Quantenna Expands Its 11ax Product Portfolio
The QSR5GU-AX PLUS joins a family of differentiated 802.11ax product offerings from
Integrated dual-band, dual-concurrent 2.4GHz and 5GHz functionality in the same chipset: One chipset optimized for the best overall Wi-Fi performance.
Embedded CPU: This allows full access point and repeater functions to be supported without need for an external CPU, which as a result lowers overall cost and power.
5x5 MIMO capability in the 5GHz band: The addition of a fifth chain allows up to 50 percent more speed, especially in MU-MIMO operation.
Background scanning: Its architecture allows background 5GHz scanning by not interrupting existing data transmissions. This allows superior 5GHz spectrum utilization for improved network capacity.
Always-On DFS: Its advanced algorithm intelligently selects and operates in the cleanest DFS channel including the weather radar channels, which are seldom occupied. This allows QSR5GU-AX PLUS networks to have the maximum performance in dense environments.
“Once again, our 5x5 and 8x8 MIMO technologies are transforming the market, similar to how our innovative 4x4 MIMO products revolutionized the market years ago,” said Dr.
“The significance of 802.11ax lies in its ability to consolidate separate parts of the Wi-Fi ecosystem, from simpler, lower-cost single-band implementations for IoT that can access smaller resource units to complex, high-end dual-band implementations for access points, routers, gateways and set-top boxes,” said Phil Solis, research director, Connectivity and Smartphone Semiconductors at IDC. “With many end devices like smartphones and PCs with 802.11ax ramping up over the next few years and the internet service provider space increasingly acting on their realization of the importance of high-quality Wi-Fi to their offerings, 802.11ax-enabled infrastructure will quickly move from the very high-end to more mainstream offerings.”
