Edgewater Wireless Further Strengthens Patent Portfolio with its Third Spectrum Slicing Patent Application


Edgewater Wireless Systems Inc. (TSXV: YFI) (OTC: KPIFF), the industry leader in Wi-Fi Spectrum Slicing technology for residential and enterprise markets, proudly announces the submission of the third patent application within the invention titled "Method and Apparatus for In-Band Multi-Channel Determination and Utilization".

"With the rapid transition to WiFi7 and the increasing challenges associated with legacy, single-channel Wi-Fi, the importance of Spectrum Slicing continues to grow, and we continue to develop and patent innovative approaches to better wireless performance for ALL devices," said Eric Smith, VP Product of Edgewater Wireless Systems Inc. "The series of patent applications punctuates a pivotal moment in our product strategy - based on years of direct customer engagements and deep insights into the challenges associated with legacy Wi-Fi. We've built something profound and continue to refine our innovations to deliver maximum customer value."

The latest patent application caps a series of innovations targeting next-generation Wi-Fi and Wireless Communications:

Patent #1 US Application Number 18/643,333 and International Application No. PCT/CA2024/050533, established an artificially intelligent algorithmic stack designed to decide the optimal number and width of channels in a Spectrum Slicing (multi-link) radio array based on dynamic environmental data.

Patent #2 US Patent Application No. 18/643,386 and International Application No. PCT/CA2024/050533 established an algorithm stack designed to determine which channels within the Spectrum Slicing (multi-link) enabled radio array established with techniques in Patent #1 can be utilized for traffic or should be disengaged.

Patent #3 (US Patent Application No. 18/643,418 and International Application No. PCT/CA2024/050533) is the third and final patent application in the series; it describes the part of the overall invention which uses the unique spectral awareness capabilities, such as those included in Edgewater's Spectrum Slicing chipset, or the Spectral Surveillance Architecture (SSA), to inform the algorithm regarding the relative health of the specific spectral band (ISM, UNII, etc.) attempting to be utilized by the channelized spectral environment. The algorithm then determines what spectral frequencies within the band utilized by the Spectrum Slicing-enabled (multi-link) radio array are clear enough from noise or interference to be fully utilized for traffic or should be disregarded or deprioritized for channelized use. The algorithmic stack detailed in this patent application describes an artificially intelligent component within the greater invention.



"As we move forward commercializing our next-generation Wi-Fi silicon solutions, one of our utmost priorities has been ring-fencing our IP - and we've achieved a significant milestone," said Andrew Skafel, President and CEO of Edgewater Wireless. "We can now redouble our efforts to deliver engineering samples and reference designs for our next-generation Spectrum Slicing powered WiFi7 silicon solutions."

The series of novel patent applications establish a leadership position in using multi-link/multi-channel capabilities to deliver the highest quality of service with the lowest latency for the most devices possible. Simply put, building on the physical layer capacities encompassed in Spectrum Slicing, the newest patent applications allow service providers and users to deliver highly differentiated services based on the individual physical environment and device capabilities on the network -- Real-world performance for real-world devices.


Wi-Fi Spectrum Slicing enables more in-band channels than all legacy Wi-Fi architectures up to and including WiFi7. Backed by 26 granted patents, Wi-Fi Spectrum Slicing creates a robust, future-proof platform for features like MLO, Dual-Channel Wi-Fi which require more physical capacity than legacy single-channel Wi-Fi offers.
