Qualcomm Gives 802.11ac A Boost













TAIPEI, Taiwan, June 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- COMPUTEX -- Qualcomm Incorporated (NASDAQ: QCOM) today announced that its subsidiary, Qualcomm Atheros, Inc., is giving 802.11ac a boost with its family of Qualcomm ® VIVE 802.11ac (11ac) Wi-Fi solutions. Qualcomm Atheros has gained strong traction in original equipment manufacturer (OEM) devices across both mobile and networking segments, and is offering significant 11ac performance advantages compared to competitive solutions in both rate-over-range and power consumption. In addition, Qualcomm Atheros is taking 802.11ac home routers to a new level with its Qualcomm ® StreamBoost technology, which intelligently identifies, classifies and manages the growing number of multimedia applications streaming into the home—dynamically giving each the bandwidth and speed required to ensure an optimal user experience.

Qualcomm Atheros is enabling the infusion of an array of end-products across multiple segments with its portfolio of VIVE 11ac solutions for mobile, computing, consumer electronics, and home and enterprise networking. Consumers can increasingly realize the performance benefits of 11ac given the growing number of smartphones based on VIVE 11ac mobile solutions—including devices from Samsung, Pantech, ZTE, as well as over 100 other mobile handsets and computing designs that are expected to arrive in the coming months. Qualcomm Atheros is also enabling an increasing number of Gigabit-class Wi-Fi networks with more than 35 enterprise access points and carrier gateways, and 20 retail routers either in development or available today.

Qualcomm Atheros' 1-stream 802.11ac solution is now providing mobile platforms with over 300 Mbps UDP and TCP throughput, well over 3x the performance of previous 11n solutions. This extraordinary performance enables much faster content downloads and transfers, while extending mobile battery life. This significant capacity boost with Qualcomm Atheros' mobile Wi-Fi will help network operators offload mobile traffic, easing the growing data demands on networks.
