The patents include:
- U.S. Patent Application No. 14/097195 – The “Systems And Methods To Configure Applications,” relates to the means to install and configure different applications using a common interface, and allows users to conveniently manage a portfolio of applications types using a common set of tools. The primary benefit of this approach is the ability to address multiple types of applications used via remote clients or remote computing devices. This patent is one of two patents invented by PowWow Mobile co-founder and Chief Technology Officer, Jonathan Kaplan.
- U.S. Patent Application No. 13/256749 – The “Systems And Methods For Improved Wireless Interface Aggregation,” relates to the means by which multiple wireless network interfaces can be aggregated. The primary benefit of this approach is that the overall throughput rate is greater than the sum of the individual wireless network interfaces unto themselves, yielding advanced performance at the endpoint device, such as a smartphone or tablet.
This second patent is one of five others that arose from research developed within the Networks and Mobile Computing Research Laboratory at the Georgia Institute of Technology, for which PowWow holds an exclusive global license from the Georgia Tech Research Corp. (GTRC), arising from its acquisition of StarMobile Inc. in 2016. last year. That intellectual property was commercialized through VentureLab, the #2 ranked university-based business incubator in the world, under grants from the Georgia Research Alliance (GRA) and the National Science Foundation (NSF), and at the Advance Technology Development Center (ATDC) at the Georgia Institute of Technology.
“These patents are critical building blocks of our current product capabilities and represent an important milestone for PowWow Mobile, as we advance our efforts in building a robust IP portfolio in support of our Rapid Mobile App Development technology,” said Kia Behnia, CEO of PowWow Mobile. “Our vision is to be the platform of choice for both IT and Lines of Business to design, build and run enterprise mobile apps quickly, simply and cost-effectively. These patents are indicative of our commitment to innovation as the basis of our current and future product roadmap.”
