Recently, the MediaAccess TG799vn v2 5GHz, a smart dual band concurrent wireless gateway with embedded DECT, was Technicolor’s first 5GHz Wi-Fi product to get official certification by the Wi-Fi Alliance.
For any device to become Wi-Fi CERTIFIED™, it needs to run through comprehensive testing in one of the Wi-Fi Alliance’s authorized test labs to prove its interoperability with other Wi-Fi devices.
To ensure that the MediaAccess TG799vn v2 5GHz would pass the tests first go, rigorous pre-testing and –certification was performed both in Technicolor’s and the ODM’s lab. Thanks to this thorough preparation process adopted by Technicolor R&D since several years, any failures in official Wi-Fi certifications are avoided.
Technicolor’s smart gateway was submitted for two major WFA certificates, i.e. 802.11n and WPS.
Worth mentioning here are the optional 802.11n certified features that it supports:
- 20/40MHz coexistence
- 2.4GHz and 5GHz concurrent operation
- SGi (Short Guard Time interval)
- STBC (space time block coding)
- WPA enterprise security mode
- 802.11h & 802.11d testing (5GHz radio only)
- AMPDU aggregation where the AP is the transmitter
- Ability to receive 3 spatial streams (5GHz radio only)
To conclude, the MediaAccess TG799vn v2 5GHz proves the perfect offload solution for seamless wireless connectivity in a digital world where the 802.11n 2.4GHz band is becoming more and more crowded, and the need for increased bandwidth never ceases to grow.
