Comtrend Announces New Partnership to Create Broadband Gateways Powered by Quantenna’s 4×4 802.11ac Wave 2 Wi-Fi
Comtrend’s family of Quantenna-based products have super-charged WiFi, making them ideal for wireless HD video streaming and high-bandwidth applications.
IRVINE, CA (PRWEB) - AUGUST 18, 2016
Comtrend, a leader in advanced networking equipment, announced today their partnership with Quantenna for a new family of broadband gateway products. This family of products includes Comtrend’s A/VDSL Bonded Gateway (NL-3120), a VoIP version (NL-3240), a FTTH-ready Ethernet Gateway (WR-6895), and a Wireless Video Bridge (WAP-5940). Each product integrates Quantenna’s award-winning QSR1000 4×4 802.11ac MU-MIMO chipset to offer superior speed, range, efficiency, and reliability to the ever-increasing connected home.
“Quantenna’s QSR1000 is ideal for delivering demanding content like wireless video streaming to multiple client devices.” said Lionel Bonnot, Senior Vice President of Marketing and Business Development at Quantenna. “By supporting MU-MIMO, our solutions enable simultaneous transmissions to multiple clients resulting in drastically enhanced network efficiency.”
This makes Comtrend’s new gateways ideal for the latest high-bandwidth applications and services such as streaming of HD and UHD IPTV, home-automation, and online gaming. They also feature 400mW high power wireless to extend wireless coverage and to reduce dead zones in the home or office.
Vice President of Technology at Comtrend North America, Kuma Lin, states, “We are excited to have Quantenna integrated into our gateways. This can effectively eliminate the need for a second external device to connect to a wireless-enabled set top box. This means one less point of failure and one less piece of hardware to purchase and support. Similarly, if the Service Provider is currently deploying a Quantenna-based set top box, they can use a Comtrend device with Quantenna to create a superior wireless connection for the most demanding applications, including multiple HD streams so common today.”
With TR-069 device management, Service Providers can also improve customer service and lower operational costs with the ability to remotely manage and configure their devices.
