The new Livebox 5’s design targets Fibre users. As with previous versions, Orange has selected for the Livebox 5 SoftAtHome’s Connect’ON solution for an enriched online broadband experience. The home gateway is becoming a full service-delivery platform. Download speed has been doubled to 2 Gbps allowing multiple simultaneous usages within the home, while a 600Mbps upload speed future-proofs the connectivity solution for years to come.
The best user experience
Livebox 5 integrates SoftAtHome’s Wifi’ON to algorithmically select the best access point (gateway or repeater), the best frequency (2.4 GHz or 5GHz) and the best channel depending on the time of the day and what the end-user is doing at any given time. This smart connection method optimizes energy consumption, ensures the fastest possible internet connection, the highest quality TV and uninterrupted communications.
Eyes’ON improves the quality of customer experience for Livebox 5 users, thanks to fine-grained monitoring and a recommendation engine. The analytics bring a better understanding of customer environments and allows Orange’s teams to proactively improve and optimize customer services and their Quality of Experience.
“Our new Livebox is designed to offer the best services for our customers while reducing our carbon impact,” said Ollivier Courtel, head of home devices at Orange France. “SoftAtHome helped us fine integrate our sustainable development approach while ensuring our new Livebox 5 provides the smart Wi-Fi and performances our subscribers expect.”
“We are excited to contribute to the great experience Orange delivers to French customers,” added David Viret-Lange, CEO of SoftAtHome. “Working on sustainability within the Livebox 5 project made me especially proud, but we also provided a smarter Wi-Fi to improve bandwidth up to 40%.”
