ROYAL OAK – Have a large home that gets spotty Wi-Fi coverage. Xfinity has you covered with its xFi Pods, small adaptive pods that plug into any electrical outlet, pair with either the xFi Wireless Gateway or the xFi Advanced Gateway, and help customers extend reliable WiFi coverage to hard to reach areas of their home.
Xfinity’s Rob Ponto explains how they work in this segment of M2 TechCast. In short, xFi Pods work with the xFi Gateways to continuously monitor and optimize WiFi connections to each device. Powered by a cloud-based, remote management platform, xFi Pods evaluate the WiFi environment to ensure devices are using the ideal bands and WiFi channel. In addition, xFi Pods self-monitor their performance, and can “heal” themselves to deliver the best WiFi experience for each device.
