The German telecommunications giant Deutsche Telekom (DT) is partnering with Airties – a supplier of managed Wi-Fi solutions – to leverage the latter’s smart Wi-Fi products and services for DT’s European subscribers.

The agreement will see DT providing home performance management and optimisation through Airties Cloud. The cloud-based solution optimises operator gateways and extenders in real-time while providing insights on connected devices. The company says Airties Cloud manages more than 33 million homes and supports more than 646 million actively connected devices across the globe.

The telco will also leverage Airties Edge – a smart Wi-Fi software that directs consumers’ devices to the best available channel and band (2.4GHz and 5GHz), based on real-time network conditions. The company says the software “enables an existing home gateway/modem to double as an intelligent Wi-Fi access point, improving the quality and stability of connectivity within the home.”

Philippe Alcaras, CEO of Airties said, “Deutsche Telekom is a clear global leader when it comes to embracing technological innovations that improve the lives of their customer. Having consistent, quality home Wi-Fi is more essential than ever before, and Deutsche Telekom fully recognizes this across its various markets. We are honored that Deutsche Telekom selected Airties to help them provide a managed Smart Wi-Fi experience to their customers throughout Europe.”

Pedro Bandeira, VP of Product and New Business at Deutsche Telekom. “Providing exceptional home broadband is of paramount importance to Deutsche Telekom, and that includes delivering the best possible Wi-Fi to our customers. After examining the market, we selected Airties because of the proven quality, scalability, and versatility of their Smart Wi-Fi portfolio. We look forward to bringing these advanced Wi-Fi capabilities to our customers in the months ahead.”
