Qualcomm unveils its next generation Wi-Fi 7 Networking Pro Series | #microsoft | #hacking | #cybersecurity


Semiconductor company Qualcomm Technologies announces the sampling and availability of its Wi-Fi capable Qualcomm Networking Pro Series Gen 3 family of platforms to partners.

Building upon Qualcomm Networking Pro Series platforms, the products combine Wi-Fi 7 features with Qualcomm’s multi-channel management technologies to improve speed, lower latency, and enhance network utilisation of Wi-Fi 6/6E devices.

“Combining support for the latest Wi-Fi 7 innovations with our unique product platform architecture, the platform enables solutions ranging from whole-home mesh to powerful connectivity networks for large public venues. With this product line, we anticipate a new class of customer systems for both today’s applications and the emerging Wi-Fi 7 ecosystem,” says Qualcomm Technologies senior vice president and general manager wireless infrastructure and networking Nick Kucharewski.

“Introducing Wi-Fi 7 innovations such as Simultaneous Multi-Link Operations, 4K QAM, quad-band configurations in a highly scalable, modular, and optimised architecture, Qualcomm Technologies is raising the table stakes once again and driving the industry into the 10Gbps+ era,” Counterpoint Research vice president research Neil Shah says.




This third generation of the Qualcomm Networking Pro Series enables systems with peak aggregate wireless capacity of 33Gbps and point-to-point connections exceeding 10Gbps. With features for interference detection and multilink operation, the Wi-Fi 7 Network Pro Series showcases low latency across challenging shared wireless environments, enabling application performance rivalling private spectrum.

The products can support high speed low latency wireless backhaul for home mesh Wi-Fi and enterprise infrastructure despite interferences. With a combined internet access such as 5G fixed wireless access or 10G PON fibre, Qualcomm says customers may experience high resolution videoconferencing, augmented or virtual reality, and cloud gaming.

Available in tri-band, and quad-band configurations, the Qualcomm Networking Pro Series features Wi-Fi connectivity across 2.4GHz, 5GHz, and 6GHz spectrum.

Qualcomm Networking Pro Series Wi-Fi 7 platforms’ key features include:

Support for Wi-Fi 7 320MHz channels (delivering a 2x increase in throughput over Wi-Fi 6) provides maximum throughput and latency for real-time gaming, streaming, video sharing, and XR applications.

Multi-link technology enables customer traffic to aggregate or alternate bands to avoid wireless interference and deliver low latency in heavily congested environments. When paired with leading Wi-Fi 7 client systems, like the Qualcomm FastConnect 7800, Qualcomm Networking Pro Series, Gen 3 platforms can offer support for High Band Simultaneous (HBS) Multi-Link. HBS Multi-Link leverages only 5 and 6GHz bands to deliver the throughput and latency Multi-Link performance.

To maximise 6 GHz operation, including long-range and outdoors, the Qualcomm AFC service is a turnkey solution for hardware and software, available for customer device integration today across Qualcomm Networking Pro Series and Qualcomm Immersive Home platforms.

As with previous generations, the third-generation Qualcomm Networking Pro Series platforms ensure customer quick time-to-market in a wide range of connectivity solutions.

The platform architecture leverages common software and hardware development approach to deliver configurations that support optimised multiband channel utilisation schemes to address varied regional spectrum availability.

Customers can select from a range of platforms, whether targeting enterprise, small/medium-sized business, carrier gateway, prosumer mesh, or home deployments.

The full range of platform offerings include:

Qualcomm Networking Pro 1620: Quad-band, 16-stream, 33.1Gbps peak wireless capacity for stadium, large enterprise, premium home mesh systems.

Qualcomm Networking Pro 1220: Tri-band, 12-stream, 21.6Gbps peak wireless capacity for enterprise, SMB, prosumer, and premium home mesh systems.

Qualcomm Networking Pro 820: Quad-band, 8-stream, 13.7Gbps peak wireless capacity for enterprise, SMB, prosumer, and premium home mesh systems.

Qualcomm Networking Pro 620: Tri-band, 6-stream, 10.8Gbps peak wireless capacity for enterprise, SMB, gaming, and home mesh systems.
