88W9064

Capacity and coverage for high efficiency wireless platforms

88W9064/88W9064S Family

The 88W9064 family is part of the next evolution of our industry-leading Wi-Fi access solutions that have enabled award-winning platforms. This device family provides the most complete 802.11ax feature set. Drawing on the strength of our proven implicit and explicit beamforming technologies, our full MU-MIMO and OFDMA solutions help increase capacity not only for downlink traffic but also for uplink traffic. This allows for overall improved network utilization while meeting the growing demands of user applications.

Other attributes of the 88W9064 family include integrated Bluetooth® 5 and precision device location provides accurate positioning within 1 meter and 10 degrees. BT5 supports classic Bluetooth and Bluetooth low energy with features like long range and direction finding using angle of arrival (AoA) and angle of departure (AoD). The added Bluetooth capability can be leveraged to provide a more cost-effective and complete solution for users’ connectivity needs.
