ADAPTIX Awarded Two New 4G Patents

ADAPTIX, Inc., a pioneer in the development of orthogonal frequency division multiple access technology, recently announced in a press release that it has been awarded two new U.S. patents relevant to 4G and other wireless technologies.

On Aug. 23, 2011, ADAPTIX was awarded U.S. Patent 8,005,479, entitled “Method and Apparatus for Adaptive Carrier Allocation and Power Control in Multi-Carrier Communication Systems,” which describes methods for wireless frequency carrier allocation in conjunction with dynamic power control.

The other patent granted to the company is U.S. Patent 8,010,118, entitled “Systems and Methods for Making Channel Assignments to Reduce Interference and Increase Capacity of Wireless Networks.” The patent details methods in which wireless systems may optimize available bandwidth for use by multiple subscribers using their connected devices.

“ADAPTIX is very pleased to have been awarded these two new patents,” said Byron Young, vice president of marketing and technology, in a press release. “The concepts and methods covered by these patents provide an excellent basis for how 4G wireless networks may more effectively manage frequency allocation and power control in real-world conditions. The net result is a more robust and faster user experience.”

ADAPTIX, Inc. is an award-winning technology company long recognized in the industry as one of the first developers of cutting edge OFDMA-based mobile wireless systems. The company recently joined Sweden-based Interpeak, an Internet and security protocol solutions for embedded systems, to provider in order to offer wireless carriers a more complete broadband wireless mobility offering.

As part of the new agreement, Interpeak will provide a WiMAX/WiBro-compliant network layer solution, including Mobile IPv4, dual IPv4/IPv6 TCP/IP stacks, and Interpeak Virtual Router capabilities, to integrate with the ADAPTIX WiMAX/WiBro link layer solution. The new agreement asks for forth companies to collaborate in the implementation of optimizations to Mobile IPv4 in the areas of fast handoff and packet loss mitigation.
