Nokia helps to establish smart homes in Thailand by enabling mesh Wi-Fi

Nokia helps to establish smart homes in Thailand by enabling mesh Wi-Fi
Nokia has teamed up with Thailand-based broadband provider AIS Fibre to provide mesh Wi-Fi to facilitate the creation of smart home environment in the country.
Nokia's WiFi solution creates a meshed network that eliminates dead spots and optimizes performance to ensure homeowners receive a seamless ultra-broadband experience throughout every corner of the house, regardless of the device being used.
AIS Fibre is the first high-speed broadband Internet provider in Thailand that offers full pure Fiber access to homes and residential buildings. AIS Fibre says it is committed to creating a new smart home digitally as well as giving digital life experiences to Thai people.
“We aim to grow together with our business partners in all areas such as content providers, real estate businesses, village builders and condominiums, including government and private agencies to create new opportunities from Fixed Broadband technology with all sectors in Thai society,” AIS Fibre says in a statement.
Many homes in Thailand suffer from poor Wi-Fi performance. Speeds and reliability can be impacted by the number of connected devices and by interference from appliances like microwave ovens or Wi-Fi networks from neighbors. In addition, coverage is often inadequate due to dead zones created by indoor walls. Solving these issues can be difficult and often requiring several access points to be installed. 
The Nokia Wi-Fi solution aims to address these networking challenges. Designed to detect 100% of both Wi-Fi and non-Wi-Fi interference sources, the Nokia WiFi Beacon 3 automatically connects devices to the strongest channel to enable flawless connectivity. Additionally, embedded software and analytic functions in the beacons automatically self-heal and optimize the Wi-Fi experience.
Once the Nokia beacons are delivered, AIS Fibre customers can get their network up and running in few minutes by downloading a mobile app and following the guided setup process. Once the network is up, customers can use the mobile app to see a visual representation including a heat map to locate and manage dead zones and identify the right place to add new access points to fill coverage gaps. Customers can also access device lists and management capabilities to create guest networks and specific security settings.
“It's clear that Wi-Fi is a major challenge because, most don't provide or manage the Wi-Fi network in the home that customers rely on for broadband access, said Benoit Felten, chief research officer at Diffraction Analysis. “To deliver a great end-to-end service, operators need to ensure a consistent broadband experience can be achieved in the home.”
“AIS Fibre is the first operator in the world to commercially launch Nokia's innovative mesh Wi-Fi solution,” said Saran Phaloprakarn, Head of Fixed Broadband at AIS, adding that the company is creating a new standard in home Wi-Fi networks.
Nokia's President of Fixed Networks Business Group Federico Guillén said, "The Nokia Wi-Fi solution uniquely addresses the customer need for a better Wi-Fi experience while giving service providers the tools and visibility they need to quickly resolve issues and enhance customer loyalty."
