(The Hosting News) – Qualcomm is aiming to make Wi-Fi speeds faster for everyone with its new algorithm-based technology.
The technology is known as MU-MIMO, multi-user, multiple input, multiple output, and is said to triple Wi-Fi speeds in homes, offices, and public networks, says a report from IGN.
“After seven years of MU-MIMO development and testing, we’ve gained a deep understanding of real-world channel behavior with this advanced Wi-Fi technology in crowded environments,” said senior VP of Qualcomm Antheros, Dan Rabinovitsj. “These insights have led to the creation of our precision-based algorithm technology that, along with technologies like the Qualcomm Internet Processor and StreamBoost™, maximizes Wi-Fi performance for all connected devices.”
Currently Wi-Fi networks serve users one at a time, which results in slower Internet speeds. With Qualcomm’s new technology, networks will serve multiple devices data streams simultaneously by adapting to “changes in channel conditions, device movement and application requirements to maximize throughput and device performance.”
MU-MIMO currently supports Snapdragon 805 and 801 mobile processors but will need compatible devices on both ends of the network to properly work.
Qualcomm will start shipping its MU-MIMO chips to smartphone, tablet, automotive, and router manufacturers later this year.
