ADB introduces Springbok and Impala as a quick path for Operators to start offering Wi-Fi 7 to subscribers

Two cost-effective Wi-Fi 7 solutions being a perfect fit for telcos’ single and dual box market strategy

06 December 2023 – Geneva, Switzerland: ADB, the global provider of Enterprise and In-home solutions for Video and Telco operators, expanded its Wi-Fi 7 product portfolio with two additional models, Springbok and Impala. Both models serve as a cost-effective alternative for telecommunications operators aiming to quickly provide their subscribers with the full benefits of Wi-Fi 7 technology, primarily offering faster speeds and lower latency in wireless connections compared to the previous generation Wi-Fi.

The main differentiating element between both products is their WAN interface for connection to the external operator network. Impala features a built-in 2.5 Gb GPON WAN interface, directly connecting the gateway to the fiber-optic network (single-box strategy), while Springbok is a solution utilizing a 2.5 Gb Ethernet port that connects to the internet through an external modem or ONT (dual-box strategy).

Operators can select the model that fits their deployment needs.

The excellent performance of ADB’s new products is the result of combining key innovations of the Wi-Fi 7 standard, including the 320 MHz ultra-wide channel, 4k-QAM modulation, Preamble puncturing, and Multi-Link Operation, along with ADB’s proven smart software, epiCentro®.

epiCentro® is ADB’s proprietary broadband middleware, unlocking enormous capabilities for residential subscribers and small & medium businesses (SMBs). Firstly, it includes the epiCentro® core that offers a solid foundation of cutting-edge Wi-Fi, networking, voice, management, and security features that can be tailored to the needs of operators and their subscribers.

Secondly, ADB has expanded epiCentro® with a range of additional packages that elevate the capabilities of ADB’s broadband products to a completely higher level. These extensions focus on:

Advanced Security: Providing continuous and comprehensive security for connected users, their devices, and the entire network, including the gateway.

Always-On Connectivity: Delivering uninterrupted internet connectivity through intelligent switching to a backup connection when needed.

Advanced Quality of Service: Ensuring the smooth functioning of the most critical services used by business customers and individual subscribers.

Enterprise Functionalities: Providing a set of specially enhanced features and tools for small and medium-sized businesses, ensuring that their communication, security, and productivity remain at the highest level.

With Springbok and Impala, powered by the Qualcomm® Tri-Band Wi-Fi 7 Immersive Home 3210 Platform, and equipped with the advanced capabilities of ADB’s epiCentro® software, operators can meet the needs of standard individual subscribers and offer a tailored solution for the requirements of business customers.

Furthermore, with each broadband CPE, ADB offers the i-CAN application, which, through an easy installation and configuration process, provides unparalleled control over the network for business owners and individual users.

“Springbok and Impala excellently complement our Wi-Fi 7 product lineup, serving as an optimal alternative to premium-class products such as our Cheetah and Jaguar. Thus, they provide a fast track for deploying a competitive offering with the latest generation solution in the market. We encourage operators to explore their capabilities, especially as we have significantly expanded the capabilities of our epiCentro® software powering our products.” – said Radek Piorek, Head of Broadband Product Group at ADB.

“Wi-Fi 7 ushers in an era of truly transformational wireless performance for broadband subscribers and we are honored to have the Qualcomm Immersive Home 3210 platform at the heart of the Wi-Fi 7 offerings ADB announced today. With a full suite of powerful next-gen Wi-Fi 7 features, it is a perfect solution for home and small business Wi-Fi systems to support today’s growing ecosystem of mobile, compute and XR devices.” – said Ganesh Swaminathan, vice president and general manager, Wireless Infrastructure and Networking, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc.
