Qualcomm has launched its Wi-Fi 7 network portfolio – a lineup of Wi-Fi chips for enterprise access points, premium home routers and advanced mesh systems. The Qualcomm Wi-Fi 7 platform is the company’s third generation Networking Pro series of professional networking platforms.
Qualcomm’s platform supports three spectrum bands in the form of multiple channels, 2.4GHz, 5GHz and 6GHz.
“Qualcomm Technologies has enabled the era of 10Gbps Wi-Fi with our first customer delivery of the Wi-Fi 7 Networking Pro Series,” said Nick Kucharevsky, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Wireless Infrastructure and Networking, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc.
“Combining support for the latest Wi-Fi 7 innovations with our unique product architecture, the platform enables solutions for large public spaces ranging from entire home mesh to connectivity networks. With this product range, we are able to deliver solutions for today’s applications and For both the emerging Wi-Fi 7 ecosystem, customers anticipate a new class of systems.”
As a new generation standard, Wi-Fi 7 not only improves transmission speed but also brings many new features like more efficient QAM modulation, multiple connections, adaptive connections etc.
Like previous generations, these third generation Qualcomm Networking Pro Series platforms are custom designed to ensure customer instant time-to-market across a wide range of connectivity solutions. The company claims that the highly scalable platform architecture leverages a common software and hardware development approach to provide a range of globally relevant configurations, each supporting multiband channel utilization schemes optimized to address different regional spectrum availability. supports.
Qualcomm Networking Pro Series Wi-Fi 7 platforms achieve unparalleled performance through expert implementation of key features, including:
Support for Wi-Fi 7 320MHz channels (providing a two-fold increase in throughput over Wi-Fi 6) providing maximum throughput and ultra-low latency for the most demanding real-time gaming, streaming, video sharing and XR applications does.
Multi-Link technology enables customer traffic to dynamically aggregate or alternate bands to avoid wireless interference and provide deterministic, predictable low latency in heavily congested environments.
When paired with leading Wi-Fi 7 client systems such as the Qualcomm FastConnect 7800, the Qualcomm Networking Pro Series, Gen 3 platforms can offer support for High Band Simultaneous (HBS) multi-link. HBS Multi-Link leverages the high performance 5 and 6GHz bands to deliver the best throughput and latency multi-link performance.
Qualcomm AFC Service is a turnkey solution for hardware and software, to maximize 6 GHz operation, including long range and external. Qualcomm AFC solution for customer device integration is available today on the Qualcomm Networking Pro Series and Qualcomm Immersive Home platforms.
