WiChorus Secures $18 million in Series C Funding

WiChorus, a start-up based in San Jose, California, secured $18 million in series C funding for its scalable platforms for Smart 4G Networks. Pinnacle Ventures led the oversubscribed up-round, which included existing investors Redpoint Ventures, Mayfield Fund and Accel Partners. This brings total funding in the company to $43 million.

WiChorus' SmartCore platforms enable operators to deploy smart WiMAX and LTE networks with advanced service and subscriber management, content management, and network optimizations, and to monetize the Internet for increased ARPU and profitability.

  • WiChorus was founded by Rehan Jalil, who previously served as chief architect of WiMAX for Aperto Networks.
