Edgecore Networks, a leading provider of traditional and open network solutions for enterprise, data centers, and telecommunication service providers, signed an Express Wi-Fi Channel Partner Agreement with Facebook Connectivity. Under the Channel Partner program, Facebook Connectivity will enable Edgecore Networks to provide onboarding, training, and technical support services to service providers that are interested in providing Express Wi-Fi. Edgecore Networks is now able to enhance Express Wi-Fi engagement with service providers and better serve the customers.
Express Wi-Fi is a platform developed by Facebook Connectivity that service providers can use to deliver fast, affordable and reliable internet access over Wi-Fi. Express Wi-Fi includes a comprehensive set of tools that enables service providers to build, grow and monetize their Wi-Fi businesses in a sustainable and scalable way, helping prevent an even greater digital divide, closing the remaining gaps in internet inclusion and creating new economic opportunities.
Edgecore Networks supplies Express Wi-Fi certified access points to service operators worldwide for their Express Wi-Fi deployments, with the latest deployments underway in South East Asia and South America.
“More than 3.5 billion people still don’t have internet access, fueling the digital divide,” said Dan Rabinovitsj, vice president for Facebook Connectivity. “With the Express Wi-Fi platform, we want to make it easier for internet service providers and mobile network operators to increase the availability of fast, affordable and reliable internet. Technology and channel partners such as Edgecore are critical to helping us achieve this goal, and we look forward to our continued work with Edgecore to expand global connectivity.”
Edgecore Networks currently has three Express Wi-Fi certified access points: ECW5211-L, ECWO5211-L, and OAP100 to cover indoor and outdoor deployments. Now, being a channel partner, Edgecore Networks is confident to expand the Express Wi-Fi footprint to more countries.
“With the full support of Facebook Connectivity, Edgecore Networks is able to provide premium Express Wi-Fi certified solutions over the world,” said TT Hsu, Vice President of Edgecore Networks. “Edgecore Networks will continue to bring more products to get certified under Express Wi-Fi program, including the Wi-Fi6/6E access points, to meet the network and deployment needs of various network operators and ISPs around the world to bring fast, secured and affordable internet access to the unserved and underserved markets.”
