Intelligraphics newest IGX98 series Windows Drivers were created for the growing number of devices and bandwidth-intensive multimedia applications placing greater demands on wireless networks offering 802.11ac performance and coverage to enable 3X3 MIMO Technology & up to 1.3Gbps speeds on todays crowded networks. The IGX98 Windows driver family targets mobile, home and office networking, including smartphones, tablets, PCs, laptops, televisions, home routers, gateways and enterprise access points and offers easy migration from 802.11n to 802.11ac.
IGX98 Windows Drivers were developed for:
• QCA9880 3×3 and QCA9882 2×2 chips for 802.11ac/a/b/g/n home networking
• QCA9890 3×3 and QCA9892 2×2 chips for 802.11ac/a/b/g/n enterprise networking, with enhanced in-building location and spectral sensing capabilities
Featuring MIMO, SU Mimo and MU MIMO
These wireless standards work to alleviate the traditional wireless bottleneck, the ability to only send or receive packets from one device at a time. With SU-MIMO, a single device can now both send AND receive packets at a time, with MU-MIMO being able to send and receive data from multiple devices at a time, effectively working to cut down on the waitlist to send data to devices requesting data on a network
The Developers Advantage
IGX98 Windows Drivers enable hardware manufacturers to develop devices specifically designed to meet the widest range of needs, built using industry standards and compatible with existing technologies.
For Automated Manufacturing Solutions for Industry 4.0
Increase efficiency and gain greater insight into Plant conditions, supply chain, and product quality with automated solutions
MRI and Ultrasound machines can easily connect to secure data servers allowing doctors to monitor test results from remote locations.
For The Home
Wi-Fi routers and devices can simultaneously transmit or receive multiple streams of data between each other, increasing the speed of the connection and the efficiency of the network.
