TensorComm among the "Fiercest"

Monday, April 23, 2007

I just got the news that my company has been selected by Fierce Wireless as being one of the most innovative wireless companies. You can find the press release in the link below-

Well, you will be able to appreciate it further if you realize that we are a company with only 10 full-time employees but over 75 patent applications in the design and architecture of interference cancellation technologies for CDMA 1X/HSDPA/WCDMA etc. Another fact worth mentioning is that QualComm, the CDMA pioneer initially dismissed the benefits of interference cancellation for down-link CDMA but then came a full-circle to announce interference cancellation products for both CDMA 1x and HSDPA. They fondly call their CDMA 1x product "QualComm Interference cancellation (QLIC)". Though we are the minnows in the wireless wars, being the only other company offering a product-ready interference cancellation solution places this Denver-based team in a unique position in the industry.

Clearly, if interference cancellation becomes a norm, or even an operator requirement in the near future, the industry will look to us to provide an alternative to QualComm's engineering brilliance. Of course, all this is assuming that the CDMA/WCDMA success story is not shadowed by any of the OFDM technologies that are emerging as the evolution path or even alternate solutions.

Vijay,
Thats great news!! Congrats to u and ur guys. The QC's 360 degree trun around was quite a fascinating story too.

Cheers!

I heard that Qualcomm employed IC for both the FL and RL of cdma2000 1x and DO. In the RL, it is the successive IC used. In the FL of 1x, it is the MMSE-IC, which essentially is very similar to the subspace-based approach of TensorComm.

And Qualcomm recently suggested the 1x-advanced evolution path for cdma2000 1x in the 3GPP2 Osaka meeting. Qualcomm detailed the gains from interference cancellation in their presentation. It was quite interesting.

BTW, I found that a good review of IC can be found at
