Edgewater Wireless & Galgus Partner to Build World's First WiFi3™ Solution with Ultra-intelligent Cognitive Hotspot Technology

Combined solution will deliver never-before-seen capabilities and performance in high density WiFi networks

OTTAWA, Ontario and SEVILLE, Spain, November 21, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --

Edgewater Wireless Systems Inc. (YFI; TSX.V), the manufacturer of WiFi3™ multi-channel WiFi technology, is pleased to announce today the company is partnering with Galgus to integrate Galgus' Cognitive Hotspot Technology (CHT) into Edgewater Wireless multi-channel WiFI3 Access Points.

Edgewater Wireless Access Points and OEM solutions will benefit by having CHT on board and optimize WiFi spectrum, increase WiFi performance and further reduce the impacts of interference in high density wireless networks. WiFi3 already delivers the highest channel density WiFi access points and solutions and, with Galgus' CHT technology, will supercharge WiFi3 capabilities for network operators with Multi-channel Client & Multi-channel Band Steering, enhanced Load Balancing (across concurrent channels and access points), and next level security with policy-based client authentication.

"Network operators are increasingly asking for and need great hardware that can handle the impacts of interference and capacity in high density and WiFi3 delivers by enabling multiple, concurrent channels with 3 to 6 channels on just two radios," said Eric Smith, VP Product with Edgewater Wireless. "In addition to the gains WiFi3 can bring to an access point solution, Galgus' CHT technology will deliver even more capability and simply unbeatable performance in high density WiFi networks. This in another world first innovation that could only be achieved by fully integrating WiFi3 and Cognitive Hotspot Technology."

Galgus is one of the fastest growing companies in the WiFi industry and recent Wireless Broadband Alliance Industry Award Winner. Since 2014, Galgus has focused on unleashing the power of WiFi and makes WiFi networks intelligent -  optimizing spectral efficiencies for WiFi routers and Access points (APs).

"Edgewater Wireless has a unique technology that enables very high concentrated wireless capacity. Where with other brands you would need to deploy 3 APs, Edgewater Wireless consolidates performance with just one AP," said Jose Gonzalez, CEO of Galgus. "Wireless capacity planning is one of the biggest challenges today and even more so in the coming years. The combined solution of Galgus' CHT™ and Edgewater's WiFi3™ allows network operators to be one step ahead in delivering the best performance to their customers and meeting their service demands."

Edgewater's WiFi3™ powered technology is the best Wi-Fi solution for carriers, service providers and systems integrators to address the growing problems of interference, capacity and critical mass of users which is stretching WiFi and IOT networks to their breaking point. Edgewater's patented technology solves the high-density problem while also significantly reducing the equipment investment and operating costs for new network deployments.

About Galgus: 

Galgus develops and markets an unique WiFi technology that is currently being used by numerous OEMs and system integrators worldwide to deliver high-performing WiFi networks. Galgus' Cognitive Hotspot™ Technology (CHT) is an embedded generic software that makes WiFi networks intelligent and optimizes spectral efficiencies for WiFi routers and Access points (APs).

CHT increases WiFi performance (Goodput) by up to 400%, while reducing interference levels and power consumption, especially in high-user density environments. CHT creates a fully distributed Wi-Fi network, making each AP intelligent. APs with CHT measure key network metrics, exchange them with neighboring APs and together optimize radio resources in real-time. A WiFi network with CHT is more reliable, better performing, greener, and delivers a flawless QoS (Quality of Service) for every connected user and thing (IoE).
