Homegrown telecom equipment maker HFCL Wednesday said it will integrate artificial intelligence (AI) into its entire IO products portfolio in partnership with Aprecomm, an AI-powered Wi-Fi analytics technology provider.

With this, HFCL’s IO products will come with AI-powered network analytics to enhance experience for network service providers as well as end-users.

With AI-powered analytics, HFCL’s wireless solutions will be able to monitor customer experience in real time and calibrate Wi-Fi network through its cloud management platform cNMS.

The automatic network optimization in real-time is achieved using Aprecomm’s VWE AI engine duly integrated in all HFCL IO Wi-Fi products.

Network operators and administrators, meanwhile, will gain access to a dashboard covering network parameter analytics such as event analysis, deployment assist, measure user index, measure user experience through correlation, insights, and others.

The telecom equipment company revealed that it integrated Aprecomm’s Evolv engine in PM-WANI deployments. HFCL said it plans to offer this AI solution to its existing customer for over 100,000 existing deployments and plans to make it available for all its new customers by default.

“Integration of Aprecomm’s AI-powered solutions to our platform enables HFCL to offer enhanced user experience with added reliability and security to our customers. This partnership will help us to build resilient networks for people worldwide in all kinds of deployments. We are looking forward to expand this integration to even our switching portfolio,” said Mahendra Nahata, Managing Director, HFCL.

“Having reliable Internet connectivity has become extremely essential in today’s world. Programs like PM-WANI are driving us closer to this dream. Network Intelligence and Self-Management will play vital roles with this Increased Connectivity. We are very pleased to partner with HFCL and bring this intelligence to their Wi-Fi portfolio and beyond”, added Pramod Gummaraj, Co-Founder and CEO, Aprecomm.
