More and more operators are realizing that high-performance access solutions and high-performance home networking are two sides of the same coin: Only in combination they can provide a perfect user experience and increase customer retention. At Gigabit Access 2019, you will learn how devolo can support you with solutions that combine the best of both worlds - the latest generation of powerline communications and perfect Mesh WiFi.
1. Why is home networking such an important topic at the Gigabit Access?
Because the Internet of Things is moving into our homes, making it as important to talk about home networks as it is to talk about the best access technology: dead zones are no longer tolerable. Therefore, we need to talk about a solution, that can secure the availability of WiFi or wired Internet access while at the same time it sets customers free from bothering with setup and maintenance.
2. What new technologies are you particularly interested in at the moment?
For us, of course, the latest powerline technology based on the second generation of G.hn chips is important. Not only because it enables a performance boost but also, because it helps carriers and ISPs to deliver on the promise to provide highspeed connections anywhere at home. Moreover, using powerline as backbone for Mesh WiFi is the best way to save precious WiFi spectrum in the 5 GHz band.
3. What predictions do you have for home networking solutions within the next 12 to 18 months?
Buzzwords will turn into concrete products or will be part of upgrades to existing offers. E. g. we will see the spread of EasyMesh and the arrival of WiFi 6. All in all, the network will become increasingly intelligent and “self-organising”.
