Qualcomm 2x2 802.11ac Wi-Fi Technology Adopted by Leading Chinese and Global OEMs

The 2x2 802.11ac Wi-Fi with MU-MIMO solutions from Qualcomm Technologies have now been used by more than 100 Smartphone, Tablet, PC, VR, AR Designs from Leading Chinese and Global OEMs. They have leverage Integrated 2x2 Wi-Fi 802.11ac Technology from Qualcomm Technologies to Improve Mobile Experiences and Performance.

OEMs are realizing the benefits of Qualcomm Technologies' integrated 2x2 802.11ac Wi-Fi with MU-MIMO solutions to provide premium Wi-Fi performance and improve the user experience – by providing concurrent multi-device support, virtually eliminating dead spots, reducing download times and increasing web browsing speed. The 2x2 11ac Wi-Fi technology is currently available on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 and 660 Mobile Platforms, working with companion WCN3990 solution.

Devices that support 2x2 Wi-Fi have two antennas instead of one, offering better signal penetration and stronger coverage. With double the antennas, the Snapdragon 835 and 660 Mobile Platforms are able to provide up to twice the user throughput and deliver a significant improvement in coverage. This is especially beneficial in eliminating dead spots in houses and offices made of thick brick and concrete walls, enabling users to enjoy virtually unfettered video, faster downloads, and an excellent connectivity experience in the entire home or office.

The Snapdragon 835 and 660 Mobile Platforms also support intelligent antenna sharing between LTE and Wi-Fi, so that OEMs can cost-effectively offer 2x2 Wi-Fi performances with only one additional antenna. Furthermore, the 2x2 Wi-Fi technology also supports MU-MIMO that can boost the performance in crowded networks by allowing multiple devices to be served simultaneously. The fact that 2x2 Wi-Fi in Snapdragon 835 and 660 is integrated, results in lower power consumption and cost improvements.

The 10 nm FF integrated 2x2 Wi-Fi technology offers differentiated performance in improved power consumption, coverage, data throughput and advanced features, outperforming competing non-integrated, discrete solutions, holding great promise particularly in highly-dense, urban environments, such as those in China. By supporting 2x2 Wi-Fi, the Snapdragon 835 and 660 Mobile Platforms are helping OEMs deliver the robust Wi-Fi coverage and fast user speeds consumers demand, while using less power.

A number of leading Chinese smartphone and networking OEMs including Vivo, Nubia and TP-LINK have begun incorporating 2x2 Wi-Fi technology on their devices to provide better Wi-Fi connectivity and performance.
