Latest patent covers cloud-based wireless technology used for low-power, wide-area networking
ATLANTA (March 26, 2019) – Cognosos today announced the issuance of a patent that provides additional claims related to the company’s RadioCloud® technology. RadioCloud is a groundbreaking technology for the Industrial Internet of Things that enables long-range transmissions by low-cost wireless devices while extending battery life at the same time.
“Our latest patent makes claims related to the use of MIMO techniques to extend the range of low-power wireless devices by using the signals from multiple gateways and cooperatively processing those signals in such a way as to reduce interference and improve the signal-to-noise ratio,” said co-founder and CTO Jim Stratigos. “It grows our patent portfolio to ten U.S. and international patents covering our RadioCloud technology.”
Patent 10,135,499 is for a distributed radio communications network where software defined radio (SDR) gateways are used along with advanced signal processing and coding techniques in a remote server to provide low-power, wire-area wireless networks using widely available, low-cost wireless devices. RadioCloud provides a superior alternative to traditional RFID, Wi-Fi and LTE networks for applications requiring coverage within buildings or across large outdoor campus areas.
Cognosos has incorporated RadioCloud® technology within its complete, end-to-end IoT platform supporting both outdoor and indoor geolocation applications across multiple industries including automotive, logistics, manufacturing and healthcare. The company has deployed its geolocation IoT platform to customer sites across the country and has over 40,000 of its wireless tags currently in service.
