Intel Announces 802.11ax Chipsets for Faster Wi-Fi - IT Peer Network

Intel Announces 802.11ax Chipsets for Faster Wi-Fi - IT Peer Network

However, Intel is also making its own optimizations to the standard for better performance amongst its own 802.11ax devices.

Celeno Communications, the provider of smart, managed Wi-Fi solutions, has announced its Everest 802.11ax silicon solution created to address the demand for a high performance yet cost optimized solution as well as ensuring rapid migration of existing 802.11ac designs to 802.11ax, the company said.

Intel may have been one of the first to produce 802.11ax chips. The new 802.11ax standard offers considerable improvements over its predecessor, 802.11ac, with up to 40% higher peak data rates for a single client and up to 4x higher average throughput per user in congested environments consequentially increasing network efficiency and battery life of clients. It is expected that most other companies will not make 802.11ax compatible devices until 2019. Now multiple routers are more common, and the Wi-Fi Alliance has begun work to let multiple network devices cooperate automatically so the data gets where it needs to be without our having to manually link this phone to that router and that light bulb to that one. Devices based on 802.11ax Draft 1.0 will suffer from a suboptimal experience and increased interference.

While it is a high price point, "the ultimate goal is to have it under US$500 and we'll be able to do that" by next year, he said. Vuzix unveiled at CES a new pair of smart glasses to deliver augmented reality content from connected smartphones and computers.

In the e-mail, the Alliance said that most companies will not manufacture devices compliant to 802.11ax this year. What's holding it back for this year are delayed product certification.

Qualcomm announced the availability of 802.11ax chips in February last year, and even though Intel is coming on board with their 802.11ax chips this year, it may still be a while before certified products hit the markets. This is due to product certification.

Designs based on Intel's 802.11ac infrastructure chipset - the Intel Home Wi-Fi Chipset WAV 500 Series - can upgrade to 802.11ax with no change to the host SoC, and additionally, Intel has said that its new 802.11ax home Wi-Fi chipsets will offer backward compatibility with older Wi-Fi technologies to support a wider range of client devices.
