The patents granted relate primarily to Rivada’s signature “Dynamic Spectrum Arbitrage (DSA)” technology. DSA enables instant prioritization for users on a mobile network, ensuring that prioritized users are granted first access to a network’s bandwidth during times of crisis or high congestion. The technology underpins Rivada’s offering to public safety agencies by enabling first responders to be given absolute priority to bandwidth during times of emergency.
An additional patent supplements Rivada’s additional location based service technology portfolio. Rivada’s E-LBS technology enables location tracking by allowing devices to triangulate their location relative to other devices, or to fixed landmarks. This enables a location to be identified in three dimensions rather than two.
The patents granted are:
- US Patent 14/961,088: “Method and System for providing Enhanced Location Based Service (ELBS) Trilateration using a single device”
- Mexican Patent 340327: “Methods and Systems for Dynamic Spectrum Arbitrage”
- Australian Patent 2014218801: “Methods and Systems for Dynamic Spectrum Arbitrage, Congestion Management”
- Australian Patent 20160604: “Methods and Systems for Dynamic Spectrum Arbitrage – Adaptive QOS arbitrage”
- Australian Patent 20160614: “Methods and Systems for Dynamic Spectrum Arbitrage (Multi Diverse RAN)”
- Australian Patent 20160623: “Methods and Systems for Dynamic Spectrum Arbitrage – DSC portion of Grid”
- Australian Patent 20160616: “Methods and Systems for Dynamic Spectrum Arbitrage – DSC portion of DSA”
- Australian Patent 20160923: “Methods and Systems for Dynamic Spectrum Arbitrage”
