[Computex 2019 – Taipei, Taiwan]: Celeno, a leading provider of smart, managed Wi-Fi solutions announced today that Acelink, a leading manufacturer of advanced network communication products, have selected the Celeno CL8000 Wi-Fi 6 chips to enable their next generation Wi-Fi access point and Wi-Fi router offerings.

Celeno’s Wi-Fi 6 products family is based on a disruptive silicon architecture that condenses two concurrent Wi-Fi 6 radios in a single package to a total support of 8T8R MIMO streams and an aggregated speed of 6Gbps with a single PCIe gen 3 interface. This architecture presents about 50% of real estate reduction compared to other solutions.

The products also combine the ElasticMIMO™ unique silicon architecture which is controlled by Celeno’s real time optimization software engine to dynamically allocate its eight radio chains between the two integrated Wi-Fi radios – in the 2.4GHz and 5GHz (and soon 6GHz) bands. This run time hardware elasticity is based on actual Wi-Fi usage needs, creating an elastic MIMO configuration ranging from 2x2 and up to 6x6 per each Wi-Fi band – helping to optimize and trade off range and throughputs per the actual Wi-Fi consumption patterns and achieving up to 100% increased performance compared to rigid 4x4 solutions.

The new Wi-Fi 6 solutions will introduce breakthrough capabilities to Acelink’s concurrent dual band Wi-Fi routers portfolio and ceiling-mounted access point products. Known for their sturdy design and technologies, Acelink’s new Wi-Fi 6 router will include the CL8080 with 8T8R driving 4x4 concurrent dual band with the option to drive up to 2x2+6x6 to optimize coverage and throughput per need. Acelink new access points will implement the CL8060 6T6R, driving 3x3 concurrent dual band with ElasticMIMO™ support of up to 2x2+4x4 to best balance coverage and capacity across multi-AP networks in SMB or home.

According to Jack Hung, General Manager of Acelink: “When looking for an advanced Wi-Fi 6 solution, Celeno’s CL8000 product family was the obvious choice. It will support our mission to deliver best performing home and SMB Wi-Fi products while meeting form factor, power and cost targets.

Mr. Hung continued to say: “By integrating the CL8000 chips into our access point products, we will enjoy a PCIe based, cost-effective architecture, condensing 8 transceivers into a single chip solution. The ability to dynamically change hardware MIMO configuration in the field will improve the Wi-Fi performance for varying needs, mix of clients and application types.

Mr. Ronen Peleg, Celeno VP Sales and Business Development added: “We are very proud and excited to work with Acelink on their next generation Wi-Fi 6 portfolio. With this announcement Celeno provides a complete portfolio of Wi-Fi 6 chips for Gateways, Routers, SMB access points and Extenders which will allow service providers and SMB’s to adopt the latest Wi-Fi generation and raise the bar on coverage, robustness and throughput capacity.”
