The platform will incorporate the Peraso W130 802.11ad, 16-element phased array chipset. In addition to increased capacity, the 60 GHz band brings greenfield spectrum that is virtually interference free, in contrast to the existing 2.4/5 GHz bands, which have become saturated, and do not provide a reliable channel of communication. The paltform will be demoinstarted at CES 2019.
"The introduction of the EVK-W130-AP4 networking platform ushers in a new era of performance and reliability in the residential networking market", explains Bill McLean, President and CEO of Peraso. "For example, in China, our access point customers are telling us that the 2.4 and 5 GHz bands are fundamentally saturated. Customers are looking for an alternative solution."
