This is the next coming generation of wireless connectivity device and as is the case with every generational jump, it is a quick solution than the one it will eventually replace. In this case, 802.11ax can give up to 1.8Gbps to the client through Dual Band Simultaneous (DBS) combining 2.4GHz and 5GHz, all while utilising two-thirds less power than 802.11ac. That is a 4x rise in theoretical throughput.
Qualcomm’s Technology, Inc., a subdivision of Qualcomm Incorporated (NASDAQ: QCOM), today reported an end-to-end 802.11ax portfolio, which contain the IPQ8074 system-on-chip (SoC) for the QCA6290 solution for client devices and network infrastructure, making Qualcomm Technologies the first company reported commercial solutions to support 802.11ax. As Wi-Fi networks has more traffic on it, dense and diverse, Qualcomm Technologies’ 802.11ax solutions of the problems are designed to improve same connected experiences, giving up to 4x greater capacity to make Wi-Fi traffic more effective and efficient, output reported up to 4x quick user input and long battery life for Wi-Fi devices. Qualcomm’s Technology is about to sample the IPQ8074 and QCA6290 in the first quarter of 2017.
“We are curious about the possible impact that 802.11ax will have in the home and small scale businesses,”David Henry said, senior vice president, home networking, NETGEAR. “802.11ax is not an gradual upgrade to keep updated with today’s demands in the market. The technology will arrange the tools for what matters most in networking, and will take the foundation of network capacity for years to come.
PC users want to confirm their network technology delivers the lowest latency, the most “input, and the lowest packet loss” Michael Cubbage said, chief executive officer, Rivet Networks. “802.11ax is balance to convey game-changing performance on all three of these. It will greatly implement the PC user experiences for gaming, downloading and video streaming. We are looking for working with Qualcomm’s Technology to bring this exciting new technology to market and to the home for their ease of networking because current world is all about working through internet the business and even personal relationships manage through internet so that would surely reduce the internet traffic.”
