Senet, a North American provider of public, low-power, wide-area networks (LPWANs) for long-range-based (LoRa-based) Internet of Things (IoT) applications, announced that it has achieved coverage in 100 U.S. cities.
The company said it plans to deploy both Macrocell and Microcell technology at scale to double its coverage over the next year and provide support for the multitude of LPWAN use cases expected to be deployed in the future.
Per Vices, a wireless solutions provider, has announced its next generation Software Defined Radio (SDR) technology: Crimson The Next Generation (Crimson TNG). Crimson TNG is a full duplex transceiver with an operating frequency from DC to 6GHz with four independently controlled receive and transmit chains, each having 322MHz of RF bandwidth. It also has a stable internal reference clock (+/- 5ppb) and a dual SFP+ backhaul providing up to 20Gbps transfer speeds.
Ossia, maker of the Cota wireless power technology, has filed two Post Grant Review (PGR) petitions with the United States Patent Office (USPTO) against the core patent owned by Energous Corporation claiming ‘pocket forming’ technology.
The two PGR petitions challenge the patentability of certain patent claims contained in U.S. Patent No. 9,124,125 Wireless Power Transmission With Selective Range. The first petition challenges the patentability of certain claims because the patent specification appears legally insufficient to describe the alleged invention to “a person of ordinary skill in the art” to make and use the claimed invention that delivers wireless power with a selective range without additional invention or undue experimentation. The second petition challenges the patentability of certain claims because of the existence of technology that was previously described in the public domain prior to the filing of the patent.
Ossia is represented in this matter by Robert Greene Sterne of the patent law specialty firm of Sterne, Kessler, Goldstein & Fox PLLC of Washington DC.
