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.
