Quantenna launched its 10G Wave 3 Wi-Fi product family, which delivers up to 12 streams in high-density environments such as in service provider and retail market segments. The 10G Wave 3 Wi-Fi is based on Quantenna's True 8x8 QSR10G Wi-Fi platform with multi-user MIMO (MU-MIMO) technology.

The 10G Wave 3 supports speeds up to 10Gbit/s by combining 8x8 MIMO configurations for 5GHz networks with a 4x4 MIMO configuration on 2.4GHz networks. It can support more clients, each running more efficiently for applications including real-time video, OTT video, voice, IoT and other services. It also offers single-user MIMO (SU-MIMO), 1x1 and 2x2 client performance, designed for currently shipping mainstream smartphones, tablets and laptops.

According to ABI Research, over 1.5 billion products with 802.11ac will ship worldwide by the end of 2015. "Shipments of devices which support the 802.11ac standard grew significantly in 2014 and 2015," said ABI Research Director Philip Solis. "Rising demand for home access points that can manage and support the dozens of Wi-Fi devices is generating an immense opportunity for leading component suppliers, such as Quantenna, who are early to market with innovative solutions."

The QSR10G Wave 3 product family also supports an adaptive MIMO architecture. This enables 10G Wave 3 access points to maximise network performance, delivering best possible capacity across all client devices. This is important as the mix of legacy and new client devices are changing, as end consumers adopt more devices with 802.11ac.

The new product allows access points to support up to four simultaneous Multi-User MIMO (MU-MIMO) clients per group. With this, more total system capacity and aggregate throughput can be supported. More consumers will experience faster, more reliable video streaming experience, faster downloads and uploads, and better performance at extremely long distances, in high-density Wi-Fi home environments and outdoor applications like Wi-Fi hotspots.

Quantenna's QSR10GU, QSR10GA, QSR10G5 and QSR10PA are now sampling to early access partners.
