Quantenna Communications Selected as a 2013 Red Herring Top 100 Global

22 December 2013

Red Herring announced its Top 100 Global in recognition of the leading private companies from North America, Europe, and Asia today, celebrating these startups’ innovations and technologies across their respective industries.

Red Herring’s Top 100 Global list has become a mark of distinction for identifying promising new companies and entrepreneurs. Red Herring editors were among the first to recognize that companies such as Facebook, Twitter, Google, Yahoo, Skype, Salesforce.com, YouTube, and eBay would change the way we live and work.

“Choosing the companies with the strongest potential was by no means a small feat,” said Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO of Red Herring. “After rigorous contemplation and discussion, we narrowed our list down from hundreds of candidates from across the globe to the Top 100 Winners. We believe Quantenna Communications embodies the vision, drive and innovation that define a successful entrepreneurial venture. Quantenna Communications should be proud of its accomplishment, as the competition was the strongest it has ever been.”

“Quantenna is pleased to accept this Red Herring Global 100 award for our innovation in consumer Wi-Fi technology,” said Dr. Sam Heidari, CEO, Quantenna. “Since our founding in 2006, Quantenna has consistently delivered the highest performing Wi-Fi chipset solutions, and was previously named Red Herring 100 North America Award Winner three times. We are consistently redefining the possibilities of wireless in the home, and are proud to say that nothing comes close to delivering the level of performance, quality and cost effectiveness that we have achieved in our new wave 2 MU-MIMO 802.11ac chipset.”

The QSR1000 combines Quantenna’s industry-first 4x4 architecture with MU-MIMO technology, dynamic-digital beamforming and support for four spatial streams to deliver unsurpassed performance, range, reliability and coverage. The only wave 2 802.11ac chipset, Quantenna’s 1.7Gbps QSR1000 technology transmits faster, reaches farther and serves more devices more reliably than any other Wi-Fi solution ever created. This makes Quantenna’s 802.11ac solution ideally suited to simultaneously and flawlessly stream multimedia-rich content to multiple devices demanding wire-like quality — including everything from IPTV to full 1080p and 4K Ultra HD.

Red Herring’s editorial staff evaluated the companies on both quantitative and qualitative criteria, such as financial performance, technology innovation, management quality, strategy, and market penetration. This assessment of potential is complemented by a review of the track records and standing of startups relative to their peers, allowing Red Herring to see past the “buzz” and make the list a valuable instrument of discovery and advocacy for the most promising new business models from around the world.
