InterDigital engineers played a prominent role at the 2012 IEEE 76th Vehicular Technology Conference (VTC2012-Fall)earlier this week. Three separate speakers presented the company’s advanced solutions for the next generation of wireless:

Policy-driven bandwidth management techniques that factor in various conditions to enable a user’s data to be routed over a cellular or Wi-Fi® network – dynamically switching between networks, combined across several networks to aggregate bandwidth, or segregate multiple applications simultaneously among several networks. While fully transparent to the user, these innovations significantly improve network capacity and make quality of service more predictable.

Advanced waveforms that achieve high throughput performance in non-contiguous and opportunistically available frequencies – centered around filter bank multicarrier modulation and its variations - whereby prototype filters are designed to achieve certain frequency and time domain localization.

Dynamic spectrum management for harvesting additional capacity from TV white space and under-utilized frequency bands to supplement existing cellular and Wi-Fi systems. The company’s comprehensive dynamic spectrum management technologies address more efficient utilization of the finite resource that is spectrum – a critical new frontier.

Putting theory into practice, the company also featured a live demonstration of its Smart Access Manager (SAM), a policy-driven client that enables smartphones, tablets and other wireless devices to make intelligent traffic management decisions using Wi-Fi, 3G and LTE networks. The SAM client dynamically directs traffic flows by type of application, resulting in optimized connectivity and enhanced service provider visibility and control. Its availability on Android and Windows platforms provides MNOs, MVNOs and device OEMs with the ability to offer seamless and secure policy-driven Wi-Fi handover as a differentiator – a key capability given the increasing use of mobile devices for data-rich applications such as streaming video.

VTC2012-Fall was held 3-6 September 2012 at the Québec City Convention Center in Québec City, Canada. This semi-annual flagship conference of the IEEE Vehicular Technology Society brought together individuals from academia, government, and industry to discuss and exchange ideas in the fields of wireless, mobile, and vehicular technology. The event featured world-class plenary speakers, tutorials, and technical as well as application sessions.
