The first chip that supports the futuristic 802.11ax standard is available for equipment deployment Network Of various kinds
Wi-Fi, the same wireless access to the Internet based on Router 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 תקשורת Cost-effective and affordable to hundreds of millions of new computing products,802.11ax, 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 chip 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,LTE Which will enable different consumers to serve on the same channel, support spectrum storage up to 160 MHz to increase speed and more.
The vision is that the "802.11ax 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.
The new chip is a variation of chip 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.
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 Broadcom, 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.
We're definitely in favor of extra speed and extra capacity to serve a greater number of devices, and you?
