Plume® and MediaTek Announce Cloud Pre-Integration, Wi-Fi Pod Reference Design


Plume Adaptive WiFi cloud control agent comes pre-integrated into MediaTek Wi-Fi SOC platforms for home gateways, extenders, and Pods; accelerates time-to-market for cloud managed Wi-Fi implementation. 

LAS VEGAS, NV — January 9, 2018 — At the CES 2018, Plume Design, Inc. and MediaTek (TWSE: 2454) announced pre-integration, testing and qualification of Plume Adaptive WiFiTM cloud control and management capabilities into a broad set of MediaTek platforms. Original Design Manufacturers (ODMs) and Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) can now offer turn-key, cloud-managed, premium Wi-Fi to their ISP customers using MediaTek Systems-on-Chips (SoCs).

MediaTek SoC platforms enabled by the Plume Adaptive WiFiTM Agent can interoperatewith both MediaTek and third party Wi-Fi SoC platforms through the Plume Adaptive WiFiTM Cloud - joining a multi vendor, cloud-controlled Wi-Fi network infrastructure rapidly being adopted by top tier ISPs. The Plume Adaptive WiFiTM solution is the only hardware agnostic, open platform control plane for Wi-Fi management and optimization that can work across abroad range of silicon and Customer Premise Equipment (CPE) hardware from multiple manufacturers.

“Our ISP customers globally are always looking for higher performance and smarter Wi-Fi solutions”, said Alan Hsu, General Manager of Home Smart Device Business Unit, MediaTek.

“By collaborating with Plume on this new, powerful adaptive Wi-Fi eco-system, we deliver best-in-class products and solutions to our partners and customers.”

The joint MediaTek – Plume solution includes the ability to upgrade already deployed CPEs incorporating certain MediaTek SoC platforms for connection to the Plume Cloud via firmware updates, enabling the ISPs to implement adaptive Wi-Fi via both new and existing hardware.

An ultra-compact, cost optimized and form-factor-ready dual-band Pod reference design incorporating the MediaTek chipsets MT7621A and MT7615D for dual-band 2x2 platform is available for licensing from Plume for both ISP and retail applications. Dual-band 4x4 (MT7621A and two of MT7615) and tri-band 2+2+4 (MT7621A+MT7615+MT7615D) configurations are also available and can be enabled easily for various products and applications.

“We welcome MediaTek into the Plume Adaptive WiFiTM ecosystem”, said Aman Singla, co-founder and software lead at Plume. “Bringing disruptive innovations to market faster than others is perhaps the biggest competitive advantage for leading ISPs today. Our collaboration with MediaTek is a key ingredient in enabling an open eco-system, innovating at the consumer pace, and implementing at carrier scale”, Singla concluded.
