By integrating dual concurrent 802.11 radios and multi-user, multiple input and multiple output (MU-MIMO), the AP3200 is designed to achieve best-in-class performance for low-power, fanless applications such as enterprise access points (EAPs), smart gateways, multi-room carrier-grade video distribution, small/medium business (SMB) routers, and network-attached storage (NAS) devices, among others.

"With the advent of IoT and the growing number of wireless connected devices in the home and enterprise, robust and secure wireless connectivity is an absolute requirement," said Weili Dai, President and Co-Founder of Marvell. "In continuing our leadership position, our advanced wireless gateway platform enables our OEM and service provider customers to quickly and easily bring their products to market."

The AP3200 reference platform is comprised of a highly integrated dual core SoC and the company’s 88W8964, the latest member of the Avastar family, featuring dual concurrent 802.11 radios (4×4 802.11ac Wave-2 with 160 MHz support, MU-MIMO, and a 4×4 802.11n with 256 QAM support). To achieve its performance, the AP3200 features the programmable networking and security offload capabilities of the ARMADA product line, freeing up the host CPU utilization for managing the increasing bandwidth demand for services brought by the Internet of Things (IoT) and Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) movements.

The ARMADA-395 SoC also integrates a dual core host CPU running at up to 1.8GHz and embedded support for 1Gbps/2.5Gbps/10Gbps Ethernet speeds for addressing different levels of network speeds. These features, coupled with transmit beamforming, make the AP3200 optimized for multi-stream, carrier-grade video distribution as well as other high performance, low latency applications.
