Liberty Puerto Rico’s broadband subscribers will have access to Plume’s cloud services that bring unprecedented personalization and control to their smart homes, including flawless adaptive WiFi, robust cybersecurity, presence detection, and advanced user controls—all delivered through the highest-rated smart home services application, the HomePass app.
The collaboration includes the adoption and integration of OpenSync into Liberty Puerto Rico’s gateways provided by Adtran, CommScope, and Sercomm enabling subscribers’ services to be upgraded in the field instantaneously and at a massive scale. Furthermore, integration of Plume’s services ensures Liberty Puerto Rico will have access to Plume’s sophisticated, data-driven, and proactive support apps, services, and dashboards to bring unrivaled insight to enable proactive customer support and total experience management.
WOWfi powered by Plume HomePass offers an expanding suite of Smart Home Services that can be self-installed in minutes, enabling Liberty Puerto Rico to massively reduce customer support costs. Features include:
- Adapt™ - Adaptive WiFi uses sophisticated AI algorithms to intelligently monitor and optimize in-home networks to deliver flawless internet services to every device.
- Control™ - Advanced Access Controls (including age-appropriate content filters) provide unparalleled configuration options that range from viewing network access to granular visibility into what's happening on a user's network.
- Guard™ - AI-enhanced cybersecurity detects and blocks potential security threats, customizes content access, provides IoT anomaly detection and device quarantine, and eliminates unwanted ads.
- Sense™ - Uses existing WiFi-connected devices to provide whole-home motion awareness in real time for peace of mind and, among many use cases, provides alerts if there is motion when a customer is out of the home.
“For the first time at scale, broadband subscribers in Puerto Rico will have access to unparalleled choice and flexibility,” said Plume’s Regional Vice President of Sales in Latin America, Esteban Arias. “This partnership in Puerto Rico with LLA fuels our global expansion, where service providers must have access to the latest cloud- and AI-driven technologies to deliver new digital experiences at the highest quality and scale.”
