Pace to add Wi-Fi technology to boxes


Pace has announced it has become a member of the Wi-Fi Alliance and is to incorporate Wi-Fi technology into selected upcoming set-top boxes.

The boxes, certified by the Wi-Fi Alliance, will be capable of transferring content over the 2.4GHz and 5GHz radio wave bands via a single high-speed connection gateway, and will be compatible with the 802.11a, b, g and n transmission protocols.

Darren Fawcett, Chief Technologist, Pace, said: “As we move towards a converged home entertainment environment, one of the biggest challenges is moving content around the home; Pace is at the forefront of developing a whole range of technologies which allow operators to offer these kinds of capabilities. Our membership of the Wi-Fi Alliance will aid us in exploiting wireless technology to develop future generations of products with increased flexibility in connecting and sharing media content.”

The Wi-Fi Alliance develops testing and certification programs to enhance user experience with Wi-Fi technology.
