Broadcom Corp. has introduced what it touts as the industry's fastest and most accurate spectrum management technology for enterprise 5G Wi-Fi access points. According to the company, AIR-IQ enables OEMs to design enterprise access points, particularly for high-density environments, with advanced WLAN air management capabilities to guarantee a reliable Wi-Fi experience.

As Wi-Fi becomes the primary connectivity source in businesses, there is a growing demand for uptime and service level agreement guarantees for a range of enterprise demanding applications across every major industry. Broadcom's AIR-IQ technology combines the best of silicon and software to provide carriers with the ability to detect and mitigate interference to deliver an exceptional and reliable connectivity experience, stated the company.

AIR-IQ is built on Broadcom's Advanced Spectrum Capture Engine (AsCE), that allows the chip to identify non-Wi-Fi interference and adjust accordingly, delivering improved reliability and quality. AIR-IQ features interactive dashboards for measuring and reporting channel utilisation, detection and classification of RF interference as well as spectral maps for forensic capabilities. In addition, record and play-back capabilities allow IT managers to monitor spectrum behaviour 24x7 and allow easy troubleshooting and problem solving to reduce overall downtime. The solution also includes location capabilities for identifying and narrowing problem sources.

AIR-IQ supports up to 16 classifiers for a range of 802.11ac family of products including analogue cordless phones, wireless video cameras, microwave ovens, s-band motion detectors, Bluetooth, gaming controls, baby monitors and others. Additional devices will be released with upcoming software releases.

Broadcom's AIR-IQ technology is sampling and is available on Broadcom's latest Wave 2 802.11ac devices including the BCM47452, BCM43465 and BCM43525.
