Conexant Systems Inc. announced that its IEEE 802.11a/b/g dual-band PRISM WorldRadio MiniPCI module reference design has achieved Wi-Fi certification for WMM (Wi-Fi multimedia) and WPA2 (Wi-Fi Protected Access 2).

WMM provides superior quality-of-service (QoS) features for wireless multimedia applications by prioritizing network audio, video and data traffic and decreasing latency. WPA2 is based on the IEEE 802.11i standard and leverages advance encryption standard (AES) technology to offer the highest level of security for Wi-Fi products.

"Security and quality-of-service continue to be essential components of wireless data in both home and enterprise markets," said Larry Ciaccia, VP and general manager for Conexant's wireless data and networking components products business. "Our continued support of these important standards enables our customers to provide competitive WLAN solutions for home, enterprise and consumer electronics markets."

All of Conexant's 802.11b/g and 802.11a/b/g client and access point reference designs include hardware acceleration, which enables the company to provide WPA2 functionality to its customers in the form of a software upgrade. The IEEE 802.11a/b/g dual-band PRISM WorldRadio is the first of Conexant's wide portfolio of PRISM WLAN reference designs to receive this certification. The company's family of PRISM WLAN reference designs is based on a common software architecture, which will facilitate WMM and WPA2 certification for other Conexant products.
