Qorvo Promises Faster, Lower-Cost Wi-Fi

Company Introduces an Expanded Portfolio of 802.11ax Products for Wi-Fi Gateways, Set-Top Boxes, Routers, and Enterprise Access Points October 10, 2017
Why This Matters

Qorvo’s advanced solutions are designed to help our customers maximize Wi-Fi capacity and data rates with 802.11ax, while reducing costs.

 
 
Qorvo, a provider of RF solutions, today introduced an expanded portfolio of 802.11ax products for Wi-Fi gateways, set-top boxes, routers, and enterprise access points. The integrated modules and advanced filters are designed to improve Wi-Fi coverage, enable “smaller end” products, and reduces costs for consumers, service providers, and manufacturers.
 
“Qorvo’s advanced solutions are designed to help our customers maximize Wi-Fi capacity and data rates with 802.11ax, while reducing costs,” said Cees Links, general manager of Qorvo’s Wireless Connectivity business unit. “For manufacturers of high-performance Wi-Fi equipment, thermal issues can create significant design delays and additional expense due to the need to add heat sinks and fans. Our high-efficiency portfolio reduces the need for thermal management, helping our customers design smaller, more attractive products without internal fans.”
                                                                                          
Qorvo’s bulk acoustic wave (BAW) filters allow full power output across all Wi-Fi channels, helping consumers receive reliable Wi-Fi service through the entire home. This helps to cut support costs and increase consumer satisfaction, the company says.

“About 40 percent of all operator service calls relate to poor Wi-Fi performance in the home,” Links said. “With improved coverage, operators can reduce expensive truck rolls and service calls, which cost an average of $15-$35 in addition to any repeater/extender hardware required.”
  
802.11ax is meant to greatly increase network capacity by supporting up to eight simultaneous data streams, each delivering up to 1.2 Gbps, to connect many more devices at greater speeds. Qorvo’s broad 802.11ax portfolio includes 2.4GHz and 5GHz front-end modules (FEMs) and BAW filters. The portfolio’s high energy-efficiency FEMs reduce the thermal issues associated with supporting multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) in Wi-Fi equipment, allowing manufacturers to reduce product size and cost. Qorvo’s BAW bandedge and coexistence filters are designed to improve Wi-Fi quality of service and prevent interference with adjacent LTE frequencies.
