Consumers continue to demand more from their home networks and today, much of that demand is centered on mobile devices. The more mobile device penetration we see, the more important it will be to extend and improve wireless coverage to enable consumers to enjoy perfect Wi-Fi in every corner of their home, while providing a perfect mobility experience based on a smooth optimal handover between Wi-Fi cells.”

“Celeno is a strategic partner of Comtrend, and their leading edge solutions make for a critical addition to our home networking product portfolio," says Frank Chuang, VP Marketing of Comtrend. “Their smart Wi-Fi solution provides a significant advantage for our customers in terms of superior user experience and customer satisfaction, as well as by offering both extended coverage with reliable service and increased capacity in a distributed network.”

In addition, OptimizAIR 2.0 ensures the higher capacity and superlative QoS required for a distributed home network with multiple nodes. A simple single push of a button enables rapid self-install. For service providers, this results in a dramatic decrease in service calls and associated operating expenses due to an enhanced customer connectivity experience throughput the home.
