Once famous for its simplicity, Wi-Fi has gotten increasingly complex, with many spectrum bands, (2.4 GHz, two bands of 5 GHz, 6 GHz & more to come) new topologies (e.g. Mesh), a diverse mix of devices, applications, and use cases, each requiring varied needs of speed, bandwidth, latency, etc. This has made managing even simple home Wi-Fi very difficult for the average consumer.
In this podcast I talk to Bill McFarland, CTO of Plume on how managed Wi-Fi works, how it can solve the challenge of managing Wi-Fi networks, and what role AI has in making all that possible.
