PR Newswire

ISTANBUL, Oct. 18, 2018 /PRNewswire/ – In advance of the of SCTE Cable-Tec Expo®  and Broadband World Forum conferences next week, AirTies, the most widely deployed provider of managed Wi-Fi Mesh solutions to global service providers, announced plans to make its managed Wi-Fi solution available for devices running the RDK software platform in Q1 2019. The company also disclosed that a Tier 1 operator expects to deploy AirTies’ software on RDK-based CPE in the coming year.

“We’ve seen significant interest in RDK from service providers around the globe in recent months,” said Philippe Alcaras, CEO of AirTies. “Operators want greater standardization and transparency, and RDK provides core technical functionality to make that easier. With this forthcoming integration, operators using RDK will easily be able to deploy AirTies’ Managed Wi-Fi Mesh software on their broadband CPE, and it will be deployed by a Tier 1 operator in the near future. Today’s announcement further demonstrates our commitment to continuous product innovation, and providing operators with more options to help them get Wi-Fi under control.” 

“AirTies is a recognized global leader for in-home Wi-Fi, and we are delighted that they have committed to making AirTies’ Managed Wi-Fi Mesh software run on the RDK platform for service providers,” said Steve Heeb, President and General Manager of RDK Management. “Since the RDK is an open source software platform for the connected home, improving the home Wi-Fi experience through new applications and analytics is of paramount importance.”

RDK software resides on the chipsets within CPE, below the application and services layer, and enables video and broadband providers to standardize certain technical functionality. The open source software provides a common interface to SoCs, acting as a kind of universal SoC adapter. Specifically, the RDK software solution provides a common method to manage various broadband functions on gateways, such as home-networking interfaces, routing, device management, telemetry, and more.

AirTies’ software solution will be deployed atop the RDK software layer. AirTies’ software is portable across chipset and CPE vendors as a firmware update, enabling operators to better manage in-home Wi-Fi and make gateway Wi-Fi smarter. The software automatically “steers” consumers’ devices (laptops, tablets, smartphones, game systems, smart home devices, etc.) to the best available channel and band (2.4GHz and 5GHz), based on real-time network conditions in a home. It also includes access to AirTies’ Remote Manager, a cloud-based Wi-Fi optimization software suite that provides real-time and historical performance data and analytics to proactively manage the consumer in-home Wi-Fi experience. Notably, operators can experience these benefits on a single gateway deployment, or in homes with Wi-Fi Mesh extenders.  

AirTies enables service providers with solutions to fix their subscribers’ in-home Wi-Fi issues and create premium Wi-Fi services. More than 25 million homes are powered by AirTies’ technologies across more than 50 service providers across 4 different continents. 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.

At the upcoming SCTE Cable-Tec Expo in Atlanta from October 22-25, AirTies will be demonstrating its Managed Wi-Fi Solution, Mesh Extenders, and Mesh enabled set-top boxes on the show floor in booth 2130. At the Broadband World Forum in Berlin from October 23-25, AirTies will be at stand D109. Additional information about AirTies is available at More about RDK is available at

Millicast Disrupts Live-Streaming Industry With Real-Time CDN

Millicast Disrupts Live-Streaming Industry With Real-Time CDN

Broadcast video with sub-second latency to audiences of any size using Millicast

PR Newswire

LOS ANGELES, Oct. 17, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Xirsys, a WebRTC infrastructure provider, and CoSMo Software, a development company specializing in real-time solutions, announced today the launch of their joint service – Millicast. Millicast is a WebRTC-based real-time CDN, built for large-scale live streaming with sub-second latency.

Built to replace Adobe Flash (RTMP) for real-time streaming, Millicast is the first live-streaming CDN based on true end-to-end WebRTC and reduces the latency from publisher to viewer to less than 500 milliseconds. Publishers will no longer have to compromise and adapt to legacy technology at the cost of added latency.

By using standards-based web and internet technology, Millicast allows publishers of live content to reach all modern browsers and devices without the need for any plugin, player, SDKs or client-side framework.

Unlike usual WebRTC solutions which are designed for small audiences and point-to-point adaptation to network conditions, Millicast is uniquely engineered for cascading streams over its infrastructure to provide scalability, reliability and quality for real-time streams even in bad network conditions. With a presence that covers all major geographic regions, companies can now broadcast across the globe in less than 500 milliseconds.

By default, Millicast broadcasts in multiple resolutions for adaptivity, eliminating the need for costly transcoding. Millicast’s Smart Stream Manager™ will automatically optimize the stream received by the viewer depending on the device’s capacity, available bandwidth and network quality. A mix of simulcast encoding, SVC codecs and other state-of-the-art technologies are also being used under the hood. Companies who join Millicast’s partner program will have early access to new features such as on-the-fly recording of streams, HLS fallback, support for Chromecast, server-side ad insertion and more.

“We believe it is not only the sole viable replacement to Flash today for industries that require true real-time without compromise – auctions, gambling, sports, AR/VR, gaming, live interactive adult shows – but it will quickly become the de facto standard for live streaming altogether,” said Dr. Alexandre Gouaillard, CEO of CoSMo Software. “The current file-based, HTTP-as-a-transport technology stack is showing its limitations, as shown by several initiatives toward ‘ultra-low latency’ still only lowers the latency to several seconds. Or the move away from HTTP to ‘better’ transport protocols (SRT by Huawei and Wowza). None of these can compete with WebRTC today, especially with the system-level optimizations that Millicast benefits from.”

Richard Blakely, CEO of Xirsys, stated, “I know real-time video is the next big thing. It wasn’t too long ago society relied on newspapers for their information and now we expect a constant, real-time feed. Soon, we’ll also want to see each other all of the time, truly connected. I believe Millicast is the platform that makes this possible.”

Millicast is available to the public through the website – More details on Millicast pricing can be found here –
