Premium in-home wireless systems provider AirTies has announced the imminent launch of two next-generation, in-home Wi-Fi Mesh products for global broadband and TV operators.

airties 24aug2017The Air 4930 Access Point (AP) and Air 7430 IP set-top box (STB) are designed to improve whole-home performance and enable operators to monetise premium Wi-Fi services in new ways.

AirTies say that it fundamentally engineers its systems with multiple APs placed around the home to create a Mesh network that it says ensures consistent, high quality Internet performance for today’s super-connected homes. AirTies’ Wi-Fi Mesh Technology is designed to enable operators to support TV, Internet, home security, smart home and IoT offerings with integrity of Wi-Fi throughout the home.

Key features of the Air 4930 include 2.5Gbps total wireless speed, 4x4 11ac Wave 2 Mu-MIMO, 2x2 11n technology, and support for the AirTies Remote View cloud-based, in-home performance monitoring system to support installers and network engineering teams.

The Air 7430 doubles as both a 4K/Ultra HD STB and a Wi-Fi Mesh Access Point improving Wi-Fi performance for nearby smartphones, tablets, and other connected devices throughout the home, while saving the cost of adding an additional Wi-Fi extender. Key features of the Air 7430 include 7K DMIPS; IPTV, managed OTT, Verimatrix Ultra Security; 4K UHD, HEVC, VP9, HDR video quality and SDR-HDR conversion.

“Outdated Wi-Fi is a major cause of frustration for subscribers and operators alike,” said Metin Taskin, AirTies chief technical officer and co-founder. “Whether it’s for consistently fast Internet connections for every device in the home or delivering quality 4K Ultra HD video streams to IPTV set-top boxes, it’s clear that Wi-Fi Mesh is essential for today’s super-connected homes. AirTies continues to push the envelope of product innovation as the most widely deployed provider of Wi-Fi Mesh solutions for global operators. Our new Air 4930 and Air 7430 products provide service providers with the ability to stream 4K Ultra HD video, improve whole-home coverage, leverage real-time home network performance data, and clearly differentiate their Wi-Fi offers from the competition.”
