February 18, 2016

SANTA CLARA, Calif.wire4tech – Cohere Technologies, a well-funded startup pioneering new wireless connectivity technologies, is building its executive team with the addition of Roy Shay as vice president of engineering and Mike Cook as vice president of sales.  In these strategic positions, both Shay and Cook are building teams to accelerate commercial availability of Cohere’s first products based on its groundbreaking wireless modulation, Orthogonal Time Frequency and Space, or OTFS™.

“Now that extensive trials of Cohere’s OTFS technology validated its ability to dramatically improve the capacity, range and reliability of wireless networking, it’s time to expand our executive team to formally bring our products to market,” said Shlomo Rakib, CEO of Cohere Technologies.  “OTFS is the right technology at the right time as the industry races towards 5G, and by adding Roy and Mike, we are expanding our focus to include building and selling products that will transform wireless networking.”

Shay is responsible for overseeing Cohere’s growing staff of engineers as they productize high-performance OTFS-enabled wireless networking solutions.  He comes to Cohere after 15 years serving as vice president of engineering for EFI, one of the top players in the graphics and imaging markets.  Shay has tremendous experience leading large engineering teams that successfully brought new products to market.

Cook now leads the company’s sales team, using his extensive contacts within top wireless carriers and other service providers to drive sales of Cohere’s forthcoming MIMO radio products. A veteran sales executive with more than 20 years in the wireless telecommunications industry, he comes to Cohere having served as vice president of sales at BridgeWave Communications, which specializes in point-to-point, gigabit wireless networking solutions.

Cohere Technologies developed OTFS, its patented wireless modulation, to address the most critical issues facing wireless communications today – capacity, coverage and cost.  This new modulation has applications for wireless backhaul, fixed wireless access and the future of 5G.  This technology will position Cohere Technologies to revolutionize outdoor and indoor wireless communications.
