Inc. ("NextBend" or the "Company”) is the pioneer
of flexible modular systems that turn exceedingly complex digital
technologies into consumer-friendly appliances. Our patented UniStac
Personal DataCenter™ platform makes it easy for home
users and small businesses to buy and use digital technology. The
UniStac™ integrates diverse digital products into a single comprehensive
system, a datacenter for for the rest of us that is both reliable
and easy to buy and use.
form factor compatibility, integrated cooling, wire-free interconnections,
and automatic discovery & self-configuration, our UniStac
Personal DataCenter™ significantly increases efficiency
in the development, manufacturing, delivery, and use of digital products.
The UniStac Personal DataCenter™ gives product
developers & manufacturers a clear path to interoperability, significantly
reduced time-to-market, and lower production and support costs. And
Consumers benefit by being able to assemble a fully customized, compatible
collection of digital appliances (Decks™) that form the UniStac
Personal DataCenter™, over time as their needs and
technologies apply across a broad range of industries, markets and
applications. However, the Company's initial focus is on solutions
for the home entertainment, networking and communications space. Our
UniStac Personal DataCenter™ approach breaks
through the logjam that has restricted growth in this sector. We have
designed a powerful, affordable, expandable home datacenter platform
that provides immediate benefits for consumers, broadband providers,
application developers, and everyone involved in delivering on the
rich promise of the digital home lifestyle.
is talking about the Triple Play: voice, video and data delivered
through a broadband pipe. But the question remains – into what?
In answer to that question NextBend has designed the UniStac
Personal DataCenter™. The UniStac Personal
DataCenter™ is the ideal customer premises equipment
for broadband providers. A core set of Decks is deployed to broadband
subscribers on a sale or lease basis. Additional Decks, that provide
new applicatons, capacity and services, will then produce additional
recurring revenues. The subscriber instantly installs these new Decks
by simply stacking them on to their existing UniStac Personal
DataCenter™. The UniStac reduces truck rolls and support
costs for service providers while increasing subscriber loyalty.
Company's strategy is to encourage rapid adoption of the UniStac
Personal DataCenter™ platform by partnering with leading
broadband providers, consumer electronics manufacturers and application
developers. Licensing our core intellectual property and associated
technologies will create a broad multi-vendor eco system of home datacenter
products, competing on the basis of form, function and price. We seek
licensees and strategic partners to develop, market and sell these
new UniStac Personal DataCenter™ products.
the pioneer of the field, we have built a broad intellectual property
portfolio protecting our methodology, apparatus and associated technologies.
NextBend holds the rights to three key US patents (issued) that provide
both broad and strategic protection and create significant barriers
to entry. Licensing NextBend’s patented UniStac Personal
DataCenter™ technology will enable product companies
to create a new universe of interoperable digital products that reduce
wiring complexity, increase reliability and product life cycles while
creating significant new revenue streams and distribution channels.
And UniStac™ maintains and enhances brand visibility for our
licensees. Decks may be designed with their company logos and colors,
giving every product a visual brand presence in the stacked home datacenter
system. Combining UniStac Personal DataCenter™
technological advantages with established brands will speed adoption
and reduce marketing costs.
Company has designed and built concept prototypes and is positioned
to offer technical, engineering and product design assistance to partner
companies. In conjunction with our partners we have developed software
for automatic product discovery/registration and a messaging protocol
for inter-Deck communications. The Company expects strong licensing
revenues as well as revenues from product development collaborations.
We believe we will enhance our partners' and licensees’ competitive
advantages and allow them to create superior products and greater
