Nokia Monday introduced its carrier-grade, in-home Nokia Wi-Fi portfolio consists of a new line of Wi-Fi gateways and extenders for gigabit connectivity experience.

Nokia said the new portfolio provides superior user experience to every corner of the home - be it video, gaming or plain surfing.

In addition, the Wi-Fi experience and coverage is optimized by industry first Wi-Fi interference detection and identification. For service providers, the Nokia solution will result in happier subscribers and help decrease Wi-Fi related support costs.

Accordingt to Nokia, one of the main challenges of the in-home Wi-Fi network is intermediate interference which can be caused by other Wi-Fi devices (the neighbor's network for instance) or non-Wi-Fi devices including microwaves, baby monitors, LTE, cordless phones and wireless game controllers. This interference is even more problematic in an apartment building with a large number of neighbors.

By using Broadcom's BCM4363 WLAN chipset with Air-IQ technology, Nokia is enabling best-in-class Wi-Fi performance by analyzing and avoiding these interference effects, allowing the extension of the Gigabit experience to every corner of the home. Air-IQ helps to minimize connectivity issues, significantly reducing the associated helpdesk costs and number of truck rolls required for a service provider.

Fererico Guillen, President of Nokia Fixed Networks
Everyone knows how tedious malfunctioning Wi-Fi networks can be. People demand instant connectivity and perfect coverage throughout their homes. Nokia in-home Wi-Fi delivers just that. Nokia Wi-Fi will be a great tool for service providers to increase customer loyalty and focus on new revenue streams. 

Greg Fischer, SVP and GM, Broadband Carrier Access 
Wi-Fi is becoming a managed service offering at many broadband operators around the world and, as a result, the unique insight provided by Air-IQ becomes essential to ensure best-in-class performance while minimizing total cost of ownership.
