Qualcomm StreamBoost™: Faster, Smarter Networks for the Connected Home
StreamBoost makes the most of a home’s broadband connection as people use more devices and more online media applications. Intelligent traffic management and an easy-to-use interface provide consumers with unprecedented performance and control over their home networks. For service providers, a better experience means fewer support calls.
StreamBoost identifies traffic on the home network and prioritizes each stream for maximum efficiency – giving all streams the priority and bandwidth required to ensure the best possible performance for everyone on the network. More powerful and easier to use than traditional Quality-of-Service, StreamBoost automatically prioritizes by application, without user intervention. Automatic, cloud-based updates for StreamBoost-powered routers ensure that the router grows with the home network; as more devices and applications are introduced, StreamBoost develops new policies and priorities.
Qualcomm Atheros’ 3-stream solutions are optimized for extraordinarily high-performance video-over-wireless, eliminating packet loss for latency and glitch-free transmissions, to seamlessly deliver service provider content with Qualcomm Atheros-enabled gateways.
