Plume last week introduced its eponymous self-optimizing WiFi system for the home.
Plume adapts in real life to the different network demands made by various devices and ensures that each gets the fastest speeds possible, according to the company.
In essence, Plume is “treating WiFi as a cellular network, where each pod is kind of like a mini-cell site,” he explained. “That’s what’s clever about this.”
The traffic dynamics are different from those of cell networks, but allowing pods to collaborate on channel assignment to moving devices “starts to look like cell site hopping,” Jude said.
