    Qualcomm Technologies has announced its Video-Over-Mesh end-to-end video over wireless (VoW) solution that optimizes the delivery of video over mesh networks.

    The feature set is aimed at enabling broadband carriers to produce whole-home Wi-Fi systems, with a specific eye toward providing glitch-free video with less than 40 ms of latency and "near lossless video delivery in high path loss conditions".

    The solution is said to enable "multiple HD and UHD video streams to run simultaneously". It can be used with Qualcomm's Wave-2 802.11ac chipset portfolio.

    The announcement said the company is working with OEM's Acelink, Alpha Networks, Askey, Hitron, Technicolor and WNC "to develop carrier mesh solutions based on the Qualcomm Mesh Networking Platform, which will be introduced to consumers in 2018".

    Also revealed is a partnership with Plume Design to develop two "turn-key Wi-Fi hardware reference designs". Qualcomm said Plume's cloud backend is based on its Mesh Networking platform. In June, Comcast participated in a third round of financing and took a seat on Plume's board.

    Qualcomm's announcement follows yesterday's announcement by Quantenna of a three-radio 4x4 802.11ax based chipset that is also aimed at carriers.
