New architecture enables providers to deliver advanced Cloud Wi-Fi services using a variety of compatible, multi-vendor Access Points and certified open source software.
Ottawa, Canada, February 25, 2020 – NetExperience announces interoperability between its Wi-Fi Cloud Modular Application Platform (CMAP) and a variety of Access Points from several vendors running TIP’s Open AP software. A demonstration originally planned at Mobile World Congress 2020 at the Telecom Infra Project (TIP) booth will be rescheduled for a future event.
NetExperience CMAP provides individually deployable cloud modules for centralized management, customer profiles, quality of experience management, network automation and network troubleshooting. Cloud based radio resource management optimizes the Wi-Fi capacity and user experience. Network KPIs and events history allow troubleshooting without truck rolls, and without having to wait to replicate the issues. Using machine learning and rule engines enable network automation.
“Adapting the CMAP platform to work with TIP products will allow Wi-Fi providers to bring unprecedented innovation, quality of experience and cost reductions to enterprises large and small” said Bernard Herscovici, CEO of NetExperience.
The TIP Wi-Fi Project Group is bringing an eco-system centric approach to Wi-Fi, enlisting the collaboration of major service providers, OEMs, software and silicon providers. “We welcome NetExperience’s participation in TIP’s Wi-Fi Project Group, and look forward to our future collaboration” said Attilio Zani, Executive Director, the Telecom Infra Project.
NetExperience is leading the transition to a disaggregated Wi-Fi network. NetExperience Cloud platform allows service providers to integrate WLAN controller and management capabilities into their back office. The platform is compatible with the three key components of the Telecom Infra Project Wi-Fi architecture: CloudSDK, certified open source Access Point software and compatible Access Point hardware. NetExperience is a contributor and co-manager of the TIP open source CloudSDK and Access Point software.
