On June 14, 2012,Shared Spectrum Company (SSC), the leading innovator of dynamic spectrum access and cognitive radio technology software solutions, announced it has been awarded the American Technology Award (ATA) for outstanding achievement in telecommunications for its Spectrum Sensing Toolbox.
The award-winning Spectrum Sensing Toolbox from Shared Spectrum has been integrated into InterDigital’s Dynamic Spectrum Management™ (DSM) platform to provide channel quality sensing functions. InterDigital’s complete DSM platform and suite of technologies enable a network of networks to operate on underutilized frequencies, including TV whitespace (TVWS). Wi-Fi®, LTE, and other wireless systems can use this ground-breaking technology to harvest additional spectrum to service more users, increase data throughput, avoid interference, and build out the small cell, heterogeneous network that is now being recognized as the future of wireless infrastructure.
InterDigital’s comprehensive approach to developing and standardizing Dynamic Spectrum Management technology has included the successful collaboration with a growing number of leading companies in this exciting new area. This technology – now ready to move into mainstream products – opens up many frequency channels to address the bandwidth crunch that we’re often reminded of.
