Wireless chipmaker Quantenna announced today that it has added to its Series C round with new investor Swisscom, a Swiss telecom provider. The amount wasn’t officially disclosed, but it appears to be roughly $2 million, given that today’s press announcement says the company has raised $44 million to date and in April it was reported that the company had raised $42 million total at that time.
Fremont, Calif.-based Quantenna makes chips that allow for wireless transmission of HD video within the home. Quantenna’s pitch is that it uses Wi-Fi to beam that sweet HD video around your house. Quantenna competitor Amimon, which uses the WHDI protocol for wireless HD, recently announced that it had raised $10 million in a Series D round, bringing its total to $50 million. SiBEAM, another competitor that uses the WirelessHD protocol, has raised roughly $78 million.
