Steve Perlman was right, when talking about asking the right questions. The way this amazing new wireless tech works is that it actively cancels out interference at the transmitter, instead of just maximizing the received signal, it's a creative new way to look at the problem of channel utilization.
It's a form of spatial multiplexing, with some additional math on top of it. They derive a set of coefficients describing the channel from every transmitter to every receiver. Then they tweak the values of the channels in a matrix such that they aim the nulls in transmission for a given channel at receivers who don't want to receive it.
This allows you to send more signals to those who want it, while avoiding sending it to those who don't want it. This is done with multiple transmitters, to multiple receivers, all at the same time, and the coefficient matrix is kept updated along the way.
Channel capacity is proportional to S/N. If a single transmitted signal is 20 db over the noise floor, and you can reduce the level of interference below that value, you could get 100 times the original bandwidth for a given system and this tech can do just that.
