Amsterdam – Broadband World Forum - October 23, 2014 - Quantenna Communications, Inc., the leader in ultra-high performance Wi-Fi, today announced it has been named the winner of the Best Broadband Access Innovation – Wireless at the 2014 Broadband Infovision Awards for its QSR1000 Wi-Fi solution.
Broadband World Forum winners of the 2014 Broadband Infovision Awards have been dubbed as one of the most strongly contested awards to date, hundreds of service and solution providers entered for their chance to win recognition of their work within the broadband sector. The Quantenna QSR1000 was selected for its combination of 802.11ac 4x4 architecture and MU-MIMO technology – the only Wi-Fi technology on the market to deliver unparalleled performance, range and stability to support interference free transmission to many more Wi-Fi devices simultaneously.
With its numerous innovations that go above and beyond wireless standards, Quantenna’s Wi-Fi reaches farther and transmits faster and more reliably than any other. Quantenna continues to innovate and earlier this year unveiled the world’s first 10G Wi-Fi that will deliver extraordinary Wi-Fi capacity and performance while using today’s available spectrum to support the ever-increasing demand for Wi-Fi connectivity inside and outside the home.
In addition, we would like to congratulate SofAtHome who won the Best Customer Experience Innovation for its Universal Cast Dongle. Powered by the QSR1000, the industry’s fastest 4x4 802.11ac Wi-Fi chipset from Quantenna, the SOP7 embedded platform offers OEMs greater bandwidth and a better overall quality of experience for their TV and network operator solutions, from set-top boxes, to dongles, NAS and home gateways.
“After a lot of deliberating, we finally selected the winners we felt demonstrated first-class innovation and excellence in creating a globally connected society,” said James McGough, Director of Broadband World Forum and a founding member of Broadband 100. “We would like to congratulate Quantenna and all of the winners.”
