VT6655 — VIA´s WLAN controller

VIA Networking Technologies, a developer of network solutions, today announced the VIA Networking VT6655 WLAN Controller, a single chip solution featuring an IEEE 802.11g media access controller (MAC) and integrated baseband processor. Enabling data rates between wireless devices of up to 54Mbps, WLAN modules based on the VIA Networking VT6655 can deliver the bandwidth necessary for real-time streaming of high-definition digital multimedia content in home networks, and provide high-speed email, web and LAN access to multiple mobile users in corporate environments or public hotspots.

Designed with flexibility in mind, the VIA Networking VT6655 is compatible with a choice of PCI 2.2, Mini-PCI or Cardbus interfaces, and offers seamless compatibility with the leading RF chips currently available, ensuring WLAN module makers benefit from a wider choice of RF vendors and potentially lower development costs. Backwards compatible with the 802.11b standard, VIA Networking VT6655 based devices enable smooth migration for all 802.11b-based networks, without the need to sacrifice existing WLAN infrastructure.

In addition to providing high-speed wireless communication between devices, the VIA Networking VT6655 ensures optimum data security through the Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) specification. The forthcoming WPA 2.0 specification is also supported, which will be enabled through a downloadable software update. The VIA Networking VT6655 is Wi-Fi certified by the Wi-Fi Alliance (formerly WECA), the global organization that oversees the Wi-Fi interoperability certification program. In order to receive official Wi-Fi certification, all IEEE 802.11 products must undergo rigorous independent testing.
