KDDI, NEC, Qualcomm Partner on 802.11ax Carrier Gateways
“At KDDI, we are committed to delivering the next era of broadband and entertainment experiences to our subscribers and leveraging the most advanced technology to achieve that is of the utmost importance,” said Yasuhisa Yamada, deputy general manager, product & customer service sector, KDDI Corporation. “Qualcomm Technologies and NEC (News - Alert) Platforms have raised the bar in terms of innovation in home connectivity with this advanced and highly-integrated 802.11ax solution. We are looking forward to working with them to deliver the enhanced experiences our customers have come to expect from our services.”
The gateway, the BL1000HW, employs the Qualcomm IPQ807x family of 802.11ax chipsets. That allows it to deliver up to four times higher wireless networking throughput compared to other carrier gateways in the market, the companies say.
The Qualcomm IPQ807x 14 nanometer Wi-Fi system-on-a-chip solutions support up to 10 gigabits per second wide area network performance. They deliver up to 6 gigabits per second peak physical layer rates on Wi-Fi. And they allow multiple users to be simultaneously connected to an access point.
“Qualcomm Technologies has been a market leader in the development of innovative 11ax solutions that solve some of consumers’ most pressing demands for better Wi-Fi and advanced user experiences,” said Rahul Patel (News - Alert), senior vice president and general manager, connectivity and networking, Qualcomm Technologies. “Our 802.11ax solution is a testament to that innovation, powering the industry’s first commercially available carrier-class home getaway with one of the industry’s highest performing 802.11ax chipset. As KDDI and NEC Platforms continue to push boundaries with this powerful solution, we are thrilled to be partnering with them to revolutionize Wi-Fi connectivity and deliver virtually unmatched performance to their customers.”
