Don’t Let Wi-Fi Ruin Your Brand: Extenders Come Into Play!

With more and more connected devices in the home, some being far from the main wireless router and facing interference coming from other devices, it is becoming difficult to get good Wi-Fi coverage and performance in every room, particularly in a multi-user environment.

With more and more connected devices in the home, some being far from the main wireless router and facing interference coming from other devices, it is becoming difficult to get good Wi-Fi coverage and performance in every room, particularly in a multi-user environment.

To tackle this problem, several Wi-Fi repeaters have reached retail stores, offering consumers the promise of Wi-Fi everywhere. End-users still experience issues after installation: the roaming is not optimal when the repeater is wrongly placed, more interference is introduced.

For more than 20 years, Technicolor has demonstrated a first-to-market position on disruptive broadband technologies – and Wi-Fi performance is no secret for our renowned team of wireless experts. In addition to our powerful gigabit home gateways, we are engineering unique Wi-Fi extenders that ideally contribute to making seamless whole home Wi-Fi coverage a reality.

Indeed, these extenders leverage several innovative technologies to deliver connectivity-quality-levels.

First, they embed Wi-Fi 6, the new wireless revolution. While being backward compatible with the previous version of the standard, Wi-Fi 6 dramatically increases the signal strength and is particularly adapted to dense environments as it compresses more devices into a Wi-Fi channel. It also reduces interferences and improves battery life of client devices.

For a perfect roaming experience, our extenders are EasyMesh compliant, the new standardized and open approach to multiple access points in the home. Enriched with advanced roaming software, they intelligently select the most appropriate access point and frequency bands to maximize performance for every user and device in the home.

In order to build, deploy, and support new wireless services more efficiently and faster, our extenders run technicolor HOMEWARE, our powerful gateway middleware that is apps-ready, secure, open and interoperable. HOMEWARE makes possible the integration of our partners’ applications, as part of our HERO program, a strategic partnership initiative that accelerates the introduction of new solutions and services to the NSP community. You can benefit from innovative apps even if you do have a Technicolor home gateway deployed!

As an example, to keep the subscribers’ wireless home network healthy over time, our extenders include innovative partners’ apps that diagnose wireless issues and automatically heal them dynamically while providing operators with advanced insights about the end-users’ Wi-Fi environments.

Lastly, the Technicolor Wi-Fi extenders come in two versions: dual or tri-band capabilities, offering an unprecedented and strong 5Ghz backhaul connectivity with the main gateway.

Combined with our Wi-Fi antenna design and optimization expertise, our range of extenders guarantees wireless coverage and speed everywhere and for everybody in the home. To know more about this, please do not hesitate to contact your local Technicolor representative.
