CSR’s Latest For The Connected Car – Dual, Concurrent, In-Vehicle Wi-Fi® Networks Capability

CSR plc (LSE: CSR; NASDAQ: CSRE) today announced availability of the CSR6030A11™, its most powerful and feature-rich automotive-qualified standalone Wi-Fi solution. CSR introduced the CSR6000™ family of automotive-grade platforms in April 2011 and, in close collaboration with automotive manufacturers, has since continued updating the company’s Wi-Fi solution to meet and exceed customer expectations. Representing a significant R&D investment, CSR’s new automotive Wi-Fi solution offers a number of significant advancements. In addition to improvements to the Wi-Fi performance, the CSR6030A11 offers “Concurrent Network Mode” – the capability to support Wi-Fi connectivity on two networks at the same time. In addition, CSR6030A11 is Wi-Fi Direct™ compliant, meaning that the CSR6030A11 can connect directly to other Wi-Fi CERTIFIED™ Wi-Fi Direct™ devices without relying on a hotspot for that connection. These capabilities give system designers greatly increased flexibility in supporting a much greater range of network topologies and use cases within the rapidly-changing, in-car consumer communications and entertainment environment.

“We’ve been engaging with our automotive customers on this platform since 2009, and the introduction of the CSR6030A11 – our third-generation automotive Wi-Fi solution – shows our commitment to make the investments necessary to help them meet their customer requirements,” said Thomas Carmody, Head of Connectivity Marketing for CSRs Auto Business Group. “Automakers have been developing Wi-Fi strategies that will enhance consumer experience in the connected-car environment. The CSR6030A11 will meet the challenges of the demands that grow out of those Wi-Fi requirements and demonstrate our growing strength in supplying Wi-Fi to the automotive market.”

Concurrent Mode

Put simply, the CSR6030A11 is capable of providing Wi-Fi connectivity on two different Wi-Fi networks simultaneously, meaning that the same device is capable of acting as a Wi-Fi client on one network while serving as a Wi-Fi access point on another at the same time. The feature is set to improve the flexibility of wireless connections to and from in-vehicle systems: for example, with this feature, you can envisage smartphone tethering for Internet access to the head unit while at the same time that head unit can enable an in-vehicle Wi-Fi access point to deliver the smartphone’s Internet connection to a number of consumer electronics (CE) devices brought into the vehicle. Concurrent Network Mode supports legacy Wi-Fi client and access point roles but will also deliver the same functionality with Wi-Fi Direct enabled devices.
