Cognitive Systems has announced that its highly-accurate WiFi Motion™ detection software will be integrated into MaxLinear’s cutting-edge broadband and access SoCs. Through this partnership, patented WiFi Motion technology from Cognitive Systems will run on MaxLinear chips, enabling next-generation Wi-Fi sensing applications such as home monitoring, wellness monitoring, and smart home automation.

“Service providers are constantly looking for innovative ways to evolve user experience and provide differentiated value for customers,” said Taj Manku, co-founder and CEO of Cognitive Systems. “Together with partners like MaxLinear, we are creating future-forward technologies that will transform the home services industry.”

Since 2014, Cognitive Systems has designed, developed, and implemented the first and most sophisticated Wi-Fi-enabled motion sensing software in market, expanding how Wi-Fi networks are used. The breakthrough technology leverages connected IoT devices to transform the entire home into a motion-sensing network without any additional hardware. Cognitive Systems first launched a home monitoring product, called Home Aware, and recently expanded its offerings by launching Caregiver Aware, a revolutionary product for elder care. In addition to expanding its product portfolio, Cognitive Systems has optimized its rapid integration process. WiFi Motion is now available on most access points, and since 2020, its availability has grown to over 2.5 million.

WiFi Motion software is implemented as a function of MaxLinear’s suite of gateway and access platforms, including Wi-Fi, fiber, DOCSIS, and xDSL products. Including its latest generation Wi-Fi 7 product, MaxLinear Wi-Fi offerings deliver a fast, reliable, and responsive experience and are well-suited for next-gen Wi-Fi-enabled motion detection. Coupled with MaxLinear AnyWAN™ — the industry’s first single-chip SoC that targets Fiber-to-the-Home, Fixed Wireless Access, DOCSIS, and ethernet gateways and modems — service providers and home gateway designers have a set of highly-optimizable access solutions enhanced with leading functionalities such as motion sensing, which consumers are coming to expect.

“Service providers are eagerly looking for next-gen Wi-Fi capabilities to gain an advantage in the marketplace,” said Doron Tal, VP Broadband Access of MaxLinear. “MaxLinear’s robust gateway and access platforms deliver leading user experience consumers expect from their in-home connectivity. Integrating Cognitive Systems’ WiFi Motion into these platforms continues to provide users with an unparalleled experience with connectivity access and a wide range of new home services.”

Through this partnership, WiFi Motion will be available on nearly every Wi-Fi access point.
WiFi Motion-enhanced access point products fromn MaxLinear will be available to Internet Service Providers in H1 2023.
