What sets MU-MIMO apart? Here are 7 reasons Qualcomm® MU | EFX will make your life Wonder-full.

It’s more than uninterrupted video streaming or lag-free gaming. It’s a whole new level of Wi-Fi® performance. Can you imagine if you bought next year’s car and it was three times faster? 802.11ac MU-MIMO is that level of game-changing. We call it Qualcomm MU | EFX because it lets you experience the maximum effects of 11ac.

When we say multi-user, we mean it. Traditional Wi-Fi works in a “round robin” style, serving one device at a time. As more devices get connected, the one in your hand has to wait longer. Qualcomm MU | EFX is the first technology to change that.

By serving multiple devices at a time, it’s like opening up a carpool lane on your network. Your friends and family will reap the benefits too, whether their device has Qualcomm MU | EFX or not.

MU | EFX is the future of wireless. Can you believe Wi-Fi is now 15 years old? That’s right, if it were a person it would have been afraid of Y2K, watched millionaire game shows, and tried to “catch them all.” A long way from the original 11 Mbps data rate of that era, today’s Wi-Fi networks can deliver over 1 Gbps. And we’re about to blow that out of the water.

Remember when you were the first person to have a flat screen in your home? Or the first person on your street with an electric car? What a sweet feeling. Now imagine having the fastest Wi-Fi in the neighborhood.

Go ahead, host that movie night on your new 4k TV—and rest easy knowing that super-fast Qualcomm MU | EFX will make that stream smooth sailing.

Tripling Wi-Fi speeds is a game changer, and plenty of prominent media powerhouses are taking note. Being the first to deliver MU-MIMO innovations earns a lot of attention.

You probably have more connected devices than fingers. That number is set to explode, as the Internet of Everything connects more things than ever: thermostats, door locks and security cameras, lights, you name it.

Rather than divvy up your airwaves the old fashioned way, you’ll need a Wi-Fi network that can keep up.

As the first company to deliver an end-to-end MU-MIMO ecosystem, we’re giving you Wi-Fi’s ultimate effect—that’s why we’re calling it Qualcomm MU | EFX. We’re ready to multiply performance for everyone on overcrowded networks.
