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 video transport, wireless data center solutions, RFID tag decoding, and synthetic aperture radar applications. These and future efforts have been strategically protected by 15 technology patents.
The Innovation Leader
Leveraging years of research and development, along with our patented Modular Integrated Waveguide technology, Vubiq Networks has 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 wave waveguide modules provides silicon flexibility and positions the technology as “spectrum agnostic.”
Our founder and CTO, Mike Pettus brings deep experience in wireless components, circuit and system-level design. He played a significant role in the formation of U.S. unlicensed spectrum rules during their initial development stages.
At the beginning, our group formed a strategic partnership agreement that made available the latest high-frequency silicon process technologies. This arrangement enabled creation of some of the first single-chip millimeter wave development systems and communications products. We have been known as a thought leader for the commercialization of very high throughput wireless innovation and were the first global firm to offer components and development systems using silicon-based millimeter wave integrated circuits.
