ISTANBUL -- AirTies, the innovative wireless home networking vendor is launching the industry’s first high definition, 802.11N wireless video set-top box featuring self-service secure wireless network setup with a single push of a button and solid state storage on NAND flash. Air 7124, the high definition, wireless, IPTV/WebTV set-top box (STB), targeted at IPTV operators, eliminates the need for cables between multiple STBs, allowing the device to be located anywhere in the home and allowing single-touch, automated customer installation.

The Air 7124 is an elegant, compact, high definition STB for IPTV, WebTV and Video-On Demand (VoD) applications. Operating in conjunction with the compatible AirTies wireless gateway, it is the first STB to offer seamless wireless video distribution in the home together with internet data access for home computers. Using AirTies’ wireless Quality of Service (QoS) and Mesh Networking technology, the Air 7124 offers a prioritised, interference free signal, ensuring a reliable high quality TV viewing experience, without the need to run cables between multiple devices in the home. The combination of AirTies STB and gateway enables high quality end-to-end wireless video distribution at home and offers a simple one-touch installation and setup of a secure wireless network by the end-user, getting rid of truck rolls and installation costs for the operators.

The new AirTies STB also features 96 GB NAND flash memory and the default 2 GB solid state NAND flash offers a cost-effective, Pause-LiveTV feature for the masses without the shortcomings of a mechanical hard drive. This enables storing of photos and music without the 50% cost increase of a hard disk drive. Furthermore Flash disk is more reliable, lower power and produces no noise when compared with mechanical hard disks.

According to AirTies CEO, Bulent Celebi: “The beauty about the wireless video STB is that it appeals to both consumers and operators: It dispenses with the need for unsightly cables and allows consumers to locate their TV wherever they choose. It also has immense appeal to the operator as; by allowing customer self-setup and self-provisioning; it removes the expense of engineer installation and makes it easier and cheaper to sell as a retail product.”

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
