NETGEAR, Inc. Uses Quantenna Communications, Inc.'s QSR1000 802.11ac Wave 2 Chipset to Drive it's New Nighthawk X4 Smart WiFi Router

Quantenna Communications, Inc. announced that NETGEAR, Inc. is using Quantenna’s QSR1000 802.11ac Wave 2 chipset to drive it's new Nighthawk X4 Smart WiFi Router to new heights of gaming and video performance. Quantenna’s architecture enables speeds up to 1.7 Gbps on the 5 GHz band, using Wave 24 x 4 MIMO and universal beam forming to deliver long range performance even in challenging home or office environments.

ASUS Computer International Launches RT-AC87 Dual-Band Wireless-AC2400 Gigabit Router with Quantenna Communications, Inc

ASUS Computer International launched the ASUS RT-AC87, the Wave 2 802.11ac consumer router and 5 GHz with speeds up to 1.73Gbps. Powered by Quantenna Communications, Inc.'s QSR1000 4x4 Multi-User Multiple Input Multiple Output (MU-MIMO) chipset, the ASUS RT-AC87 offers unparalleled speed and range for a superior wireless experience. The ASUS RT-AC87, powered by Quantenna, offers unparalleled speed and range for a superior wireless experience. The RT-AC87 utilizes four external antennas and Universal Beamforming to maximize range throughout the home or office, improving signal strength and performance even to older 802.11a/b/g/n clients. Capable of reaching speeds up to 1.73Gbps(1), the RT-AC87 is ideal for HD-grade video, ultra-low-latency gaming and heavy file sharing. Its breakthrough MU-MIMO technology enables it to stream rich content to multiple devices in every corner of a home, in Full 1080p or 4K Ultra HD resolution. With MU-MIMO, the RT-AC87 can form groups of multiple devices that can be served at the same time, simultaneously. Previous 802.11n and 802.11ac routers can stream to only one device at a time. MU-MIMO greatly increases the efficiency of the Wi-Fi network, mitigating potential bottlenecks as more devices are connected to the access point. Furthermore, the RT-AC87's multiple antennas, coupled with its advanced beamforming, reduce the transmission's signal-to-noise ratio and improve the reliability of the Wi-Fi signal, providing a better overall wireless experience. The most advanced built-in parental controls in mainstream routers today, RT-AC87 features AiProtection with Trend Micro that uses real-time network monitoring to detect malware and other intrusions before it reaches PC or device. With extensive testing and development across all networking products, RT-AC87 is specially-designed to work with adapters, media players and other wireless devices to deliver the best performance even supporting the latest gen gaming consoles Xbox One and PlayStation 4. ASUS AiCloud 2.0 is an exclusive application that turns the router into a powerful personal cloud server. Files stored on the network, on attached USB storage devices or on ASUS WebStorage are effortlessly synchronized using the ASUS Smart Sync feature. Easily share files with friends, colleagues and family members simply by sending a link via email, text message or popular social-networking apps. Users can access their data via the AiCloud web interface or the free AiCloud app for Android and iOS devices so they can sync, share and stream content anywhere. The ASUS RT-AC87 router will be available in North America shortly for an estimated MSRP of $269.99.

Quantenna Communications, Inc. Showcases 4x4 Mu-Mimo 802.11Ac System at The Cable Show 2014

Quantenna Communications, Inc. announced it is demonstrating 4x4 MU-MIMO 802.11ac system at The Cable Show. Featuring the QSR1000, Quantenna is showing how MU-MIMO improves user experience while optimizing network efficiency to conserve precious spectrum resources. The full potential of complex MIMO access points is not being realized due to the dominance of mobile devices and challenging channels. The performance of complex MIMO access points could be further enhanced with MU-MIMO which allows concurrent transmissions to multiple devices, therefore increasing spectral efficiency and network performance. Massive/high order MIMO access points can now establish simultaneous communication to several lower order clients like single antenna mobile devices. This improves spectral efficiency resulting in higher performance in the same channels.
