King of Prussia (PA)-US, February 10 2012: Bangalore-based embedded solutions provider Ittiam Systems’ mobile Wireless LAN platform, coupled with a dynamic spectrum management solution from US-based wireless technology leader, InterDigital, will help service providers harness the so-called TV White Space and other under-utilised telecom spectrum to reduce WI-Fi network congestion.
The system will be unveiled at this year’s Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain, which starts on February 27.
Ittiam is a leading provider of Wi-Fi (802.11a/b/g/n) technology and its MWLAN platform provides the Wi-Fi MAC and Physical Layer for InterDigital's Spectrum Management which achieves allocation and aggregation of contiguous and non-contiguous frequency channels across licensed and unlicensed bands. It extends legacy systems such as Wi-Fi and cellular into under-utilized frequency bands.
Says Ravishankar Ganesan, Ittiam’s Vice President and Head of System-on-a-Chip IP Business Unit "It is an honor for Ittiam to be associated with co-creating advanced Wi-Fi solutions with a wireless technology leader like InterDigital. Ittiam invested in the Wi-Fi Silicon IP over a decade ago with full understanding that all consumer devices will one day get to the ‘always connected' mode using Wi-Fi”.
Adds James J. Nolan, Executive Vice President, Research and Development at InterDigital: "Intelligent harvesting of under-utilized spectrum is a key approach towards solving the bandwidth crunch in wireless networks. InterDigital has led the way in this space, developing a complete system solution that enables legacy Wi-Fi systems to leverage underused frequency bands. Ittiam's Wi-Fi technology, extended to operate and aggregate channels in TV White Space bands, is an important component of our solution."
