    Dual-receiver and transmitter - Why?

    I was studying some datasheets from companies that produces transmitters and receivers for Wimax/Wifi... and some of them has 2 receivers and 1 transmitter. It's not enough to have 1 receiver and 1 transmitter (or a transceiver) Why they have 2 receivers? There's any special reason for that?
    Anyone could explain why?

    Best regards,

    Canosa

    The datasheet tells why. To implement diversity http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antenna_diversity and beamforming.
