Distributed Wi-Fi networks use multiple routers to spread Wi-Fi signals throughout the home. A key strength of Qorvo Wi-Fi modules is the ability to fully utilize the frequency band by using industry-leading filters – maximizing the output power of in-home Wi-Fi signals while simultaneously optimizing their efficiency and lowering power consumption. The use of sub-par filters results in diminished usage of the available band.
“In the last year, we have seen a flood of new distributed Wi-Fi mesh network products released in the marketplace,” said Christian Kim, senior analyst, IoT and connectivity, for IHS Markit. “With the addition of smart home devices and the increasing home use of streaming services, such as Netflix or Spotify, we expect to see continued introduction of new distributed Wi-Fi mesh systems in 2018.”
Qorvo technology delivers expanded coverage and reduced energy costs for consumers, while service providers and manufacturers benefit from improved customer satisfaction and fewer service calls and truck rolls.
Cees Links, general manager of Qorvo’s Wireless Connectivity business unit, said, “The notion of ‘power’ can be confusing, but Qorvo’s innovation labs have figured out how to maximize the output power of Wi-Fi signals throughout the home, while optimizing efficiency to lower power consumption. With Qorvo’s advanced RF technology, equipment makers can create distributed Wi-Fi networks that use unobtrusive end devices throughout the home, eliminate dead spots, and scale to more applications and users. Qorvo eliminates Wi-Fi problems before they emerge.”
Qorvo’s distributed Wi-Fi mesh solutions are in production, and have secured multiple design wins, including several top equipment providers that connect millions of consumers around the world.
