11ac Upgrade vs Retrofit

11ac Upgrade vs Retrofit

For accelerating installs and improving the IPTV business case with a reusable technology, many IP Set Top Boxes now include an integrated 11ac option. While the benefits are abundant, pricing for these high-end STBs can land you well north of $150. This poses a quandary between those progressive individuals desiring to harness the latest technology with those closely watching the bottom line.

With this dilemma along with the less than stellar IPTV business case in mind, AirSonics developed a cost-efficient 11ac upgrade which enables practically every un-networked STB with the latest Wi-Fi protocol. At a mere $34, you could deliver the same 11ac performance on 5 existing un-networked STBs for the same price of purchasing one new integrated 11ac STB.

With this cost-efficient, logical, and compelling InstaFi alternative available, you may want to reconsider a potentially difficult conversation with your CFO of convincing him to strand the company's existing STB investment in favor of a retrofit approach to buy new STBs at over a $100 cost delta for each. We're just sayin' ....

Have a subscriber with… a sketchy Xbox connection…a new desktop where running cable isn’t feasible…devices like Roku which do not support DFS channels? InstaFi works with Consumer Electronics (CE) devices as well.
