CL2430 Small CL2430 802.11ac Wave 2 3x3 Single Chip

The CL2430 is a future-ready, powerful, highly integrated, 3x3 802.11ac wave 2 single chip supporting MU-MIMO combined with Celeno’s Airtime Management to deliver the highest throughput-coverage performance required for the future wireless networks. The CL2430 integrates both a CPU and memory to run more of the wireless LAN functions on-chip, delivering a strong host offloading solution with no need for costly external memories.

The CL2430 is embedded with Celeno’s feature rich OptimizAIR 2.0 suite, including both implicit and explicit beamforming enabling the delivery of the highest levels of performance and reliability anytime and under any circumstances while ensuring superlative QoS. The suite includes Celeno’s breakthrough Wi-Fi virtualization based upon airtime management technology, enabling the dynamic provisioning and enforcement of airtime capacity per Wi-Fi network (SSID) and per client.

Delivering these capabilities in a single, high-performance 802.11ac wave2 solution, along with advanced spectrum management capabilities, the CL2430 ups the ante for wireless performance and range. It is the ideal choice for high performance set-top- boxes, service provider gateways, home routers, enterprise access points, , delivering data-intensive streaming multimedia applications to the connected home.
