Quantenna Develops 'World's First' 10G WiFi
FREMONT, Calif. -- Quantenna Communications, Inc., the leader in ultra-high-performance Wi-Fi, today announced that it is developing the world’s first 10G Wi-Fi chipset for a new generation of access points in the home, the enterprise and public spaces. With a novel architecture enabling MIMO configurations up to an unprecedented 8x8, speeds up to 10Gbps and universal support for MU-MIMO clients, Quantenna’s 10G Wi-Fi will deliver unparalleled performance, range and stability.
10G Wi-Fi is the latest in a string of breakthroughs for the Silicon Valley Wi-Fi specialist. Quantenna was the first to deliver 4x4 chipsets for the 802.11n and 802.11ac Wi-Fi standards, and the first to support MU-MIMO, an ingenious technology for transmitting data to multiple devices at once. With those innovations and others such as adaptive beamforming and channel monitoring and optimization, Quantenna’s Wi-Fi reaches farther and transmits faster and more reliably than any other.
"Quantenna’s 8x8 architecture with adaptive beamforming demonstrates that the ‘massive MIMO’ promise of significantly higher throughput, robustness, and reduced interference can be realized in practice,” said Andrea Goldsmith, Stephen Harris Professor of Electrical Engineering at Stanford University. “This architecture will also significantly enhance the capabilities of MU-MIMO, allowing it to support interference-free transmission to many more devices simultaneously. These technology advances will transform the landscape of applications and devices that Wi-Fi can support. As we move into an era of exponentially-growing video usage and the Internet of Things, the 8x8 architecture and MU-MIMO technologies will become essential in all high-performance Wi-Fi devices."
