Smart Router Benefits

With increasing consumer demand for smart appliances for security, climate control, lighting and health alongside smart TVs – connectivity is likely to become so pervasive to the extent of being embedded in every household device in the coming years.

The router’s unique place in the home network means it can save power, protect privacy, provide autonomy, absorb gateway boxes and much more. These benefits are a springboard for new services and operational savings and can only be realised by creating an innovative environment and ecosystem at the network edge that enhances value for the operator.

The broadband router is established as a secure, managed edge-of-network device. Transforming it from a fixed-function terminal into a smart router has the potential to deliver a significant competitive advantage for operators seeking agility, innovation and security.
