Xtendwave, a technology company focused on delivering broadband signals over existing telecommunications networks, announced that the U.S. Patent and Trade Office approved three of the company's patents.

Xtendwave, a technology company focused on delivering broadband signals over existing telecommunications networks, announced that the U.S. Patent and Trade Office approved three of the company's patents.

Covering key aspects of Xtendwave's Adaptive Filter Bank Modulation (AFBM) technology, which uses wavelet-transform signal processing methods, the approved patents include: "Optimal Filter-Bank Wavelet Modulation," "Inversion of Channel Distortion by Adaptive Wavelet Lifting," and "Code Division Multiple Access Employing Orthogonal Filter Bank."

"Patent approval is a major milestone in substantiating and bringing to market Xtendwave's solution to dramatically improve broadband data and HDTV service delivery to more people," said Marc Landry, CEO of Xtendwave. The company says its technology is an attractive solution for rural telecommunications companies who want to eliminate the digital divide in isolated regions.

According to Dennis Robbins, an Xtendwave senior technology advisor, having these patents in place will help the company achieve many goals that will benefit the industry. "Xtendwave will help telecommunications companies compete into the future, help satisfy customer and regulator demand for broadband ubiquity, help equipment providers use and monetize spare DSLAM slots, and help equipment manufactures develop relevant new products for the vast telecom market," says Robbins.
