Born out of a class project at Stanford University, Kumu Networks is commercializing self-interference technology and full-duplex wireless. In this video, co-founder Steven Hong explains how radio self-interference has been a problem since the earliest days of wireless communications. The Kumu approach is the first to cancel out this interference by subtracting the transmitter's signal from its own receiver.
Kumu Networks, backed by top venture firms in Silicon Valley, now aims to apply its technology to applications such as small cell backhaul. In field testing, Kumu significantly boosts spectral efficiency.
