Nokia and Uniti Group’s Retail brands including FuzeNet, HarbourISP and Uniti Broadband, have announced the first commercial launch in Australia of Nokia’s WiFi Beacon. Utilizing mesh technology, Nokia’s Beacon 1.1 solution will allow Fuzenet and HarbourISP to provide residential customers with superfast and reliable Wi-Fi coverage throughout the home.
Kurt Magner, Chief, Consumer & Small Business at Uniti Group, said: “As the digital revolution enters our living rooms, kitchens and offices, so must our Wi-Fi networks. Nokia’s WiFi solution ensures uninterrupted connectivity and high speeds into every corner of our subscribers’ homes, transforming them into true digital homes. We are thrilled to be the first service provider to offer a Nokia WiFi Beacon solution in the country.”
Anna Wills, Managing Director of Australia and New Zealand at Nokia, said: “Service providers often have no visibility of poor in-home network issues. A sub-standard Wi-Fi experience inside the home negates the benefits of excellent broadband service promised by providers and is increasingly the leading cause of consumer complaints. Consumers who are seeking uniform in-home coverage with no disruptions. The Nokia solution, which is a combination of local and cloud-based Wi-Fi optimization, helps achieve the best overall Wi-Fi performance for residential customers.”
