High Performance 2x2 802.11ac Wave 2 Single Chip Optimized for Dense Environments
The CL2420 is a future-ready, powerful, highly integrated, 2x2 802.11ac wave 2 single chip implementing full 802.11ac Wave 2 functionality including MU-MIMO, 160MHz channel support, beamforming and 2 Spatial Streams. The CL2420 integrates both a CPU and memory to run more of the wireless LAN functions on-chip, delivering a strong host offloading solution with no need for costly external memories. Employing new MAC and PHY improvements to perfect throughput in dense environments, the CL2420 significantly raises the bar on Wi-Fi performance. range and reliability.
The CL2420 integrates above standard value-add functionalities based on Celeno’s embedded and edge software technologies. These include:
- Argus in-silicon RF and DSP-based spectrum analyzer and intelligence engine that seamlessly scans spectrum without interrupting service and without the need for additional RBOM costs
- Smart Antenna Steering (SAS) to enhance performance and coverage in different environments and at different ranges, both horizontally and vertically
- OptimizAIR™ technology enabling provisioning, enforcement and dynamic allocation of Wi-Fi resources per multiple virtual network (SSID), per service, per device and per traffic direction all serve by the same Wi-Fi access point
- ControlAIR™ smart multi-AP Wi-Fi controller software enabling harmonious and synchronized co-existence among multiple AP deployments
