5G Wifi SoC for enterprise enables fast on-the-go Gigabit connectivity.
Broadcom Corporation launched the BCM43460, a 5G WiFi system-on-chip (SoC) designed to address the growing demand for Gigabit speeds in enterprise, wireless cloud networks and carrier access. Based on the new IEEE 802.llac standard, the BCM43460 system-on-chip (SoC) is said to be 3x faster and 6x more power efficient than previous generation 802.1 In solutions and is interoperable with legacy 802.11 technologies. Features such as the company's explicit and implicit transmit beam-forming technology significantly extend the range, coverage and network efficiency of enterprise wireless networks, particularly in single antenna devices such as smartphones, according to the company. The new enterprise focused airtime fairness supports a denser environment of mixed speed Wi-Fi devices. Advanced spectrum analysis features combine in-depth RF analysis with real-time WLAN information for real-time troubleshooting.
