Technicolor’s Home Hybrid Gateway Receives EasyMesh Certification, Brings Advanced Wi-Fi Capabilities to Market (MESA)

The at home Wi-Fi ecosystem has been in a state of continuous evolution and competition. The demands driven by consumer behaviors and the entry of both new technologies and new market players have placed Network Service Providers in a position where they must develop new services more efficiently, with faster time-to-market in order to stay ahead of potential disruptors.

The EasyMesh standard accelerates the growth of a new ecosystem of vendors, technology developers, platform and service providers that will support the introduction of new innovations for the home.

EasyMesh brings these capabilities to the subscribers’ home networks:

Best placement of multiple Access Points providing extended coverage;
Easy setup that delivers automatic device onboarding and configuration;
Self-organizing and self-optimizing network intelligence that collects information and responds to network conditions to maximize performance;
Effective load balancing that guides devices to roam to the best connection and avoid interference;
Scalability which enables the addition of Wi-Fi EasyMesh access points from multiple vendors.
