Continuing its drive into expanding and enhancing TV and video services, global telco Orange has selected in-home wireless systems and set-top box (STB) solutions provider AirTies to boost in-home Wi-Fi to subscribers in France and Poland.

OrangeAirTies 14Nov2017While traditional Wi-Fi solutions rely on a single Access Point (AP) from a router/gateway, AirTies’ intelligent and Mesh-ready devices are designed to improve in-home Wi-Fi performance and support streaming video and Internet service throughout subscribers’ homes. This unique managed Mesh solution includes AirTies’ Client Steering technology to ensure connected devices, such as tablets and mobile phones, continually connect to the best available frequency bands (2.4GHz and 5GHz), based on real-time network conditions within the home. It also includes access to AirTies’ Remote Manager, a cloud-based, in-home performance management system for service providers to optimise in-home Wi-Fi.

In France, Orange will use AirTies’ Air 4920 wireless extenders as an available accessory to complement Orange’s Livebox, which combines 4K/Ultra HD television and dual-band Wi-Fi. Air 4920s can extend Wi-Fi signals and capacity into hard to reach areas within subscribers’ homes to enhance overall coverage. In Poland, Orange’s subscribers will be able to use multiple AirTies’ Air 4920 Mesh Extenders placed around a home to create an intelligent Mesh network that it says ensures consistent, high quality whole-home Internet coverage.

Orange is at the forefront of delivering high-quality broadband to millions of subscribers, and we’re extremely proud to support them with our premium Wi-Fi solutions,” said Philippe Alcaras, CEO of AirTies. “It recognises [that] with the rise of connected devices, streaming video, and overall Internet speeds ... subscribers are more dependent than ever on the performance of their home Wi-Fi networks. AirTies shares Orange’s vision of delivering the best possible Wi-Fi to consumers.”
