Build with QUALCOMM®

The E98 deploys the QCA98xx wireless SoC processor family, with the QCA9890-BR4B as the flagship model and part of Qualcomm's Wireless Infrastructure Network architectures. 

Wi-Fi workhorse under any conditions.

Modules that offer complete enterprise features, designed for network platforms and access points with indoor or outdoor placement. 

The AIRETOS E98 Class supports demanding wireless link configurations for retail, carrier and enterprise networking customers. The E98 Class includes 2- and 3-stream, dual-band 802.11ac (Wi-Fi 5) mPCIe designs, with data rates up to 1.3 Gbps. It offers a complete platform for use with the entire Peregrine family of QCA98xx SoCs,. Even more Qualcomm ASICs are supported, from the Besra reference design for single-band and cost-down applications.

The E98 Class enjoys community support under Linux ATH10K and a range of drivers for Windows and Android OS.
