PALO ALTO, Calif. – Inpixon (Nasdaq: INPX), a leading indoor positioning and data analytics company, today announced it has received a Notice of Allowance from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office allowing its patent application covering techniques to expedite joins of large database tables.
"Many existing data tools are not equipped to take advantage of emerging high-performance computing technology," noted Adam Benson, Inpixon CTO. One problem area is performing a query that requires joining two tables. Current techniques do not perform the join efficiently, and may not scale well with the number of tables to be joined in the query. Additional problems can arise when a node of a distributed database goes offline.
"The company believes embodiments of our patent can address these and other problems, enabling organizational decision makers to deliver quicker, higher quality, data-driven insights," Mr. Benson said.
This latest patent allowance comes on the heels of Inpixon's recently awarded patent for its dynamic policy system for indoor positioning and security of mobile devices. US Patent # 10,178,525 B2, titled, "Context-based dynamic policy system for mobile devices and supporting network infrastructure," covers techniques to dynamically adapt network policies for mobile devices by accessing context-based values to allocate or restrict capabilities on the mobile devices or within the network. The patent protects, among other things, some of the proprietary ways in which the Inpixon Indoor Positioning Analytics (IPA) platform interacts with an endpoint policy management unit, such as a Mobile Device Management (MDM) solution.
"Inpixon's R&D investments have allowed us to secure key patents that we believe are important additions to our patent portfolio, which will help us continue to develop new, innovative technologies," said Nadir Ali, Inpixon CEO. "In addition to our patents, our proprietary hardware, software and the way in which we employ artificial intelligence machine learning are additional IP assets. Generally, these types of assets are expected to allow a company to innovate faster, to differentiate its offerings, and to build defensible competitive positions. They can also enable a company to pursue strategic business deals and to address licensing opportunities. Additionally, patents allow a company to protect itself in cases of patent infringement or IP theft, and to pursue legal action and recovery of potential damages where patent infringement is suspected."

While management has based any forward-looking statements included in this release on its current expectations, the information on which such expectations were based may change. These forward-looking statements rely on a number of assumptions concerning future events and are subject to a number of risks, uncertainties and other factors, many of which are outside of the control of Inpixon and its subsidiaries, which could cause actual results to materially differ from such statements. Such risks, uncertainties, and other factors include, but are not limited to, the fluctuation of economic conditions, the performance of management and employees, Inpixon’s ability to obtain financing, competition, general economic conditions and other factors that are detailed in Inpixon’s periodic and current reports available for review at sec.gov. In addition, a notice of allowance is a written notification issued after the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office makes a determination that a patent can be granted from an application. The vast majority of patent applications that receive a notice of allowance will proceed to issue as a U.S. patent; however, a notice of allowance is not a guarantee of patent issuance. Furthermore, Inpixon operates in a highly competitive and rapidly changing environment where new and unanticipated risks may arise.
