SAN DIEGO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Airgain, Inc. (NASDAQ: AIRG), a leading provider of advanced antenna technologies, enabling high performance wireless networking across a broad range of devices and markets, including connected home, enterprise, automotive, and Internet of Things (IoT), today announced the development of a Wi-Fi 6 reference design with Quantenna Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ: QTNA), incorporating Airgain’s Wi-Fi 6 antenna solution and Quantenna’s high-performance Wi-Fi 6 chipset, the QSR10GU-AX PLUS.
“With the increases in RF system complexity that are needed to get the most performance out of Wi-Fi 6, system designers face much longer design cycles unless they can tap into existing RF integration expertise,” said Jacob Suen, senior vice president at Airgain. “This reference design puts Quantenna’s market-leading chipset, and Airgain’s Wi-Fi 6 antenna technology together with our combined know-how of how to get the best real-world performance out of the technology. It should be a win-win for early adopters who can leverage the reference design to get to market faster and with better system performance.”
The Quantenna-based reference design leverages Quantenna’s QSR10GU-AX PLUS chipset with adaptive MIMO capability, a unique feature that enables dynamic switching between 8×8 MIMO and dual 4×4 MIMO in the 5GHz band. This feature provides end users with the best possible MIMO configuration, tailored to each individual environment. The QSR10GU-AX PLUS also supports advanced MU-MIMO and SuperTx capabilities, providing significant performance gains with both legacy and new Wi-Fi 6 clients.
“With the explosion in the number of new Wi-Fi devices, and demanding applications such as online gaming and 4K video streaming, there is an increasing demand for higher bandwidth and superior network performance, both addressed by our advanced Wi-Fi 6 products,” said Shrinath Keskar, vice president, north America sales at Quantenna. “We have worked with the Airgain team on multiple reference designs and OTA performance for a long time. Their expertise in those areas, combined with their early adopter experience in Wi-Fi 6 antenna integration, made them the preferred choice for collaboration on this new design.”
Airgain’s latest innovations, including new Wi-Fi 6 connectivity solutions, will be on display during the 2019 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES), held January 8th through 11th in Las Vegas, NV.
