What do customers care about when using Wi-Fi on their smartphone, laptop or computer? Excellent performance, high speed and seamless coverage for many users in the home or office. Customers do not care about technologies; a reliable connection is what counts.
A basic smart home Wi-Fi infrastructure design involves positioning one pod per room. Distributed Wi-Fi, or Wi-Fi mesh, is the ultimate solution for full home coverage. It combines a high data rate and high capacity for applications demanding ultra-low power technology for sensor networks, supporting many wireless communication standards.
Cees Links is a Wi-Fi pioneer. Under his responsibility, the first wireless LANs were developed, ultimately becoming household technology integrated into PCs and notebooks. He also pioneered the development of access points, home networking routers, and hotspot base stations. He was involved in the establishment of the IEEE 802.11 standardization committee and the Wi-Fi Alliance. He was also instrumental in establishing the IEEE 802.15 standardization committee to become the basis for the Zigbee® sense and control networking. Cees Links was the founder and CEO of GreenPeak Technologies, now part of Qorvo, and is now the General Manager of the Wireless Connectivity Business Unit. He was recognized as Wi-Fi pioneer with the Golden Mousetrap Lifetime Achievement award.
