Qualcomm Technologies launched its next-generation mesh networking platform that will integrate WiFi 6 and 6E and offer an architecture that’ll better handle packets of data.
The Qualcomm Immersive Home Platform is designed to deploy gigabit-speed wireless throughout the home.
According to Qualcomm, there will be four product tiers for its Immersive Home Platform, which has reference designs currently being sampled.
Here’s a look at the various flavors of Qualcomm’s Immersive Home Platform and networking capabilities.
- Qualcomm Immersive Home 318 Platform will include 8-stream Tri-Band in a configuration for 2.4GHZ, 5GHz and 6GHz with a total of 7.8 Gbps available. The platform also includes 160 MHz channels in 5 and 6GHz bands as well as a Wi-Fi 6E configuration.
- The Immersive Home 316 Platform has a 6-stream Tri-Band setup and lacks the WiFi 6E configuration in the 318.
- Qualcomm Immersive Home 216 Platform has a 6-stream WiFi 6 configuration with 5.4 Gbps available. There’s also support for 160 MHz channels in 5GHz bands.
- The Immersive Home 214 Platform has a 4-stream WiFi 6 configuration across 2.4GHz and 5GHz with a total of 3 Gbps available.
Qualcomm said the new mesh platforms also deliver 2.5x throughput per watt compared to the previous generation, broad WiFi mesh support, smart home integration and low-latency support.
