Quantenna Demonstrates World’s First 4×4 Four Stream Dual-band 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz Wi-Fi Chipset Solution at International CES 2013

Las Vegas, January 7, 2013 – International CES — Quantenna Communications, Inc., a leader in ultra-reliable Wi-Fi networking for whole-home entertainment, announced it will demonstrate the world’s first dual-band (2.4 GHz and 5 GHz) 4×4 MIMO (four streams) technology optimized for service providers and retail applications at this week’s International Consumer Electronics Show (CES), January 8-11 in Las Vegas.

Quantenna’s new dual-band, multi-standard-based 4×4 MIMO Wi-Fi technology delivers unmatched reliability and performance over Wi-Fi in both 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands. The Quantenna dual-band solution solves the main issue of service providers today, which is the support for legacy Wi-Fi devices ? while enabling wire-like, superior video distribution over wireless with unrivaled range at more than 200 feet, including through concrete walls and multiple floors superior video quality.  In addition, this will enable deployment of Quantenna based solutions for all applications including the use of Wi-Fi hotspots for cellular offload.

“Service providers’ Holy Grail of coverage, performance and quality for legacy devices is finally realized by Quantenna’s offering a dual-band, 2.4GHz and 5 GHz Wi-Fi solution,” said Dr. Sam Heidari chief executive officer for Quantenna. “Users can now enjoy the same reliability offered previously on the 5 GHz band, now with their 2.4GHz legacy devices. For the first time, enhanced performance of the 2.4 GHz products is achieved based on full Wi-Fi standards.”

In addition, a number of leading service providers and retail manufacturers at CES will be demonstrating devices that deliver superior Wi-Fi video performance using Quantenna’s 4×4 MIMO technology.

Whether it’s streaming HD video anywhere in the home or need for more bandwidth, service providers and retail manufacturers have one thing in common, they are choosing Quantenna’s superior Wi-Fi.
Recently named an International CES Innovations 2013 Design and Engineering Awards winner in the Enabling Technologies category, Quantenna’s chipsets enable the convergence of TV and multimedia to deliver IPTV services with wire-like quality and reliability.

Quantenna’s dual-band 2.4 and 5 GHz chipset fully supports the IEEE 802.11 standard with advanced features including 4×4 Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO), dynamic digital beamforming and wireless channel monitoring and optimizing.  Quantenna’s chipset is the industry’s only commercially available, carrier-grade 4×4 MIMO solution capable of distributing multiple high-definition (HD) video streams to multiple TVs and displays anywhere in the home at full, 1080p resolution.  It is designed to help enable a new generation of converged broadcast and Internet-based entertainment services that require an ultra-reliable, high-performance Wi-Fi connection in any size home.
