Belgium’s Proximus is deploying AirTies Cloud, a platform that continuously optimises networks to provide real-time visibility into subscribers' Wi-Fi performance.
The solution also allows remote diagnostics and troubleshooting. It gives operators insights and analysis on connected devices and data consumption patterns within the home, along with proactive recommendations.
“Having a great Wi-Fi experience at home and in the office is a key need for our customers. We have seen strong growth in the number of connected devices, combined with a variety of services running on these devices,” said Jim Casteele, Chief Consumer Market Officer of Proximus.
He added, “We already offer our customers the possibility to extend their Wi-Fi coverage with our Wi-Fi Booster. With AirTies Cloud, we can now proactively manage and optimise our customers’ Wi-Fi to help them stay connected and entertained. Providing our customers with intelligent Wi-Fi is part of our commitment to offering the best set of converged services.”
AirTies says that with its AirTies Cloud tool, there is no need to download any client-side software on subscribers' personal devices.
“AirTies' unique hybrid cloud-edge architecture leverages both the embedded intelligence in CPEs and cloud-based analytics to maximise responsiveness and performance. This capability is key for home environments with high-band low latency applications such as gaming and UHD video,” the company said.
