Antcor Announces Multi Mode Extension of Proteus Wi-Fi
SAN JOSE, California, June 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ –
Proteus is the only Wi-Fi IP that truly leverages the capabilities of programmable
Antcor, S.A. an industry pioneer of 802.11 Intellectual Property, today introduces the
Multi Mode Extension (MME) of Proteus.
Proteus is the only Wi-Fi IP available in the global market that supports up to 4×4
MIMO and speeds up to 1.7 Gbps, enabling the next generation Wi-Fi access points, home
gateways and Small cells. Implemented primarily in DSP-software and with minimal hardware
acceleration, the Proteus offers a unique combination of performance, flexibility, and
Traditionally Wi-Fi semiconductor solutions are implemented as hardwired and
inflexible designs. This means that the “use cases” and applications to be served are
fixed and predefined from the early stages of the system design.
MME technology enables the dynamic software configuration of Proteus core to operate
either as a single 4×4 802.11ac or as multiple simultaneous wireless Access Points of 3×3,
2×2 and 1×1, accelerating time to market and expanding addressable markets with a single
System On Chip (SoC) design.
Mr. Lazaros Kapsias, President and CTO of Antcor, commented: “Until now, the
programmable approach was focusing on combining different communication and connectivity
standards in a single platform. With the MME technology Antcor introduces today we unfold
the merits of a programmable architecture in the Wi-Fi standard alone.”
With MME technology, the different possible configurations that can be configured on
the fly expand significantly the addressable market and use cases, bringing additional
benefits to Proteus licensees.
Mr. Costas Meimetis, CEO of Antcor, commented: “The adoption of our Proteus solution
is overwhelming as we are counting key-customers, just a few months after its official
release earlier this year. Our licensees are coming from different market segments ranging
from high-end Small-Cell to low-power Machine to Machine (M2M) applications. We strongly
believe that Proteus-MME technology will enable our customers to address a variety of
markets with the minimum investment.”
