Wi-Fi Access Point SoC Complies With 802.11ax

Broadcom is shipping its BCM43684 Max Wi-Fi 802.11ax SoC, deemed the first in the industry to be fully compliant with the IEEE 802.11ax specification and the upcoming 802.11ax certification. Designed for the residential Wi-Fi market, Max WiFi chips are being deployed by NETGEAR in its Nighthawk product line.

 

Max WiFi is the sixth generation of Wi-Fi and supports the delivery of simultaneous video, voice, data, and IoT services to a wide range of wireless devices in the home. Reportedly, Max WiFi chips provide up to four times faster download speeds, six times faster upload speeds, and with four times better coverage than previous 802.11ac Wi-Fi technology.
