Celeno Technology to Power Askey Gateways and Wi-Fi Extenders

Advanced Solution to be Showcased at IBC 2016

[IBC, Amsterdam – September 9th 2016] – Celeno Communications, the leading provider of smart, managed Wi-Fi solutions today announced that its high performance Wi-Fi technology has been selected to power Askey’s newest range of home Wi-Fi Gateways and extenders. A wholly owned subsidiary of ASUS Computers, Askey specializes in Broadband Connection, Home Networking, and Video Entertainment total solution to Telecom and MSO Operators. Askey’s new Wave 2 802.11ac DOCSIS 3.1 Broadcom Gateway (BCM3390) Gateway and three extenders – MOCA, G.hn based, all equipped with Celeno’s technology including Celeno’s ControlAIR™ multi-AP management software and Celeno’s OptimizAIR™ 2.0 Wi-Fi management software technology. The 802.11ac Wave 2 Gateway and MOCA extender also include Celeno’s Argus engine in-chip dedicated RF circuitry and DSP-based engine for spectrum scanner and analyzer.

“We have selected Celeno’s technology because it delivers a powerful and highly intelligent Wi-Fi solution – both hardware and software – enabling an improved home Wi-Fi experience for the end-user in a device-saturated reality,” said Marvin Chen, the RD Head of Cable Research and Development team at Askey. “Faster Wi-Fi is not enough to master the challenges of today’s connected world, it needs to be smarter as well. We believe that Celeno’s industry-leading technology provides that missing link.”

“Smart Wi-Fi management is the key to help service providers and consumers manage their ever more challenging home networks,” said Lior Weiss, VP Marketing and Business Development of Celeno. “We’re excited to be partnering with Askey to see our technology incorporated into home gateways and extenders giving the end-user such unique, yet extremely easy to manage and intuitive control over their home networking experience.”

The Argus engine enables zero wait DFS channels entry and automatic, seamless channel change that are critical for satisfying 4K video experience in “real life” congested spectrum environment. The technology enables the gateway to seamlessly transition between Wi-Fi channels to seek the cleanest spectrum for best operation. This transition does not affect service and offers flicker free video without downsizing the radio dimensioning.

ControlAIR™ multi-AP management software allows for increased capacity, coverage and speed of Wi-Fi when adding smart companion Wi-Fi Access Points, Repeaters or Extenders in the home. ControlAIR is the industry’s only effective software solution to orchestrate multiple APs to increase throughput by adding smart cluster connectivity and dynamic Radio Resource Management (RRM) addressing the move towards a “small cell” Wi-Fi network or “Sprinklers” architecture for the wireless home of tomorrow.

Finally, Celeno’s smart Wi-Fi software technology OptimizAIR™ 2.0 enables the virtualization and management of Wi-Fi resources, so that Wi-Fi capacity can be dynamically apportioned and provisioned to different devices, services and applications. It allows for homespots, IoT, home security and community Wi-Fi on different SSIDs with unprecedented reliability.

The products will be demonstrated at the Celeno Suite, Hall 15, Meeting Suite MS2 at IBC from 8th-12th Sept in Amsterdam.
