The connected household needs the mobile fixed-convergence

Convergencia Latina

September 5, 2018
Hugo Ramos, Regional Chief Technologist of Arris, as well as other speakers of the CALA Executive Forum of Arris developed in Miami at the end of August, put in the center of the connected home the concept of mobile fixed convergence. They agreed that it is not only about reaching high speeds but about the uninterruption of the wireless connection of the house and with standards that allow the same quality of experience in each home environment.
TheWiFi devices in the home are dominant in quantity but the lack of standardization in certain layers of the OSI (Open System Interconnection) model makes it difficult to manage them. For example, while the physical layer has definitions of the different WiFi standards, the power or antenna gain are not defined, which makes it difficult to harmonize the user experience.
