pCell is the result of over a decade of pioneering work, by a small, but extraordinary team, under the leadership of inventor and technology pioneer Steve Perlman.
Artemis Networks LLC is the pioneer of pCell technology, a breakthrough approach to wireless that consistently delivers full-speed data rate to every mobile device concurrently, regardless of how many users are sharing the same spectrum at once, and is compatible with standard LTE devices. Founded by technology pioneer Steve Perlman in early 2000s, and incubated for over a decade by Steve’s Rearden Companies incubator (www.rearden.com), Artemis is based in Mountain View, California. pCell technology is protected by a broad portfolio of fundamental patents, both US and internationally.
Roger van der Laan is a technology inventor with a 20+ year track record of bringing wild ideas to reality. His creative solutions to tough engineering challenges in both real-time software and hardware have resulted in revolutionary products and 70 issued U.S. patents with over 50 more pending.
As Vice President of Engineering and Co-founder of Artemis, Roger is responsible for leading the development and commercial deployment of the complex real-time software and hardware behind pCell technology.
Roger joined Rearden Labs in 2004 and has since co-invented and implemented technologies ranging from the Mova Contour motion capture system used for Brad Pitt’s character in "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button”, which won an Oscar for “Best Achievement in Visual Effects,” to the development of software lens technology, to inventing the core technology for OnLive low-latency cloud gaming technology. As Director of R&D at Delta Beta In-Flight, he designed and built the world’s first self-contained, distributed In-Flight Entertainment system that delivered Video on Demand to each passenger.
Dr. Antonio Forenza has 20 years of R&D and product engineering experience in the wireless industry and academia. As Co-founder and CTO of Artemis Networks, he is responsible for designing system architecture, producing intellectual property, leading research and practical deployment of pCell technology to deliver 5G performance to standard 4G LTE devices.
Prior to Artemis Networks, Antonio worked in a variety of companies in the wireless communication industry including Iospan Wireless (working on channel modeling, physical and link layer design of the first commercial MIMO-OFDM communication system), ArrayComm (carrying out RF propagation studies and designing signal processing algorithms for 3G WCDMA beamforming systems), Samsung SAIT and Freescale (designing link-adaptation and multiuser-MIMO schemes in the LTE and WiMAX standards). In 2005 he developed pCell technology and carried out the first prototyping effort as part of the project at Rearden Labs, that spun out as Artemis Networks in 2014.
Antonio is an inventor of over 40 issued and 170 pending patents worldwide, and has made several standards contributions and international IEEE publications, earning the IEEE Best Student Paper Award at the 2006 Vehicular Technology Conference. He holds an MS degree in Telecommunications Engineering from Politecnico di Torino, a specialization in Mobile Communications from Institut Eurécom, and a PhD in Electrical Engineering from The University of Texas at Austin. He is also an FAA certified private pilot, 2nd Lieutenant at the Civil Air Patrol and FCC licensed amateur radio operator.
Cindy Ievers, VP Finance for Artemis, has 25 years of experience in corporate finance and administration, managing hundreds of millions of dollars in transactions and operational capital. Cindy has provided leadership and strategic direction for all of the finance and administrative functions for Rearden Companies, Artemis’ incubator, for over a decade, as well as developed business plans and financial models for all Rearden incubated companies, and then upon spin out and funding, provided oversight and guidance to the financial teams. Prior to Rearden, Cindy consulted with several startups in a wide range of financial capacities, including financial modeling and analysis, setting up new entity books and reviewing accounting processes and procedures.
Cindy led finance teams for several multi-hundred million dollar financial transactions including the IPO of Talarian (later purchased by TIBCO), the sale of iReady Corporation to NVIDIA and the sale of Digital Pathways to Axent Technologies. Cindy holds a bachelor’s degree from San Jose State University and an MBA from Santa Clara University.
Steve Perlman, Artemis Founder & CEO, is an entrepreneur and inventor devoted to pioneering Internet, entertainment, multimedia, consumer electronics and communications technologies and services. He has 30 years of technology development experience, 25 years of start-up experience, and has been an Apple Principal Scientist and Microsoft Division President. He has a track record of pioneering breakthrough technologies and shaping them into media-rich, mass-market products and services.
Steve's technology work, including the invention of QuickTime, is built into every iPad, iPhone, iPod, Mac, most PCs, and a wide range of video and communication products and services offered by Samsung, Sony, Microsoft, Cisco, Motorola, Panasonic, AT&T, Comcast, DirecTV, Dish, Time Warner Cable, Charter Cable, Philips, RCA, Mitsubishi, Fujitsu and Sega. Products include QuickTime, Macintosh graphics and video, WebTV, the Moxi Media Center, MOVA Contour Facial Capture, and OnLive Cloud Gaming.
Steve's production companies' work includes facial capture for Gravity (2013), Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (2011) and Academy Award®-winning The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (2008), as well as art/production design for Steven Spielberg and Robert Zemeckis for major motion pictures War of the Worlds (2005), Monster House (2006) and Beowulf (2007); and HD video/audio editorial work for Santana, Electronic Arts and independent film. Steve holds over 225 U.S. patents in an array of communications, video, graphics, facial capture, video gaming, software lens, and wireless power technologies.
Fadi Saibi, PhD, is Chief Architect at Artemis Networks where he has been leading development of Artemis’ pCell technology and its easy-to-deploy, real-time, high-performance computing software-defined radio infrastructure since 2012.
Prior to joining Artemis Networks, Dr. Saibi was DSP/Firmware Manager at Aquantia from 2006 to 2012 where he made key contributions to its multi-gigabit Ethernet microchips analog/digital signal processing engine starting from the first test-chip to reaching the 1M+ port shipment milestone.
Dr. Saibi started his career at Bell Labs Research and then Agere Systems, the Lucent Microelectronics spin-off, where he contributed to the research, development and commercialization of several cutting-edge communication systems, pioneering the use of advanced modulations and signal processing over fiber optics and copper media.
Dr. Saibi graduated from Ecole Polytechnique, France in 1999 and received his PhD from Telecom Paris, France in 2005 for doctoral research work he carried out at Lucent Bell Labs.
