Freescale semiconductor and Quantenna Communications have introduced a 10 Gbit/s WiFi enabled home gateway. It combines the Quantenna 802.11ac router and Freescale’s quad-core QorIQ LS1043A SoC.

The QorIQ LS1043A residential gateway supports Linux-based security, video streaming, and networking applications and Freescale say this new router “will provide dramatic boosts in bandwidth, throughput and quality of service, thereby meeting the rising demand for home access points able to manage and support increasing numbers of Wi-Fi devices. It categorizes wireless and Internet traffic for streaming and time-sensitive priority, thereby optimizing the gateway for gaming, video streaming and Internet voice quality. Quantenna’s QSR10G 10G Wave 3 802.11ac Wi-Fi solution can support up to twelve 802.11ac data streams. The system features “True 8 × 8” adaptive, Multi-User Multiple Input, Multiple Output (MU-MIMO) technology using 5 GHz networks, as well as a 4×4 MIMO configuration on 2.4 GHz. Data transmission uses 1024 QAM as well as a 10Gbps copper or fibre WAN connection.

The device is also said to feature virtualisation hardware and allows over-the-air software updates with Freescale’s thrust architecture. To support development Freescale have a Linux OpenWRT-based residential gateway Application Solution Kit. It provides low-level routing and security acceleration functions and includes the CodeWarrior toolchain.
