Comtrend and New Garden Announce Strategic Partnership to Enable Mesh Wireless to Service Providers
Comtrend will release the world’s first VDSL Gateway, the VR-3060, with New Garden’s whole-home Mesh Wireless technology.
IRVINE, CA. September 14, 2017 – New Garden, a leading Wi-Fi Mesh Solution Provider, and Comtrend, a global supplier of advanced networking solutions, announced today a technology partnership to bring the latest whole-home Wireless technology to Service Providers worldwide.
New Garden’s patented adaptive roaming technology with cross-chipset interoperability is embedded in Comtrend’s flagship VDSL Gateway, the VR-3060. Together, the VR-3060 combines the best of wired and Wireless technology to meet the high bandwidth needs of consumers today.
Whole-home coverage and elimination of Wireless dead-spots remain an elusive goal of Service Providers deploying residential gateways today. Comtrend’s utilization of New Garden’s WiFigarden SDK in the VR-3060 creates a dynamic system to accomplish this for residences of all sizes. While the VR-3060’s 400mW High Power AC1600 (802.11ac) Wireless can satisfy many residences alone, the WiFigarden technology will allow additional satellite units to work seamlessly together, creating a powerful mesh solution.
The VR-3060 becomes the home’s first Wi-Fi Mesh node. This saves the user money, as commercial mesh kits usually start with three units, rather than starting with one and adding as needed. Additionally, these costly three-unit minimum solutions conflict with the gateway’s wireless, thus requiring the user to disable the gateway’s wireless.
“WiFigarden’s advanced technology creates a smart network that manages itself,” said Patrick Chen, Sales VP of New Garden. “Families want automatic and reliable Wireless coverage, not an app for a manual system of trial-and-error. This user-free solution is now available with WiFigarden.”
Frank Chuang, Vice President of Marketing for Comtrend adds, “We found the right solution for Service Providers. Since they choose and configure the home gateway, they’re essentially installing the central hub to their mesh Wireless solution. Unlike today’s 3rd party, excessively-expensive solutions, they’ve got it pre-installed, ready to expand as needed. This is how Service Providers stay ahead of the technology curve.”
New Garden’s WiFigarden Technology provides patented adaptive-roaming, continually tuning the Wireless parameters for a constant client connection. Compared to chipset-confined solutions, New Garden’s technology allows partners like Comtrend greater flexibility in its IC solutions.
