GERMANTOWN, Md. -- Cognio, the leader in cognitive spectrum analysis for wireless networks, today announced that Streakwave Wireless, a west coast distributor in San Jose, will be the first distribution partner in the United States to sell Cognio's successful line of Spectrum Expert solutions. Streakwave Wireless catapults Cognio's market reach by expanding availability of their award-winning product portfolio, and is well positioned to supply spectrum analysis solutions to enterprise customers and service providers who work with wireless operators, hot spot providers and local city governments throughout the US.
Cognio delivers enterprise-class spectrum analysis solutions for a
range of WLAN applications including, WISPs, hot spot providers,
municipal network operators, RFID deployments, service providers and IT
system administrators; all of whom use wireless networks for mission
critical business applications.
"We are pleased to bring Streakwave Wireless on board to help
represent us in the United States," said Greg Barone, vice
president of sales for Cognio. "Streakwave Wireless will be a
strong partner for us given their extensive customer base, ability to
open up new markets for Cognio and target new vertical markets for
Cognio's product set. Together we will lay the groundwork for
next-generation applications like voice over WiFi."
Cognio's Spectrum Expert solution delivers the tools to
network IT managers that go beyond traditional spectrum analysis to
actively "decode" the wireless spectrum--providing for the
first time a clear and comprehensive picture of the devices using the
wireless networking environment. This clarity helps system
administrators, wireless ISPs (WISPs) field technicians, installers,
integrators and service fleet managers actively monitor the wireless
spectrum, keeping it more secure and operating at peak performance. IT
managers now have a system that provides a complete picture of the
network, making it as easy, if not easier, to manage and maintain than
the traditional wired network.
"We are excited to add Cognio's Spectrum Expert to our
product mix," said Carl Moberg, president of Streakwave Wireless.
"Cognio is a market leader in this industry with the ability to
support enterprises planning to add WiFi-based services to their WLAN,
and their Spectrum Expert solutions address a clear need for our
customers. Cognio's products allow our sales force to provide key
solutions to our customers and partners, in turn, expanding their tool
set to accurately detect, assess and solve issues surrounding critical
Spectrum Expert technology supports all bands -- unlicensed 2.4 and
5GHz, in addition to the newly adopted 4.9GHz band for public safety
networks. It captures and names the interference caused by Bluetooth
devices, cordless phones, fax machines and 50Hz microwave ovens. As
devices continue to proliferate, the importance of actively managing the
physical layer and addressing interferers before the network is impacted
becomes paramount. Bluetooth devices can be especially challenging to
most traditional spectrum analysis tools because they hop between
frequencies. Cognio's Spectrum Expert has the intelligence and
ease-of-use features to locate and name these devices unlike most other
competitors in the market.
Founded in 2001, Cognio is the leading innovator of cognitive
spectrum-analysis products. Cognio's technology monitors wireless
networks and solves wireless network problems. Cognio's products
are applicable to a wide range of bands, including 802.11. Cognio is
headquartered in the greater Washington, DC area, and is privately held
with venture investments from North Bridge Venture Partners and ABS
Ventures. Additional information is available on the web at
