ARRIS HomeAssure™ to Support Multi-AP for Wi-Fi CERTIFIED EasyMesh™
Certification and protocol for multi-AP networks to improve Wi-Fi® management and performance

SUWANEE, Ga., June  11, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- ARRIS International plc (NASDAQ: ARRS) today announced that its HomeAssure whole-home Wi-Fi solution will support the Wi-Fi Alliance® Wi-Fi CERTIFIED EasyMesh™ program, based on the  Multi-Access Point (AP) specification. ARRIS will submit compliant products for Wi-Fi CERTIFIED EasyMesh certification—enabling advanced Wi-Fi® performance features like extender configuration, client steering and Wi-Fi analytics in a multi-vendor home network.

ARRIS contributed to the development of the Multi-AP specification. Multi-AP serves as the foundational protocol in the recently announced Wi-Fi EasyMesh certification. The new standard enables compatible gateways and extenders to communicate with each other regardless of the manufacturer. Multi-AP enables simplified installation, enhanced Wi-Fi monitoring and management in the home. ARRIS HomeAssure adds the essential intelligence for automated network optimization on top of the monitoring and control mechanisms provided by Multi-AP.

"ARRIS's contributions to Multi-AP and commitment to Wi-Fi CERTIFIED EasyMesh are enabling a new generation of devices to communicate seamlessly with one another through multiple access points in the home," said Charles Cheevers, CTO, CPE Products, ARRIS. "HomeAssure with Wi-Fi EasyMesh supports plug and play installation, intelligent Wi-Fi optimization and Wi-Fi management capabilities across ARRIS's own APs as well as those from other vendors. The platform demonstrates ARRIS's standards-based strategy for home networking, and ultimately creates more retail choices for consumers and greater vendor diversity for service providers."
