The number of installations of wireless networks in homes and offices is growing rapidly, and with it becomes more visible problem of uneven cover the entire space from the attenuation of various obstacles. His solution to this issue decided to offer start-up companies from the U. S. Quantenna Communications. For this purpose it is going to release the chips small-signal amplifiers. According to the developers, along with increased chips will deal with interference from extraneous devices, operating in bands 2, 4 or 5 GHz with the use of technology MIMO.
planned withdrawal of three varieties of chipsets Quantenna, at work in the range of 2, 4 GHz, 5 GHz and dvuhdiapazonnyh. It is expected that the price odnodiapazonnyh chips in large quantities at $ 20 and combined - 40 U. S. Availability of such components to create relatively inexpensive amplifiers signals - Enhancers coverage for existing wireless networks. The company announced that it has certain agreements with several providers to use its products, and hopes to get ready devices on the market by mid-2009
It is also possible that chips Quantenna interested in targeting the individual consumer companies such as Dell and Apple, is actively developing a set of services available through wireless networks. Another group of equipment, which use the new chips would look quite logical - it is home video, are increasingly being equipped with a wireless interface.
