both wired and wireless communication and is 100% backward compatible with legacy QAM, while costing less than 1mm2 of silicon to implement. Initial deployment is expected in point-to-point applications, such as wireless backhaul and satellite systems, followed by broader adoption into standards-based mass markets like cable, DSL, Wi-Fi and cellular.

"MagnaCom is honored to be selected by FierceWireless for this award, highlighting the potential of WAM to revolutionize the evolution of global digital communications," said Yossi Cohen, co-founder and CEO of MagnaCom. "WAM modulation has already attracted the attention of our industry, as one of the most significant improvements in communications systems design in decades - with its far-reaching benefits now being validated in our partners' labs."

The FierceWireless "Fierce 15" celebrates the spirit of being "fierce," championing innovation and creativity, even in the face of intense competition. The complete list of winning companies is available on the FierceWireless Web site at

About MagnaCom

MagnaCom is a privately held technology company aiming to reinvent the evolution of digital communications. The company was founded around a whole new, patented modulation technology called WAM™, which can help alleviate the global spectrum congestion and insatiable demand for more bandwidth. This impacts cellular, Wi-Fi, satellite and cable TV, wireless backhaul, cable and DSL modems, long and short haul fiber and numerous other applications. WAM technology applies to carriers, handset manufacturers, and any wired and wireless system OEMs, and communication IC vendors who strive to save spectrum, increase bandwidth, speed and distance or reduce power consumption. With over 15 issued patents and over 50 more pending MagnaCom is challenging the 40-year dominance of QAM as the modulation of choice for all advanced wired and wireless systems. The company has assembled a world-class team of scientists, executives and advisors from Broadcom, Qualcomm, Motorola (News - Alert) Mobility (acquired by Google), Texas Instruments, Intel, ST Microelectronics and Passif Semiconductor (recently acquired by Apple).
