Major Tier-1 Deploys Benu Networks For North American Community Wi-Fi

Benu Networks announced today that a major North American MSO has deployed their solution for Community Wi-Fi deployments. In addition, Benu is in lab trials at two North American service providers.

Benu’s Community Wi-Fi solution future proofs the operator’s network to support a Virtual CPE application where the home network is bridged to the operators cloud for enhanced broadband service delivery in a tightly coupled Managed Over The Top (OTT) architecture.

The public cloud-based services market is expected to exceed $180B by 2015. Benu’s solutions offers fixed and mobile operators a scalable, access-independent real-time subscriber management platform that changes the paradigm from competing on speed and price to enabling revenue-generating public and private cloud-based services at the edge of the IP network.

“As service providers have reached a maturity with regard to Internet services particularly High Speed Data, operators need a platform that will enable them to seamlessly offer next generation cloud-based services in an agile way,” said Troy Dixler, Executive Vice President of Marketing at Benu Networks.

Wireless LAN market revenues are forecast to exceed $11 billion in 2017, nearly 50 percent greater than 2012 revenues. Emerging trends expected to drive this growth include deployment of Service Provider Wi-Fi (SP Wi-Fi), the 802.11ac upgrade cycle, cloud-managed WLAN, consumer video over Wi-Fi, and the Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) trend.
