Vubiq Networks: Making Millimeter Wave Ubiquitous
Vubiq Networks, Inc. is a privately held millimeter wave innovation company headquartered in Irvine, California. The company designs, manufactures and markets proprietary, high-bandwidth, millimeter wave wireless transmission products that enable full-duplex, multi-gigabit speed transport with full integration of software-defined layer 2 networking capabilities. In addition, Vubiq Networks continues to innovate in the millimeter wave market with solutions in telecommunications, wireless fabric architecture, RFID tag decoding, Internet of Things, and synthetic aperture radar applications. These and future efforts have been strategically protected by technology patents.
Today, Vubiq Networks’ technology innovation is reflected in a growing portfolio of 14 technology patents plus two additional patent applications in millimeter wave components and system-level network communications. This valuable intellectual property portfolio provides the company with the ability to continue to design and create innovative millimeter wave solutions.
One of the company’s first product efforts during its early phase was the creation and production of a full transmitter and receiver at 60 GHz, including antenna, within a ball grid array (BGA) surface-mount package. This was the world’s first millimeter wave integrated transmitter and receiver in a single module.
Leveraging years of research and development, along with the patented Modular Integrated Waveguide technology, Vubiq Networks has evolved become the innovation leader in point-to-point wireless transmission, development systems, and standalone waveguide technology. Historically focused primarily on V-Band, the company has recently announced the release of an E-Band solution in the 70/80 GHz spectrum. The company’s modular approach and unique development of millimeter waveguide modules provides flexibility to silicon and positions the technology as “spectrum agnostic.”
Vubiq Network’s patented technology provides the company with the flexibility to use any semiconductor type in its product solutions. Not only is this the largest investment, it also determines the performance of the product. This flexible approach is the foundation of Vubiq Network’s ability to increase distance, speed and resolution, as well as provide solutions in other spectrum bands.
