Wireless Expressways, Inc.
San Antonio, TX 78249, US
Wireless Expressways has developed, patented, and deployed new _disruptive _ technology using
_waveguides_ that provide full wireless coverage in warehouses, schools, offices, factories, hospitals, and other indoor facilities.
Wireless Expressways, Inc. “WE” is a spinoff of a successful wireless integration company in San Antonio, Texas. WE systems, based on a predictable engineering approach using _waveguide_ technology, reduce interference and data transmission errors, vastly improving speed, range, reliability, and coverage areas of 2.4 and 5GHz IEEE 802.11a,b,g,n,ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and IoT networks.
Successful beta systems are installed and working in the field.
Twenty eight patents on our technology have been awarded to WE, to date, by the US and foreign patent offices. More are pending. These patents, and more filed, provide a sustainable competitive advantage for WE. “Wireless Expressways” is a registered trademark with the USPTO.
WE was chosen as the “Innovator of the Year in Indoor Networking” by judges from leading wireless companies at CTIA2013, the wireless industry’s annual wireless show of over 25,000 attendees.
WE will sell its expanding line of products in the US and overseas through communications Value Added Resellers, System Integrators, and directly to organizations that have in-house technical staff.
The president of WE, who is also the inventor of the company’s technology and author of its patents, founded two other successful telecom companies, Technical Concepts, Corp., a communications systems integrator, and DataRace, Inc., a data communications equipment manufacturer in San Antonio, Texas, that was listed on NASDAQ.
Another company principal was one of the early developers of Wi-Fi. He was instrumental in establishing the standards that led to Wi-Fi’s phenomenal success while serving on IEEE 802.11 committees for over 10 years.
Wireless systems, e.g., Wi-Fi, are predicted to continue their steep growth for at least the next 6-8 years and will require more robust signal delivery methods in commercial applications. WE believes its technology will become the preferred method of designing and deploying indoor wireless networks.

Waveguide-based Wireless Distribution Systems
Extremely efficient 2.4 and 5Ghz waveguide-based wireless distribution systems that, e.g. can cover a 50,000 square foot warehouse or office complex, multiple school rooms, hospital rooms, etc. with the same high-level, high-speed, signals in all areas of the facility from ONE Access Point (AP).
There are also many applications for WE systems in industrial (IoT) environments. Manufacturing and production facilities that monitor sensors scattered throughout a facility will benefit from WE technology. Beam antennas from a backbone waveguide running through a building can be employed to gather reliable signals from scores of individual sensors with low delay times — unlike MESH networks. Environmentally powered sensors, in particular, will benefit from our waveguide-based networks by providing low signal loss to and from each client area allowing low-power sensors to transmit at very low levels to conserve batteries. Our systems are totally passive and need no maintenance.
