Whole-home Wi-Fi system done right: superior performance, easy to deploy, real-time applications support, and broadest coverage.                                               

LAS VEGAS, January 5, 2017 – CES 2017  – Greenwave Systems, Inc. the global Internet of Things (IoT) software and managed services leader, and Quantenna Communications, Inc. (Nasdaq:QTNA), a leading provider of high-performance Wi-Fi® chipset solutions, today announced the industry’s first carrier-grade full-duplex Wi-Fi range extender for whole-home coverage. Quantenna’s superior Wi-Fi technology combines with Greenwave’s award-winning AXON Platform® in a design that’s ready for service providers looking to optimize the connected home experience and lead the market in Wi-Fi management.

“Today we join forces with Greenwave as we share a common passion for creating leading-edge Wi-Fi technology and products,” said Dr. Sam Heidari, Chairman and CEO at Quantenna. “Consumers expect their Wi-Fi coverage to deliver reliable connectivity for all client devices and our combined industry-leading technologies make it possible for service providers to meet those expectations.”

Greenwave’s AXON Platform offers seamless connectivity between IoT devices and services that not only lets “things” and services talk to each other, regardless of protocol, but also lets people converse with their apps, services and devices. The AXON Platform already powers millions of advanced networks through trusted service provider partners in telecom, cable and utilities, powering extended managed services for broadband, audio, video and energy management systems.

“We are pleased to partner with Quantenna to optimize home network performance,” said Martin Manniche, CEO of Greenwave Systems. “Its unique Wi-Fi technology, along with our carrier-grade implementation and extended managed services network solution, equips service providers with a flexible and scalable IoT platform and enables exceptional whole-home Wi-Fi coverage, all in one product.”

Utilizing Quantenna’s high performance Wi-Fi technology, the full duplex extender boasts three individual RF radios to efficiently handle real-time applications that demand fast throughput, such as simultaneous 4K HD video streaming, VOIP calls, VR gaming, fast downloads, and other applications. Certain areas in the home that were previously hard to reach can now benefit from reliable connection with up to 2x the performance of current solutions. In addition, Greenwave’s AXON Platform leverages Quantenna’s SONiQ implementation, its intelligent Self Optimizing Network software, to seamlessly manage repeaters and gateways as a unified system to achieve the most optimal Wi-Fi performance. SONiQ’s modular architecture can support all Wi-Fi chips and has flexibility to customize its algorithms for client roaming and band steering for system vendors, service providers or software integrators.

The AXON Platform takes advantage of SONiQ to help enable the best possible Quality-of-Experience, while balancing local and cloud network performance. Auto-configured for easy set-up, the AXON Platform navigates the provisioning, security and management that facilitates a no-touch experience, eliminating the need to send out a service technician or suffer complicated installations.
