Quantenna Demonstrates Technology Leadership in Wi-Fi Home Networking 

 January 07, 2009: 10:46 AM ET

Quantenna Communications, Inc., a developer of silicon for intelligent 
high speed wireless networking, today announced that at CES it will 
demonstrate the world's first fully integrated 802.11n chip with 4x4 MIMO 
and transmit beamforming. 

By combining these technologies, a single chip can deliver up to a 25 dB 
performance improvement over older generation 802.11n 2x2 MIMO 

The solution demonstrates that significant Wi-Fi performance, reliability 
and home coverage improvements can be attained to deliver near error-free 
and real-time high definition television (HDTV) wirelessly throughout any 
size home over standard 802.11n networks. 

Standards-based 802.11n solutions that use 4x4 MIMO and transmit 
beamforming are poised to become the technology of choice for consumer 
electronic manufacturers looking to integrate high reliability and 
unmatched high speed wireless performance 

The combination of these technologies enables real-time HD video 
distribution and next-generation gaming, multimedia and HD entertainment 
throughout the home ..


Cheers all
