FierceWireless Names Quantenna as One of Its "Fierce 15" Wireless Companies of 2014

Quantenna announced today that it has been named to the annual FierceWireless “Fierce 15” list, designating it as one of the top privately-held wireless companies of the year. FierceWireless editors evaluated hundreds of organizations, and found Quantenna to be one of the most “fierce” startups in the wireless industry in 2014, and that the company has strong potential to grow in the years ahead.

FierceWireless, an internationally recognized daily email newsletter reaching more than 80,000 senior wireless industry executives, provides executives in over 100 countries with a quick, authoritative briefing on the day's top wireless stories, including new trends and technologies.

“Quantenna is developing silicon and software that can transmit Wi-Fi data faster, farther and more dependably,” said Phil Goldstein, editor of FierceWireless. “The company’s chipsets enable Wi-Fi with the same quality and reliability as wired Ethernet, delivering up to four HD video streams at more than 200 Mbps data rates. Industry giants like AT&T and DirecTV have validated the company’s technology, which will soon support speeds of up to 10 Gbps.”

Quantenna was the first to deliver 4x4 chipsets for the 802.11n and 802.11ac Wi-Fi standards, and the first to support MU-MIMO, an ingenious technology for transmitting data to multiple devices at once. With those innovations and others such as adaptive beamforming and channel monitoring and optimization, Quantenna’s Wi-Fi reaches farther and transmits faster and more reliably than any other. Continuing in this tradition of industry leadership, Quantenna is planning for the future with its latest 8x8 architecture with adaptive beamforming. Promising 10G performance and enhanced MU-MIMO capabilities, this technology is ideal for the next era of Wi-Fi usage.

“It is a great honor to be recognized by a wireless industry insights and analysis leader like FierceWireless,” said Dr. Sam Heidari, CEO of Quantenna. “We have been working industriously to develop new technologies that bring the best Wi-Fi possible to the home, enterprise and public spaces, as we foresee the tremendous demand on bigger bandwidth in the future. This recognition by FierceWireless validates our hard work.”

The FierceWireless “Fierce 15” celebrates the spirit of being “fierce,” championing innovation and creativity, even in the face of intense competition. The complete list of winning companies is available on the FierceWireless Web site at http://www.fiercewireless.com.

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Gordon Haff, Red Hat Technology Evangelist, shared examples from a wide range of industries – including en...
In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
Detecting internal user threats in the Big Data eco-system is challenging and cumbersome. Many organizations monitor internal usage of the Big Data eco-system using a set of alerts. This is not a scalable process given the increase in the number of alerts with the accelerating growth in data volume and user base. Organizations are increasingly leveraging machine learning to monitor only those data elements that are sensitive and critical, autonomously establish monitoring policies, and to detect...
