Cygnus Broadband to Demo at Telecom Council of Silicon Valley TC3 Event

Cygnus' advanced eQoE packet inspection technology improves video session throughput of LTE cells by up to 25%

OTTAWA, CANADA--(Marketwired - Sept. 17, 2013) - Cygnus Broadband ("Cygnus"), the Quality of Experience ("QoE") specialists for rich media streaming, the research and development subsidiary of Wi-LAN Inc. ("WiLAN")(TSX:WIN)(NASDAQ:WILN), today announced that Cygnus will demonstrate its eQoE™ software at this year's Telecom Council of Silicon Valley TC3 event that is scheduled to take place September 18 - 19, 2013, at the Juniper Networks campus in Sunnyvale, CA. For more information on TC3 visit http://www.telecomcouncil.com/tc3/.

Cygnus' eQoE™ software looks at application-layer video traffic passing through an LTE cell. It uses packet inspection to accurately estimate the quantity of video queued in each user's device buffer, then dynamically adjusts the flow to that device accordingly. The result is a smooth video experience for mobile users that automatically adapts to cell congestion while preserving fair treatment of non-video data.

Cygnus' eQoE™ technology improves both network efficiency and quality by considering the unique needs of each user application generating traffic in a network and selectively allocating resources to maximize user experience. With eQoE™, LTE cells can be driven deeper into congestion. For example, eQoE™ maximizes utilization of installed equipment by up to 15%. In addition, implementing eQoE™ can increase the number of simultaneous streaming video sessions that can be supported in each cell by up to 25%. Cygnus' technology is compatible with other technologies such as adaptive streaming and transcoding.

Cygnus' technology is available for license. For more information please visit the Cygnus Broadband www site at www.cygnusbroadband.com.
