Palmira Wireless owns and licenses a global patent portfolio of more than 150 patents related to the IEEE 802.11 WLAN standard, also known as the Wi-Fi standard. The IEEE 802.11 standard is the world’s most widely adopted wireless communication standard providing the basis for fast, efficient, and convenient access to the Internet, as well as facilitating seamless communication and interconnectivity between various devices ranging from smartphones, tablets, computers, printers, and routers to consumer electronics including smart TV’s, refrigerators, washing machines, and IoT implementations.
The Palmira Wireless patent portfolio originates from extensive research and development activities conducted by Toshiba Corporation of Japan. Toshiba’s ground-breaking R&D work led to significant and essential contributions to the 802.11 WLAN standard.
The Palmira Wireless patent portfolio covers key contributions to the 802.11n (also referred to as Wi-Fi 4) and 802.11ac (also referred to as Wi-Fi 5) standards, for example in the areas of physical frame formatting, MIMO pilot signal patterns, efficient block acknowledgements, encryption scheme selection, beamforming techniques, MIMO power-saving methods, and various other improvements.
In particular, the Palmira Wireless patent portfolio describes enhancements for networking efficiency and signal reception probability, as well as for reducing collision probability and processing load, while improving accurate demodulation and backwards compatibility with legacy devices.

Palmira Wireless offers developers, innovators, implementers, and distributors the ability to license a broad and diversified portfolio of patents related to essential aspects of the IEEE 802.11 standard for Wi-Fi 4 and Wi-Fi 5 enabled devices on FRAND – fair, reasonable, and non-discriminatory – terms and conditions.
The Palmira Wireless 802.11 WLAN/Wi-Fi patent portfolio covers essential technology for the following standards:
● IEEE 802.11n
● IEEE 802.11ac
Palmira License Terms
Palmira Wireless’ license rate is calculated on a per product basis, applicable to devices making use of the 802.11n and/or 802.11ac Wi-Fi standards. Provided a potential licensee enters into a Palmira Wireless license agreement, and remains in full compliance with its obligations under such license agreement, the license rate applicable for each product is as follows:
|Product||Reduced License Rate*|
|complies with the IEEE 802.11n standard (but does not comply with IEEE 802.11ac standard)||Access Point Product||0.20% of the net selling price, but no less than US$ 0.20 per product|
|Non-Access Point Product||US$ 0.20 per product|
|complies with the IEEE 802.11ac standard (whether or not it also complies with the IEEE 802.11n standard)||Access Point Product||0.325% of the net selling price, but no less than US$ 0.325 per product|
|Non-Access Point Product||US$ 0.325 per product|
* Standard rates may apply if a license is executed only after court proceedings. Discounts – based on such factors as volume and good faith behavior – are available on both reduced and standard rates.
For purposes of this table:
- An “Access Point” product means a product having a primary function of allowing a wireless device to connect to and directly or indirectly communicate with a computer network. Such products include but are not limited to access points, routers, extenders, and repeaters.
- A “Non-Access Point” product means any product other than an Access Point product. Non-Access Point products typically include but are not limited to laptops, smartphones, smart home devices, tablets, and televisions.
