New wi-fi chipset promisses speedier wireless networks
Using a unique multiple antenna system, the AGN100 extends existing Wi-Fi rates to 108 Mbps per channel while remaining compatible with all common Wi-Fi standards.

“The Airgo team has removed all the fundamental technical barriers to WLAN adoption such as spotty coverage, limited range, insufficient speeds, inadequate security, and a confusing array of standards,” said Greg Raleigh, chief executive officer of Airgo. “By resolving all of these difficult problems in a single highly advanced cost effective solution for OEMs, Wi-Fi can finally fulfill the wireless promise of seamless, cost effective and secure home multimedia networks, enterprise data networks and Wi-Fi hotspots.”

With Airgo’s chipset, consumer electronics manufacturers can realize their vision of enabling the multimedia wireless home with simultaneous transmission of high definition video, DVD-quality music, interactive gaming and data networking. Equally, wireless LAN equipment manufacturers wanting to offer standards-compliant products able to cover a typical office environment with only one access point or provision an entire campus with minimum equipment and deployment costs now have the technology they need.

“Wireless equipment manufacturers who have examined our technology realize that Airgo’s high throughput Wi-Fi performance will be a compelling, differentiating feature in laptop PCs, HDTVs, PDAs and enterprise network products,” added Raleigh.

Breakthrough wireless performance forms the starting point for the advantages of Airgo’s WLAN chipset. Airgo has also re-thought the entire network solution, designing features into the chipset to support robust security, quality of service for video and music or voice over IP, roaming, and other networking features that aid in the deployment and operation of Wi-Fi networks. The chipset also supports the same extremely strong standards-based network security technology used in the most demanding enterprise Ethernet networks, ending the need for proprietary wireless LAN security patches.

The chipset supports all 802.11 a, b, and g modes and also extends rates to 108 Mbps. Airgo has worked with its manufacturing partners to create ready-to-produce designs for Access Points as well as Cardbus, MiniPCI, and PCI clients.
