You’re investing millions of dollars into your access network. But what’s the point of delivering 1 Gbps services—and beyond—to your subscribers’ homes if their in-home experience is antiquated? Most subscribers do not understand the difference between the access network and their home network. The terms “Wi-Fi” and “Internet” are interchangeable. They do, however, understand what it’s like to have a fast, reliable connection. And, they know who to call when they do not. Recent advancements in Wi-Fi technology (including Wi-Fi 6 and Wi-Fi 6E) are designed to deliver the fastest, most reliable connectivity throughout subscribers’ homes. Join this session to learn more about the latest technical enhancements and (more importantly) the real-world benefits of these improvements.
