Cohere Technologies is one of the leading pioneers in the global wireless connectivity industry.
The Company has developed OTFS (Orthogonal Time Frequency and Space), a patented new modulation that promises to address the most critical issues facing wireless communications today – capacity, coverage and cost. Resilient to fading, multipath and other signal impairments that plague conventional modulations, OTFS can deliver 100% coverage, 10x spectral efficiency and a 50% cost savings over existing solutions.
Cohere’s OTFS is a paradigm shift in wireless networking. Unlike the one-dimensional channels currently used in LTE networks, OTFS creates a two-dimensional view of the delay and Doppler of the wireless channel. The new modulation contains an element to spread information across time and frequency, which allows signals to benefit from diversity in the channel while also penetrating through material like concrete and glass. Combined with traditional modulation schemes, OTFS extends the benefits of this 2D modulation to existing platforms as required for the future of 5G mobility. Potential applications span from fixed wireless access to the broader IoT ecosystem such as connected cars, smart homes, smart cities, etc. Cohere is increasingly gaining traction from customers across the globe and has completed successful field trials with Sprint, Telstra, Altice and Deutsche Telecom.
Founded in 2009, Cohere Technologies is headquartered in Santa Clara, California. The Company completed A, B and C financing rounds with a group of investors including NEA (New Enterprise Associates), Lightspeed Venture Partners, Macquarie Capital, Telstra and Altice.
Cohere Technologies is led by an all-star team of telecom and wireless industry veterans. Key executive team includes Ray Dolan (CEO), Shlomo Rakib (Co-founder & CTO), Ronny Hadani (Co-founder & CSO), Ram Prasad (COO), and Michael Grimwood (Sr. Director of Systems Engineering).
Cohere Technologies is a wireless communications technology and solutions company that has developed a groundbreaking modulation called OTFS, which outperforms 4G-LTE-OFDM in every scenario. Resilient to fading, multipath and other signal impairments that plague conventional modulations, OTFS can deliver 100% coverage, 10x spectral efficiency and a 50% cost savings over existing solutions. OTFS maximizes the spectral efficiency (bps/Hz) offering network operators investment protection and a faster return on spectrum investment ($/Hz).
OTFS is a new wireless modulation that implements a 2-Dimensional representation (Delay-Doppler) of the wireless channel making all wireless transmission resilient to channel dynamics. It linearly scales with MIMO to achieve Shannon Capacity under all conditions.
