XCellAir wins 2016 Wi-Fi NOW Award for ‘Best Wi-Fi Startup’

London, 26th October 2016: XCellAir™, the expert in Wi-Fi Quality of Experience (QoE), has been named as the ‘Best Wi-Fi Startup’ at the inaugural Wi-Fi NOW Awards. XCellAir was selected from a group of three finalists to win the prize at the Wi-Fi NOW Awards ceremony last night in London.

Presented as part of the Wi-Fi NOW event, XCellAir has been recognised for its commercial value and excellence in technology, management and execution. The awards aim to reward companies and organisations successfully promoting the advancement of Wi-Fi. Wi-Fi NOW represents service providers, tech vendors, carriers and regulators concerned with making Wi-Fi high-performing and high-quality.

Launched at Mobile World Congress 2015, XCellAir has reached several milestones over the last 18 months, including the general availability release of its XCellRANTM solution. XCellRAN is a scalable Wi-Fi assurance system for operators that ensures reliable, high performance Wi-Fi for residential and small business customers as well as for operators’ public Wi-Fi networks. XCellRAN is in a number of trial engagements with leading operators, including six Tier-1 MSOs and one Tier-1 MNO and was independently tested by CableLabs.

“This award shows just how far XCellAir has come in a short space of time. We are extremely proud to receive this award from Wi-Fi NOW that seeks to recognise outstanding achievement in the Wi-Fi industry,” said Todd Mersch, Co-Founder & EVP Sales & Marketing. “It’s also a positive step for the industry as a whole as we begin to see a shift in the way we approach Wi-Fi. XCellAir’s success proves that the need for Wi-Fi as a managed service is real and growing – and being recognised for our contributions to this is a real honour.”

In addition to winning the ‘Best Wi-Fi Startup’ award, XCellAir was also shortlisted in the ‘Best In-Home Wi-Fi Product’ category alongside Google, AirTies & Waoo, and Ignition Design Labs.
