Plume’s device maker partners cite the unique advantages of deploying WiFi CPE in combination with OpenSync and Plume’s SaaS Experience Platform:
“The accelerating adoption of our cloud-managed, mesh WiFi solutions worldwide has validated our strategic decision to partner with Plume and adopt the OpenSync platform. By complementing our fiber access portfolio with Plume’s AI-driven, adaptive WiFi we are delivering end-to-end fiber networking solutions to service providers of all sizes and unlocking the future network,” said Robert Conger, SVP, Technology and Strategy, Adtran.
“Our combined teamwork with Plume integrating AXON Network’s vEdge and Digital Twin architecture with OpenSync, is perfect for an end-to-end Cloud managed network platform”, said Martin Manniche, CEO, AXON Networks. “Together we are driving ahead of prpl, utilizing the same architecture across DSL, fiber, FWA and cable. Our 100% WAN agnostic routing provides CSPs and telcos with future proof design and control to drive OPEX and CAPEX costs down.”
“CastleNet has integrated OpenSync with its DOCSIS 3.1, WiFi 6 and WiFi 6E CPEs,” said Ying Chang, Chairman & CEO of CastleNet Technology Inc. “By combining the unique CastleNet CPE designs with OpenSync and Plume’s SaaS Experience Platform, end users are able to enjoy multi-gig network access and new, highly personalized and value-added cloud services.”
“In today’s hyperconnected world it is imperative that customers have access to the technology necessary to serve flawless experiences,” said Mr. Zhao Haibo, CTO and Co-Founder, CIG. “We recognize that this can only be achieved by harnessing the power of the cloud, and to that end OpenSync is the established and logical choice for service providers.”
“Comtrend’s longstanding commitment to the rural CSP community has reached a higher level with OpenSync integration and functionality. Offering an array of integrated gateways, now including VDSL, opens new opportunities for carrier deployments,” said Kenny Chiu, CEO of Comtrend.
“The winning combination of Evolution Digital’s leading WiFi 6 and 6E OpenSync technology and Plume’s smart home services platform enables CSPs to offer a best-in-breed managed WiFi experience to their customers while increasing ARPU and lowering OPEX. Together with Plume as our trusted partner, we leverage OpenSync’s flexible and reliable framework to ensure CSPs enjoy the benefits of faster time-to-market, as well as consistent maintenance and support. Additionally, CSP logistics are massively enhanced by Evolution Digital’s forward-thinking supply chain management, which guarantees our customers available and ready-to-ship OpenSync hardware stocking levels,” said Marc Cohen, Chief Revenue Officer, Evolution Digital.
“Plume’s latest data report illustrates just how fast the smart home market is evolving with a 10% growth in connected devices per home and an 11% increase in data consumption in 1H 2022; it’s therefore critical to meet these changing consumer needs and expectations through scalable cloud-driven solutions. OpenSync integration ensures that we can leverage an open-source ecosystem that––together with Plume’s SaaS Experience Platform––among many benefits, harnesses the power of the cloud to carry out sophisticated WiFi optimizations, and deliver the best possible experiences to consumers,” said Greg Fisher, President, Hitron Technologies Americas.
“We are pleased to launch our OpenSync-enabled DOCSIS 3.1 Gateway, following the successful deployment of RDK-B in Japan. The HUMAX Networks DOCSIS 3.1 Gateway will enable subscribers to create an adaptive, wireless mesh experience in the home, with all the customer self-service apps they need for a simple self-install. HUMAX Networks will continue to expand its cooperation with OpenSync to supply more OpenSync-enabled CPE globally,” said Jerry Lee, CEO of HUMAX Networks Inc.
“While we recognize that WiFi standards get better over time, we also acknowledge that it’s critical to offer service providers a solution that leverages the powerful cloud control necessary to maximize the performance potential of the new specifications, while at the same time, providing a platform to support the delivery of new services,” said DS Jeon, CEO, KAON Broadband Co., Ltd. “With many people around the world now working-from-home permanently as a result of the pandemic, the need for additional performance, coupled with value added services, is more critical than ever; OpenSync provides the perfect solution.”
“The WiFi 6E specification ushers in some very powerful benefits including faster throughput and lower latency which are critical to the performance of many modern applications,” said Ahmed Selmani, Executive VP, Sagemcom. “In the frame of the unique and integrated partnership between Plume and Sagemcom, only by pairing the best hardware designed by Sagemcom with sophisticated cloud control and new services provided by the Plume platform will service providers be able to get the absolute most out of the new specifications.”
“Interoperability is a huge consideration in today’s complex in-home networks,” said James Wang, CEO, Sercomm. “OpenSync enables all WiFi CPE to coexist in a customer home which brings service providers tremendous flexibility when introducing new generations of WiFi. The powerful combination of Plume’s SaaS Experience platform and OpenSync enabled hardware––including Sercomm home gateways and extenders––ensures that every device in the home is fully optimized to deliver a consistently exceptional customer experience.”
“Capacity is a key concern within the home network and while the specifications are advancing to meet evolving needs, it is critical that the control methods also move forward to ensure that smart home users derive the best experience possible,” said Ashwani Saigal, Vice President Broadband Access Product Development, Technicolor (soon to become VANTIVA). “The solution lies not only in supplying the most sophisticated hardware, but in the platform needed to carry out sophisticated network optimization––we are confident that the choice of OpenSync and Plume’s SaaS Experience Platform will enable service providers and their customers to get the most out of the new WiFi 6E specifications.”
“Deploying OpenSync-certified CPE with Plume’s robust SaaS Experience platform enables service providers to select and incorporate best-of-breed products that deliver the network features and performance that subscribers demand, and the remote management capabilities that lower OPEX and increase customer satisfaction,” explained Brian Feng, Senior Vice President of Zyxel Communications. “The integration of OpenSync into select Zyxel WiFi 6 CPE enables service providers to leverage the whole-home WiFi coverage provided by our OpenSync-certified Gigabit and multi-Gigabit gateways and wireless extenders, allowing them to reliably deliver their premium services to every corner of the home.”
