Agere Systems has introduced its latest WaveLAN 802.11a/b/g multimode chipset, delivering up to 150Mbps data throughput speeds for wireless networking products. This turbo mode capability developed using standards-based QoS techniques and other software enhancements, is expected to give retail and PC OEMs the highest performing multimode solution on the market, enabling seamless connectivity and broad compatibility.

The company's WaveLAN multimode chipset provides up to twice the range of competing solutions at peak data rates - as well as higher throughput when combined with software enhancements - to deliver reliable, high-speed connections. Agere's advanced acceleration techniques build on this strong foundation and, by employing mechanisms anticipated in the IEEE 802.11e QoS standard, ensure the maximum interoperability with millions of Wi-Fi products being deployed globally.

Ramping to production this month, Agere's WaveLAN multimode chipset consists of a single-chip, dual-band 2.4/5.2 GHz RF transceiver media access controller (MAC), baseband processor and power amplifier. The acceleration software will be implemented as a technology overlay to the WaveLAN chipset in the third quarter of 2004.
