Quantenna and SoftAtHome Deliver Turnkey 802.11ax Solutions for Service Providers

Del

AMSTERDAM, The Netherlands, Sept. 14, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Quantenna Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ: QTNA), the innovator and global leader of high-performance Wi-Fi solutions, and SoftAtHome, the technology company dedicated to the digital home, are joining forces to accelerate availability of Wi-Fi solutions based on the latest draft of IEEE 802.11ax standard. Through their collaboration, Quantenna and SoftAtHome have solved the challenges of hardware and software integration in order to deliver turnkey solutions to service providers, enabling them to rapidly transition to 802.11ax. This collaboration is targeting both high-performance applications based on the 12-stream QSR10GU-AX PLUS, and mainstream applications based on the 9-stream QSR5GU-AX PLUS. Both solutions are currently being actively promoted to the market.

Within the end-user’s home, broadband entertainment, TV services, Internet access and IoT now affect service providers’ NPS scores. Customers expect consistent and secured wireless connectivity that can only be achieved through an operator-managed solution.  Wifi’ON delivers the best end-to-end Wi-Fi experience from any corner of the home thanks to key features enabled in the Home Gateway and in operators’ managed devices such as Set-Top Boxes, Wi-Fi extenders or Wi-Fi repeaters.  Wifi’ON provides Smart Wi-Fi connections thanks to an intelligent channel selection algorithm and instant steering mechanisms. SoftAtHome Wifi’ON is smart enough to prioritize time-critical traffic such as voice, video or gaming.

Quantenna’s unique 11ax portfolio consists of:

QSR10GU-AX PLUS: targeting high-performance, with the industry’s most advanced features:

  • Support for 8x8 MIMO at 5GHz, that provides the highest level of performance, both in terms of throughput and capacity
  • Multi-User MIMO, enabling simultaneous transmission to multiple high-throughput clients
  • Adaptive MIMO, to dynamically switch from 8x8 MIMO to dual 4x4 MIMO depending on channel conditions, and provide the best possible MIMO configuration
  • ESP algorithm to enhance the beamforming and MU-MIMO performance to legacy devices

QSR5GU-AX PLUS: targeting mainstream applications, with innovative features such as:

  • Support for 5x5 MIMO in the 5GHz band. The addition of a fifth chain allows up to 50% more speed, especially in MU-MIMO operation
  • Background scanning: 5x5 allows background 5GHz scanning by not interrupting existing data transmissions, leading to improved network capacity
  • Always-on DFS: This algorithm intelligently selects and operates in the cleanest DFS channel including the weather radar channels

“Meeting the requirements of the latest IEEE 802.11ax standard required a deep technical engagement between Quantenna’s software and hardware teams and SoftAtHome,” said James Chen, vice president of product line management. "In working together, we deliver a solution that extends Wi-Fi reach with highest performance, enabling service providers with turnkey solutions that enhance Wi-Fi experience with blazing fast performance at scale.”

Lionel Gremeau, product marketing management director at SoftAtHome added, “Wi-Fi quality and connectivity have become central to enjoying any digital service at home and end-users expect operators to deliver the best Wi-Fi quality. The combination of new 802.11ax Quantenna platforms with our Wifi’ON software solution will help operators in their essential mission to deliver the best end-to-end in-home Wi-Fi experience from any corner of the home.”

Pittsburgh, PA, Jan. 17, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Calgon Carbon Corporation today announced a global price increase, effective February 1, 2019, where contracts permit, on all activated carbon products and related equipment due to a continued escalation in raw material costs and transportation expenses. The increase is expected to range between 10-15%, depending on the specific product, raw material type, services provided, and global market dynamics. The primary raw materials used for producing activated carbon are coal, coconut shell, and wood, each of which has gone up in price. Additionally, costs associated with both operating manufacturing facilities and transporting materials have also escalated. “Calgon Carbon’s raw material costs have increased significantly. Despite every effort to offset these increases through continuous improvements, the recent rise in raw material costs has exceeded our efforts,” said Jim Coccagno, Chief Commercial Officer for Calgon Carbon Corporation. “

Taconic Biosciences’ Animals Complete Most Recent Mission to the International Space Station17.1.2019 15:29Pressemelding

RENSSELAER, N.Y., Jan. 17, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Taconic Biosciences, a global leader in providing genetically engineered rodent model solutions, announces the completion of a recent mission to the International Space Station. This project represents a collaboration between the International Space Station (ISS) National Lab, National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), Bioserve Space Technologies with support from the Leidos Corporation, and Taconic. Taconic has participated in several spaceflight missions with NASA since 1985. Most recently, as part of the science and research investigation payloads supported by the SpaceX Commercial Resupply Services missions, Taconic prepared mice to live aboard the International Space Station for extended periods.

Therefore, mice exposed to microgravity via spaceflight are a valuable model to understand and devel

MPP Global Bridges the Innovation Gap by Centralising Physical and Digital Subscriber Management and Billing in a Single Cloud Platform17.1.2019 12:29Pressemelding

WARRINGTON, UK, Jan. 17, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MPP Global, the technology company that delivers eSuite, the world’s smartest subscriber management & billing platform, announces the launch of pivotal new functionality which enables media organisations to seamlessly create and manage the sale of physical subscriptions. This positions eSuite as the complete physical and digital subscription management solution. The development of this industry-first functionality was borne out of the common challenge for publishers when managing multiple systems for deploying bundled print and digital subscriptions. This is inflexible for publishers and limits choice for their customers, restricting the ability to seamlessly create and offer digital and print subscription bundles. Despite increased consumer uptake of digital subscriptions, print still accounts for almost 90% of circulation revenues globally. To drive reader revenues successfully, publishers require functionality to execute complementar
