BARCELONA, Spain, Feb. 24, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MOBILE WORLD CONGRESS -- InterDigital, Inc. (Nasdaq:IDCC), a wireless research and development company, today announced that the company has developed a 3.5GHz shared spectrum radio solution with Quality of Service (QoS) guarantees that are negotiated with spectrum databases. The initiative, the first public demonstration of its kind, makes available a new tier of guaranteed service, and is an important step in making shared spectrum an operator-ready technology.

InterDigital's 3.5GHz and TVWS dual transceiver with guaranteed QoS service software in conjunction with Spectrum Bridge's shared spectrum database is being demonstrated this week at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. The solution addresses a key component of shared spectrum usage, which is an interference-free quality of service in 3.5GHz band, recently proposed by the President's Council of Advisers of Science and Technology (PCAST).

"The development of a 3.5GHz radio with guaranteed QoS is a major development in this field of research, and continues to position InterDigital as one of the market leaders in dynamic spectrum research and technologies that are finding new sources of bandwidth," said Fred Schreider, Director of Engineering, InterDigital Labs and one of the research team's leads. "This development comes on the heels of some of InterDigital's groundbreaking TV White space research – indeed, our radio is a dual-mode 3.5GHz/TV White Space radio – and clearly positions our research as among the most innovative and advanced in this nascent technology space."

InterDigital's 3.5GHz radio solution with guaranteed QoS will be featured at InterDigital's pavilion in Hall 7 Stand 7A71.
