At the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2014, Quantenna Communications and Texas Instruments (TI) announced their association on solutions for enterprise and pico small cell base stations.
These platforms will integrate Quantenna’s QSR1000 802.11ac 4×4 Multi-User Multiple Input Multiple Output (MU-MIMO) chipset and TI’s KeyStoneTM-based TCI6630K2L System-on-Chip (SoC) for enterprise and pico small cells.
When combined these solutions create the highest performance 3G/4G cellular with Wave 2 802.11ac and 802.11n Wi-Fi solution for the small cell market, said Quantenna at the MWC 2014.
With Quantenna’s 4×4 802.11ac Wave 2 technology, TI and Quantenna have enabled the industry’s most optimized BOM and highest performance Wi-Fi and LTE solution.
Quantenna’s Wi-Fi architecture capable of 1.7Gbps delivers the performance needed for indoor and outdoor small cells with 802.11ac and 802.11n dual concurrent solutions, while utilizing the TCI6630K2L’s integrated network co-processor and completely offloading the ARM Cortex -A15 CPU cores.
TI’s technology paired with Quantenna’s 802.11ac solution allows OEMs to deliver differentiated enterprise and pico small cells to the market faster.
