PHY Wireless Separates from Acorn Technologies

PHY Wireless, a newly formed positioning wireless company, has announced it has separated from its parent, Acorn Technologies, the company said.

The spin-off will allow PHY Wireless to become a pure play provider of high performance accurate positioning mobile solutions for carriers, chip makers, IoT module manufacturers, application service providers and end users.

PHY Wireless has developed a complete portfolio, known as hellaPHY, of truly scalable, low cost, positioning and location intelligence solutions to enable high-accuracy and low-power location services on existing LTE and 5G networks.

PHY Wireless´s algorithms are designed for the lowest implementation of the IoT or LPWA roadmap, allow for positioning to be device based with next to no network interaction, thereby reducing power dramatically, and thus extending battery life.

Battery life will be a key factor in the success of IoT solutions. The technology anticipates carriers´ needs in a world of ever increasing wireless device density, and optimizing network bandwidths. PHY Wireless´s solutions scale throughout the UE categories and support E911 requirements. PHY Wireless´s algorithms also bring infrastructure efficiency to carriers by extending spectral efficiency. The company provides both hardware and software versions of its algorithms that can exist within basebands or on application processors.

PHY Wireless is a newly established positioning telecommunications company spun out after years of de-risking its technology portfolio through network testing and proof of concept trials. The company offers scalable positioning and location intelligence solutions to enable high-accuracy and low-power location services on existing LTE and 5G networks. www.phywireless.com
