Thailand's AIS Fibre has become the first operator globally to commercially launch services based on Nokia's in-home meshed Wi-Fi solution.

The operator will offer customers Nokia CPE designed to provide a seamless Wi-Fi broadband experience across every corner of the home.

Nokia's meshed Wi-Fi solution is designed to address common issues impacting Wi-Fi performance in the home, such as interference from household appliances or neighboring Wi-Fi networks, as well as dead zones from indoor walls.

The Nokia WiFi Beacon 3 solution is designed to detect 100% of both Wi-Fi and non-Wi-Fi interference sources and automatically connect to the strongest channel to provide the best possible performance. The beacons also include embedded software and analytic functions to automatically self-heal and optimize Wi-Fi networks.

Under the agreement, AIS will offer the beacons to customers at a special price. The solution is designed to be set up in minutes and generate a heat map to help users identify and manage dead zones.

“In speaking with service providers from all over the world 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,” Diffraction Analysts chief research officer Benoit Felten said.

“To deliver a great end-to-end service, operators need to ensure a consistent broadband experience can be achieved in the home and Nokia is helping make that happen.”
