Metalink Ltd. announces the second generation of its WLANPlus chip-set. Designed to enable high-throughput, rich-content, quality-critical applications, WLANPlus provides the foundation for a robust, full-coverage wireless home entertainment network. The WLANPlus 802.11n chip-set family is optimized to go beyond previous solutions that are designed primarily to transport data, and addresses the far more rigorous needs of the consumer electronics market. It supports optional specifications of the 802.11n standard with functionality that is critical for the streaming of high-quality High-Definition Television (HDTV) video throughout the home (three MPEG2 HDTV streams at 60 Mb/s with whole-home coverage at 60 feet). The chipset supports both 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz.
