WaveGuide provides a simple, intuitive workflow, allowing any field technician to quickly install  — and, more importantly, certify — that a new Wi-Fi install will provide the best premium service for customers who are increasingly viewing content on multiple platforms, for more hours, connecting and streaming over Wi-Fi. Prior to WaveGuide, a marketplace gap existed and unreliable in-home streaming led to repeat service calls and customer care complaints, making it challenging for operators to address the rise in Wi-Fi usage and compete to offer the fastest and most reliable service.

The business benefits of WaveGuide go beyond improvements in customer satisfaction. By enabling a proper and more complete service installation and a faster more reliable workflow process, WaveGuide makes Wi-Fi commissioning efficient and cost-effective:
