Celeno Communications is rolling out the CL2330 single PCIe WLAN chip, compliant with IEEE 802.11ac standard for WiFi networking. Developed for the benefit of cable service providers and multi-system operators (MSO), the CL2330 is powered by OptimisAIR, Celeno's proprietary video-grade technology. The 802.11ac 3x3 solution allows for optimum performance of broadband gateway applications.

The new 802.11ac standard which operates on the 5GHz band, aims to improve WiFi capabilities by increasing modem speed and enabling operation on four bonded WiFi channels. Leveraging Celeno's OptimisAIR technology, the solution maximises the 802.11ac WiFi capabilities for whole home coverage, assures reliable wireless video service delivery and quality of experience for multiple connected devices and helps mitigate interferences in dense deployments.

Celeno has been integrating its previous generation concurrent dual band 802.11n radio chips with the Intel Puma 6 reference designs as well as actively collaborating on designs into data gateways and video gateways for Cable MSO's. Celeno is now integrating its new CL2330 802.11ac solution with the Intel Puma 6 for the newest generation of gateways.

Features and Benefits

The CL2330 supports 3 radios, 3 MIMO streams configuration, operating at 80MHz and achieving 1.3Gbit/s PHY speed. The CL2330 operates in both 2.4GHz and uncongested 5GHz frequency channels and works with legacy home networks as well as new, 802.11ac 5GHz powered portable devices for a superior video experience. The CL2330 reference design is now available for video and data gateway designs.
