BUTLER, Pa. -- Armstrong, a major cable, telecommunications and internet service provider with operations in PA, OH, NY, MD, WV and KY, announced today the launch of Zoom Powered by Plume, a new smart home services bundle designed to improve broadband coverage and speeds and help personalize and secure the home network. Powered by cloud-based artificial intelligence, Zoom Powered by Plume offers an integrated solution that is controlled from the Plume app.

Backed by technology from Palo Alto-based Plume, the new service further enhances a customer's online experience through custom guest access, parental controls, and AI security for added protection of their devices. Plume works alongside Armstrong's existing broadband connection, letting customers make the most of its ultrafast speeds in every corner of their homes.

The Plume integration brings Zoom subscribers:

  • Plume Adaptive WiFi which intelligently monitors, adjusts and optimizes your network for peak performance.

  • HomePass which lets members control guest and child access to their network, set up profiles, and pause the Internet.

  • AI Security to detect and block potential security threats, customize content access, and block unwanted ads.

  • Elegantly designed, powerful tri-band SuperPods that plug directly into wall sockets to ensure reliable coverage.

Zoom Powered by Plume will now be part of the standard offering for new customers. It includes two SuperPods with add-on pods available for an additional fee.
