Quantenna Shows Dual-band 4x4 MIMO Wi-Fi

Quantenna Communications is showcasing its first dual-band (2.4 GHz and 5 GHz) 4x4 MIMO (four streams) silicon at this week’s International Consumer Electronics Show (CES).

Quantenna said its 4x4 MIMO Wi-Fi now delivers unmatched reliability and performance over Wi-Fi in both 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands. The 4x4 MIMO chipset is capable of distributing multiple high-definition (HD) video streams to multiple TVs and displays anywhere in the home at full, 1080p resolution.

“Service providers’ Holy Grail of coverage, performance and quality for legacy devices is finally realized by Quantenna’s offering a dual-band, 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz Wi-Fi solution,” said Dr. Sam Heidari chief executive officer for Quantenna.

In addition, Quantenna Communications and STMicroelectronics introduced a Wi-Fi set-top box reference design platform for multi-room DVR (Digital Video Recorder) services.
