Speaking at Broadband World Forum in London, Karsten Gewecke highlighted why all Wi-Fi related concerns come back to being an issue for the service providers and how they can embrace this and become part of the solution.
Slow performance and coverage limitations are a major issue for service providers and as the demand on Wi-Fi rises in line with the ever-increasing rates of video streaming and 4K video, customers are looking at service providers more and more to solve any Wi-Fi related crisis.
“Next Gen CPE and Wave 2 Wi-Fi technologies will help address some of the issues that we are facing, offering coverage, speed and user experience improvements,” says Gewecke. “Service providers need to look at what is already in place in their networks and find a solution that fits. With easy set-up, network discovery, network diagnostics & troubleshooting and remote management, ZyXEL’s ONE Connect and Wi-Fi excellence solutions are answering these issues on a global scale.”
“Service providers are looking at ways to address the coverage issue proactively whilst ensuring they remain in complete control of their networks. With this ever-increasing demand for full in-house coverage, we are seeing a trend towards additional Access Points and Wi-Fi extenders,” says Gewecke.
Karsten Gewecke proposes that the ease-of-use and simplicity of Wi-Fi Wave 2 technologies make them an attractive option. ZyXEL has developed a range of Wi-Fi excellence, and home networking solutions that create exceptional user experiences for service providers. In particular the ONE Connect solution, launched this week at Broadband World Forum allows service providers to gain a highly detailed overview of the home networks they serve. Through the insight of ONE Connect, ZyXEL is putting service providers back in control.
