Paragonís Value Proposition to the Wi-Max Chipsets Market
Both licensed (802.16) and unlicensed (extensions of 802.11a/g) versions of Wi-Max use OFDM modulations with high PAPR, and therefore demand the use of expensive, high dynamic range PAís. Paragonís technology potentially allows:
* Significantly reducing cost by enhancing less expensive WLAN amplifiers
* ~40% increase in the transmission range by doubling output power
* Ease of cooling requirements by decreasing power consumption
Paragon also develops indoor and outdoor bi-directional booster amplifiers, used for range increase of OFDM based Wi-Max systems.
