Cavium & Quantenna Deliver New 10G Wave 3 Wi-Fi Solutions

Semiconductor maker Cavium, Inc.CAVM expanded its partnership with Quantenna Communication to take Wi-Fi performance to a new level, by delivering the newest high-performance 10G Wave 3 Wi-Fi solutions.

In today's times, Wi-Fi is an all-pervasive utility at home, work and public places. The proliferation of social media, online video and home entertainment is driving a huge need for bandwidth-demanding applications with increasing real-time video sharing and 4K video streaming. Thus, there is a significant demand for high capacity, flexible and scalable Wi-Fi to address these needs.

The new Quantenna True 8x8 QSR10G Wi-Fi platform, paired with Cavium's OCTEON III CN71XX low-power, high-performance quad-core processors will cater to the needs of next generation Wi-Fi access points, routers and gateways, and will tackle reliability, capacity, thermal and security challenges as well.

The Quantenna 10G Wave 3 Wi-Fi platform has up to 12 streams and MU-MIMO support and can thus support more clients and greater capacity. The 10G-capable CN7130 processor optimizes the Quantenna 10G Wave 3 Wi-Fi by delivering the capability to process and safely transport data for hundreds of users, while also offering QoS and deep packet inspection ("DPI") in a low cost, low power envelope.

Cavium and Quantenna have been partners in the joint Wave2 11ac platform, and they continue working closely on turn-key reference designs to enable fast adoption of the new technology. Their collaboration has created an outstanding solution that delivers range, speed, scalability and security to service provider hotspot and home Wi-Fi markets.
