Qualcomm Launches Tri-Radio 802.11ac Chipsets

Qualcomm launched a new family of tri-radio 802.11ac chipsets for home Wi-Fi routers and repeaters with advanced Wi-Fi capabilities such as Multi-User MIMO (MU-MIMO) and Qualcomm Wi-Fi SON (Self-Organizing Networks) technology.


The three new radio solutions combine two 5 GHz radios and a 2.4GHz radio to provide greater flexibility in the way that routers or repeaters use wireless spectrum and capacity. The rollout includes two new tri-radio platforms – both of which use its latest 802.11ac System-on-Chip (SoC), the IPQ40x9, which integrates the Qualcomm Internet Processor with 2-stream 802.11ac and Gigabit Ethernet. The platforms can be combined with the company's new 2-stream 802.11ac radio, the QCA9886, to enable a new class of mainstream routers offering an unprecedented 2.2 Gbps of aggregate capacity, or its popular 4-stream 802.11ac radio, the QCA9984, to boost the capabilities of the premium routers and repeaters to up to 3.1 Gbps.

“As people rely on their home network to support more devices accessing the internet and streaming media, Wi-Fi is being stretched to the limit,” said Gopi Sirineni, vice president of product management, Qualcomm Atheros, Inc. “We are changing the game with features designed to deliver the best possible Wi-Fi experiences and now, uniquely, we are driving those technologies into more cost-effective products to extend the benefits to a wider swath of consumers.”
