Welcome OpenSync™

By Quantenna

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 battle to own the home, it is critical that they move to reaffirm their position by embracing technology that not only provides the ability to add new services but enables them to be rolled-out rapidly and at massive scale. The growth of intelligent Wi-Fi-centric in-home services including security, advanced parental controls, secure guest & device access, a broad range of OTT services, and more, undoubtedly takes things a big step further than traditional voice, video and broadband. The new offerings provided by open source or industry initiatives including the OpenSync™ initiative, Wi-Fi EasyMesh™, RDK, OpenWRT, and prpl Foundation provide the opportunity to create the first silicon-to-service framework.

We’ve launched silicon solutions leveraging Plume’s previously proprietary device software with a major cable MSO in the US which has enabled them to introduce services including market leading whole-home adaptive Wi-Fi. We are now actively incorporating the OpenSync™ framework into our silicon platforms deployed by other global operators. Additionally, Quantenna’s Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) product family and its unique 5x5 MIMO architecture with advanced spectrum management are integrated with OpenSync™ for off-the-shelf Adaptive WiFi™ and modern services built on it.

Harmoniously coupled with our market leading Wi-Fi SoC platforms, now the service providers really do have the tools to challenge the disruptive forces at play and the opportunity to serve the ever-evolving needs of the modern consumer.
