Date / Time: Thursday, October 14, 2021, 11:00 AM Pacific / 2:00 PM Eastern
Wi-Fi has evolved at a rapid pace, with ever more innovative devices to help us in our digital life. Wi-Fi has become an essential part of our world, as important as your first cup of coffee. Subscribers take Wi-Fi for granted and often think of Wi-Fi as "the Internet." When it works, you do not hear from them but, when it doesn't work it’s the "end of the world" as far as they're concerned. What can providers do to offer a great Wi-Fi experience? A great Wi-Fi experience starts with a great foundation of Wi-Fi hardware and an easy-to-use management platform.
Industry leaders like Plume and Zyxel have emerged at the forefront and teamed up to offer the next generation of in-home managed Wi-Fi with solutions like Plume's OpenSync and Zyxel's latest Wi-Fi 6 solutions.
