AirTies Wireless Networks, a provider of managed Wi-Fi Mesh solutions to global service providers, have announced that Get, a fibre-based broadband and content provider in Norway, chose AirTies to supply its new, premium in-home Wi-Fi service, called WIFIX, which includes a whole-home coverage guarantee.
Approximately 500,000 homes and business currently connect to Get’s fibre-based network, and more than 1 million private and business customers rely on Get’s services on a daily basis. Get customers have access to one of the country’s fastest broadband networks, among Norway’s largest selection of digital TV channels and a separate film store with more than 6,000 rental titles. Get’s broadband customers can also view TV channels on tablets and smartphones, and also remotely control their Get PVR using the TV app. The company recently introduced WIFIX, a whole-home Wi-Fi solution pioneered by AirTies.
Unlike traditional Wi-Fi, which relies on a single Wi-Fi Access Point (AP) on a home gateway/router, Get offers multiple Mesh Extenders from AirTies to create an intelligent Wi-Fi Mesh network throughout subscribers’ homes to deliver fast and consistent, whole-home Internet coverage. AirTies’ elegant and compact Air 4920s use AirTies’ Mesh Software, which automatically “steers” consumers’ devices (laptops, tablets, smartphones, game systems, smart home devices, etc.) to the best available access point, channel, and band (2.4GHz and 5GHz), based on real-time network conditions in a home. Get also relies on AirTies’ Remote Manager, a cloud-based Wi-Fi optimization software suite that provides key in-home Wi-Fi performance data and analytics to improve the consumer experience. Get customers can sign up for a monthly subscription for WIFIX, which includes three Mesh Extenders.
“Our customers depend more than ever on the performance of their Wi-Fi networks, as the use of connected devices and video streaming continues to proliferate,” said Gunnar Evensen, CEO of Get. “The expectations our customers have when it comes to Wi-Fi necessitate top-of-the-range products. And with our WIFIX concept we’ve already seen significant improvements in customer satisfaction”.
“Get is at the forefront of delivering high-quality broadband across Norway, and we’re proud to support them with our Managed Wi-Fi Mesh solutions,” said Philippe Alcaras, CEO of AirTies. “With Get WIFIX and AirTies, consumers can get the superfast, reliable Internet they crave in every corner of the home.”
Eye Networks, a reseller of high-quality network solutions to the Norwegian telecom industry, is the exclusive B2B reseller for AirTies in Norway since 2010, and starting this year also offers AirTies’ Wi-Fi solutions to the Finnish, Swedish, and Danish markets. “More and more ISPs are acknowledging that the home Internet experience is wireless, and that the only way to secure good user experiences is to provide high-quality Wi-Fi with integrated management,” said Jan Pedro Tumusok, CEO, Eye Networks. “We are thrilled and proud to be part of this sea-change, and to see Get and other Scandinavian ISPs at the very forefront.”
