Enterprise Wave 2 3x3 11ac Dual-band Radio

Currently Viewing:

Broadcom’s expanded portfolio includes the BCM43525 (3x3 11ac MU-MIMO) for high-performance access points. MU-MIMO combined with 160MHz enables devices to fully utilize available bandwidth to deliver more than 2x the performance.
The BCM43525 is further enhanced by NitroQAMTM, Broadcom’s 1024-QAM modulation scheme, which gives up to a 25 percent throughput boost over 802.11ac’s 256-QAM. In addition, by using a powerful Digital Signal Processing (DSP)-based architecture, Broadcomis the first silicon vendor able to perform advanced spectrum capture, analysis and classification right on the chip without impacting performance. Broadcom’s Advanced Spectrum Capture Engine (AsCE) allows the chip to identity non-Wi-Fi interference and adjust accordingly, delivering improved reliability and quality.
