“Solving residential Wi-Fi issues has become a priority for service providers selling higher bandwidth subscriptions, as Wi-Fi is the primary means customers judge the quality of their broadband subscription and service provider,” IHS Markit Technology Principal Analyst John Kendall said. “Consumers expect their Wi-Fi to work everywhere, and work well. Deploying whole-home mesh networking with dynamic steering is a good way to ensure a seamless Wi-Fi experience for the consumer. Further, the ability to self-diagnose to proactively resolve issues and self-optimize the home network can be powerful tools to reduce both churn and operating expense.”

The new whole home Wi-Fi solution is part of the comprehensive Mosaic Subscriber Experience Suite which together create a market-leading, user-driven service model to enable a simple, intuitive broadband experience, better in-home network visibility and performance optimization.
