WiFi 6 is seeing strong traction and is quickly becoming a mainstream technology. While bringing massive performance improvements, this new generation of WiFi technology has also created complexities of its own, making service providers look beyond just providing fast pipes to homes. With many spectrum bands (including the newest 6GHz band), many topologies including mesh, and a wide range of devices with different QoS requirements, it is almost impossible for the average consumer to correctly configure and manage WiFi 6 systems in modern smart homes. One of the most effective ways for service providers to rise to this challenge is to utilize cloud-based AI models. Tune in to this webinar for a deep dive into how the right cloud AI models enable service providers to reduce the complexity by dynamically configuring and provisioning home WiFi 6 systems to maximize performance and provide an excellent user experience.
