Swisscom launches WLAN-Box

December 12, 2017

SoftAtHome, the software provider for operator CPE devices, has announced that its Smart Wi-Fi solution powers the Swiss incumbent’s new WLAN-Box.

The new WLAN-Box is a 3-in-1 Access Point device (Repeater, Extender, Video bridge) improving Wi-Fi reception throughout the home. Swisscom’s TV-Box is connected to the WLAN-Box without the need for dedicated video bridges, de-cluttering the home. “

With the SoftAtHome Smart Wi-Fi solution and the new WLAN-Box, we are happy that our customers can now experience the best WLAN throughout their homes.” said Marcel Burgherr, Head of Gateways, Phones and other Devices at Swisscom. “Running on both Internet-Box and WLAN-Box, SoftAtHome’s Smart Wi-Fi solution simplifies installation in the home requiring one less device. With this enhanced user experience, we satisfy important customer needs.”

“We are delighted that Swisscom has selected our new Smart Wi-Fi Solution for their WLAN-Box. Swisscom can now deliver best-in class wireless connectivity in every corner of the home,” said David Viret-Lange, CEO of SoftAtHome. “I am proud that after five years of a fruitful partnership, Swisscom has again placed its trust in our latest technology.”
