Nokia announced the completion of the acquisition of Unium, a Seattle-based software company that specializes in solving complex wireless networking problems for use in mission-critical and residential Wi-Fi applications. (See: Nokia Announces Acquisition of Unium To Bolster WiFi Portfolio.)
Nokia had announced the acquisition of Unium last month in an effort to bolster its home WiFi solutions. Embedded Unium intelligent Wi-Fi software and machine-learning algorithms learn the specific capabilities and performance of each device in the home, creating fingerprints that help optimize connections and deliver a tailored, exceptional customer experience. The company had showcased the solution in the recently concluded Mobile World Congress.
Unium’s software will be embedded into Nokia’s Wi-Fi portfolio to provide operators with a plug-and-play intelligent mesh Wi-Fi solution that is easy to install and constantly optimizes in-home Wi-Fi connections through self-learning and self-healing capabilities. Unium will operate as part of Nokia’s Fixed Networks business group.
