CommScope delivers Wi-Fi 6 connectivity to Ziply Fiber subscribers

Oct. 16, 2020
The company says its new Wi-Fi extenders and GPON gateways provide the reliability and coverage required for gigabit services.

CommScope this month announced that it has partnered with Ziply Fiber to deploy CommScope’s home networking platform to support Ziply Fiber subscribers’ bandwidth requirements.

Wi-Fi 6 is rapidly being integrated and deployed by service providers to keep up with their subscribers’ demands for bandwidth and better Wi-Fi. Wi-Fi 6 offers subscribers faster, more reliable connections in the home that align with the gigabit speeds being delivered today by leading edge service providers,” observes German Iaryczower, senior vice president, Broadband Home Solutions, CommScope.

He adds, “By using our innovative Wi-Fi 6 home networking solutions, service providers can now deliver the in-home connectivity experience their customers are expecting with their top-tier broadband services.” 

CommScope says its new X5 Wi-Fi Extenders support the latest Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) standard to provide the capacity, efficiency, coverage and performance required by today’s most demanding consumers. By deploying the X5 Extenders later this year, Ziply Fiber will increase the range and coverage of high-performance Wi-Fi in the home. For larger homes, CommScope notes that multiple X5 Extenders can mesh together to deliver full gig-speed Wi-Fi coverage.

“Ziply Fiber is deploying a modern, state-of-the-art network that is purpose-built for our subscribers’ needs,” remarks Harold Zeitz, CEO, Ziply Fiber. He continues, “In today’s world, with more of us working and learning from home than ever before, high-quality Wi-Fi has become an important component for families and businesses to stay connected. We are proud of the robust, redundant and reliable network that we have built specifically to handle these new demands for data and bandwidth. Having a partner who understands the importance of Wi-Fi 6 is imperative for us and that is exactly what we found in CommScope.”

In addition to X5 Extenders, Ziply Fiber will deploy CommScope’s NVG578LX GPON gateway when the product is launched later this year. The NVG578LX will be the next generation of the company's Wi-Fi 6 GPON home network gateways providing gigabit speeds for delivery of managed voice, video and data services.

CommScope says the improved connectivity of the NVG578LX will support Wi-Fi 6 and 2.5Gbps Ethernet LAN. Once deployed, the two devices will leverage the company's Wi-Fi EasyMesh network to operate collaboratively and provide an auto-optimizing Wi-Fi experience for subscribers, delivering on Ziply Fiber’s customer promise.

During this week's SCTE - ISBE Cable-Tec Expo 2020 virtual event, CommScope showcased its Wi-Fi 6 product line. Learn more.
