Midco launches rock-solid in-home wireless powered by Plume HomePass and OpenSync
Dec 7, 2022
Sioux Falls, SD: Midco® is enhancing the home internet experience by introducing Midco Wi-Fi powered by Plume HomePass®. This next-gen Wi-Fi service is fueled by cloud, artificial intelligence, and open-source technology to deliver even faster, smarter, and more reliable Wi-Fi experiences throughout the home.
Midco Wi-Fi leverages an advanced SaaS Experience Platform, which includes OpenSync™—the fastest growing open-source framework for the smart home—in conjunction with Plume’s HomePass, a suite of intelligent smart home services. The recently updated HomePass mobile app provides access to:
- Adapt™, which continually optimizes the home network to deliver greater Wi-Fi speed, coverage, and capacity throughout the home, ensuring a seamless user experience on every device
- Control™, which provides visibility into what's happening on a user's network, allowing them to set guest and child access controls, profiles, content filters, and even pause the internet
- Guard™, which provides robust device protection and cybersecurity including ad and malware blocking. This service halts suspicious activity and isolates any compromised devices
- Sense™, which uses Wi-Fi-connected devices and access points to provide whole-home awareness through motion detection for added peace of mind while away from home
Midco is positioned to rapidly scale its new Wi-Fi offering across its customer base thanks to Plume’s cloud-driven platform featuring OpenSync technology. With support for a wide range of hardware devices and the ability to leverage existing Consumer Premises Equipment (CPE) already in the field, Plume’s technology partnership supports Midco’s sustainability efforts, offers expanded hardware choices, and allows for accelerated service delivery to subscribers.
“Our goal has been to bring the industry’s best-managed Wi-Fi solution to our customers,” said Tom McAdaragh, Midco President & COO. “As customers continue to demand higher speeds and the number of connected devices grows, home networks demand a flexible, adaptive Wi-Fi solution. Midco Wi-Fi is just that. It’s your home Wi-Fi network, designed to keep you connected and put the power in your hands.”
“Plume is extremely proud to help Midco deliver an unparalleled internet experience by laying the foundation of fast, reliable, secure, and adaptive whole-home Wi-Fi, and layering highly personalized user and guest controls, AI-driven cybersecurity, and more on top,” said Erdem Mustafa, Plume’s Vice President, Sales. “In partnership with Plume, Midco has introduced a market-leading solution that, through the trifecta of cloud, AI, and open-source, will keep pace with the ever-changing needs of the modern consumer.”
