SoftAtHome, an independent software company for broadband, video, and analytics, announced today that its Wifi’ON and Connect’ON solutions are powering Orange Poland’s new Funbox 6, released in January across Poland. Subscribers can now enjoy next-gen Wi-Fi services thanks to the new Wi-Fi 6 standard’s higher performance combined with Fibre’s reliability using GPON. The home gateway offers the fastest end-to-end Wi-Fi in Poland with over 1 Gb/s downstream and 300 Mbps upstream. The gateway’s brand-new hardware designed by Sagemcom uses recycled plastic and will enable lower power consumption with optimised control of the seven antennas to provide enhanced coverage. Features delivered by SoftAtHome include parental control, guest Wi-Fi, HD Telephony over DECT and key Quality of Service optimisations.
The new Funbox offers an improved customer experience thanks to a smarter Wi-Fi network in the home. Wifi’ON is already present on Orange Poland repeaters. The combination of algorithms on both the gateway and repeaters delivers the best connection to the right Access Point and the right Wi-Fi channel, throughout the home. SoftAtHome’s Wifi’ON can also bring unique advantages by distributing the solution’s AI between home-LAN components and Cloud-based intelligence.
“We have worked closely with SoftAtHome’s team to bring the fastest and best-in-class Wi-Fi and Fiber to our customers,” said Marcin Ratkiewicz, Digital Technology director at Orange Poland. “SoftAtHome is a long-term partner, and we are confident with their successful experience with Wi-Fi6 implementation in Europe.”
“SoftAtHome is proud to have been selected for Orange Poland’s latest home gateway,” said David Viret-Lange, CEO of SoftAtHome. “Thanks to this new gateway powered by our Wifi’ON and Connect’ON products, Orange Poland’s Funbox 6 provides the fastest broadband experience in Poland! My experts have worked hard with Orange teams to provide the best customer experience in the Polish market.”
