Qualcomm Atheros launches Wi-Fi module with Bluetooth connectivity

Telecom Lead America: Qualcomm Atheros, a networking and
connectivity subsidiary of Qualcomm, has launched both the Killer Wireless-N
1202 high-performance Wi-Fi module with Bluetooth connectivity and the Killer
E2200 high-performance gigabit Ethernet controller.


The Killer Wireless-N 1202 high-performance Wi-Fi module
will be available in May. The Killer E2200 high-performance Ethernet controller
is available now.


Qualcomm Atheros said the two products are designed to
offer advanced control by automatically classifying and prioritizing gaming,
video and audio network data to provide a superior, uninterrupted online
entertainment experience.


“The Killer Wireless-N 1202 and the E2200 stay true
to our promise of providing the best in online application performance,
intelligence and control for consumers of both desktop and laptop
computers,” said Mike Cubbage, director of business development,
networking business unit, Qualcomm Atheros.


These products are meant for creating superior
entertainment and real-time communications experience for the end user by
ensuring that critical online applications get the bandwidth and priority.


The 2×2 MIMO Wi-Fi module offers Bluetooth for the first
time, providing users with the ability to play online games or stream media
while simultaneously having Bluetooth connectivity, an essential feature for
online gamers who use Bluetooth-enabled peripherals.


Both the Killer Wireless-N 1202 and the Killer E2200
ensure important applications that require high-speed connectivity, such as
online games and video chat, get priority over less important traffic, such as
incoming email or system updates.


All Killer technology ships with the exclusive Killer
Network Manager, giving users the power to set priorities for all network
applications, increase or reduce the bandwidth each application uses, or block
an application entirely – all in a unique graphical interface.
