Plume, MediaTek announce cloud pre-integration



Plume Design, Inc. and MediaTek (TWSE: 2454) have announced pre-integration, testing and qualification of Plume Adaptive WiFiâ„¢ cloud control and management capabilities into a broad set of MediaTek platforms, the company said.

Original Design Manufacturers (ODMs) and Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) can now offer turn-key, cloud-managed, premium Wi-Fi to their ISP customers using MediaTek Systems-on-Chips (SoCs).

MediaTek SoC platforms enabled by the Plume Adaptive WiFiâ„¢ Agent can interoperate with both MediaTek and third party Wi-Fi SoC platforms through the Plume Adaptive WiFiâ„¢ Cloud – joining a multi vendor, cloud-controlled Wi-Fi network infrastructure rapidly being adopted by top tier ISPs. The Plume Adaptive WiFiâ„¢ solution is the only hardware agnostic, open platform control plane for Wi-Fi management and optimization that can work across a broad range of silicon and Customer Premise Equipment (CPE) hardware from multiple manufacturers.

The joint MediaTek — Plume solution includes the ability to upgrade already deployed CPEs incorporating certain MediaTek SoC platforms for connection to the Plume Cloud via firmware updates, enabling the ISPs to implement adaptive Wi-Fi via both new and existing hardware.

An ultra-compact, cost optimized and form-factor-ready dual-band Pod reference design incorporating the MediaTek chipsets MT7621A and MT7615D for dual-band 2×2 platform is available for licensing from Plume for both ISP and retail applications. Dual-band 4×4 (MT7621A and two of MT7615) and tri-band 2+2+4 (MT7621A+MT7615+MT7615D) configurations are also available and can be enabled easily for various products and applications.

Plume is the pioneer of Adaptive WiFiâ„¢, the world´s first self-optimizing Wi-Fi delivering the most reliable and consistent Internet experience to every corner of the home. Driven by the Plume Cloud, a massively scalable, cloud-based, open platform control plane, Plume offers the most advanced, resilient home Wi-Fi solution due to its ability to dynamically adapt and respond to changing network loads and interference.
