Canada’s Westman Communications is first to use vendor’s new product set
Hitron Technologies, a maker of cable modems and other types of consumer premises equipment and software, said Canada’s Westman Communications Group is the first operator to roll out the vendor’s new whole-home WiFi product set.
Following a two-month trial, Westman, based in Manitoba, will deploy Hitron’s “Unleash Your WiFi” solution, which includes the vendor’s gateway and MoCA-to-WiFi extenders that work in concert with Hitron’s EasyInstall and MyHitron apps. EasyInstall helps technicians setup the whole-home platform, while MyHitron is designed to help users manage and troubleshoot their home WiFi networks.
Westman is also using OptiMy, a cloud-based machine learning and big data analytics system from Hitron, which is showing off its new wares at this week’s SCTE•ISBE Cable-Tec Expo in Denver.
Westman joins a growing group of cable ops that have launched premium whole-home WiFi products.
“Our customers demand reliable and fast Wi-Fi coverage in every corner of their homes. At Westman, the demarcation point is our customers’ fingertips. It’s our company’s mandate to deliver this experience in the most efficient, customer friendly and cost-effective manner,” Jeffrey DeSarno, Westman’s chief technology officer, said in a statement.
