The Brazos patent portfolio covers mainstream technologies in numerous large global markets and is organized into four lots, including; Cellular Systems, IP Networks, Optical Communications and WLAN.
These patents address nearly all important aspects of cellular and mobile communications technologies. The technologies are used in mobile devices, base stations, and cellular infrastructure at the network, device, and chip-set levels. These patented technologies are foundational to implementations of 5G, 4G and 3G standards.
These patents cover technologies necessary for setting up and managing modern enterprise networks and cloud services, including QoS and other prioritization of packets; link aggregation (e.g., aggregating links from different physical devices); load balancing network nodes to avoid overburdening any one portion of the network; detecting and solving traffic congestion; and preventing and recovering from node failures without disrupting traffic.
These patents address key optical technologies such as WDM transponder technology, PON architecture and future flexible TDM PON, modulation techniques including mode division multiplexing, amplifiers, planar photonics integrated devices, network management, and photonic sensor technology.
These patents address several important aspects of WLAN-based systems. These patents are highly relevant to WLAN applications such as P2P/D2D communications, Mesh/Mobile Ad-hoc networks, IoT, as well as conventional Wi-Fi networks. Scope of coverage includes system-level implementations as well as protocol-level details.
