WiFi

SmartRG, an ADTRAN company, announced Intellifi, a whole-home, mesh WiFi solution tailored for service providers. Intellifi is intended to deliver broadband to every corner of the home with the new SE80ac wall-pluggable, mesh access point (AP).

Scalable to up to five SE80ac satellites, the network automatically creates a mesh system to deliver coverage to every room in the home and eliminate dead spots.

Intellifi enables support via remote management and predictive customer care powered by analytics, as well as air-time management to balance triple-play surfing, voice and video service. SmartRG's solution also integrates within the carrier network to perform automatic updates and can prioritize video, voice and gaming services.

Intellifi devices are self-organizing and can be managed over wireless, Ethernet, coaxial and powerline connections.

Intellifi SE80ac mesh kits are in customer trials today and are slated to be generally available in Q4 2019. Additional mesh kits featuring tri-band capability, as well as WiFi 6 (802.11ax) are planned for availability in 2020.
