Wi-LAN Inc.[edit]

Main article: WiLAN

He collaborated on many patents in wireless communications, signal representation and estimation. Based on his patents in WOFDM (Wide-band Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing) he co-founded Wi-LAN Inc.[11] in 1992.

In 1997, Dr. Hatim Zaghloul learnt that Hedy Lamarr was never compensated for her invention of frequency hopping spread spectrum.[12] He contacted Hedy Lamarr and signed an agreement giving Wi-LAN Inc. 49% rights to her patent for marketing purposes at an undisclosed sum. He worked with Hedy till her death in 2000 to promote the patent and establish its value.

Other Business Activities[edit]

Based on his collaboration with Dr. Fattouche on Super-Resolution, Dr. Zaghloul also co-founded Cell-Loc Inc. in 1995 (which became Cell-Loc Location Technologies Inc. in 2003), the developer of a family of network-based wireless location products that enable location-sensitive services of people and assets using a small portable device.[6] In 2005, he cofounded with his friend, Dr. Syed Amr Elahamasy, Innovative Products for Life Inc.,[13] a technology commercialization company. Their first product was an attachment for commercial blenders that would remove grease from fried foods. This work has led to a patent on the technology.[5] Over the years, Zaghloul joined the boards of many companies: NTG Clarity Inc.[14] from 1997 to 2001, Imaging Dynamics[15] from 2000 to 2001, Powerstar International Inc. (and Solutrea Corp.) from 2007-2008. QCC Technologies from 1999 to 2001, IPL Media Inc. for Technology from 2009 to the present. IPL Media Inc. vision is that one day bold ideas will be within everybody’s reach. They see a world of opportunities and dreams that can turn into reality. IPL Media was incorporated in 2005 in Alberta, Canada, by Hatim Zaghloul as a publishing house and webdesign agency. Early 2006 IPL Media started negotiations with a Romanian web studio for work on several projects. The two got along very well and later that year they were partners. This alliance has many advantages including a large international experience and credibility brought by IPL Media and acclaimed professionals from the Romanian side. They are now able to cover two distant time zones as we are operating both from the Calgary, Alberta and Bucharest, offices. The company was incorporated as an investment company in Egypt in 2009 to cover Middle East area. All their staff (including the management) are at least university graduates in their fields of expertise and are constantly training to meet higher expectations. In Bucharest they are running R&D operations in order to bring the future closer to everybody or simply to improve the present. Each project they are developing benefits from optimizations and improvements brought by this department. They are also responsible with some of the new ideas IPL Media is bringing to light, alongside the Marketing department. http://www.iplmedia.com/index.html

Hatim Zaghloul, Ph.D. Co-founder, Technology Adviser of Infinnet Technologies Ltd. http://www.infinnettechnologies.com/company/ Quantitative Value and Momentum Investment Systems. Hatim is a successful entrepreneur and technology innovator with a 25 year track record of developing successful businesses. Hatim is best known as the co-founder and CEO of Wi-LAN Inc., a publicly traded company listed on TSX and NASDAQ stock exchanges with a market value of over $600 million. As adviser to Infinnet Hatim will use his extensive experience to help the company effectively monetize it’s intellectual property and access international markets. Hatim earned his Ph.D. in Physics from the University of Calgary and Bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering from Cairo University, Egypt.The company is an Emerging Leader in Financial Market Analytics. This unique company roots stem from the 2008 credit crisis which provided the catalyst for the founders to develop more effective methods to help investors and fund managers better manage risk and identify opportunities. The broad stock market as defined by S&P 500 Index declined 47% from peak to trough during the credit crisis. It was the massive impact of the “market crash” on the lives of millions of investors that propelled its founder, Suhail Ahmad to establish Infinnet Corporation in late 2009 in Calgary, Canada followed by its sister company Infinnet Technologies Ltd. in 2012 to particularly serve its institutional clients based in Edinburgh, UK.
