Moreover, devolo Home Control adds plenty of Smart Home products and allows the integration of state-of-the-art products like Philips Hue or Amazon Echo. With two Fiber products, devolo also offers attractive solutions for implementing high-speed Internet via fiber optics. Last but not least, devolo Operator Solutions is nominated for the BBWF Award in the category ‘Best Wireless Broadband Innovation"!

OS WiFi Bridge: Scalable solution for UHD (4k) in Home distribution, great wireless coverage and services

The OS Wi-Fi Bridge works as a highly flexible and adaptable solution for realising a variety of services. As a multimedia hotspot, the OS WiFi Bridge provides users with an extensive Wi-Fi coverage at 1.734 Mbps due to its 4x4 MIMO technology, and enables triple play services including UHD distribution throughout the whole house - all made possible thanks to the device’s stable 5 GHz connection. The OS WiFi Bridge doubles as a cross-band repeater including ‘quality of service‘, which makes it an ideal solution for demanding setups with high bandwidth, including handling several services at once and a large number of mobile devices connected. Due to the OS WiFi Bridge’s scalability, it can be expanded with additional cross-band repeaters to realise even highly sophisticated installations. Thanks to the OS WiFi Bridge’s out-of-the-box setup, it can easily be operated by the customer. Remote servicing via TR-069 is possible.

Smart Home portfolio: Home Control integrates third-party devices

With the Smart Home portfolio ‘Home Control’, devolo Operator Solutions provides a tailored extension for the Home Networking range: The Z-Wave-based products offer all-round solutions for the three main applications: ‘security‘, ‘power management‘ and ‘comfort‘. At BBWF 2016, devolo Operator Solutions also presents new interfaces for the implementation of popular smart-home solutions by third-party developers. Not only is it possible to control the lighting system Philips Hue, but also the new voice-control system by Amazon Echo. Thanks to devolo’s expertise in the field of software development, they can even provide highly customized interfaces for existing systems.

First Fiber line-up: Fiber Termination Unit for self-installation

devolo will introduce two new Fiber products at the BBWF 2016. For the ideal application when using point-to-point connections and in Gigabit Passive Optical Network environments, devolo has developed a modular concept of a Fiber Termination Unit (FTU) and Optical Network Termination (ONT), which are physically separated from each other. Depending on the type of network, the OS Fiber Point is implemented as a PtP or a GPON variant. The OS Fiber Router provides four Gigabit Ethernet ports and high-end Wi-Fi with 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz. The device even supports CATV for integrating television. The single components can be easily assembled by the customer - which makes the FTTH roll-out much more cost-efficient. A remote servicing interface via TR-069 is already integrated.
