Explore our networking technologies.

See how our unique portfolio of networking technologies can help create the ultimate wireless user experiences.


802.11ax is the next generation of Wi-Fi, delivering up to 4x greater capacity than previous technologies and making better use of that capacity to address the mounting demands of crowded, heterogeneous and dense Wi-Fi networks.


Our 802.11ad solutions bring multi-gigabit speed and low-latency connectivity to networks, smartphones and notebooks to revolutionize broadband and media experiences.

802.11ac with Multi-User MIMO

With more and more connected devices coming into the household, Wi-Fi networks are becoming overloaded. MU-MIMO serves multiple Wi-Fi devices virtually simultaneously, instead of one at a time – for 2-3x faster connections in crowded networks.

Channel Agility

Maximize performance in networks with multiple Wi-Fi devices. This access point feature reduces interference by assigning each device on your network the frequency most appropriate for it, producing a superior Wi-Fi experience for everyone.

Connectivity Engine (CnE)

Our connectivity engine built into Qualcomm Technologies' mobile chipsets assesses the quality, bandwidth, and policies of all available wireless connections before selecting the best link for the app you’re about to use.


CSRmesh™ extends the range of Bluetooth wireless technology by turning Bluetooth-enabled devices into a security-rich network for the IoT.

Qualcomm® IoT Connectivity

The Qualcomm® IoT Connectivity feature suite sits “above” the connectivity hardware and associated frameworks, acting like a universal translator to ensure coexistence and interoperability.

Qualcomm® Streamboost™

There’s a smarter way to manage network traffic. StreamBoost™ is designed to allow each device to get just the right amount of bandwidth for the task at hand—so everyone on your network gets to enjoy fast Wi-Fi.

Qualcomm® Wi-Fi SON

With the number of connected devices in our homes increasing rapidly, new technology is needed to manage the growing traffic. Qualcomm Wi-Fi SON (Self-Organizing Network) automates security, bandwidth optimization and more, enabling complex systems to run smoothly, reliably and with minimal user effort.

Spectral Analysis

Wireless products don’t clutter your desk, but they do clutter the airwaves. VIVE is engineered to use advanced spectral analysis to locate interference and adjust Wi-Fi transmissions accordingly.

Wi-Fi Certified Miracast™

Share your smartphone videos, photos, and web pages on the big screen with ease.

Wi-Fi Certified Passpoint™

Automatically discover nearby Wi-Fi hotspots with your smartphone wherever you go—no new passwords or account numbers required.
