Here in San Diego we have a number of new and innovative technology companies. One of which I’m proud to be connected to by Rick Johnson (their CFO) who was the CFO of Tarari and a fellow Intel Alumni. The company is Ethertronics and makes chip-sets that implement various types of antenna functionality for the mobile market. Their latest introduction at this year’s CES is ACTIVE STEERING
The industry is preparing for a 1000x increase in data traffic while carriers are running out of capacity on their networks. The solution to this daunting challenge isn’t as simple as just buying more spectrum or adding more infrastructure in the form of cellular towers, small cells and Distributed Antenna Systems (DAS) equipment. The wireless devices themselves are key to increasing capacity through spectral efficiency. Active Steering technology is crucial to improve device efficiency and performance.
Ethertronics’ Active Steering technology provides
- Significantly faster throughput – higher data rates
- Minimizes unwanted interference
- Seamless handoffs between towers
- Better connected experience for users
- Increased spectral efficiency – more capacity to carriers’ networks
