Decoupling gains traction

Back in the summer of 2021, we addressed the topic of decoupling, which is now also gaining traction in Switzerland. More and more providers are relying on the simplicity of modems without routers/WiFi and are separating the access network from the home network. This brings significant strategic and operational advantages. In addition, your customers can benefit from the latest products and increased network stability.

WiFi is a differentiator for service providers who understand the needs

Providers who understand their customers' needs and home environment and can offer a solution accordingly have an advantage. In addition to a WiFi service platform such as Plume, this includes a selection of carrier-class WiFi hardware that is tailored to the customer's needs in terms of performance, design and price.

BN currently recommends working with the most cost-effective WiFi5 for price-sensitive customers and with WiFi6E devices for premium customers, as WiFi6 is already reaching the end of its life cycle. Due to the current dynamics of delivery terms, we would also like to advise against large orders with several month delivery terms as well as from building up high stock levels and recommend you to purchase the required products directly from our warehouse.

Our new WiFi product portfolio from Heights

BN now offers the innovative WiFi routers and WiFi extenders from Heights. The products from Heights are based on a so-called «open platform based containers» architecture. This allows new services to be implemented and managed via the cloud in the shortest possible time. They also feature the latest technology with WiFi6E and 2.5G/10G, Ethernet interfaces and are OpenSync and "Matter" capable. These products can be deployed as WiFi mesh or controlled via the Plume Cloud.
