Step up to Wi-Fi 6 and maximize the performance of legacy networks
Date / Time: Tuesday, August 10, 2021, 10:00 a.m New York / 3:00 p.m London
sponsored by

With more and more Wi-Fi 6 capable routers and client devices being shipped, a first question is how service providers can optimize the Wi-Fi performance beyond what end-users can do by themselves and allow end-users to fully benefit from Wi-Fi 6. Another question is whether all the Wi-Fi 5 and Wi-Fi 4 networks need to be upgraded, or whether this CAPEX-heavy decision can be postponed?

In this webinar we focus on how service providers can bring the best Wi-Fi performance to end-users, regardless of the Wi-Fi generation, and how they can lay a solid broadband foundation throughout the whole home, enabling value-add services on top of Wi-Fi.

Key topics include:

  • Introduce a two-level Wi-Fi optimization (local and cloud-based)
  • Complement an EasyMesh™ compliant mesh network with local algorithms for real-time Wi-Fi optimization
  • Leverage on a cloud platform to finetune the Wi-Fi settings and obtain network wide KPI reporting
  • Use the same cloud platform to “upgrade” the performance of legacy Wi-Fi devices
  • Give your helpdesk real-time visibility on in-home networks
