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, that’s 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."

Tune in to Broadband World News Radio on February 14 at 11 a.m. ET / 8 a.m. PT / 4 p.m. UK when John Isch, Practice Director of the Network and Voice Center of Excellence at Orange Business Services, discusses use cases, ROI and misconceptions of software-defined wide-area networks, virtualization and cloud.
Consumers are buying millions of IoT devices, from smart thermostats and security systems to intelligent entertainment setups and furniture. Yet many of these devices remain isolated because home users are uncomfortable connecting them to each other – or even their WiFi. After all, their WiFi network was probably designed only to handle a few laptops, a gaming system and a couple of smartphones. Now, demand on the network is surging and even though you're delivering 100 Mbps to 1 Gbps, that doesn't necessarily mean the broadband power is in the right place or reaches every corner of a home.
Even if WiFi coverage is sufficient, typing is not on trend. Voice is far more natural, easier and faster. Using a TV keyboard is archaic when more and more households have access to cloud-based voice services, like Amazon Alexa. This webinar will explore how service providers can create a comfortable, truly smart home for consumers – simultaneously driving up margin and loyalty.
