802.11ax Wi-Fi Solution

Quantenna Communications recently introduced the QSR10G-AX Access Point, which supports the latest 802.11ax Draft 1.0 specification. Based on Quantenna’s QSR10G Wave 3 Wi-Fi platform, the QSR10G-AX supports 12 streams—eight streams in the 5-GHz band and four streams in the 2.4-GHz band. In addition, it supports both downlink and uplink Orthogonal Frequency-Division Multiple Access (OFDMA).

The QSR10G-AX’s features, benefits, and specs include:

  • Integrated AP chipset for dual-band (5 and 2.4 GHz), dual-concurrent operation and management
  • Pin-to-Pin compatibility with QSR10G
  • 12-Stream operation
  • Compliant with 802.11ax Draft 1.0
  • Supports interfaces to external hosts (e.g., PCIe Gen3/Gen2, RXAUI, and RGMII)
  • Supports 2.4-GHz coexistence interface
  • Enables full offload for external host
  • Cloud managed

The QSR10G-AX samples should be available in early 2017.
