The product family comprises the GRG-4281; a GPON (Gigabit Passive Optical Network) dual-band gateway, and the WAP-5945; a wireless access point/extender. Both products are enabled by ON Semiconductor’s unique 5x5 MIMO (Multi-Input and Multi-Output) QSR5G-AX Plus chipsets, which offer the latest Wi-Fi 6 features to deliver superior speed, range, efficiency, security and reliability to the connected home.
The adoption of Wi-Fi 6 is underway and is expected to propagate rapidly. Modern bandwidth-intensive applications continue to drive the demand for high performance in-home Wi-Fi coverage. Service providers require Wi-Fi 6-ready customer premise equipment in anticipation of the next generation of client devices.
Both GRG-4281 and WAP-5945 feature ergonomic designs in small form factors. The GRG-4281 operates in dual-band dual-concurrent (DBDC) 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands, with a peak PHY rate of 5.4 Gbps. The integrated access device also supports VoIP and remote management utilities, such as TR-069, for network provision and maintenance. The WAP-5945 is a compact yet robust extender that provides superior performance for bandwidth demanding applications such as 4K video streaming, online gaming or cloud synchronization. Through a simple addition it can also establish a Mesh network to further boost Wi-Fi coverage and performance.
With integrated DBDC functionality in one chipset, the QSR5G-AX Plus ensures the best overall Wi-Fi performance. It is packed with key Wi-Fi 6 features, such as orthogonal frequency-division multiple access (OFDMA), and enables high data transmission rates, less interference and improved performance with multiple users. Advanced MU-MIMO (Multi-User, Multi-Input, Multi-Output) capability allows more efficient use of available bandwidth on a single network. In addition, the SmartScan with zero wait DFS (Dynamic Frequency Selection) offers superior 5 GHz spectrum utilization and maximum performance in dense environments.
The GRG-4281 and WAP-5945 are currently available for sampling.
