The GigaMesh enables communications service providers (CSPs) to extend WiFi coverage to all corners of subscribers' homes or businesses and elevate their revenue by monetizing the enhanced subscriber experience. The EXOS-powered GigaMesh is the ultimate plug-and-play wireless satellite that works alongside the GigaSpire to ensure unmatched WiFi coverage in hard to reach areas within a home or business. When combined with Calix Marketing Cloud, CSPs quickly can reap this revenue opportunity by leveraging data-driven insights and engaging those subscribers ready to extend managed WiFi throughout their home.
"As our subscribers buy more and more smart devices, we are excited Calix is delivering a fully configurable portfolio that enables us to match the solutions we deploy to the unique needs of each subscriber," said William S. Helmly, president and CEO Home Telecom, which serves customers in and around South Carolina. "The flexibility of the Calix Smart Home and Business solution extends the power of EXOS all the way to our subscribers, enabling us to elevate their experience and ensure their entire home is covered. This allows us to deliver and monetize new services."
Although subscribers want WiFi to work everywhere, myriad different connected devices and hubs scattered throughout their homes makes this challenging and can be costly to support. The GigaMesh simplifies the extension of coverage into harder to reach areas. The GigaMesh plugs directly into a wall outlet, provides guidance for optimal in-home placement via a simple LED indicator, and is configured in seconds without any need for a support call or an on-site visit from the service provider.
"Since smart home devices are often equipped with weak WiFi radios and low-quality antennas, despite being designed to make subscribers' lives easier, they often cause headaches," said Shane Eleniak, Calix' senior vice president of platforms. "Calix is committed to ensuring service providers can deliver the right experience for each subscriber. With a fully configurable portfolio of EXOS-powered systems such as the GigaSpire and now the GigaMesh, CSPs can monetize the tailored solutions they provide. For a smart home system to be truly smart, it must match flexibility with performance. The Calix GigaMesh ensures this level of performance by maximizing WiFi coverage, delivering lightning-fast Internet speeds that can exceed 1.2 Gbps."
Network neutrality advocates want the FCC to open a proceeding to reinstate broadband as a Title II service amid a pandemic that has amplified the need for broadband connectivity, particularly for low-income households.
Today’s access network architecture is under mounting pressure due to a continued surge in the number of connected devices, a proliferation of bandwidth-intensive customer applications and dramatic shifts in usage patterns related to the pandemic, such as work-from-home and e-learning.
