Cohere Technologies, innovator of massive MIMO scheduler and Delay-Doppler channel software for mobile networks, announced the Spectrum Multiplier, a software platform that improves the strength and efficiency of mobile network.
The US-based company’s software addresses the cost of acquiring new spectrum by enabling mobile network operators (MNOs) to improve the capacity, and increase the value, of all networks.
Cohere’s Spectrum Multiplier platform for the Radio Access Network (RAN) and Telco Cloud delivers on the promise of 5G by extending a mobile network’s spectral efficiency by as much as 2x, meaning a 5G user experience can be quickly and easily provided to end-users on all networks.
The software will be available for the Telco Cloud by the end of 2021.
“The recent U.S. auction outcome totaling more than $80 billion underscores the value of licensed spectrum as an enabler to provide reliable mobile services,” said Ray Dolan, chairman and CEO of Cohere Technologies.
Cohere’s Spectrum Multiplier software can be integrated by network equipment suppliers in the RAN or as an xApp in the Telco Cloud.
Cohere’s transformation from a wireless system supplier to a software company has been made possible because of our unique innovations and patents, and the strength of our engineering team, said Shlomo Rakib, CTO and co-founder of Cohere Technologies.
Cohere first showcased its advantages in February 2020 at Deutsche Telekom’s headquarters in Bonn (Germany), as part of a public O-RAN showcase. The demonstration consisted of mobile devices connected to a standard 4 transmit and 4 receive (4T4R) dual polarized antenna and commercial radio.
Cohere showed a 2x spectrum and capacity multiplier effect for 4G devices connected to the commercial spectrum, with no changes to the devices, radios or antennas. Since then, Cohere has evolved its software to provide the same benefits for 5G.
Cohere’s Spectrum Multiplier platform can be integrated within the Radio Access Network (RAN) Distributed Unit (DU), the Central Unit (CU), or as an xApp in the RAN Intelligent Controller (RIC) within a telco cloud or O-RAN, without any changes to handsets, radios or antennas.
Cohere said it is the first company to solve the issue of channel state information aging and overcome the latency challenges of moving critical intelligence from the RAN to cloud. The software works in any band, with any waveform, on any silicon platform.
