Proximus taps AirTies Cloud platform for Wi-Fi performance

News

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.

Extended coverage

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.
