Research Institution
MaXentric is offering a cost effective and an innovative solution for a V-band based WLAN (V-WLAN). Our V-WLAN solution was conceived in order to overcome the challenges of V-band WLAN development and deployment while preserving the technological legacies created by the existing WLAN systems. Our V-WLAN solution solves the LOS requirements at V-band frequencies by deploying a smart coaxial distribution system. Using spatial transmit and receiver diversity techniques, Our V-WLAN solution virtually eliminates any non-LOS issues associated with RF propagation at 60 GHz. Our V-WLAN solution offers an innovative architecture to distribute signals using a single coaxial cable for signal and power distribution with a built in fail-safe mode to bypass any antenna node failures. To preserve the unbeatable economies of scale and excellent technological legacies created by the existing WLAN standards (802.11 WLAN or 802.15 WPAN), our V-WLAN solution would use the existing 802.11 or 802.15 MAC and Physical Layers. In this way, our V-WLAN solution would maximize the use of Commercially Off The Shelf (COTS) 802.11 base-band chip sets.
