About Us

Federated Wireless is unlocking a spectrum of possibilities, leading the wireless industry through the shared spectrum revolution.

Overview

Industry changing, innovative technologies are the heritage of Federated Wireless. Our innovation can be traced back to our founding scientists and their work at the Hume Center, [email protected] at Virginia Tech, and government agencies, such as DoD and DARPA. Dr. Charles Clancy is the co-author of Spectrum Sharing strategy. Dr. Jeff Reed was a member of The United States President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology (PCAST) and was influential in shaping the shared spectrum model adopted by the FCC. Dr. Robert McGwier is one of the foremost leading scientists in telecommunication systems engineering along with Dr. Joe Mitola who laid the foundation for spectrum-sensing cognitive radio.

Our parent company is Allied Minds, who partners with universities and federal research institutions to develop new technologies, bridging the commercial gap by creating businesses based on these technologies.

Federated Wireless is led by CEO Iyad Tarazi and a team of industry veterans who continue to build on this heritage, pioneering new territory in the commercialization of shared spectrum.
