Whole-home managed Wi-Fi

Deliver high-performance Wi-Fi throughout the home with HomeAssure™

Wi-Fi has become the fourth domestic utility. It’s the primary means for consumers to connect to internet services. Today it’s the quality of Wi-Fi that defines their perception of the broadband service.

For broadband service providers, delivering high-performance Wi-Fi that works reliably throughout the home is essential to meet growing customer expectations, and can be a differentiator for the service offering. As the volume and cost of Wi-Fi related support calls increase, the solution provided has to be easy for the consumer to install and use while being managed proactively to reduce support costs.

Challenges and opportunities

Wi-Fi that just works

Coverage with performance

Even as the number of connected devices continues to grow, consumers expect excellent coverage everywhere in their home. As broadband connections deliver gigabit speeds, they expect faster Wi-Fi throughout.

Consumers are prepared to pay for solutions to their Wi-Fi problems. This has been proven by the growth in retail sales of mesh Wi-Fi products, which account for over 40 percent of retail access point revenues in North America3.

At CommScope, we help service providers meet and exceed subscribers’ expectations, with solutions that improve Wi-Fi coverage and performance. We make these solutions simple for consumers to self-install and use, which is essential to reduce the high volume of Wi-Fi related calls to service provider support channels.

Our solutions make it possible for service providers to deliver premium services like UHD sports, IoT and VR over Wi-Fi. We provide the consistency needed to deliver service promises that increase customer satisfaction.
