Qualcomm Presents Immersive Home Platform for Wi-Fi Networks

Qualcomm Technologies has released the Qualcomm Immersive Home Platforms, a successor to the company’s groundbreaking mesh networking platforms.

Qualcomm“We have launched the Qualcomm Immersive Home platforms, a fresh approach to home networking leveraging high powered Wi-Fi 6 and 6E, a fresh architectural design customized for home deployments, and advanced features designed to deliver Gigabit performance to every corner of the home,” said Nick Kucharewski, vice president and general manager, Wireless Infrastructure & Networking, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc.“Today, like offices, classrooms, movie theatres, and everything in-between move into the home, high-performance Wi-Fi has transitioned from luxury to mission-critical utility.”

“Before COVID-19, the proliferation of Wi-Fi-enabled products in the home and increasingly HD, 4k, and soon 8k video meant an increasing focus on more capable Wi-Fi access points by consumers and service providers,” said Phil Solis, research director at IDC. “During the COVID-19 pandemic, network needs became even more pronounced with many Wi-Fi networks stressed by the shift to more work, education, and entertainment from home. Wi-Fi 6 and Wi-Fi 6E mesh network solutions such as the Qualcomm Immersive Home Platforms are critical to enabling Wi-Fi access point vendors to provide the range, data rates, and capacity now required in many homes.”

“Wi-Fi’s popularity has created increasingly diverse and densely populated Wi-Fi environments, including home networks which must now support many demanding applications simultaneously,” said Kevin Robinson, senior vice president of Marketing, Wi-Fi Alliance. “The capabilities of Wi-Fi 6E, such as gigabit speeds, low latency, and high capacity, will benefit users where they now need it most and allow Wi-Fi devices to operate efficiently in the most dynamic home connectivity settings.”

Designed to deploy gigabit-speed wireless performance to every room in the home in form factors as small as the palm, these devices are cost-effective enough to target low consumer price points. This engineering feat is achieved through a novel modular architecture approach, significant advancements in-network packet processing technology and integration of next-generation Wi-Fi 6 and 6E.

As home network performance has become mission-critical, Qualcomm Technologies is meeting the challenge to provide corner-to-corner Gigabit wireless performance, to ensure every meeting is productive, every classroom is engaged, and every device is connected.
