IPQ8064 and IPQ4018

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.

      Hi, IPQ80XX AND 40XX are all well supported by QSDK, which is a Qualcomm fork of openwrt.

      It is better than LEDE and mainstream openwrt due to the tons of optimizations.

    Does the LEDE support MU-MIMO and beamforming with R7800?
