MaxLinear G.hn Technology Selected by TRIAX to Power its New Enterprise-Grade Wi-Fi Solution

MaxLinear G.hn Technology Selected by TRIAX to Power its New Enterprise-Grade Wi-Fi Solution

G.hn technology enables TRIAX customers to simplify installation of enterprise Wi-Fi networks by leveraging existing coaxial cable infrastructure, reducing deployment costs and avoiding service disruptions.

AMSTERDAM – IBC 2018 – Sept. 15, 2018 – MaxLinear, Inc. (NYSE:MXL), a leading provider of radio frequency (RF), analog and mixed-signal integrated circuits for the connected home, wired and wireless infrastructure, and industrial and multimarket applications, today announced that TRIAX, a global supplier of reliable, innovative products and solutions for the reception and distribution of video, audio and data signals, has selected MaxLinear G.hn Wave-2 chipsets to enable a new family of enterprise-grade Wi-Fi networking products targeted at hotels, housing associations and small businesses whose networking infrastructure is based on coaxial cable.

The TRIAX Ethernet over Coax + Wi-Fi solution is composed of several products:

  • The TRIAX EoC Pro End Point is a compact Wi-Fi 802.11ac Wave-2 access point that uses a G.hn coaxial connection as backhaul, with data rates up to 2 Gbps. The EoC Pro End Point includes a passthrough coaxial port for TV signals. The device also provides a Gigabit Ethernet port that can be used to connect other devices such as Ethernet switches, IP set-top boxes, TVs, desktop computers or IoT devices.
  • The TRIAX EoC Controller (64/4) is a G.hn network controller that can manage up to 64 access points, acting as a layer-2 switch for Ethernet and integrating both TV and data signals on the same cable.
  • The TRIAX EoC Controller (32/2) is a smaller version of the G.hn network controller that can handle up to 32 access points, optimized for small businesses and hotels.

The TRIAX Ethernet over Coax + Wi-Fi solution provides several benefits:

  • Faster Wi-Fi service with no network dead spots that can be installed in hours, with no guest disruption
  • TV signals and internet service share the same coaxial cable with no interference
  • There is no need to retune existing TVs
  • The network is ready for IPTV upgrades
  • Premium Wi-Fi service can be upsold to guests or visitors

All the products in the TRIAX Ethernet over Coax + Wi-Fi solution are powered by MaxLinear’s G.hn Wave-2 chipset, which is composed of the 88LX5153 baseband processor and the 88LX2730 analog front-end.

The chipset supports key features like TDMA Medium Access Control, which guarantees predictable latency for gaming, video and VoIP, and LDPC Forward Error Correction, which provides error-free 4K IPTV delivery over legacy coaxial cables up to 1000 meters.

“Installing new Ethernet cables is one of the major costs associated with deploying new Wi-Fi networks in enterprise environments. This is especially problematic in hotels, where rewiring has an additional impact on revenue due to the need to close down certain rooms to avoid disrupting guests,” said Peter Lyhne Uhrenholt, TRIAX CEO. “MaxLinear G.hn technology allows us to unleash the full potential of existing coaxial cables without affecting the quality of TV signals, ensuring the same data rates as wired Ethernet infrastructure and no disruptions to rooms or services.”

“Our G.hn products have the flexibility to be used in a wide range of applications, including home-networking, broadband access, industrial, security and IoT. The Ethernet over Coax + Wi-Fi solution developed by TRIAX is a great example of using G.hn technology in the Enterprise market, with a product line specifically targeted to the hospitality segment,” said Will Torgerson, MaxLinear Vice President & General Manager of the Broadband Group.

The TRIAX Ethernet over Coax + Wi-Fi is available for sale today. Customers interested in attending a demonstration can visit the MaxLinear booth at IBC (Hall 15 MS28) in Amsterdam, from September 14thto 19th. More information about the TRIAX Ethernet over Coax + Wi-Fi can be found at http://www.triax.com/Wi-Fi.
