Samsung and Xfinity use Plume's stack to power their home IoT ecosystems
Interconnected devices on the internet are making our homes smarter, but for most consumers, Wi-FI is the internet. That’s why Plume has been at the forefront of delivering flawless Wi-Fi experiences as a platform to develop a wider range of services that go beyond the current limitations of home IoT.
Plume CEO Fahri Diner and his team all have backgrounds in the telco industry and were well aware of the critical nature of upstream networks for delivering reliable internet into homes. Despite the robust bandwidth entering homes it wouldn’t be uncommon for users to complain about internet dropping and other issues. “That’s largely because the last few metres of the network is, for the most part, served by Wi-Fi” explains Diner.
But delivering a consistent Wi-FI experience is conditioned by a number of factors, complicated even further by the fact that connected devices have different throughput needs or packet switching requirements. Plume’s novel solution to this Wi-Fi problem, aptly named the Plume Adaptive WiFi goes far beyond just simple Wi-Fi switching. Their cloud coordinated WiFi system constantly optimizes the mesh as well.
