ARRIS Home Network Management products simplify the delivery, management and support of advanced subscriber services, helping you keep up with the steady stream of new devices and customer demands for more bandwidth, mobility, and choice.
The home has changed radically over the past decade. Consumers have shown an insatiable appetite for applications and services delivered via personal mobile devices. Traffic over Wi-Fi has increased exponentially and Video – both over-the-top and managed video – delivered over Wi-Fi makes network problems immediately visible to consumers. This coupled with Mobile device usage has created demand for greater coverage, high performance, and high quality.
Wi-Fi is a huge challenge for operators. Troubleshooting Wi-Fi problems is difficult because the network is invisible and there are many sources of interference. It creates long technical support calls, unnecessary truck rolls, and unnecessary equipment returns. The rapid rise in Wi-Fi devices and corresponding traffic has exceeded the capacity and coverage capabilities of many residential gateways. Consumers have little or no visibility into what is happening on their network and Retail vendors are attempting to capitalize on this opportunity by delivering their own solutions direct to the consumer. This creates additional support issues for the broadband service provider when dealing with unmanaged equipment providing Wi-Fi.
However, there is a real opportunity to turn Wi-Fi into an advantage -- by delivering high quality Wi-Fi, and increasing customer satisfaction while simultaneously reducing operational expenses.
