ADANT Technologies Inc., the industry leader in smart antenna technology, today announced that its high performance STARV1 internal antennas are part of ZyXEL’s next generation WAC6503D-S and WAC6502D-S 3×3 and 2×2 802.11ac Wi-Fi Dual-Band Enterprise Class Access Points.
Pleasanton, CA, April 24, 2015 –(PR.com)– ADANT Technologies Inc., the industry leader in smart antenna technology, today announced that its high performance STARV1 internal antennas are part of ZyXEL’s next generation WAC6503D-S and WAC6502D-S 3×3 and 2×2 802.11ac Wi-Fi Dual-Band Enterprise Class Access Points.
ADANT has developed a new breed of Smart Antenna solution based on its patented “Beam Shaping” technology which combines electrically re-configurable pattern and polarization antenna hardware with an advanced, ultra-fast selection software algorithm that selects in a few milliseconds the optimal antenna radiation configuration for maximum signal strength and diversity amongst several thousand possible different combinations.
“ZyXEL’s Smart Antenna technology which incorporates the Adant StarV1 antenna system is a groundbreaking feature of the WAC6500 Series of wireless APs that solves the coverage problem by adaptively adjusting antenna patterns to fit a variety of wireless environments. The WAC6500 AP’s industry-leading RF output power and sensitivity combine with the smart antenna system to offer greater coverage and performance over traditional networks, making ZyXEL’s WAC6500 Series the ultimate 802.11ac one-to-one AP upgrade choice,” stated Crowley Wu Assistant VP at ZyXEL’s Networking BU.
“The advent of the 802.11AC Wi-Fi standard came with the promise of gigabit level performance, and much improved throughput and range. With the rapid proliferation of 802.11AC devices, the industry quickly realized how antenna performance and wireless channel optimization was crucial to deliver on these expectations. This is particularly true in hard to reach locations, and with interference that is typical of crowded 5GHz wireless networks with a small number of wider channels. Adant’s enterprise level Smart Antenna solution with software algorithms for throughput maximization and interference mitigation are fully integrated with market leading 802.11AC chipsets and are proven to double the throughput performance and significantly improve network capacity and range,” stated Dave Tarpley, Adant’s President and CEO. “We are the only commercial provider of complete Smart Antenna solutions for wireless networking, and we are excited to be working with ZyXEL to deliver the best performing enterprise level Access Point products on the market today.”
Adant Technologies Inc. designs and manufactures adaptive wireless systems using its unique Beamshaping™ “smart antenna technology” to provide significantly better wireless connectivity. Adant can create many different radiation patterns (i.e. directional beams) as well as an omni-directional radiation pattern. These beams are then adaptively controlled by software to continuously select the beam that maximizes the wireless link between transmitting and receiving radios. Today, Adant’s wireless systems are fully integrated with the largest 802.11ac Wi-Fi chipset providers (Qualcomm Atheros and Broadcom). Adant’s wireless systems provide significantly better WiFi connectivity between an access point and a client , resulting in faster data rates and greater coverage in hard to reach areas—all of which means a more stable Wi-Fi link and an overall more reliable Wi-Fi experience.
