Quantenna Communications, Inc. Launches New Multi-Mode DSL and Fiber Residential Gateway

Quantenna Communications, Inc. announced the launch of a brand new multi-mode DSL and fiber residential gateway that supports with Super Vectoring as well as fiber and includes 4x4 802.11ac Wave 2 Wi-Fi from the company. The Quantenna QSR1000 chipset is capable of delivering speeds up to 1.7Gbps which enables Sunrise subscribers to experience unmatched network performance and Wi-Fi coverage in their home. In addition to speeds, the QSR1000 chipset also supports many advanced features designed to deliver superior security, quality of service, and improved system capacity. Wi-Fi devices are proliferating extremely rapidly around the world. Wi-Fi has become the main and sometimes the sole interface to popular devices like smartphones, tablets, set top boxes, game consoles, TVs and wearables. The emergence of ultra HD constantly requires more bandwidth as well as reliable communications. The need for this level of wireless performance in residential gateways requires novel designs and architecture to support current and future needs. The QSR1000 chipset supports MU-MIMO, which enables simultaneous transmission to several clients. This greatly enhances the overall wireless network capacity inside the house.

MaxLinear Demonstrates Multi-Channel Satellite UHD Reference Design with STMicroelectronics and Quantenna at IBC 2015

MaxLinear Inc. announced it will demonstrate a scalable multi-channel satellite UHD set-top box and media server reference design with STMicroelectronics and Quantenna at the IBC 2015 exhibition in Amsterdam, Sept. 11-15, 2015. The joint reference design combines MaxLinear’s MxL5xx family of Full-Spectrum Capture™ (FSC™) satellite receivers with ST’s STiH418 4Kp60 Ultra High Definition (UHD) decoder and Quantenna’s QSR1000 4x4 802.11ac “Wave 2” WiFi chipset solution. The reference design is highly scalable to address a wide range of functionality and services demanded by leading satellite service providers aiming to deploy next-generation UHD TV and multi-screen, multi-room services. For mid-range UHD personal video recorder (PVR) applications, the platform can be configured with four satellite TV tuners, UHD TV and picture-in-picture (PiP) display, plus transcoding and WiFi streaming of two HD channels to WiFi-enabled client devices. OEMs can also use the reference design as a high-end satellite home media server with advanced services including eight satellite TV tuners, UHD TV and PiP display, transcoding and WiFi streaming of four HD channels to WiFi-enabled client devices, up to eight simultaneous HDD recordings, and fast channel change on multiple TVs. The STiH418 is based on quad-core ARM processors delivering 12K DMIPS, superior 2D/3D graphics performance with a Mali™ GPU, integrated hardware Faroudja® multimedia subsystem with HEVC video decoder, high-performance video encoder and high-quality video pre- and post-processing. The MaxLinear FSC satellite receiver is available as a four-channel network interface module (NIM) based on the MxL541C device, or an eight-channel NIM based on the MxL582C device. Both MaxLinear devices are single chip multi-channel receiver solutions with all major functions integrated, including the low-noise amplifiers (LNAs). The four-channel and eight-channel NIMs plug into the STiH418 motherboard and are available to customers upon request. Quantenna’s QSR1000 is the industry first 802.11ac “Wave 2” WiFi chipset solution. The QSR1000 builds on Quantenna’s True 4x4™ MIMO foundation which enables throughputs of up to 1.7Gbps. With additional support of universal transmit beamforming, four spatial streams and multi-user MIMO (MU-MIMO), the QSR1000 is capable of delivering long range performance even in challenging home or office environments. The chipset is designed for gateways, video bridges and set-top box platforms and enables them to transmit concurrent multiple UHD streams to multiple televisions, with whole-home coverage, over a single wireless network.

Cavium, Inc. Announces Partnership with Quantenna Communication

Cavium, Inc. announced that it has expanded its partnership with Quantenna Communication to deliver high-performance 10G Wave 3 Wi-Fi solutions for campus, home and high-density environments. The newly announced Quantenna True 8x8 QSR10G Wi-Fi platform paired with Cavium's OCTEON III CN71XX high performance, low power quad-core processors will address the capacity, reliability, thermal and security challenges in next generation Wi-Fi access points, routers and gateways. Wi-Fi has now become a ubiquitous utility in home, work and public venues. Social media, online video and home entertainment are driving bandwidth-demanding applications such as real-time video sharing and 4K video streaming. The need for high capacity, flexible and scalable Wi-Fi is greater than ever. With up-to 12 streams and MU-MIMO support, the Quantenna 10G Wave 3 Wi-Fi platform is able to support more clients and more capacity. The 10G-capable CN7130 processor compliments the Quantenna 10G Wave 3 Wi-Fi by providing the ability to process and securely transport data for up to hundreds of users while providing QoS and deep packet inspection (DPI) in a low cost, low power envelope.
