Interference is undoubtedly a major problem with regard to today’s wireless communications. That being said, one startup company claims to have developed technology for enabling “life without interference.” That company is Austin-based GenXComm, which was founded in 2016 and recently announced the closing of a fully-subscribed round of seed financing.

Earlier this year, GenXComm unveiled its simultaneous self-interference cancellation (S-SIX) technology. This technology is the result of several years of R&D efforts at the University of Texas at Austin. The company is targeting Wi-Fi, backhaul, and 5G markets, with the technology being intended for handsets, tablets, laptops, and more.

With S-SIX technology, the objective is to enable simultaneous transmission and reception of signals—in the same channel. Thus, radios can essentially listen and talk at the same time. In essence, GenXComm believes its technology can enable true full-duplex communications.
