Kumu Networks: doubling throughput for any radio
Kumu is a startup that has created a “self-interference cancellation” technology for any radio. It means the radio doesn’t “hear itself” transmitting. And what that means, says Kumu, is that the radio can send and receive at the same time on one channel – full duplex communications. And that, in turn, means doubling spectral efficiency and doubling throughput. Jam-packed Wi-Fi networks would get a boost in throughput and resiliency. At MWC, the first tech demo will show full-duplex, single-channel LTE connections. Check out “Full Duplex Radios,” a Stanford University paper.
