Broadcom Announces Availability of Industry’s First Complete Ecosystem of 802.11ax Solutions
Max WiFi is the sixth generation of Wi-Fi and the most powerful standard yet, with innovations that go beyond speed. Max WiFi supports delivery of simultaneous video, voice, data and IOT services to an ever-increasing number of wireless devices. This means that steady, high-speed Wi-Fi with unprecedented quality of service is available wherever consumers want it: homes, offices and high-traffic public venues such as stadiums. Max WiFi’s unique architecture is also optimized for internet upload, making social media live-streaming and cloud storage seamless.
The demand for high performance Wi-Fi in the home is growing unabated with a typical family of four expected to have an average of 50 connected devices by 2022. At the same time, the amount of media content exchanged among mobile devices through the cloud has increased exponentially. According to
Max WiFi implements:
- Uplink and Downlink Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple Access (OFDMA) technology, which is the fundamental building block of 802.11ax. OFDMA significantly increases efficiency and capacity of the wireless network as several devices. communicate concurrently in portions of the frequency spectrum allocated proportional to their needs. In addition, it enables fine grain quality of service for complex quadruple play applications via the implementation of sophisticated downlink and uplink scheduling.
- Multi-User MIMO (MU-MIMO) technology to increase channel capacity when servicing multiple simultaneous devices.
- Target Wake Time (TWT) to orchestrate specific times when clients wake and sleep enabling mobile devices to reduce power consumption and increase battery life.
- Spatial Reuse, which allows access points to more efficiently share channel capacity by making intelligent decisions on when to transmit data.
- Support for 4-streams of 802.11ax
- 4.8 Gbps PHY Rate
- 160 MHz Channel Bandwidth
- 1024 QAM Modulation
- Uplink & Downlink OFDMA
- ZeroWait DFS
- AirIQ Interference Identification
- Full compliance to IEEE and WFA 802.11ax specifications
The BCM4375 is a smartphone combo chip. Key Features include:
- Support for 2-streams of 802.11ax
- Bluetooth 5.0+ including Low-Energy Long Range (LELR)
- Real Simultaneous Dual-Band (RSDB)
- 1.429 Gbps PHY Rate
- 1024 QAM Modulation
802.11ax has generated broad support across the consumer-electronics industry. Companies and partners across the ecosystem appreciate the importance of 802.11ax and are committed to its development, integration, and distribution.
“Our reliance on Wi-Fi has increased tremendously as we stream live experiences over social media and upload pictures and files to the cloud while also connecting the many ‘things’ around our home. Max WiFi, based on 802.11ax, is designed from the bottom up to address these evolving consumer needs. With the launch of the Max WiFi ecosystem,
“The 802.11ax Wi-Fi protocol is significant for users as it functions in the critical 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands and adds OFDMA while retaining backward compatibility with legacy protocols. The Wi-Fi device and traffic explosion, higher density Wi-Fi deployments, growing use of outdoor Wi-Fi, and the need to support a great variety of different device types will require more efficient Wi-Fi implementations that can help to deliver richer experiences for enterprise and consumer applications that are hungry for bandwidth.”
“Providing best in class in home Wi-Fi is an essential part of
“Advancement in the WLAN standards are critical to keep pace with the reliable delivery of quadruple play services to an increasing number of wireless connected devices in the home. The 6th generation WLAN standard, 802.11ax, adopts many of the established technologies from cellular standard such as LTE enabling true “carrier grade” Wi-Fi. This will allow service providers to provide their subscribers a best in class wireless experience that matches the WAN speeds provided by state of the art xDSL, DOCSIS and PON technologies. ARRIS is partnering with
“Today people expect to be connected to work, family, and friends anywhere, anytime, and anyplace and a majority of that connected time is over Wi-Fi. 802.11ax is the most efficient Wi-Fi standard developed to date that can deliver the performance, scalability, and capacity that elevates Wi-Fi to utility-grade in today’s challenging enterprise environments.”
Tenlong Deng, GM of Networking & Wireless Devices BU,
"ASUS, the leader in high performance Wi-Fi routers, is excited to once again work closely with
“D-LINK is working aggressively with
“Enterprise networks are growing increasingly dense, making 802.11ax a much-needed technology for next-generation access points. 802.11ax will greatly enhance capacity and coverage so users will be able to stream video, download content quickly, and not be hindered at times of high-traffic use.”
“Emerging applications in video conferencing, holographic imaging, and augmented reality require the highest quality experiences and demand the highest performing wireless networks. These are networks that have low latency, high reliability and very high throughput. This generation of Wi-Fi based on IEEE 802.11ax will meet the demands of these fast growing markets and drive adoption by consumers and business workers.”
"As the worldwide leader in home networking solutions,
"The performance requirements for home Wi-Fi networks continue to increase as the number of mobile, video, and IoT devices in the home grow.
"As consumer use of high-bandwidth applications increases, best-in-class Wi-Fi routers will need to utilize 802.11ax technology to support increases in throughput to more and more devices. TP-Link is building a portfolio of products utilizing
