Nokia has on Tuesday, 9 July 2019, announced its plans to add a new beacon as well as several new features to its whole-home WiFi portfolio. 

The ‘Beacon 1’ is said to complement Nokia’s premium Beacon 3 solution, while new Intelligent Channel Selection, pre-pairing and bridging features help to simplify network setup and enhance the overall WiFi experience.

Nokia’s whole-home WiFi solution has been designed with the intention of improving user experience while reducing the time and complexity required to install and manage WiFi.  

The Beacon 1 is an entry-level, whole-home mesh WiFi system for consumers looking for great performance at a reasonable price. Like Nokia’s premium Beacon 3 solution, the Beacon 1 includes Intelligent Channel Selection which automatically identifies the best possible WiFi channel for each device to ensure an uninterrupted WiFi experience. It also includes Nokia’s mesh capability that creates a WiFi network with zero dead spots.


Sandra Motley, President of Nokia’s Fixed Networks business group, says, “having a high-speed, uninterrupted WiFi experience in the home is becoming essential for both operators and consumers alike.  Operators want to eliminate the 30-50 percent of customer calls they receive due to poor WiFi performance while consumers want a solution that is easy to install, dependable and can deliver on the speeds they are paying for.  Nokia’s enhanced in-home Wi-Fi portfolio addresses all of these requirements, providing a fast, ultra-reliable mesh WiFi solution that is unmatched in the industry today.”

The new Nokia WiFi Beacon 1 whole-home WiFi system is available for purchase on Amazon.com and retails for $129.99.
