      Quantenna Communications and Canal+ have announced a partnership on Canal+’s two new platforms, the G9 and G9-mini, based on Quantenna’s QSR1000 and QSR2000 chipsets. The newly announced Canal+ satellite Set-Top Box (STB) G9 integrates Quantenna’s QSR1000-based 802.11ac 4×4 solution to redistribute HD video to its companion G9-mini wireless Over-The-Top (OTT) STB. The G9-mini integrates Quantenna’s 2×4 dual-band 802.11ac/11n QSR2000 chipset for a complete Quantenna-based in-home wireless distribution system.

      With this combination of Quantenna chipsets, Canal+ aims to improve 4K wireless video distribution and in-home Wi-Fi performance.

      “Wi-Fi has become the primary medium to deliver high quality video services to multiple devices simultaneously throughout the home. Having a reliable, high capacity Wi-Fi network is crucial for customers.” said Philippe Rivas, CTO Distribution at Canal+.
