ISTANBUL and AUSTIN, Texas, Dec. 13, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- AirTies, the most widely deployed provider of managed Wi-Fi Mesh solutions to global service providers, announced today has opened a new R&D center in Austin, Texas, including a new test home that replicates real-world usage of in-home Wi-Fi to support customers in North America.
Unlike traditional Wi-Fi, which relies on a single Wi-Fi Access Point (AP) on a home gateway/router, AirTies' Managed Mesh Solution uses multiple Mesh Extenders to create an intelligent Mesh Wi-Fi network throughout consumers' homes to deliver fast and consistent, whole-home Internet coverage. With operations around the globe, AirTies provides premium in-home Wi-Fi solutions to leading international service providers, such as Atlantic Broadband, Frontier, Midco, Orange, Singtel, Sky (SKY Q in the UK; Germany; Italy; and New Zealand), Swisscom, Vodafone, and many others.
AirTies noted that it has signed undisclosed contracts with additional service providers in North America, prompting this additional investment in the R&D facility. In addition, long-time AirTies executive, Mujdat Pakkan, EVP of Customer Programs, has relocated to oversee the new Austin facility.
"We're very excited to open our first R&D center outside of Europe in order to support the growing market opportunity in North America," said Philippe Alcaras, CEO of AirTies. "Austin's central location and pool of incredible, high-tech talent made it a very appealing choice for us. Looking ahead, we expect North American Internet and TV service providers to drive significant business for us, and this facility is built with them in mind."
In addition to an R&D office, AirTies test home in Austin will support automated in-home Wi-Fi testing using the company's AirBot system. AirBots are robots that can be controlled remotely to travel on tracks throughout a home carrying various Wi-Fi devices to conduct various real-world use tests in a multi-floor dwelling.

AirTies' international headquarters and R&D centers are in Turkey, and the company has other R&D offices in the UK and Greece, along with other offices in the United States (Sunnyvale, CA), and China. With AirTies, service providers can seize new opportunities to improve customer satisfaction, drive incremental revenue, and differentiate with new classes of premium Wi-Fi services.
