InterDigital, Inc., incorporated on March 23, 2007, designs and develops technologies for wireless communications. The Company has designed and developed a range of technologies that are used in digital cellular and wireless products and networks, including second generation (2G), third generation (3G), fourth generation (4G) and IEEE 802 related products and networks. The Company's subsidiaries hold a portfolio of approximately 20,400 patents and patent applications related to a range of technologies, including the fundamental technologies that enable wireless communications. Products integrating its technologies include mobile devices, such as cellular phones, tablets, notebook computers and wireless personal digital assistants; wireless infrastructure equipment, such as base stations, and components, dongles and modules for wireless devices. The Company is focused on approximately two technology areas: cellular wireless technology and Internet of Things (IoT) technology.
Cellular Wireless Technologies
The Company is engaged in developing cellular technologies, including those related to code division multiple access (CDMA) and time division multiple access (TDMA) and orthogonal frequency division multiplexing/ orthogonal frequency division multiple access (OFDM/OFDMA) and multiple input multiple output (MIMO). A number of its TDMA-based and CDMA-based inventions are being used in all 2G, 3G and 4G wireless networks, and mobile terminal devices. The Company is engaged in developing its technology portfolio in areas, including the long term evolution (LTE), LTE Advanced projects and fifth generation (5G) technologies for 3G partnership project (3GPP) radio technology. The Company's LTE inventions include MIMO technologies for reducing interference and increasing data rates; power control; control channel structures for signaling; multi-carrier operation; low-complexity devices; vehicular-centric communications (V2X), and other areas. Its wireless background includes engineering and corporate development activities that focus on solutions that apply to other wireless market segments. The Company builds a portfolio of technology related to wireless fidelity (Wi-Fi), wireless local area network (WLAN), wireless metropolitan area network (WMAN), Wireless Rural Area Network(WRAN) and the digital cellular area that includes improvements to the IEEE 802.11 PHY and MAC to increase data rates, the use of lower frequency bands IoT and other new use cases, such as TV-Whitespace (802.11af) and sub 1 GHz (802.11ah), and fast initial link setup (802.11ai) to enhance hotspot operation (WFA HOTSPOT 2.0).
Internet of Things Technology
In the field of machine-to-machine (M2M) and IoT applications, the Company is developing technologies to enable interconnection for multiple access types (cellular, WLAN, WPAN) and M2M service frameworks that can be managed by a customer and leveraged by a diverse set of vertical applications. The Company launched its oneMPOWER platform, which enables interoperability and scalability across diverse verticals, networks and devices. Its oneMPOWER platform is a scalable horizontal platform that helps businesses launch and manage IoT data and applications. It features a range of application enabling services that span connectivity, device, data, security and transaction management. Its oneMPOWER platform complies with oneM2M. The solution is based on an open standard with a long-term features roadmap, which interworks with many existing industry protocols and alliances. The Company's wot.io data service exchange is used for connected device platforms. The wot.io platform provides a common interface to multiple service providers, allowing companies to monetize IoT data through a real-time, low-latency service-oriented architecture.
