Adant  sMART-2  is a unique smart antenna system that provides reliable and fast WiFi at the right cost for the residential market. Key features are

  • Avoid complaints calls and truck rolls
  • Low cost
  • 30% faster speed
  • Set it and forget it

The system is available as a complete hardware and driver solution to integrate in WiFi routers and mesh nodes.

sMART-2 System architecture

The system is simple to integrate and composed of three main items

  • Multiband antennas
  • ICs for antenna pattern selection
  • Drivers for antenna pattern optimization

sMART-2 Multiband antennas and IC

Include PCB or metal stamp antennas properly embedded in the target router together with integrated circuites (ICs) mounted on the router main PCB that allow to select and combine the radiation patterns of the different radiating elements.

The antenna system allows achieving isotropic coverage for each RF chain of the router covering all in coverage typically left by passive antennas.

sMART-2 antenna drivers

Select the optimal antenna combination out of the N available to use at a given instance in time for all users connected and active on the network

Available as an application or as a module to compile together with WiFi drivers.

Main features are the followings:

  • Training TX/RX
    • antenna configuration is optimized in both TX and RX mode
  • Training with active packets
    • usage of null packets for training when needed to speed up training sequence
  • Support DBF, MU-MIMO and OFDMA transmission schemes
    • antenna configuration is selected to optimize performance also with DBF, MU-MIMO and OFDMA active
  • Adaptive training
    • frequency of training and configurations explored are adaptively changed depending on the environment/number of clients connected

sMART-2 Key Benefits

  • Improved throughput across the network
    • Every device enjoys on average 30% throughput increase at mid/low RSSI¬†with 10X peaks
  • Set it and forget it
    • Throughput is same for any orientation of the router and coverage is significantly enhanced for weak orientations of the router
sMART-2 Key Benefits - Set it and forget it -
  • Improved mesh
    • Create a stronger backhaul link to facilitate installation, reduce the number of nodes required to achieve full home coverage and enhance overall throughput for all clients connected
