Our core technology originated from university research at the University of California, Irvine and EPFL, Switzerland. The original goal of the research was to utilize all available networks (Wi-Fi, 3G, Bluetooth) to speed up video streaming to groups of mobile devices.
Shoelace Wireless was created to commercialize and further develop the technology. The name "Shoelace Wireless" was inspired by the idea of "Tying Multiple Networks and Devices Together". The founding team included two EECS professors and two, then, graduate students from UC Irvine and EPFL.
Soon after, Shoelace received grants from the National Science Foundation (NSF SBIR) and from EPFL (Innogrant) and started in the CalIT2 TechPortal. Shoelace is currently incubated at EvoNexus Irvine.
