SAN DIEGO -- It was announced today that Kiyon, Inc of La Jolla, CA has been selected by the World Economic Forum of Geneva, Switzerland as one of its worldwide Technology Pioneers for 2005. The World Economic Forum is known for its gathering held annually in Davos, Switzerland that attracts government and business leaders from around the world such as Bill Gates, who is a co-chair of the event. The 29 companies selected as Technology Pioneers for 2005 are developing and applying the most innovative and transformational technologies in their area, and include nanotechnology, drug development, renewable energy and wireless technology. To be selected, the company must have the potential to significantly impact the way business and society operates.

Kiyon was selected as a Technology Pioneer based on its innovative solution aimed at the center of converging trends involving wireless mobility, ubiquitous connectivity and an evolution of all communications media toward a common packet-based Internet Protocol. The Kiyon Autonomic Network (KAN) software is built around a modified WiFi/ 802.11 MAC, which allows for QoS and complete broadband and TCP/IP throughput over multiple hops in a wireless mesh network. Kiyon’s software kernel is downloadable to any client or consumer electronic device for P2P usage (or embeddable in any 802.11a/b/g, Ultra-Wideband, or WiMax chipset) and solves the key throughput problem for wireless broadband transmission guaranteeing at least 2 Mbps of broadband for each client, while continually self-managing all network and application functions automatically. Kiyon’s technology has broad appeal as an “Operating System for Convergence” for a growing list of high bandwidth applications connected by WiFi, UWB or other wireless enabled device in the home, business, or industrial setting.

“Kiyon is proud to be among the World Economic Forum Class of 2005 Technology Pioneers,” stated Dr. Michael Nova, Founder and CEO of Kiyon. “This is a recognition of an irreversible trend toward ubiquitous wireless connectivity, and Kiyon’s ability to deliver the software solution that will seamlessly link this expanding universe of mobile devices. KAN is the only wireless mesh technology that can run high-level protocols and multimedia, including mesh VoIP, streaming and real-time video, home Audio-Visual streaming, RFID and supply-chain applications, and many others requiring substantial bandwidth over any radio.”
