MaxLinear, a provider of radio frequency (RF), analog and mixed-signal integrated circuits for the connected home, wired and wireless infrastructure, and industrial and multimarket applications, today announced that TRIAX, a global supplier of products and solutions for the reception and distribution of video, audio and data signals, has selected MaxLinear G.hn Wave-2 chipsets to enable a new family of enterprise-grade Wi-Fi networking products targeted at hotels, housing associations and small businesses whose networking infrastructure is based on coaxial cable.
The TRIAX Ethernet over Coax + Wi-Fi solution is composed of several products:
The TRIAX Ethernet over Coax + Wi-Fi solution provides several benefits:
All the products in the TRIAX Ethernet over Coax + Wi-Fi solution are powered by MaxLinear’s G.hn Wave-2 chipset, which is composed of the 88LX5153 baseband processor and the 88LX2730 analog front-end.
The chipset supports key features like TDMA Medium Access Control, which guarantees predictable latency for gaming, video and VoIP, and LDPC Forward Error Correction, which provides error-free 4K IPTV delivery over legacy coaxial cables up to 1000 meters.
“Installing new Ethernet cables is one of the major costs associated with deploying new Wi-Fi networks in enterprise environments. This is especially problematic in hotels, where rewiring has an additional impact on revenue due to the need to close down certain rooms to avoid disrupting guests,” said Peter Lyhne Uhrenholt, TRIAX CEO. “MaxLinear G.hn technology allows us to unleash the full potential of existing coaxial cables without affecting the quality of TV signals, ensuring the same data rates as wired Ethernet infrastructure and no disruptions to rooms or services.”
“Our G.hn products have the flexibility to be used in a wide range of applications, including home-networking, broadband access, industrial, security and IoT. The Ethernet over Coax + Wi-Fi solution developed by TRIAX is a great example of using G.hn technology in the Enterprise market, with a product line specifically targeted to the hospitality segment,” said Will Torgerson, MaxLinear Vice President & General Manager of the Broadband Group.
