To effectively build long-lasting ecosystems of interoperable, wirelessly powered devices, manufacturers need a global technology standard to follow. Real wireless power delivers energy without plugs, wires, or charging pads. It should power multiple devices in motion, without a line of sight, and at a distance. A global standard will bring this kind of technology to the masses quickly and efficiently. Read Ossia's press release here.
The Benefits of a Global Standard for Wireless Power Technology
A global wireless power standard enables:
- Wireless power device development and implementations across countries and companies
- Fast development and growth of wireless power systems and products
- Seamless communication and interoperability between wireless power transmitters and receivers
- Confident adoption of wireless power delivery to customers and employees
Without a universal standard, we are holding ourselves back. Strength of innovation and application comes in numbers; many people and companies who work together can develop a useful and usable wireless ecosystem for everyone to use much faster than each of us in isolation.
Wireless Power Standard Released to OEMs
That’s why we have released the first global wireless power technology standard: Ossia’s Cota Standard 1.0. And it’s available now.
It’s an exciting time. With the Cota Standard 1.0, original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) around the world can speak the same language when developing Cota Real Wireless Power products.
What You Can Expect with Cota Standard 1.0
The Cota Standard 1.0 ensures that manufacturers can customize wireless power systems and maintain interoperability with designs from other companies around the world. The standard also:
- Defines the methods used to deliver wireless power
- Documents the various implementations and compatibility requisites for interoperability
- Specifies how a Cota Power Transmitter interacts with one or more Cota Receivers
Cota is real wireless power. No cables. No charging mats. No line-of-sight requirements. Cota is inherently safe and does not interfere with other wireless technologies. All Cota-enabled devices can be activated, managed, and monitored via the Cota Cloud platform. The standard shows how to make this work.
The Future of Applying Wireless Power in the Real World Starts Here
Ossia’s Cota Standard 1.0 is another significant step in bringing the era of real wireless power to the here and now.
Anyone who has a Cota-enabled device can access wireless power at work, airports, hospitals, and other locations, with appropriate permissions.
And any company that makes Cota-enabled security sensors will ensure that these sensors will safely charge in any location that has a Cota Power Transmitter, whether it’s an office building or data center, even over long distances.
