Qualcomm Inc. has revealed that its subsidiary, Qualcomm Atheros Inc., unveiled StreamBoost technology for Wi-Fi routers and gateways. According to the company, StreamBoost gives each device and each application the bandwidth it needs to ensure the best possible experiences in the connected home.

While the new 802.11ac standard was designed to address increasingly crowded networks, StreamBoost technology combined with 802.11ac takes networking to the next level. While Qualcomm VIVE 802.11ac provides up to 1.3Gb/s PHY rate of Wi-Fi capacity, Qualcomm StreamBoost claims to provide a superior connected experience to users of all devices on a home network by managing and shaping traffic, and giving each connected device and application the priority and bandwidth required for optimal performance.

Qualcomm StreamBoost also incorporates an opt-in, cloud-based service that continually increases the intelligence of the router, allowing new applications and devices to be identified and optimally managed as they are added to a network. StreamBoost's interface makes understanding and using routers more intuitive than ever before. For the first time, users can view all computers, tablets, phones and other connected devices on the home's networkas well as the applications they are using, and the real-time bandwidth usage of each application and deviceon one easy-to-use StreamBoost interface, added the company.
