Celeno, NXP to deliver whole home multi gigabit Wi-Fi to market

Celeno Communications has formed a joint reference system with NXP Semiconductors for the development of high-end gateways and smart Wi-Fi extenders, the company said.

The resulting products will enable service providers and equipment vendors to deliver flawless, self-organized and self-managed multi-gigabit whole home Wi-Fi services, a necessity in the modern home.

The new joint reference system is based upon a distributed access point architecture that augments the home gateway with Wi-Fi extenders connected via a wired or wireless backbone.

The reference system gateway and extender components are a combination of NXP´s LS1012A and LS1043A SoC Platforms, and Celeno´s 11ac and 11n Wi-Fi chipsets, enabling a range of configurations from cost-effective 2×2 Wi-Fi extenders up to high-performance 4×4 Wi-Fi gateways and extenders.

Combined with Celeno´s ControlAIRâ„¢ software for device orchestration, this reference system places a whole-home, self-organized Wi-Fi solution within reach.
