Orange taps AirTies for WiFi in France and Poland

airties orangeOrange has chosen wireless technology and set-top box provider AirTies to provide in-home WiFi solutions to subscribers in France and Poland.

In France, Orange uses AirTies’ Air 4920 wireless extenders as an available accessory to compliment Orange’s Livebox, which combines 4K/Ultra HD television and dual-band Wi-Fi. Air 4920s are used to extend the Wi-Fi signal and capacity into hard to reach areas within subscribers’ homes to enhance overall coverage.

In Poland, Orange’s subscribers are able to use multiple AirTies’ Air 4920 Mesh Extenders placed around the home to create an intelligent mesh network that ensures consistent, high quality whole-home Internet coverage, the company said.

This managed mesh solution includes AirTies’ Client Steering technology to ensure connected devices, such as tablets and mobile phones, continually connect to the best available frequency bands, both 2.4GHz and 5GHz, based on real-time network conditions within the home. It also includes access to AirTies’ Remote Manager, a cloud-based, in-home performance management system.

“Orange is at the forefront of delivering high-quality broadband to millions of subscribers, and we’re extremely proud to support them with our premium Wi-Fi solutions,” said Philippe Alcaras, CEO of AirTies.

“They recognise with the rise of connected devices, streaming video, and overall Internet speeds that subscribers are more dependent than ever on the performance of their home Wi-Fi networks. AirTies shares Orange’s vision of delivering the best possible Wi-Fi to consumers.”
