Over the years, there have been many creative solutions from companies with great ideas to help companies in the wireless industry send more data across a limited range. Some worked, while others struggled. A new company called Cohere Technologies is one of those companies with an exciting and new solution to the growing bottleneck of wireless data.
Cohere Technologies attracts the attention of investors and networks both across the country and around the world. In February 2022, the company completed a $ 46 million D-Series funding round led by Koch Investments Group with new strategic investments from VMware, Juniper Networks and Intel Capital. Existing investors Lightspeed Ventures, NEA and Telstra Ventures also attended.
According to Crunchbase, the Cohere round was performed at an estimated post-payment of $ 500 million.
Will the company’s technology become a real solution to the ever-growing and growing challenges in the wireless industry? Let’s take a closer look.
Fixed wireless network Qualcomm, Nokia, Ericsson, Samsung, AT&T, Verizon 5G
This campaign and its solutions are still in their infancy. We’ll have to wait and see how well Cohere works in this market. If its solution works, it will help all wireless operators. Today it is still under testing.
This space is getting quite crowded, but it is an interesting campaign with an interesting solution to the constant problem of limited range of wireless data.
Other players in this fixed 5G wireless access include Qualcomm, Nokia, Ericsson, Samsung, Huawei, Mimosa Networks, Siklu Communication, Ltd, AT&T and others.
Need fixed 5G wireless access or FWA solutions
The range of wireless data has been in short supply since the industry began moving in that direction more than a decade ago using Apple iPhones and Google Android smartphones.
There is just a limited range of wireless data, while usage levels continue to grow from year to year.
This means we need to come up with solutions like splitting one wireless signal into several different channels to cope with ever-increasing usage.
When this wave of growth began, the leaders of smartphones were Blackberry, Nokia and Motorola. Then the Apple iPhone and Google Android entered the picture and completely and quickly transformed the industry.
Demand for wireless data has exploded and continues to do so today, and the end is not in sight.
The shortage of 5G wireless data spectrum is a real and growing problem
Then we had several hundred applications for wireless data and a lot of spectrum.
Today we have millions of applications and their use continues to grow.
And when the industry switched from 3G to 4G, we saw that demand increased dramatically. We use a range of wireless data to watch live TV, listen to music and talk shows, watch videos on LinkedIn, Facebook and elsewhere, book a trip with Uber and Lyft and more.
Now that we are moving from 4G to 5G, this rapid growth continues to the next level in other areas such as automobiles, healthcare and many more.
Demand for 5G wireless continues to grow rapidly
Over time, we have had several solutions to this growing problem. We have developed many new ways to send multiple data streams across each spectrum.
This has helped the industry keep pace with the huge growth in demand that continues to grow.
Now with 5G demand growth continues to grow rapidly. In addition, 5G allows other companies in other areas to enter the wireless business.
All this puts even more strain on the existing spectrum capacity.
Qualcomm, Nokia, Ericsson, Samsung, AT&T, Verizon, Cisco, Intel
There are many companies, large and small, all working to address this data problem that has been with us for over a decade.
Thanks to this, many companies see incredible opportunities for growth in 5G wireless space. Think Qualcomm, Ericsson, Nokia, Intel, Cisco, Huawei and many more, big and small.
Cohere is a small upstart with great ideas and potential solutions that still need to be tested. Will they solve our growth problem or at least help us manage growth?
In fact, this huge and rapid growth opportunity for wireless will affect every corner of the economy as we move forward.
This is great news for our economy, but we need to provide more capacity as demand continues to grow with growth.
Cohere Technologies focuses on how we will send more data
Rapid growth has been with us since the first iPhone and Android hit the market more than a decade ago. It will also continue to grow and put a huge strain on the current wireless data spectrum problem.
The way we send even more data over wireless networks is a problem Cohere is focusing on.
Cohere Technologies uses software inside wireless equipment to make more efficient and effective use of a range of wireless data.
I’ve heard this before from several other companies in the last decade or two. They were all great ideas with interesting technology. Some of them were successful. Others fought.
Cohere CEO Ray Dolan says the company’s technology is increasing network bandwidth
Ray Dolan, CEO of Cohere Technology, says the company’s technology increases network bandwidth in testing.
While this is great, Cohere still needs to keep moving forward with tests and trials in real networks to make sure it can cope with the pressure of the ever-changing demand curve.
This technology has promising potential, but it is important to understand that there are even more needs, moving from testing to actual use in existing wireless networks.
There are still so many questions to answer:
- Can this technology cope with the intense pressure of a live wireless network?
- How does it cope with a sudden load on geographically limited areas such as a concert or sporting event?
- How easily will it turn on when demand is high, and stop when it goes down?
- Will it solve a broader problem or for some reason be limited to certain areas?
While there are still many questions to be answered, Cohere and similar companies are working to address our real spectrum deficit issues.
Cohere Technologies creates fixed 5G wireless spectrum software
So while we are still in the early stages of testing this new technology, it captures the imagination.
This is a potential solution to a growing problem created due to the limited availability of wireless data spectrum in a fast growing industry.
We have been dealing with this problem of lack of wireless spectrum for more than ten years.
So far, as an industry, we have managed to keep our heads above water. Hopefully, we will find more ideas and solutions like this to solve a larger and longer-term problem in the wireless industry.
I will keep an eye on Cohere Technologies and all the other companies that offer exciting solutions to this ongoing wireless problem.
