Wi-BUS™ sits at the boundary between two domains - baseband data processing and RF signal transmission. Currently, Wi-BUS™ is the only commercially viable technology that bridges two domains. WiBUS™ extracts a variety of information regarding network performance, and then utilizes that information in novel ways to dynamically tune the network for optimal performance. WiBUS™ consists of a set of interdependent, yet orthogonal tools, including a combination of software and hardware with proprietary subsystems and drivers that span from handsets, RF towers, and backbone routers. Depending on the market application and deployment configuration, WiBUS™ can be scaled to accommodate highly standardized networks following a tight constraint on interoperability, including existing deployed mobile cells, or closed stand-alone end-to-end networks without limitation to pre-defined protocols.
WiBUS™ brings to both existing and planned networks a unified closed loop feedback system capable of dynamically “tuning” the baseband processor and the RF transmission station. The tuning engine provides dramatic efficiency gains over existing mobile architectures. WiBUS™ chooses, in real-time, the best configuration of varying feedback parameters, including content composition, content priority, RF network integrity, and other available relational attributes. WiBUS™ works to effectively frame this complex architectural problem into a set of non-linear multi-dimensional formulas, and then through advanced global optimization search algorithms, it adjusts for the best network configuration for any given condition.
With the expected increase in converged voice, video, data traffic, a WiBUS™ overlay in a mobile network will increase user capacity up to one hundred percent (100%) without degradation in the user experience (QOS). Furthermore, as packet based 4G mobile networks, such as LTE become commonplace, WiBUS™ will gain a layer of additional efficiency through the flexibility of their transmission frameworks.
For closed network deployments, e.g., wireless backhaul, WiBUS™ brings improvements to the RF links in addition to the increases in capacity stated above. Through these efficiency increases, WiBUS™ makes available RF bands that were previously unusable due to noise factors (e.g. UHF). For cost sensitive markets, WiBUS™ can reduce the RF tower count by more than fifty percent (50%).
