Orange France Deploys Eco-Conscious Speed Test with SoftAtHome

Eco-Friendly Speed Testing to Ensure New LiveBox 7 Performance


PARIS, France – February 21, 2024 – In an innovative move in 2023, Orange France launched the LiveBox 7, its latest home gateway with enhanced performance and eco-friendly features capable of delivering ultra-fast internet speeds up to eight Gbps for businesses. Leveraging Wi-Fi 6E and SoftAtHome’s Wifi’ON, the LiveBox 7 supports multiple devices across its three frequency bands. To validate these high-speed claims, SoftAtHome has engineered an eco-conscious speed test.

This new speed test serves at least four crucial functions:

  • It verifies the availability of the promised bandwidth, ranging from 0.4 Gbps to 5 Gbps for consumers and up to 8 Gbps for businesses.

  • Customer care teams can initiate remote speed tests, streamlining the diagnostic process.

  • Subscribers can run speed tests from the Orange et moi mobile App, encouraging self-service and reducing the need for call Centre support.

  • Collectively, these tests provide Orange France with comprehensive insights into network performance, allowing for proactive maintenance and enhanced service reliability.

SoftAtHome’s speed test technology is designed with the environment in mind, minimizing the network’s energy use while ensuring swift and accurate performance assessments in less than a second. This solution is already in use by various operators across Europe, Asia, and the Americas, demonstrating its global applicability and effectiveness.

Ollivier Courtel, Marketing Director, Connected Devices and Connectivity at Orange France, stated, “SoftAtHome stands as Orange’s preferred partner in fulfilling the commitments made to its valued connected home customers.”

“We are thrilled to partner with Orange France to deploy our carrier-grade speed test solution,” said David Viret-Lange, CEO of SoftAtHome. “This collaboration is a testament to our commitment to superior service experiences and operational efficiency. Our innovative tool ensures that Orange France can deliver the highest quality of service that their customers expect and deserve in 2024.”
