STOCKHOLM -- Seliro, which specializes in device and management software for broadband operators, today unveiled a Managed WiFi Mesh software solution, developed on the Qualcomm Mesh Networking Platform, thatís significantly improving operator-centric broadband solutions for the residential mesh networking market.
Seliro develops high-performance software and management platforms that empower operators to improve user experience for the smart home ecosystem and other connected devices. By integrating with the Qualcomm Mesh Networking Platform by Qualcomm Technologies, Seliro can now offer operators a managed mesh WiFi solution, designed to deliver robust and consistent connectivity in every corner of the household, centralized management and security, and a range of features essential for carrier-grade networks.
Seliro uses its device software and management platform in the Managed Wi-Fi Mesh solution to significantly improve flexibility for operators. The solution can be deployed behind a legacy router with full manageability, or deployed as a fully integrated home network, during which the router acts as an active mesh node to further improve operators' cost-savings.
"Mesh networks are primed for widespread adoption as a means to eliminate connectivity dead zones and better meet the demands of modern consumers and smart homes," said Michael Gustavsson, vice president, products and services at Seliro. "Integrating our software with the Qualcomm Mesh Networking Platform allows our company to offer this new and highly attractive technology as a managed solution for our clients."
Seliro has already integrated the solution with select hardware vendors and other relevant ecosystem partners. The first commercial launch by an operator client with the Seliro Managed Wi-Fi Mesh solution is forthcoming.
"Qualcomm and Seliro have further emphasized WiFi mesh as a networking architecture ready for broad industry deployment, said Irvind Ghai, vice president, product management at Qualcomm. "Qualcomm Mesh Networking Platform will support Seliro to help ensure that its managed solution is aligned with the ongoing standardization efforts by the at Wi-Fi Alliance as well."
Democratic candidate Christine Hallquist, herself a former CEO of Vermont Electric Cooperative, believes the state's digital divide will end if she wins and mandates that all utilities pay to deploy fiber, then sell their wholesale services.
In a new report produced in tandem with SCTE/ISBE, Heavy Reading spells out what cable operators are doing with fiber now, what they plan to do with it in the future and which challenges are the biggest.
Nokia kicks off a busy October by announcing a fixed access network slicing solution, PON interoperability approach and antennas that make a sound business case for 4G fixed wireless residential service.
With the availability of SD-Access products that leverage Amendment 3 Gfast capabilities like 212 MHz spectrum, DTA support and ability to deliver symmetric gigabit speeds, operators can quickly sate the needs of gigabit-hungry customers.
Given their complexity and the number of high-speed demands placed on them, operators could use a "medical checkup for the network," writes Eddy Vergauwen, who leads global services marketing activities for Nokia's Fixed Networks.
Fast, reliable broadband is essential to how we live, work and play today Ė and the upcoming arrival of 5G will only further increase demand and reliance on fiber infrastructure. Already viewed by consumers as intolerable, delays, outages or the regular maintenance difficulties associated with operating a network will become further exacerbated when residential subscribers further rely on connected devices for day-to-day life. Just as providers deploy network automation tools to reduce operational issues, they must take similar care to manage consumer expectations when they roll out fiber or new services. This webinar features leaders who will discuss how to manage marketing and consumer expectations at every stage of the network lifecycle. Marketing professionals, c-level executives and policymakers interested in drumming up fiber envy should attend.
In this insightful Light Reading radio show, Kurt Raaflaub, Head of Strategic Solutions Marketing, will outline the key service provider challenges, deployment considerations, next-gen Gigabit technologies, and service models to win market share in the rapidly growing MDU market.
