San Jose, California, UNITED STATES

AMSTERDAM, Netherlands, Sept. 13, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- IBC2017Quantenna Communications, Inc. (Nasdaq:QTNA), a leading provider of high performance Wi-Fi solutions, announced that Technicolor, a worldwide technology leader in media and entertainment, has adopted the QV860 chipset in its OWA0130 dual-band extender.

This solution extends the coverage of Wi-Fi gateways and is an ideal solution for service providers looking to offer a home mesh network that further enhances the seamless connectivity users have come to expect for Wi-Fi as they roam throughout the home.

As service providers offer an increasing array of services to the home, the importance of a high-capacity, reliable Wi-Fi network becomes crucial for the successful deployment of services to multiple devices in the home. The OWA0130 will provide extended Wi-Fi coverage, at higher speed and reliability than existing Mesh products.

“A successful connected home experience today depends on reliable and high-quality Wi-Fi infrastructures which can support a growing array of devices requiring wireless access to the internet,” said Bart Vercammen, VP Product Management at Technicolor. “The collaboration between Technicolor and Quantenna offers network service providers an opportunity to offer subscribers consistent and excellent performance throughout their homes.”

“Quantenna is very pleased to partner with a media and technology leader such as Technicolor,” said Lionel Bonnot, Senior Vice President of Marketing and Business Development at Quantenna. “Our line of wireless repeater solutions, which span from 5GHz 4-stream to tri-band 12-stream products, is the most complete in the industry and shows our commitment to this burgeoning market. We believe the combination of our wireless repeater solutions with our award-winning line of 4x4, 8x8 gateways and 802.11ax solutions positions Quantenna as the undisputed leader in Wi-Fi networking for service providers, retail and enterprise customers around the world.”

Technicolor’s OWA0130 is a multi-function extender which supports both 5GHz 802.11ac Wave 2 and 2.4GHz 802.11n networks. It can be easily configured to be a wired extender, which uses a gigabit Ethernet connection as the backhaul, or a fully wireless extender, in which the 5GHz 802.11ac is used as the backhaul. In either configuration, the OWA0130 supports a dual-band, dual-concurrent 4x4 5GHz 802.11ac and a 2x2 2.4GHz 802.11n network to downstream clients. The OWA0130 also supports Technicolor’s cloud-based Wi-Fi monitoring solution, Wi-Fi Doctor, and is available now.
