XCellAir’s XCellRAN Solution Provides a Proof of Concept for CableLabs Carrier Wi-Fi Specifications

Wi-Fi QoE expert solution shows the viability of CableLabs gateway specifications in terms of RRM/SON functionality

SAN DIEGO--()--XCellAirTM, an expert in Wi-Fi Quality of Experience (QoE), today announced that its XCellRANTM solution demonstrated the viability of the CableLabs® Wi-Fi RRM and SON gateway management specification as part of an evaluation to define Wi-Fi radio resource management (RRM) requirements, and SON capabilities for MSOs.

“We’re proud to be working with CableLabs to help further its Wi-Fi RRM and SON work”

The CableLabs Wi-Fi RRM and SON work addresses the growing technical issues resulting from ever-greater network densification. This includes combatting poor Wi-Fi network performance and service quality in congested areas, and high levels of interference in close AP proximity environments. CableLabs’ effort combines education, vendor engagement and validation on behalf of the cable industry as well as technical specification definition.

“We’re proud to be working with CableLabs to help further its Wi-Fi RRM and SON work,” said Todd Mersch, EVP and co-founder, XCellAir. “Providing the proof of concept for CableLabs Wi-Fi RRM and SON requirements demonstrates our technical leadership and validates our approach to network best-practice. We look forward to advancing Wi-Fi optimisation capabilities for the benefit of Wi-Fi users in dense urban areas around the world.”
