Minim Reaches 100,000 Active Minim Intelligent Networks (MINs)

Networking innovator extends motosync access to modem customers, fueling growth of user base

 

Manchester, NH - (NewMediaWire) - August 24, 2022 -  Minim, Inc. (NASDAQ: MINM), the creator of intelligent networking products under the Motorola brand, today announces the achievement of a new milestone as the company’s cloud-managed solution, the motosync app powered by Minim, is now active on over 100,000 Minim Intelligent Networks (MINs)1. A trio of recent network enhancements to the software, including freemium access for Motorola modem customers, has fueled the sustained growth and activation of MINs. Reaching this goal ahead of schedule marks a major step in the company’s software-first strategy. 

 

Sustaining 100,000 active MINs signals a major milestone in the company’s strategy to become a leading force in network management software. The active networks running the company’s software serve as a proof point that the motosync app powered by Minim resonates with its user base by providing an approachable, intuitive interface that helps them do more and live better with connectivity.  

“I’m incredibly proud of the Minim team for reaching this ambitious goal ahead of schedule,” said Minim Chief Executive Officer Mehul Patel. “Our mission at Minim has always been to help people do more and live better with connectivity - we are thrilled that over 100,000 MINs around the world are enabling our customers to achieve this.” 

This achievement follows recent software updates now available to motosync app users, including personalized WiFi Optimization for their environment, cutting-edge WPA3 encryption and freemium app access that offers onboarding and live support for Motorola modem devices.

PERSONALIZED WIFI OPTIMIZATION

The motosync app now enables users to choose settings that optimize their connection based on the size of their dwelling and the number of neighboring networks. The new WiFi Optimization tool automatically adjusts users’ channel widths for peak network performance based on three pre-set selections:

  • Single Occupant Home / Office - Designed for users in large dwellings and little to no neighboring connections
  • Townhome / Small Office Building - Designed for users in smaller dwellings and a few neighboring connections 
  • Apartment / Large Office Building - Designed for users in multi-unit dwellings and several neighboring connections

WPA3 ENCRYPTION

The recent updates also enable users to activate WPA3 Encryption, providing more secure password and data encryption and enhanced protection against cyberattacks. Enabling this advanced security setting not only provides stronger cybersecurity, but also expedites the onboarding of smart home devices to WiFi networks by allowing users to simply scan a QR code. Currently available for Motorola MH7600, Q11 and Q14 users, access to WPA3 Encryption for further Motorola intelligent networking devices will roll out at a later date. 

MODEM SUPPORT GUIDE AND LIVE CHAT

Finally, Motorola modem customers now have freemium access to use the motosync app for device onboarding, in-app chat support and in-app shopping. Designed to streamline the networking process for cable modem users, the Modem Support Guide enables app users to set up their device through Minim’s patented onboarding process. By simply scanning the QR code underneath their Motorola intelligent networking device, the details of their Motorola cable modem will automatically be uploaded to the app. Modem customers can also seek assistance within motosync through in-app chat support, connecting them to a networking specialist in under one minute. Additional access to the Motorola Network shop within the app offers a convenient way for Motorola modem customers to shop for their next network upgrade. 

“We are so excited to expand access to the motosync app to Motorola modem customers,” said Minim Vice President of Software Engineering Lakshmi Kadiyala. “Our top priority at Minim is to provide our user base with frequently updated software that offers an intuitive experience while protecting their personal networks; these updates reflect our commitment to that mission.” 

The updates to the motosync app, powered by Minim have already been distributed to Motorola intelligent networking device customers. For more information about Minim and its software solutions, visit www.minim.com
