Bermai to Demonstrate 802.11e Wireless During Computex Taipei

PALO ALTO, CA -- 05/27/2004 -- Bermai, Inc., pioneer of high performance, ultra-integrated chipsets for Wi-Fi applications from wireless LAN to wireless multimedia, today announced a standards-based, wireless multimedia network hardware demonstration to take place during Computex Taipei, June 1-5, 2004. Based on the IEEE standard for Quality of Service (QoS) over a Wi-Fi wireless LAN, 802.11e, Bermai has implemented the world's first .11e HCCA/WSM production system that delivers a significant increase in net-throughput and guarantees bandwidth to support multiple, uninterruptible high capacity streams over a wireless network. Production samples of Bermai's 802.11e WSM chipset will available by the end of June 2004.

The Computex Taipei demonstration will consist of a Bermai technology-enabled .11e HCCA/WSM media server streaming content wirelessly to an HDTV client, SDTV client, and third party data client simultaneously. Bermai's meeting suite will be in the Far Eastern Plaza Hotel located 10 minutes from the TWTC Exhibition Hall. To make an appointment contact Paul Frankel, Bermai Director of Business Development,, +1 650 331 8741.

"We are very excited to be the first company to deliver the robust, high performance of 802.11e WSM QoS," said Bruce Sanguinetti, Bermai President and CEO. "Having worked with us over the past few months, several leading CE companies will soon be introducing wireless multimedia products based on Bermai's Wi-Fi Certified .11a plus .11e WSM-capable QoS chipset."

More on Bermai's 802.11e-based Wireless Multimedia Systems

Unlike expensive and/or proprietary wireless multimedia chipsets, Bermai's high performance, ultra-integrated systems are based on the IEEE 802.11e draft standard -- both HCCA/WSM and EDCA/WME -- and will interoperate, not interfere, with existing 802.11/Wi-Fi networks. Bermai's .11e multimedia technology is currently available as part of the Bermai two-chip, Wi-Fi Certified, 802.11a, 5GHz chipset and will soon become available for 802.11g at 2.4GHz.

Bermai's multi-transceiver (MIMO) technology provides for a robust link in the presence of multipath interference, and with HCCA/WSM, delivers a 40 to 50% increase in net throughput with guaranteed QoS for high-bandwidth, jitter-intolerant applications such as streaming video.

To make it simple for customers to develop production systems, Bermai offers PCI development boards with miniPCI wireless cards, a programming API, Windows or Linux drivers, and complete reference designs for Cardbus and miniPCI form factors. The flexible architecture ensures final .11e standard compatibility along with Wi-Fi certification.
