Get Selects AirTies to Provide Wifix In-Home WiFi
ISTANBUL, Turkey and OSLO, Norway -- AirTies Wireless Networks, the most widely deployed provider of managed Wi-Fi Mesh solutions to global service providers, today announced that Get, a leading fibre-based broadband and content provider in Norway, chose AirTies to supply its new, premium in-home Wi-Fi service, called WIFIX, which includes a whole-home coverage guarantee.
Approximately 500,000 homes and business currently connect to Get's fibre-based network, and more than 1 million private and business customers rely on Get’s services on a daily basis. Get customers have access to one of the country's fastest broadband networks, among Norway's largest selection of digital TV channels and a separate film store with more than 6,000 rental titles. Get’s broadband customers can also view TV channels on tablets and smartphones, and also remotely control their Get PVR using the TV app. The company recently introduced WIFIX, a whole-home Wi-Fi solution pioneered by AirTies.
Unlike traditional Wi-Fi, which relies on a single Wi-Fi Access Point (AP) on a home gateway/router, Get offers multiple Mesh Extenders from AirTies to create an intelligent Wi-Fi Mesh network throughout subscribers’ homes to deliver fast and consistent, whole-home Internet coverage. AirTies’ elegant and compact Air 4920s use AirTies’ Mesh Software, which automatically “steers” consumers’ devices (laptops, tablets, smartphones, game systems, smart home devices, etc.) to the best available access point, channel, and band (2.4GHz and 5GHz), based on real-time network conditions in a home. Get also relies on AirTies’ Remote Manager, a cloud-based Wi-Fi optimization software suite that provides key in-home Wi-Fi performance data and analytics to improve the consumer experience. Get customers can sign up for a monthly subscription for WIFIX, which includes three Mesh Extenders.
