Q&A with Rob Wells, senior director at NETGEAR
Back in November 2012 we ran a Q&A with Rob Wells, senior director at NETGEAR, to discuss the developments in Wireless AC technology and what it meant to consumers. Here, we revisit the matter with Rob and see how this technology has advanced over the past six months...
Why is a connected home so important for consumers in 2013?
Most of the time, things work smoothly and we can communicate, socialise, bank and shop online with no problems. But with more gadgets dependent on a single router than ever before, things don't always run smoothly. What we normally take for granted, like a fast and reliable internet connection, can become difficult and often frustrating.
What are the latest NETGEAR products that are helping us all to build the ultimate connected home?
Why are the benefits of AC technology now more accessible to customers?
For example, Samsung has released the Samsung Galaxy S4, and HTC recently made the HTC One available, both of which are 802.11ac-enabled smartphones. We're also anticipating smartphones, tablets and TVs from other leading manufacturers to be announced over the coming months. This means that consumers can really start to make the most out of this technology, and we're looking forward to helping them.
