As the most widely deployed provider of Wi-Fi Mesh solutions to service providers around the globe, AirTies supplies extenders, set-top boxes, apps, and cloud-based performance management software that enable ISPs to provide a managed Wi-Fi Mesh solution for their subscribers. Cirrent provides a Wi-Fi connection management solution for connected products, enabling customers to easily connect products to their home Wi-Fi network automatically and securely. Companies making connected products use Cirrent's solution to improve the customer experience, reduce support costs and returns, and increase security. Cirrent's platform provides connected product companies with Wi-Fi onboarding, product lifecycle management, and tools for ongoing support.

Through Cirrent's partnerships with network operators, ZipKey products connect to the cloud automatically in more than 67 million homes. ZipKey-enabled set-top boxes and Wi-Fi extenders will make setting up a new Wi-Fi device on the mesh network simple for consumers: all they have to do is plug it in. In addition, service providers that support ZipKey will have an option to use it to provision AirTies' Mesh extenders and set-top boxes.    

"We are constantly looking for ways to enhance the in-home Wi-Fi experience for service providers, and that includes working with exceptional partners like Cirrent," said Philippe Alcaras, CEO, AirTies. "By partnering with Cirrent to support automatic Wi-Fi provisioning of IoT devices, we will be able to simplify installation for today's super-connected homes."

Rob Conant, CEO of Cirrent, stated, "Consumers demand simplicity. ZipKey-enabled products from AirTies and consumer electronics companies are secure and easy to use: customers plug them in and they automatically connect to the cloud with no user intervention. This is the kind of delightful user experience that leading network service providers aspire to deliver to their subscribers."

Cirrent and Airties are demoing the new capabilities at the AirTies booth at Broadband World Forum from October 24-26, 2017 in Messe, Berlin.
