Qualcomm is getting ready to bring two 802.11ax SoCs to market. The IPQ8074 SoC is designed for access points and routers, with a peak theoretical throughput of 4.8Gbps across eight 5GHz streams and four 2.4GHz streams. They’ve also got a client side SoC capable of 1.775Gbps across two streams. While not the first to announced a router SoC for 801.11ax, they’re the first I’ve seen presenting a client side option.
On April 8, 2010, the Gestalt IT Tech Field Day Boston delegates visited the offices of VKernel. This discussion covered the company’s capacity and performance optimization technology and Optimization Pack, Capacity Analyzer, and Chargeback products. VKernel even invited a customer to talk about his use of their product. The session culminated with a roundtable discussion of the company, products, and market.
