Intel® Puma™ 6 MG DOCSIS 3.0 Media Gateway reference designs support Quantenna 4x4 802.11ac Wi-Fi solutions
FREMONT, Calif. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — June 5, 2013 — Quantenna Communications, Inc., a leader in ultra-reliable Wi-Fi networking for whole-home entertainment, announced that its 4x4 802.11ac Wi-Fi solutions are now supported by Intel® Puma™ 6 reference designs. Using the world’s fastest industry standard Wi-Fi and the only Wave 2 MU-MIMO chipsets, Quantenna delivers a fast and reliable wireless streaming of bandwidth-intensive data, such as video content, throughout the home to multiple devices. Products based on Quantenna’s 11ac Wi-Fi solution will also act as an open access point that interoperates with all third party clients, such as laptops, tablets and smartphones.
“Quantenna’s 4x4 802.11ac Wi-Fi technology is rapidly emerging as a primary way to deliver PayTV and broadband services to multi-room deployments. Our 4x4 solutions are successfully deployed with many major service providers worldwide due to the wire-like quality and whole-home coverage they deliver. Our signal reaches farther, transmits faster and stays steadier than any other available solution,” said Dr. Sam Heidari, CEO at Quantenna. “We are delighted to be bringing the same quality to the cable MSOs for their video deployments and multimedia gateways by enabling the Intel Puma 6-based Video Gateway platforms with this technology.”
Quantenna’s industry-standard 4x4 802.11n and 802.11ac Wi-Fi products solve today’s home networking challenges of delivering ultra-reliable, high-speed wireless coverage throughout the whole home. Quantenna is a pioneer in providing Wi-Fi performance architecture to deliver a wired-like user experience over wireless networks in the most demanding environments; regardless if it’s traditional gateway data, over-the-top video, or HD streaming. As a result, service providers can be confident that their customers are receiving reliable, whole-home data and video coverage. This in turn maximizes efficiency for ISPs, as it requires fewer customer service calls and repair truck deployments. Quantenna’s 4x4 solutions work with all third party clients and any consumer devices in any MIMO configuration (e.g. 1x1, 2x2, 3x3 or 4x4), in addition to being Wave 2 ready for added future-proofing.
“The cable industry is adding wireless streaming of video and content throughout the whole home,” said Ran Senderovitz, General Manager, Intel Service Provider Solutions. “Quantenna’s 802.11ac solution integrated with Intel’s Puma 6 MG DOCSIS Video Gateway platform will enable OEMs to differentiate their platforms, and allow cable operators to improve the TV viewing experience on Intel-based devices such as Ultrabook™ computers, All-in-One PCs, smartphones and tablets.”
