Broadcom To Release New 802.11ac Chips for Enterprise and Wireless Cloud Networks


Later this year Broadcom plans to launch the BCM43460, the world's first 5G WiFi system-on-chip (SoC) designed to address demand for Gigabit speeds in enterprise, wireless cloud networks and carrier access.

Based on the new IEEE 802.11ac standard, the BCM43460 system-on-chip (SoC) is 3x faster and 6x more power efficient than previous generation 802.11n solutions and is interoperable with legacy 802.11 technologies.

"Enterprise networks are on the cusp of a new mobile computing era in which tablets and smartphones will be ubiquitous in the workplace," said Rajiv Ramaswami, executive vice president and general manager of Broadcom's Infrastructure and Networking Group. "Broadcom is at the forefront of developing the latest wireless technologies for the enterprise, delivering the connectivity capabilities needed to meet the growing demands of an unwired workforce."

Increased reliance on wireless networks, the explosion of video consumption and growing number of wireless devices are all putting tremendous stress on legacy 802.11a/b/g/n networks. 5G WiFi addresses these challenges, allowing mobile device users to stream digital content between devices faster, and simultaneously connect more wireless devices to home and enterprise networks, while conserving battery power.

Key Features

The 2.4/5 GHz single-chip MAC/PHY/Radio BCM43460 is aimed at Enterprise and Carrier class access points, branch office routers and business class integrated services routers. New features such as Broadcom's explicit and implicit transmit beam-forming technology extends the range, coverage and network efficiency of Enterprise wireless networks, particularly in single antenna devices such as smartphones.

Advanced spectrum analysis features combine in-depth RF analysis with real-time WLAN information for real-time trouble­shooting of performance problems. This feature is critical to Enterprise operators for deep monitoring of interference in the network, resulting in more reliable wireless service. Security is provided by industry standardized system support for WPA, WPA2, hardware accelerated AES encryption/decryption TKIP and IEEE 802.1X.

Broadcom's integrated FASTPATH Unified Wireless Switching (UWS) and Unified Access Point (UAP) software with 5G WiFi device delivers a fully integrated solution for wireless LAN controllers, unified switches and access points. By combining its wireless LAN (WLAN) silicon, switch silicon and networking software, Broadcom provides a complete platform for OEMs to deliver a unified wireless network solution.

Broadcom is now sampling the BCM43460 and plans to produce it in the second half of 2012.
