The world we live in today has become increasingly connected. Not long ago, most people only had a desktop computer and maybe, a laptop computer that needed access to the Internet or maybe a network-connected printer. In just a few short years it seems that every device in our lives can now communicate with other devices, store data on some remote location, automate some process, or allow us to communicate with each other in new and exciting ways. In fact, it is estimated that the number of connected devices will exceed 50 billion by the year 2020. It is not an exaggeration to compare a home’s network to the digital “backbone” of your home that all other home technologies rely on.
This means that the Wi-Fi and the local area networks (LANs) within people’s homes have become substantially more robust in a very short period of time. It also means that consumers may have negative experiences using networking hardware not engineered for today’s higher bandwidth demands and the massive increase in the quantity of devices. This has become abundantly clear, especially now when parents and kids are all working from home in this COVID environment. This article explains why an enterprise-grade network is a MUST in every luxury home.
