802.11ac Wave2 chipset with MU-MIMO support designed for high-end home gateway, set-top box, video bridge, router and enterprise-class AP
LAS VEGAS, Jan. 7, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — MediaTek today announces the release of MT7615, the most advanced 802.11ac System on Chip (SoC) for Wi-Fi connectivity. MediaTek once again demonstrates its commitment to leading Wi-Fi technology through the MU-MIMO and beamforming techniques deployed in MT7615.
MT7615 creates a competitive benchmark in premium Wi-Fi for greater performance in home coverage and enterprise-class security. Its Wi-Fi Quality of Service feature is designed to support low power consumption, giving end users the high throughput experience in both short and long ranges on 2.4GHz and 5GHz channels, whether in a single-user or crowded multi-user environment.
"This latest Wi-Fi product by MediaTek is the industry’s most powerful and energy-efficient SoC for home routers and enterprise APs. It is a prime example of MediaTek’s dedication to putting high-end, inclusive technology into the hands of everyone," said S.R. Tsai, General Manager of Wireless Connectivity and Networking BU at MediaTek.
MT7615 uses industry-leading, fully integrated high-performance FEM, or external FEM, to deliver HD/4K video and high-speed data in home or office environments. With beamforming and advanced MU-MIMO support, it can support four users simultaneously, increasing the spectral efficiency of today’s wireless environments.
Designed with MediaTek’s 4x4x4 (4Transmitter, 4Receiver and 4Spatial Stream), MT7615 SoC enables service providers and enterprises to provide top-performing Wi-Fi experience to their customers. It fully complies with IEEE 802.11ac (Wave1 and Wave2) and is compatible with IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n standards, which enables it to vastly improve existing networks. The SoC also combines with MediaTek’s powerful MT7623 Quad Core ARM-based network processing unit, with built-in 1×1 Wi-Fi for sniffer, background scan and spectrum analyzer purposes, plus Bluetooth connectivity for speakers and wearable devices. The result is an industry-leading wireless platform that enables the best connectivity solution for the highest quality Wi-Fi experience.
In addition, MT7623 consumes the least amount of power with Dynamic Voltage Frequency Scaling enabled, compared with similar products available on the market today.
MT7615 will be available for sampling in Q2 2015 with mass production underway in Q3 2015.
