DISH Network L.L.C. Key Developments

DISH Eliminates Wire Clutter with New Wireless Joey

DISH's Wireless Joey(TM) system, available on June 23, 2014, gives consumers the ability to watch TV virtually anywhere in and around the home without the need for wiring. The small client connects wirelessly to the Hopper(R) Whole-Home HD DVR using a dedicated 802.11ac access point. Wireless Joey provides an identical experience to a wired Joey, with full Hopper functionality including the PrimeTime Anytime(R) and AutoHop(TM) features, and the ability to view, record, pause, rewind and fast forward TV content. The Wireless Joey system is the first in the pay-TV industry to apply blazing fast 802.11ac wireless technology, delivering stronger signal propagation and data transfer speeds up to three times faster than pay-TV competitors' wireless video offerings (802.11n and older). Installation includes a Wireless Joey client and a Wireless Joey 802.11ac access point. Connecting directly to the Hopper, the access point creates a dedicated Wi-Fi network that serves up to three Wireless Joey clients. By setting up a dedicated Wi-Fi network separate from a home's existing wireless network, DISH ensures its solution maintains Hopper's high video quality and even works in homes without Internet access. Wireless Joey is powered by a 900MHz 2000 DMIPS BCM7418 processor. Wireless performance for both Wireless Joey and Access Point is driven by a Broadcom BCM4360 802.11ac chip operating at the 5Ghz band. The system features 3x3 MIMO with beam forming internal antennas and auto frequency selection.
