AMSTERDAM, THE NETHERLANDS--(Marketwired - September 08, 2016) - IBC2016 -- Quantenna Communications, Inc., a leader in ultra-high performance Wi-Fi, announced today that its QSR1000 802.11ac 4x4 Wi-Fi solutions are integrated into Orange newly announced residential gateway "New LiveBox" and the new 4K Ultra HD wireless set-top box, which were announced earlier this year.
The Quantenna QSR1000 802.11ac 4x4 chipset in the New LiveBox enables superior whole home coverage for all 5GHz Wi-Fi enabled devices like smart phones and laptops while simultaneously enabling live 4K streaming to the new Orange 4K Ultra HD wireless set-top box., which also integrates Quantenna's chipset. With this combination, Orange, the largest broadband service provider in France, takes in-home wireless services to a new level of performance.
"Quantenna is extremely proud to have worked with Orange, Sagemcom and SoftAtHome to deliver these market leading platforms, especially with the introduction of the world's first 4K wireless set-top box with 4x4," said Dr. Sam Heidari, Chairman and CEO at Quantenna Communications. "We are looking forward to a very successful deployment and to having Orange customers experience the full benefits of ultra-high performance Wi-Fi."
"As a telecommunications service provider, Wi-Fi has become a central piece of our technology strategy. We are now delivering services all the way to the devices, and all these devices are now using Wi-Fi to connect to our core network. Having good enough Wi-Fi is not sufficient any more, we need the best Wi-Fi to provide the highest performance," said Aymeric Castelain, new Livebox & Set Top Box Product Director at Orange. "With Quantenna's solution, it is the first time 5GHz Wi-Fi chipset is directly embedded into our 4K wireless set-top box. This gives great flexibility to us and to our customers who do not need to worry anymore about having to cable their set-top box to their gateway."
"Sagemcom is constantly looking to innovate to deliver the best system products to its customers. When Orange specified the next generation of their gateway and set-top box, it was clear to us that another level of Wi-Fi performance would be required," said Patrick Sevian, CEO of Sagemcom. "We are happy to have collaborated with Quantenna to achieve these two outstanding platforms."
"Quality of Experience is at the heart of SoftAtHome strategy. Thanks to its convergent software platform, SOP, SoftAtHome is able to deliver the best experience for operators using all their CPEs. SoftAtHome and Quantenna worked together to successfully integrate Quantenna's Wi-Fi chips interface into SOP, running on Orange new Livebox generation," said Michel Degland, CEO of SoftAtHome. "We are thrilled to take part in the new launch by Orange to make these platforms the heart of digital connected home."
