Addressing the Challenges of Delivering Best-In-Class Whole Home WiFi

The challenges in providing a quality WiFi experience throughout an entire home are well documented. These challenges include managing distance or interference from walls and even furniture. Homes larger than 4,000 sq. feet can be particularly challenging.

Beyond coverage issues, service providers also face challenges with SSID management between gateways and WiFi extenders. For example, in a home where the gateway is placed on the first level and an extender is on the second or third level, a WiFi client may receive poor connectivity on the first level because the client device may stay connected to the extender on the upper levels (and vice versa) as subscribers move throughout the home. These and other frustrating scenarios lead to a poor customer experience, often resulting in tech support calls to the service provider.

There are solutions that address these issues and give service providers the tools they need to deliver the right whole home WiFi experience.

Multy Pro from Zyxel is helping broadband service providers simplify whole-home Wi-Fi networks. It has a myriad of benefits such as corner-to-corner whole home coverage with MeshIQ.

Our latest solution release, the EMG6726 Dual-Band Wireless AC2400 Gigabit Ethernet Gateway, is an addition to our 11 AC Gigabit Ethernet Gateway series that offers high-speed performance and maximum wireless coverage. Designed for smooth multimedia streaming, the EMG6726 can reach speeds of 1.7 Gbps and 600 Mbps at 5 GHz and 2.4 GHz respectively. The EMG6726 is Multy Pro compatible.
