ISTANBUL & AMSTERDAM -- At IBC2016, AirTies Wireless Networks, a leading international provider of premium in-home wireless systems, today unveiled its next-generation, ultra-performance in-home Wi-Fi system aimed to support broadband operators around the globe. The new system is designed to meet the acute needs of operators to improve the quality of the in-home customer experience, and enables operators to monetize Wi-Fi in new ways as a premium service.

According to ABI Research, more than 831 million households are forecasted to have residential Wi-Fi networks in 2021, and customers are relying on residential Wi-Fi networks more than ever because of the growing number of connected devices in the home. ABI also noted that "broadband service providers need to invest more in home Wi-Fi solutions, like Wi-Fi Mesh network systems, or run the risk of customer churn."

Unlike traditional Wi-Fi, which relies on a single Access Point (AP) from a router/gateway, AirTies' system uses multiple APs placed around the home to create an intelligent Mesh network that ensures consistent performance of high quality, whole-home Internet coverage. The centrepiece of the new system unveiled today is the compact Air 4830, which supports simultaneous streams of 4K/UHD video, and the platform needed for new in-home devices and services (e.g. smart monitoring, home security, virtual reality, IoT, etc.) from operators.

"Today we're launching our most advanced Wi-Fi Mesh solution ever, designed to meet the needs of operators today and into the future," said Philippe Alcaras, CEO of AirTies. "Subscribers are paying for faster broadband services, but they aren't getting those speeds consistently throughout the house because of outdated Wi-Fi. It's a pivotal time for operators, requiring a rethinking of the whole-home environment, and AirTies is at the forefront of helping them with this transition. Our new premium Wi-Fi Mesh system, based on the Air 4830, sets a new bar for sustainable and managed performance, and enables operators to drive incremental revenue and customer satisfaction by offering new classes of premium Wi-Fi services."

Product Details and Specs

AirTies' compact Air 4830 units connect to each other wirelessly using AirTies' Wi-Fi Mesh, which creates alternate data paths between multiple APs to deliver more resilient and higher capacity data streams throughout the home. The new units support 2Gbps total wireless speed, with state-of-the-art 4x4 11ac Wave 2 Mu-MIMO technology at 5GHz simultaneously with 2x2 11n technology at 2.4 GHz. The product delivers exceptional and consistent performance throughout the home. Air 4830s include AirTies' unique Client Steering technology to ensure devices continually connect to the best available access point and frequency bands (2.4GHz and 5GHz) based on real-time network usage. In addition, the system supports AirTies Remove View, version 1.0, a cloud-based, beta in-home performance monitoring system to support installers and network engineering teams. Air 4830 will be commercially available by the end of this year.

New Monetization Models for Premium Wi-Fi

Based on its proven experience with leading operators throughout Europe, North America, and Asia, AirTies also noted that the Air 4830 system can enable brand new business opportunities, while simultaneously lowering support costs. By having a premium Wi-Fi option for subscribers, operators can generate new monthly subscription revenues, provide an upgrade incentive to higher tier broadband subscription plans, sell devices directly to their consumers, or use a combination of these approaches. In addition, the Air 4830 has simple one-button touch set up that enables easy self-install for consumers, and provides automatic network optimization for enhanced performance which can ultimately drive down customer care costs and truck rolls.

At IBC, AirTies will be located in Hall 5 at stand 5.C70. More information about AirTies is available at
