The adoption of the NetExperience/TIP OpenWiFi solution is a potential game-changer for us as it further reduces our OPEx while enhancing the feature set and Quality of Experience (QoE) we will be able to provide to our hotel customers and their guests.
OTTAWA, Ontario (PRWEB) March 23, 2022
NetExperience, creator of the first end-to-end WLAN software and service compatible with Telecom Infra Project (TIP) OpenWiFi, today announced it has been selected by Paris, France-based iBrowse to provide software services to hospitality customers with locations in France and the UK.
iBrowse selected the NetExperience/TIP OpenWiFi solution to propose as the next generation solution for the thousands of hotels covered by its cloud-based WIFI access control and management system. This is driven by iBrowse’ commitment to open systems, the ability to “mix and match” access points from different vendors, and competitive pricing. iBrowse also selected access points from Edgecore and Actiontec for the initial deployments. The combinations of NetExperience and TIP OpenWiFi means that hotels can offer superior WiFi coverage – 1 AP per room is economically feasible for all hotels!
“We are very pleased to support iBrowse in their deployment of TIP OpenWiFi in France,” said Bernard Herscovici, CEO of NetExperience. “We believe that open technologies are the future of all networking and look forward to demonstrating the power of TIP OpenWiFi to iBrowse and their customers. We are convinced they will see better performance, better support from both NetExperience and the TIP OpenWiFi community and lower costs.”
NetExperience’s Wi-Fi management and controller platform has been architected to support the Telecom Infra Project’s (TIP) OpenWiFi initiative which disaggregates the software from the hardware, allowing Wi-Fi deployments with multiple hardware vendor’s access points. One of the goals of this approach is to significantly decrease the cost of deploying Wi-Fi around the world, helping to close the digital divide both domestically and internationally.
“iBrowse prides itself on our ability to deploy cost effective hospitality solutions faster than our competitors and with enterprise grade quality and reliability,” said Jonathan Angel, Managing Director, iBrowse SARL. “The adoption of the NetExperience/TIP OpenWiFi solution is a potential game-changer for us as it further reduces our OPEx while enhancing the feature set and Quality of Experience (QoE) we will be able to provide to our hotel customers and their guests.”
NetExperience is leading the transition to a disaggregated Wi-Fi network. The NetExperience Cloud Management and Controller Platform is compatible with the three key components of the Telecom Infra Project Wi-Fi architecture: CloudSDK, certified open source Access Point software and compatible Access Point hardware. NetExperience is a contributor and co-manager of the TIP open source CloudSDK and Access Point software.
