Recently we are investigating the next generation router platform.
It seems Snapgradon is the best choice at the moment. From Snapgradon, Qualcomm derived a lot of router CPU: IPQ806X and IPQ401X
We have two existing products on the market: TP-LINK C2600 and Netgear R7800
As we can see they all have IPQ806x CPU, which are essentially the same. And QCA998X, which runs ath10k driver with MU-MIMO and beamforming support.
Both of the routers are supported by LEDE right now.
Luckily we have the stamp module of IPQ8064 that we can use as our router design:
Moreover, we are also considering IPQ4018, which just 2T2R wifi integrated. It requires less size and less power.
But it supports MU-MIMO
I will update when we develop it.
