Austin Based Startup, Creates Technology to Maximize Spectrum Usage for 5G Applications

GenXComm, an Austin-based startup, commercializing wireless technologies, has closed its seed funding round after investments from the UT Horizon Fund and other investors. GenXComm’s robust simultaneous self-interference cancellation (S-SIX) technology unleashes the full potential of the spectrum used for today’s 5G mobile, Wi-Fi and cable networks by allowing channels to be stacked one next to the other with no empty spectrum between them.

The patented technology includes doubling the effectiveness of the available spectrum by enabling talk while listen and increasing network performance up to 30X in dense environments, while maintaining full backwards compatibility. Unlike previous attempts, GenXComm’s patented S-SIX technology operates under harsh real-world conditions allowing its use in a stadium, between tall buildings or anywhere we decide to connect, live, work and play.

GenXComm was able to finally solve one of the most challenging wireless communication problems – how to achieve the full use and near 100% effectiveness of any wireless and wired spectrum. All networks today must transmit and receive in either different frequencies at the same time, or at different times on the same frequency. Moreover, multiple transmitters must be spaced apart to avoid interfering with one another. GenXComm’s technology enables multiple transmitters to coexist side-by-side, enabling life without interference.

The company’s technology now demonstrates that wireless devices can finally evolve to their full potential. Often referred to as the “Holy Grail” in communications, GenXComm S-SIX technology enables robust full-duplex communications and full-use of the available spectrum just as carriers are planning their 5G cellular networks to cope with a flood of new wireless devices and rapidly increasing data demands on wireless networks.

With the latest investment from the UT Horizon Fund, GenXComm has fully-subscribed its seed financing, providing the Company with capital to complete important milestones including the pursuit of key hires, expanding upon engagements with strategic partners and commercializing the technology for various applications and markets.
