Bring Your Own Access Points

Carrier Wi-Fi requires features that are simply aren't available on consumer-grade Wi-Fi access points and gateways: link-level admission control, airtime fairness and advanced traffic prioritization to name a few.

We've squeezed these features into a tiny software component that can easily be retrofitted in just about any residential gateway or access point.

Delight Your Subscribers —
Reduce Churn

It's a fact: carrier Wi-Fi services reduce churn. But only if your subscribers actually use them.

Traditional homespots rarely attract more than 15% of subscribers. With our solutions you can expect to see 95% of subscribers on your community network, on multiple devices, several times a day. Simply delightful.

Gain Deep Insights

Our Controller lets you manage carrier Wi-Fi services distributed across millions of access points. But it also lets you monitor the quality of those services, in unprecedented detail.

By combining our solutions with an operational intelligence tool like Splunk you can evaluate the effect of new admission control policies, find areas where coverage can be improved or even correlate quality of experience with churn.

Security You Can Really Trust

If you've rolled out a carrier Wi-Fi service you've probably had to use tunnels here and there to ensure traffic separation and traceability. But if we have to tunnel anyway, isn't there something better than Soft-GRE?

We tunnel the raw encrypted Wi-Fi traffic. This lets you rest assured that your subscribers are safe, even if an attacker is in control of an access point.

Innovative Architecture — Standard Interfaces

We take great pride in our innovative Software-Defined Wireless Networking architecture. But we also understand that innovation doesn't happen in a vacuum; that your carrier Wi-Fi network has to interface with existing systems. Every outward-facing interface in our architecture is standard.
