devolo presents its new smart Wi-Fi technology at Broadband World Forum

Home networking provider devolo will be presenting its new smart Wi-Fi Technology at Broadband World Forum from 24th – 26th October in Berlin. This new, innovative solution combines three key features that enable customers to experience the best in-home Wi-Fi connection possible.

With its new Smart Intelligent Wi-Fi technology, devolo addresses the need for seamless connectivity across the home. The technology combines three key features: Advanced Roaming, Airtime Fairness and Band Steering.

Advanced Roaming ensures that Wi-Fi-enabled devices are always connected to the strongest, most stable hotspot within the home. Airtime Fairness prevents older or slower devices from slowing down the entire network, by assigning more airtime to newer Wi-Fi ac products that transmit data faster. This results in a noticeable increase in the speed of the entire Wi-Fi network. In addition, smart Intelligent Wi-Fi continuously checks the utilisation of the various channels in the 2.4 and 5 GHz ranges and has the flexibility to select the most optimal channel through band steering.

Smart Intelligent Wi-Fi is already available as an upgrade for the dLAN 1200+ Wi-Fi ac series of devolo’s range of powerline adapters. Upcoming Wi-Fi powerline adapter releases will be already equipped with the technology.

devolo’s latest innovation is highly beneficial because it enables operators to meet the growing expectations that customers demand from their home network. devolo is addressing a market of customers who want to be able to roam around their home and have a seamless connection versus being tethered to a wired LAN connection.

“Users want to decide for themselves when and where they surf the Internet, listen to music or stream 4k/UHD content.”, Werner Fehn, vice president Product Management at devolo says. “They expect a seamless interruption-free connection across the entire home. Service providers are giving them the freedom of smart in-house mobility and have the opportunity to create an even better customer experience which leads to stronger customer retention.”

With its leading portfolio of powerline and Wi-Fi solutions, devolo has become a long-term partner of international Internet Service Providers and operators. As the world market leader for powerline communications, with over 34 million dLAN adapters shipped, devolo has developed a deep insight into the needs and expectations of customers.

devolo will be demonstrating its smart Wi-Fi Technology and portfolio of Powerline products at booth D102 at Broadband World Forum 2017 at Messe, Berlin from 24th – 26th October.
