Welcome OpenSync™

As a strong supporter of smart Wi-Fi in-home networking solutions, we are excited about the new OpenSync™ initiative. We welcome its efforts in giving the broadband industry the foundation to stimulate the growth of more intelligent Wi-Fi-centric in-home services. Our solutions have and will continue to enable these services. For example, SONiQ, Quantenna’s self-optimizing home network solution, has already been used in various deployments to efficiently manage multiple Wi-Fi connected devices. As service providers continue to be challenged in the...

How MU-MIMO Can Supercharge Wi-Fi

MU-MIMO is going strong and offered in many devices. Although, 100’s of Millions MU-MIMO Clients like Galaxy S8 and S9, Moto Z series, Google Pixel 2 and 3XL are being deployed today, many users are yet to know their devices are offering MU-MIMO capabilities. A Client can be either SU-MIMO or MU-MIMO. Single User (SU) MIMO provides each user 1 time slot with full band but they share channel capacity while, several Multi-User (MU) MIMO users share the same full...

Wi-Fi EasyMesh: a step towards multi-vendor Mesh

Wi-Fi distributed networks based on multiple Wi-Fi mesh nodes have gained traction in the recent years, as they provide a way to increase coverage across large homes, or complex environments. Using real life measurements from over 7,000 different homes, Quantenna has shown that, when the main access point is based on 4x4 MIMO, about 55% of homes need an additional mesh node to deliver fiber speed to the entire home. This percentage drops to 15% when using 8x8 MIMO (please...

Why you really need 10Gbit/s Wi-Fi

We all need Wi-Fi to run our everyday life. Since its first appearance, Wi-Fi has evolved nearly 1000x in its capabilities, going from the initial 802.11b that could deliver at most 11Mbps, to 802.11ax that can go above 10Gbps. But do we really need a Wi-Fi technology delivering 10Gbps? Overkill? Absolutely not. The evolution of Wi-Fi speed has been driven by two factors: Increase in broadband access speeds

Making Wi-Fi Truly an IoT Technology Thanks to 802.11ax

802.11ax is an important step forward for Wi-Fi, bringing many new features and improvements that have been documented quite widely within the industry. We’d like to focus on one of the lesser known benefits of 802.11ax that actually provides significant improvements to 2.4GHz operation, as well as new features improving operation of battery devices. So what does this mean when it comes to picking an IoT technology for smart home applications? Today, many different IoT connectivity technologies are used within...
