BANGKOK, THAILAND — AIS Fibre, a fixed broadband operator, is teaming up with Nokia to provide residential customers with a new premium service that ensures a seamless Wi-Fi broadband experience reaching every corner of the home. AIS Fibre customers in Thailand will be eligible to receive the Nokia WiFi Beacon 3 duo-pack for a special price which, once installed, quickly establishes a whole-home meshed Wi-Fi network that significantly enhances ultra-broadband coverage and performance.
Many homes suffer from poor Wi-Fi performance. Speeds and reliability can be impacted by the number of connected devices and by interference from appliances like microwave ovens or Wi-Fi networks from neighbors. In addition, coverage is often inadequate due to dead zones from indoor walls. Solving these issues can be difficult, often requiring several access points to be installed.
Delivering a Meshed Wi-Fi Experience
The Nokia Wi-Fi solution eliminates these common home networking challenges and provides AIS Fibre customers with a true meshed Wi-Fi experience that is easy to install and delivers the whole-home coverage and performance needed to support ultra-broadband services. Designed to detect 100 percent of both Wi-Fi and non-Wi-Fi interference sources, the Nokia WiFi Beacon 3 automatically connects devices to the strongest channel to ensure a flawless experience. Additionally, embedded software and analytic functions in the beacons automatically self-heal and optimize the Wi-Fi experience, eliminating the need for customers to manually manage the network to achieve optimal performance.
Once the Nokia beacons are delivered, AIS Fibre customers can get their network up and running in few minutes by simply downloading a mobile app and following the guided setup process. Once the network is up, customers can use the mobile app to see a visual representation including a heat map to easily locate and manage dead zones and identify the right place to add new access points to fill coverage gaps. Customers can also quickly access device lists and management capabilities to create guest networks and specific security settings.
“The Nokia Wi-Fi solution uniquely addresses the customer need for a better Wi-Fi experience while giving service providers the tools and visibility they need to quickly resolve issues and enhance customer loyalty,” said Federico Guillén, president of Nokia’s Fixed Networks Business Group. “We are excited to be teaming up with AIS Fibre to deliver a solution that will create a differentiated in-home Wi-Fi networking experience for their customers and ensure the ultrabroadband services they deliver can be used across the home.”
