Federated Wireless, an Arlington, VA-based developer of scalable wireless infrastructure solutions for carrier networks, raised $22m in Series A funding.
The company intends to use the funds to develop its platform to bring it to enterprise customers in the Education, Healthcare, Hospitality, Retail and Financial markets as well as to to accelerate the development and commercialization of its CINQ platform, a cloud-hosted data analytics and intelligence solution that provides access to the real-time management of shared spectrum made possible through SAS.
Led by Iyad Tarazi, Chief Executive Officer, Federated Wireless provides a cloud-hosted Spectrum Access System (SAS) platform that focuses on the distribution of licensed shared spectrum to extend the access of carrier networks to extended wireless capacity. Its approach incorporates a neural network of radio sensors that allow for interference-free access to low-cost, high-quality licensed spectrum.
The company collaborates with leaders in the Telecommunications and Wi-Fi industries, as well as with government agencies such as the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), to develop standards for dynamically sharing the newly introduced 3.5 GHz band of unlicensed spectrum.
Federated Wireless is currently working with The National Advanced Spectrum and Communications Test Network (NASCTN) to certify its Environmental Sensor Capability (ESC) for its SAS.
Federated Wireless also has offices in Boston, MA and Sunnyvale, CA.
