Cohere Technologies recognized for biggest contribution to 5G research and development for its OTFS wireless modulation

SANTA CLARA, Calif., – June 6, 2016 /Wire4Tech/ Cohere Technologies ( today announced its revolutionary wireless modulation technology, OTFS™, has been named a finalist for “biggest contribution to 5G research and development” in one of the most prestigious industry awards for high-speed wireless technology: the LTE & 5G World Awards.

Cohere Technologies was nominated for the 5G World Awards for its groundbreaking wireless modulation, Orthogonal Time Frequency and Space, or OTFS. Cohere developed this patented wireless modulation to address the most critical issues facing wireless communications today – capacity, coverage and cost.  Currently, OTFS is being evaluated by the 3GPP for inclusion in forthcoming 5G wireless standards. At the most recent 3GPP meeting, Cohere received public support from AT&T, China Mobile, Deutsche Telecom, Telefonica and Telstra, and the standards body voted to further evaluate OTFS technology.

“As word spreads about Cohere’s novel approach to the wireless waveform, we are seeing increased interest within the industry to investigate its promise,” said Jake Katz, vice president of product management at Cohere Technologies.  “Being a 5G World Award finalist is further affirmation that people who study the wireless industry see potential for Cohere’s OTFS modulation. Every employee at Cohere is proud to see our contribution to 5G recognized alongside major established players in wireless.”

Produced by Informa, a leading business intelligence, academic publishing, knowledge and events business, the awards are held in conjunction with the 5G World conference taking place in London on June 29 and 30.  Finalists were selected by a panel of 10 highly respected industry analysts, with the winner to be announced during an awards ceremony the night of June 29.

Also at 5G World, Cohere’s CEO, Shlomo Rakib, will introduce OTFS as a featured speaker during the first day of the conference, June 29.  He will be speaking on Track 3: Road to 5G at 2:40 pm. To speak with Shlomo or other Cohere executives traveling to 5G World, visit:

About Cohere Technologies
Cohere Technologies is solving the fundamental technical challenges of wireless communications to dramatically increase performance, reliability and coverage with its Orthogonal Time Frequency and Space (OTFS) technology.  OTFS is a new modulation scheme that perfectly captures the wireless channel, delivering substantially increased coverage and spectral efficiency over existing solutions, allowing operators to significantly reduce cost. Combined with traditional modulation schemes, OTFS extends the benefits of its new two-dimensional modulation to existing platforms to enable the future of 5G mobility. Cohere plans to productize OTFS for backhaul, fixed wireless access and 5G.
