With the rise of the Internet of Things, the sheer amount of devices being connected around the home is putting significant demand on our local network. Not only this, but we expect each to work seamlessly without a drop in connection or speed to ensure we are able to have remote access wherever we are.
Federico Guillén, president of Alcatel-Lucent’s Fixed Access Business Line, said: “With the Internet of Things enabling an unprecedented number of objects to interact and share data, connected device shipments are expected to grow at a faster rate than smartphones and tablets over the next few years, placing huge demands on home Wi-Fi networks.”
