Quantenna Communications, a provider of Wi-Fi networking
for home entertainment, announced that SMARTROVE has selected Quantenna’s
802.11n MIMO chipset for use in carrier-grade 3G/4G offload applications to
transport critical police video surveillance traffic in Hamilton City, Bermuda.
This is the first use of 802.11n wireless to carry
Session Initiation Protocol (SIP)–enabled telephony across the island of
Bermuda applying enterprise grade 802.1X security.
Quantenna’s QHS710 chipset enables SMARTROVE’s SR1410
wireless LAN solution to deliver multiple HD video streams over long haul mesh
networks at low packet error rates (PER).
The company claims
that it is the industry’s only commercially available, carrier-grade 4×4 MIMO
802.11n solution capable of offering the superior throughput, coverage and
quality necessary to support outdoor applications that require seamless
offloading of high quality video from 3G to Wi-Fi over very long distances.
After months of intensive testing and evaluation,
Quantenna’s chipset has proven to deliver wire-like performance in very
challenging radio environments. By combining SMARTROVE’s Layer 3 technologies
with the Quantenna chipset, SMARTROVE and GET Security are able to deliver
cutting-edge cloud computing and management solutions with enterprise grade
security,” said Venkat Kalkunte, president and CEO of SMARTROVE.
Quantenna’s Full-11n chipsets deliver up to 600 Mbps of
bandwidth, enabling four simultaneous video streams throughout a building or
home with carrier-grade reliability. The chipsets enable SMARTROVE’s SR1410
wireless mesh solution to deliver multiple concurrent video streams at
1080p-120, 1080p-60 and 1080i resolution to multiple destinations
We have worked closely with SMARTROVE to develop one of
the world’s most robust solutions for challenging Wi-Fi hotspot and carrier
backhaul applications,” said Sam Heidari, chief executive officer for
The SMARTROVE wireless network allows multiple
applications to maintain service level agreements (SLAs). Unlike
conventional WLANs which allow applications to work in best effort class of
service, what we currently have deployed is a unique combination of phased
array antenna technology working in concert with a multi-spatial stream MIMO
traffic controller,” said Kevin Smith, president of GET Security.
Quantenna’s Full-11n 4×4 MIMO Wi-Fi family will be displayed
during the 2012 International CES, January 10-13, 2012, in the company’s suite
in the North Tower at the Las Vegas Hilton.
