Quantenna Enables 10G Wave 3 Wi-Fi Access Points

Quantenna Communications announced the availability of the first 10G Wave 3 Wi-Fi product family for home wireless access points and residential gateways with unprecedented Wi-Fi performance, reliability and capacity for high-density environments.

Quantenna’s True 8x8 QSR10G Wi-Fi platform with multi-user MIMO (MU-MIMO) technology is the first to implement 10G Wave 3 to support speeds up to 10Gbps. This milestone speed benchmark for Wi-Fi is attained by combining the industry’s first True 8x8 MIMO configuration for 5GHz networks with a 4x4 MIMO configuration on 2.4GHz networks for a combined 12-stream configuration.

“In Wi-Fi access points more antennas are always better, but 10G Wave 3 is not just about 8x8 MU-MIMO and faster speeds. It’s about making better use of network and airtime efficiency to support the growing number of connected devices, services and applications,” said Dr. Sam Heidari, Quantenna CEO. “After pioneering the Wi-Fi industry with 4x4 MIMO, we’ve gained a deep understanding of real-world channel behavior in crowded environments. These insights have led to the creation of 10G Wave 3 and the world’s first 8x8 MIMO, which are poised to revolutionize the Wi-Fi experience.”

Key Wave 3 Features and Benefits

  • Integrated AP chipset for dual-band (5GHz and 2.4GHz), dual concurrent operation and management
  • 160MHz channel support for 5GHz networks. When combined with 8x8 MIMO configuration, this offers 4x the capacity of 80MHz 4x4 MIMO networks
  • Unique adaptive MIMO configuration
  • Up to 1024 QAM modulation for 2.4GHz and 5GHz transmissions
  • Supports rich set of interfaces to external hosts such as PCIe Gen3/Gen2, RXAUI, RGMII, and others

Quantenna Announces 802.11ac 10G Wave 3

Quantenna Communications introduced the first 10G Wave 3 Wi-Fi products supporting up to 12 streams for rates up to 10 Gbps. The products are built on Quantenna’s True 8x8 QSR10G Wi-Fi platform with multi-user MIMO (MU-MIMO) technology for home wireless access points and residential gateways.

Quantenna said its 10G Wave 3 platform delivers the maximum capacity within the minimum spectrum so that more streams can be simultaneously transmitted with improved range and reliability. Even single-user MIMO (SU-MIMO), 1x1 and 2x2 client performance is vastly improved, ensuring that the millions of currently shipping mainstream smart phones, tablets and notebook PCs will also benefit from an improved Wi-Fi experience. The QSR10G Wave 3 product family also supports a unique adaptive MIMO architecture. This enables 10G Wave 3 access points to maximize overall network performance, delivering the best possible capacity across all client devices.

“In Wi-Fi access points more antennas are always better, but 10G Wave 3 is not just about 8x8 MU-MIMO and faster speeds. It’s about making better use of network and airtime efficiency to support the growing number of connected devices, services and applications,” said Dr. Sam Heidari, Quantenna CEO. “After pioneering the Wi-Fi industry with 4x4 MIMO, we’ve gained a deep understanding of real-world channel behavior in crowded environments.

Intel to Acquire Lantiq for Home Gateway Silicon

Intel has agreed to acquire Lantiq, a supplier of broadband access and home networking technologies, for an undisclosed sum.

Lantiq, which is based in Munich, Germany, offers a portfolio of silicon devices including xDSL solutions with vectoring and G.Fast; fiber-based technologies such as Fiber to the Distribution Point (FTTdp) and GPON; gateway home networking and DSLTE systems; ultra-efficient network processors; and comprehensive Ethernet and voice solutions. The company holds over 2,000 patents.

Intel said the acquisition will expand its presence in the cable residential gateway market and broaden its offering to other gateway markets, including DSL, Fiber, LTE, retail and IoT smart routers.

"By 2018, we expect more than 800 million broadband connected households worldwide," said Kirk Skaugen, senior vice president and general manager of Intel’s Client Computing Group. "Intel has been a global leader in driving broadband into the home and to connected compute devices. The combination of our cable gateway business with Lantiq's technology and talent can allow global service providers to introduce new home computing experiences and enable consumers to take advantage of a more smart and connected home."

"Intel and Lantiq share a common vision about the evolution of the connected home and the intelligent network," said Dan Artusi, Lantiq CEO. "Together we can drive the transformation of the broadband customer premises equipment (CPE) as it becomes a smart gateway that connects an increasingly diverse roster of devices and services in the home."

Lantiq and Intel Show LTE Cat6 Gateway Platform

Lantiq and Intel announced a joint reference platform for fixed LTE Broadband Router designs.

The co-developed reference platform combines the Intel XMM 7260 LTE communications platform with Lantiq’s GRX330 Communications Processor.

Key features:

  • An Intel designed M.2 module based on the Intel XMM 7260 platform delivers LTE-Advanced features  including flexible carrier aggregation - up to 40Mhz with support for up to 23 CA combinations in one SKU – and category 6 speeds (300 Mbps theoretical peak downlink speeds).
  • The 7260 supports more than 30 3GPP bands (21 bands simultaneous in a single SKU) and global network standards (LTE FDD/TDD, WCDMA/HSPA+, TD-SCDMA/TD-HSPA/EDGE).
  • The Lantiq GRX330 communications processor offers a full Gigabit Ethernet router design, using  a dedicated acceleration engine to maximize Wi-Fi throughput, while keeping the CPU available for other networking and application tasks.

The Stoke SSX-3000 is a gateway that enables mobile operators to deploy an efficient, stand-alone security perimeter fronting their mobile Core networks. With Small-Cell deployments raising concerns about security, Stoke SSX-3000 assures confidentiality and integrity of data plane and control plane over an all-IP network, supporting communications without adding any appreciable latency or service-impacting packet processing burden on core network elements.

"Softbank is a fast moving and innovative competitor in Japan's mobile services marketplace and we are pleased to add them to our growing list of top tier carrier customers," said Vikash Varma, CEO of Stoke. "We are privileged to be a supplier to Softbank through Macnica, and look forward to a successful and expanding relationship in Japan, and other key markets like the United States of America."

The Softbank project builds on recent Stoke wins in Western Europe and marks Stoke's fourth project in Japan, in two of the nation's major mobile operators.

Separately, Stoke announced an agreement for Macnica Networks to bring the Stoke Security eXchange LTE security gateway and Evolved Packet Core (EPC) Protection solutions to mobile network operators in Japan. Initial results from the collaboration, which began earlier this year, include a Security Gateway project win and a new EPC Protection solution trial.

Macnica Networks, a member of the Macnica Group, offers complete system integration services supporting Stoke LTE security solutions. Macnica Networks Corp. has over 20 years of experience in product localization, sales and substantial technical support of computer network equipment. Macnica Networks offers a full line of leading-edge network appliances, software, telecommunications and storage solutions to its customers, and consistently brings innovative new products to their portfolio.

NEC Introduces LTE Small Cell Gateway

NEC announced a compact, all-in-one LTE small cell gateway that accommodates approximately 1,000 LTE small cell access points in a single unit.

The new, ATCA-based gateway supports LTE small cell services by concentrating security, maintenance, user data processing and traffic control functions on one blade. Additionally, as subscribers increase, the gateway's capacity can easily be extended by increasing the number of blades.

The gateway can also be connected to existing 3G small cell gateway equipment.

"In recent years, telecommunications carriers have been introducing LTE, optimizing wireless capacity and promoting greater capacity in response to the rapid increase in communications from smartphones, tablets and other devices," said Katsumi Tanoue, Assistant General Manager, Mobile Radio Access Network Division, NEC Corporation. "NEC's new gateway is ideally suited for satisfying this increasing market demand."

In addition to this gateway, NEC is also promoting the development and commercialization of an LTE small cell gateway that supports more than 10,000 LTE small cell access points.
