Wi-Fi, the same wireless access to the Internet based on Which has become an integral part of our lives and devices, is about to undergo many changes and upgrades in the near future - with the 802.11ac dual-channel standard becoming the new absolute default for each product, with the acceleration of the 802.11ad acceleration that delivers exceptionally high speeds, with The new HaLow 802.11ah standard will deliver Cost-effective and affordable to hundreds of millions of new computing products,, Which is to become an even more advanced successor for the 802.11ac.

Work on the 802.11ax standard is still underway (and some will say in its infancy), with estimates that it seems to be gaining real momentum only at the end of the decade - but the modest startup from Quantenna Silicon Valley is not waiting, launching now The first to support the standard 1.0 draft, to leapfrog capabilities and performance.

The company's new QSR10G-AX chip offers support for some of the key features of the new device, which is designed to provide not only higher maximum transfer speeds, but more efficient use of the free wireless spectrum and a method that can be used by a larger number of consumers Or devices) effectively: support for advanced QAM1024 encoding with 5 bits of information out of every six bits sent (permit for addressing and error correction), support for 8-channel MIMO channels and eight receiving channels, support for OFDMA technology for wireless middleware access, Which will enable different consumers to serve on the same channel, support spectrum storage up to 160 MHz to increase speed and more.

The new chip will be available to the network's product manufacturers in the coming year

The vision is that the " Will allow speeds of almost 10 gigabits per second (!!) to the consumer in optimum condition, although the Quantenna chip will support theoretical maximum speeds of up to 3.9 gigabits per second for value, at least initially - which is not really surprising given that Currently, there are not even commercial end devices that support the technology.

In the not too distant future we may see a router supporting the 802.11ax standard and supporting the 802.11ad standard, which can provide total transfer speeds of 17 or 18 GB per second!

The new chip is a variation of The QSR10G already offered in the market with support for the 802.11ac standard, which offers full backward support - allowing different router manufacturers to adopt the QSR10G-AX in new models that have already been developed for the previous generation, with minimal financial investment - which is what should make the offer More interesting and worthwhile for them.

Chip that can be easily adapted to existing products - only to wait for additional products to support the standard
That can be adjusted relatively easily to existing products - only the products that support the standard are left to wait

There are not many commercial products in the market that use Quintana's chips, but it is reasonable to assume that the announcement of commercial availability close to 802.11ax-supporting products will also be an opening shot for larger competitors such as , Marvell, Realtek and more to showcase their own competing products that will bring us closer to the day when support for this new technology will be a very important and significant addition.

Interest in the 802.11ax standard is great, and now it may grow even more
Interest in the It's big, and now it might grow even bigger

We're definitely in favor of extra speed and extra capacity to serve a greater number of devices, and you?
