A smarter way to network.
With more people accessing more media content at home, Wi-Fi is facing increased pressure to perform. To alleviate slow connections and interference from so many devices, Qualcomm® VIVE™ 802.11ac technology is bringing more powerful Wi-Fi to home and enterprise networks.

Products enabled with VIVE deliver rich content 3x faster with 2-3x more capacity than previous Wi-Fi products all while reducing your energy costs.
How it works.
More speed, for more devices.
This is going to get a little nerdy, but bear with us. MU-MIMO (pronounced em-you my-moh, and short for multi-user, multi-input and multi-output) is a revolutionary new way for Wi-Fi networks to operate. With traditional Wi-Fi, devices are served one at a time, creating a drop in throughput and capacity. This situation is made worse when multiple devices begin streaming high-resolution video. MU-MIMO solves this problem by transmitting simultaneously to several devices, significantly speeding up transmissions and making the most of your high-speed Wi-Fi network.
Smarter traffic management.
VIVE enabled devices also support Qualcomm® StreamBoost™ technology which intelligently manages your network traffic, giving more bandwidth to applications that are sensitive to delays, like video chat.
