Orange France uses SoftAtHome's Wifi'ON software for new Wi-Fi 6 booster

Monday 19 April 2021 | 10:12 CET | News
French-based software developer SoftAtHome said that its Wifi'ON software tool has been selected by Orange to develop the Wi-Fi 6 booster launched by the operator on 08 April, which combines the functions of a router and a Wi-Fi extender. The Wifi'ON product, already part of the Livebox software platform, guarantees interoperability between different generations of chipset supporting the Wi-Fi 5 and Wi-Fi 6 standards. This has enabled Orange to offer customers the flexibility to upgrade to Wi-Fi 6 while keeping their existing broadband equipment (Livebox 4/Livebox 5).
