Sunrise and Quantenna First to Launch State-of-the-Art Residential Gateway Using 1.7Gbps 4x4 802.11ac Wave 2 Wi-Fi in Switzerland

Fremont, Calif. and Zurich, Switzerland – October 6, 2015 – Quantenna Communications, Inc. the leader in ultra-high performance Wi-Fi, and Sunrise, the largest private telecommunications provider in Switzerland today announced the launch of a brand new multi-mode DSL and fiber residential gateway that supports G.fast with Super Vectoring as well as fiber and includes state-of-the-art 4x4 802.11ac Wave 2 Wi-Fi from Quantenna. The Quantenna QSR1000 chipset is capable of delivering speeds up to 1.7Gbps which enables Sunrise subscribers to experience unmatched network performance and Wi-Fi coverage in their home. In addition to class-leading speeds, the award-winning QSR1000 chipset also supports many advanced features designed to deliver superior security, quality of service, and improved system capacity.
Wi-Fi devices are proliferating extremely rapidly around the world. Wi-Fi has become the main and sometimes the sole interface to popular devices like smartphones, tablets, set top boxes, game consoles, TVs and wearables. The emergence of ultra HD constantly requires more bandwidth as well as reliable communications.
The need for this level of wireless performance in residential gateways requires novel designs and architecture to support current and future needs. The QSR1000 chipset supports MU-MIMO, which enables simultaneous transmission to several clients. This greatly enhances the overall wireless network capacity inside the house.
“Quantenna is proud to work with Sunrise on this innovative platform” said Lionel Bonnot, Senior Vice President of Marketing and Business Development at Quantenna. “Innovation is what drives us at Quantenna and it is great to enable new services and be first to market”.

Sunrise offers customer-relevant innovations with added value. Therefore, we strive to offer our customers a high quality Wi-Fi solution too.”
