Life is bigger and faster these days - 4k movies and fast-action gaming on smartphones and smart TVs. The meteoric rise of connected devices and digital content is putting pressure on wireless networks. Qualcomm VIVE, a product of Qualcomm Atheros, Inc., delivers faster Wi-Fi so all of your devices can live large. It's Wi with a lot more Fi.
Multi-user MIMO is a revolutionary technology that will make Wi-Fi networks more efficient than ever before, to support the growing number of connected devices in the home, enterprise and hotspots.
Want more powerful Wi-Fi for your video streams, music downloads and online games? VIVE uses the new 802.11ac standard, which is 3x faster than previous Wi-Fi technologies. Even better, VIVE offers StreamBoost, a product of Qualcomm Atheros, Inc., to intelligently manage all of your online apps to deliver the rich experiences that people demand from their connected devices.
VIVE consumes up to 6x less power than previous Wi-Fi technologies, to extend mobile battery life and reduce the energy impact of always-on networking gear. And saving energy is something that everyone can feel good about.
With more products crowding the wireless spectrum, VIVE uses wider channels in the 5 GHz band to transmit faster with less interference – even in the busiest places. VIVE offers superior channel agility to maintain maximum speeds between 802.11ac devices, while using narrower channels for legacy 802.11n devices.
