PARIS – In advance of the upcoming prpl Summit 2023, Airties, a global leader of managed Wi-Fi solutions for broadband service providers, announced that it is integrating its Smart Wi-Fi solutions with prpl, a leading open-source community driving innovation in the digital home and broadband industry. As a member of the prpl Foundation, Airties' Smart Wi-Fi software, will provide broadband service providers with additional flexibility across chipsets and OEMs to support their home broadband deployment plans.
With the prpl Foundation, Airties is collaborating with industry leaders that are contributing to the development of open-source technology to enable network optimization and enhance the end-user experience. This includes key initiatives across the prpl ecosystem, such as the prplOS and prplMESH, software solutions that are being pre-integrated with Airties Cloud and Airties Edge. By leveraging its expertise with global broadband service providers, Airties is contributing valuable insights around standard APIs for Operator Managed Wi-Fi (OMWi) and other technical capabilities to the prpl Foundation’s diverse network of industry partners.
Airties Smart Wi-Fi software is currently integrated on more than 100 different CPE platforms from all major OEMs, leading Wi-Fi chipset providers, and can be ported onto any gateway or CPE. Airties' unique hybrid cloud-edge architecture leverages both the embedded intelligence in customer premises equipment (Wi-Fi 7, Wi-Fi 6E, Wi-Fi 6, etc.) and the cloud to maximize responsiveness and performance. Airties Edge, smart Wi-Fi software for gateways/routers, intelligently directs consumers’ devices (laptops, tablets, smartphones, game consoles, IoT, smart home devices, etc.) to the best available Wi-Fi access point and frequency band based on real-time network conditions. Airties Cloud monitors and orchestrates Wi-Fi across homes, optimizing broadband gateways and mesh extenders to ensure a better quality of experience for consumers, while providing insights on connected devices. Airties' app is a customizable companion app that allows consumers to visualize and intuitively manage their home connectivity, control who has access to the network via parental and guest controls and provides step-by-step guidance for customers to self-install Wi-Fi mesh extenders.
