Akamai has announced a new partnership with Plume that’s designed to accelerate the deployment of smart home services for broadband subscribers.
The partnership between the two companies gives Akamai’s entire global customer network, sales and go-to-market teams immediate access to Plume’s services platform to accelerate the deployment of new and highly personalised Smart Home Services for broadband subscribers.
The partnership also combines Akamai Security and Personalization Services (SPS) mobile security suite and real time threat intelligence with Plume’s Consumer Experience Management (CEM) Platform, comprising services and apps for residential internet control and security.
“Frost & Sullivan reports that consumers today expect a more advanced level of security, control, speed, and personalization from many ISPs and cable operators, requiring providers to gain a more holistic view of subscribers’ home networks and a set of tools to find and address any emerging issues proactively and preemptively,” said Anirudh Bhaskaran, Senior Industry Analyst at Frost & Sullivan.
Akamai SPS enables turnkey solutions targeted at Communications Service Providers (CSPs) and Mobile Network Operators (MNO) for their customers in the residential and small- and mid-sized business (SMB) markets. Plume’s CEM Platform and bundle of smart services are designed to equip CSPs to deliver an advanced layer of subscriber personalisation and security, with optimised Wi-Fi performance and control over their internet services and applications.
