As wireless consumer devices that facilitate high definition video streaming or on-line gaming popularity, the need for pervasive, high capacity wireless home networks becomes increasingly more pressing. Today, one of the primary limitations of home Wi-Fi networks is coverage. Most setups provide Wi-Fi connectivity to all devices in the home via a central wireless Access Point (AP); these setups mostly have "null" zones where the reception is very limited such as bathrooms, corners, the far room down the hall.

Furthermore, the bandwidth available to Wi-Fi devices connecting from these zones is quite low, which severely limits the functionality of data-hungry applications such as video streaming. Increasing the signal strength of the central AP not only increases the cost and environmental impact of the system, but it cannot always completely solve the problem given legal limits on the emitted signal power.

This technical white paper explores the challenges of Home Wi-Fi, such as path loss and power limitations explaining them in detail. It also references case studies that it has carried out.
