At last week’s Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Taiwanese firm D-Link unveiled smart home devices designed to support remote post-pandemic workforces.

The impact of the global pandemic on workforces, and the overwhelming rise in remote working, means businesses have had to adopt new methods to keep teams connected. As a result, heavy bandwidth applications at home have increased, along with the use of technologies such as 8K video streaming and virtual and augmented reality.

Today’s broadband users demand low-cost networks with accelerated connectivity speeds, reliable access and efficient deployment. Yet, many people around the world still suffer from slow, unreliable internet.

D-Link’s smart home ecosystem combines 5G, AI and Wifi 6 technologies to transform homes into intelligent, automated, extensions of the office, providing the ecosystem required to sustain a seamless connection for work and leisure.

The company’s DWP-1010 5G and LTE outdoor CPE delivers gigabit speeds with redundancy, providing access for multiple users and a large number of connected devices. Equipped with a rugged design and flexible deployment options, it is said to be easy to install anywhere for optimum connectivity. The equipment is engineered to bring 5G connectivity into the home or the workplace.

The firm’s upcoming AI series allows people to enjoy a high-speed connection across all devices within the home. The series includes a router, mesh router and extender with AI technology to recognise and combat connection problems and improve performance.

The company’s latest Mydlink smart home cameras also use AI technology to provide high-accuracy surveillance and protection for the home.

Lastly, with D-Link’s Wifi 6 USB adapter, users can upgrade their desktop and notebook computers to Wifi 6 technology for better network data rates, capacity and performance even in dense, congested environments.

A designer, developer and manufacturer for over 30 years, D-Link has grown from a group of friends in Taiwan into a global brand with more than 2000 employees in 60 countries.
