Today’s consumers not only expect high-quality streaming capabilities; they are beginning to expect even more from their access points. As more content providers begin to offer 4K, high dynamic range and other ultra-high definition (UHD) video experiences, consumers expect that Wi-Fi will be able to meet ever-increasing requirements for throughput and reach.
In addition, the proliferation of Internet of Things (loT) devices is not only driving a requirement for more robust Wi-Fi, its placing a new set of specialized requirements on today’s access points that are creating diverse needs for both power and performance. Finally, the excitement around virtual reality (VR) applications in the home is setting up a new potential bandwidth explosion that may far surpass that of the streaming video revolution.
Meeting the unique needs of UHD, loT and VR traffic requires a shift in thinking about the access point technologies that are deployed in the home, a strategic approach to the overall home network architecture and new analytical capabilities that can help service providers glean actionable insights from each access point they deploy. As the evolution of the home network marches on, it’s a good idea to examine some of the many advances that are paving the way for better connected experiences for consumers, and new opportunities for service providers.
