Broadcom Announces Wi-Fi GbE
Broadcom Corporation, a global leader in semiconductors for wired and wireless communications, has announced Wi-Fi Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) processor that extends its Intensi-fi family of draft-802.11n solutions.
By integrating a GbE controller and increasing the clock speed, the processor eliminates bottlenecks, allowing the system to achieve theoretical maximum wireless 802.11n performance, nearly 8 times that of 802.11g.
In real world tests conducted by Broadcom and validated by a third-party testing company, products powered by its new version, BCM4705 GbE processor, produced Wi-Fi throughput in excess of 160 (Mbps). In addition, highlighting the power of the Intensi-fi architecture, these products have also demonstrated a consistent data throughput of up to 200 Mbps and achieved over 250 Mbps in a simultaneous dual band configuration in ‘clean air’ laboratory tests.
“The performance of draft-802.11n wireless routers shouldn’t be gated by associated networking components that can keep these products from reaching the performance targets of the forthcoming 802.11n standard,” said Rahul Patel, director- marketing, Wireless LAN business unit, Broadcom. “By offering the Wi-Fi network processor, Broadcom is enabling manufacturers to deliver premium access points, routers and residential gateways that deliver the full value of 802.11n networking.”
