Set it and forget it simplicity.
Qualcomm - inventing the network that just works
25 mai 2017
Every home is unique, and so are the needs of those using home networks. Some want to keep it simple, while others insist on maximum performance, and everyone wants the utmost in security. A new type of Wi-Fi gear is hitting the market to change the way that people network their homes. Instead of using one router, these new distributed Wi-Fi systems use multiple router-like devices to blanket the entire home with simple, reliable and secure connectivity.
Set it and forget it simplicity.
Wi-Fi, BLE, 15.4-based connectivity.
Support for voice assistance capabilities.
Qualcomm Wi-Fi SON simplifies Wi-Fi set-up and continually optimizes network traffic to eliminate dead spots. The result is strong, reliable and secure connections for all devices – without user intervention.
Qualcomm Technologies offer a range of 11ac, 11ad, and 11ax Wi-Fi, Powerline, and Ethernet solutions to create dedicated connections between routers in a mesh system, to reduce bottlenecks and maintain the fastest possible Wi-Fi in every corner of the home.
With more and more connected devices coming into the household, Wi-Fi networks are becoming overloaded. Qualcomm 11ac solutions with MU-MIMO serves multiple Wi-Fi devices simultaneously, instead of one at a time – for 2-3x faster connections in crowded networks.
Mesh networks have never been easier to launch, with the Qualcomm Mesh Network Platform now available to network manufacturers, broadband carriers, and anyone else looking to redefine home networking.
Buying a router - what consumers are looking for

The demand on Wi-Fi networks has changed. But Wi-Fi technology has been sometimes slow to respond.
Indeed, the proliferation of connected devices combined with exploding demand for video streaming is straining Wi-Fi deployments across the globe — most glaringly on congested networks during peak usage times.
FeibusTech believes that the just-announced 802.11ax Wi-Fi chipsets from Qualcomm Technologies are set to change all that. The wireless pioneer unveiled a new approach to the evolution of Wi-Fi with a pair of chipsets that support 802.11ax. The emerging industry standard borrows cellular-industry advances to help Wi-Fi serve much more data to many more devices. The two chipsets — the IPQ8074 for routers and the QCA6290 for laptops, smartphones, tablets, and other client devices — together make up the first comprehensive offering announced for the developing Wi-Fi standard.
Now, finally, the focus of Wi-Fi development is shifting from optimizing bandwidth — connection speeds to an individual device — to maximizing capacity. That is, ensuring that all devices on crowded networks get the bandwidth they need. The market needs to understand that capacity, not peak speed, is the most important measure for Wi-Fi networks, and that is why we think 802.11ax is a game changer.
