AirTies launches 802.11ac wireless bridge

Video technology provider AirTies Wireless Networks has launched an 802.11ac wireless bridge solution that it says can enable the streaming of up to six HD channels wirelessly throughout the home.

AirTies says that the Air 4820 range of products are the first 4×4 chipset video bridges to support the new 802.11ac wireless standard, delivering up to 1.7Gbps of bandwidth throughout the home. The products use the 4X4 MIMO Quantenna chipset and operate in the 5GHz frequency band to avoid interference and expand the field of delivery by utilising advanced dynamic digital beamforming along with channel management, according to AirTies.

Bülent Celebi, chairman and co-founder of AirTies, said: “With the proliferation of devices, such as mobile phones and tablet devices, continuing to grow we are seeing a demand from operators for solutions that are able to provide greater bandwidth but with low power consumption as consumers connect more devices in the home. With the emergence of the 802.11ac technology in our solutions, we are now able to offer a solution that overcomes the need for greater bandwidth capacity but still deliver seamless high quality HD content.”
