FREMONT, CA--(Marketwired - July 01, 2016) - Quantenna Communications, Inc., a leader in ultra-high performance Wi-Fi®, announces today that its QSR1000 4x4 802.11ac Wi-Fi solutions have been selected as part of the updated test bed for the Wi-Fi Alliance® Wi-Fi CERTIFIED™ ac interoperability certification. A new set of wave 2 features are added to help achieve evolutionary improvements in speed, range, efficiency and capability to Wi-Fi networks.
Quantenna was the first company to launch 4x4 MU-MIMO 802.11ac solutions with its QSR1000 4x4 802.11ac Wave 2 Chipset Family. MU-MIMO is among the most anticipated new features of Wi-Fi CERTIFIED ac, which improves Wi-Fi network performance by transmitting data to multiple devices simultaneously and optimizing spectral efficiency.
In addition, the Wi-Fi Alliance also selected Quantenna to provide the first wave 2 compatible Wi-Fi sniffer for the test bed. The sniffer captures and analyzes the Wi-Fi transmissions exchanged during the testing to establish compliance of the tested devices.
"The vision of delivering the best Wi-Fi solutions is driven by the relentless efforts of the Quantenna team, and includes enabling interoperability of new features like MU-MIMO with other chipset vendors," said Dr. Sam Heidari, CEO of Quantenna. "The QSR1000 chipset solutions have been broadly deployed by Tier One service providers, retail OEMs and outdoor OEMs worldwide. We are excited to be selected as a partner by the Wi-Fi Alliance."
"We congratulate Quantenna on being part of the Wi-Fi CERTIFIED ac test bed with their QSR1000 4x4 802.11ac Wave 2 Chipset Family," said Kevin Robinson, vice president of marketing at the Wi-Fi Alliance. "With interoperability certification now available, we expect broad industry adoption of new Wi-Fi CERTIFIED ac wave 2 features like MU-MIMO, to deliver higher performance, greater network capacity, and multi-gigabit speeds in Wi-Fi networks."
