Quantenna Communications, Inc., the leader in ultrareliable Wi-Fi video networking for whole-home entertainment, announced today that Swisscom started deploying to its broadband customers in Switzerland a new Quantenna based WLAN product: Magic-Box which is a dual concurrent dual band router. The product features Quantenna award winning 4x4 802.11n MIMO technology. It enables reliable wireless streaming of video content throughout the home to multiple TVs as well as to tablets and smart phones.
Swisscom and Quantenna enjoy a longtime development partnership. In 2010, Swisscom was the first service provider to deploy wireless whole-home coverage at very high data rates, which is mandatory for services and applications such as HDTV. The new Magic-Box router is an open access point that interoperates with third party clients such as tablets and smart phones.
“Swisscom has been deploying multiple generations of Quantenna based products which deliver the best carrier grade performance. We are also collaborating in the future with Quantenna to bring to market their next generation products bringing superior performance for unique carrier grade video features. Swisscom is constantly innovating and bringing leading edge technologies to their customer,” said Andreas Martschitsch, head of home network at Swisscom.
Quantenna standard-based 802.11n and 802.11ac Wi-Fi products solve today’s home networking challenges, of delivering ultra-reliable, high-speed wireless coverage throughout the whole home. This enables service providers to save millions on deploying multi-room DVR for pay TV services. Only Quantenna has the Wi-Fi video grade performance architecture to deliver a wired like user experience over wireless networks in the most demanding environments.
“We are excited to be bringing carrier grade performance to the open access point that reliably interoperates with clients such as tablets and smart phones” said Dr. Sam Heidari, CEO at Quantenna. “We are pleased to extend the long-term partnership with Swisscom that brought innovative 'world first' carrier grade wireless products to the market. Quantenna solutions are enabling service providers to open their network to consumer devices without sacrificing the quality of their pay-tv video service. Quantenna added features allow the efficient use of the bandwidth while always protecting the quality of the pay video that service providers offer. Our relationship with Swisscom is an exemplary partnership with strong ties and common vision, and we look forward to further this partnership with our 802.11ac chipset”.

With so much going on in this space you could be forgiven for thinking you were always working with yesterday’s technologies. So much change, so quickly. What do you do if you have to build a solution from the ground up that is expected to live in the field for at least 5-10 years? This is the challenge we faced when we looked to refresh our existing 10-year-old custom hardware stack to measure the fullness of trash cans and compactors.

I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course). However as I started to pull these blogs together, I realized that my IOT discussion lacked a vision; it lacked an end point towards which an organization could drive their IOT envisioning, proof of value, app dev, data engineering and data science efforts. And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…

Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...

Qosmos has announced new milestones in the detection of encrypted traffic and in protocol signature coverage. Qosmos latest software can accurately classify traffic encrypted with SSL/TLS (e.g., Google, Facebook, WhatsApp), P2P traffic (e.g., BitTorrent, MuTorrent, Vuze), and Skype, while preserving the privacy of communication content. These new classification techniques mean that traffic optimization, policy enforcement, and user experience are largely unaffected by encryption. In respect wit...
