Plume Design's Adaptive WiFi solution, including its Pods, are now available as an integrated part of Sagemcom's WiFi-enabled FTTH, DOCSIS, and DSL gateway portfolio.

Plume Adaptive WiFi is a distributed WiFi solution designed to dynamically respond to varying WiFi conditions throughout the home, and across multiple apartments in a multiple dwelling unit (MDU) environment. It includes a set of Pods designed to plug directly into sockets around the home, directed by the Plume Cloud.

Integrated into various Sagemcom gateway CPE platforms, the Plume gateway agent enables wireless connectivity between the gateway and the Pods. The entire home network and the devices connected to it are actively monitored by the Plume Cloud.

The Pods auto-connect to Sagemcom home gateways with no action required by the user. An integrated part of the solution is the Plume mobile app, which is designed to allow WiFi access control for guests or family members, device visibility, and provide insights into network speed and coverage.

The joint solution makes both reactive and preemptive decisions to improve signal, speed and resiliency such as allowing mobile devices to roam around the home, balancing network loads, and mitigating interference. Service provider-facing network operations center (NOC) software provides information on the health, performance and history of the home WiFi network.

The partnership enables Sagemcom to manufacture and sell the Pods directly to service providers on the same model as its broadband home gateways, while Plume provides the cloud-based network management, control, optimization, analytics and business intelligence services.
