The last ten years in home networking have been characterized by the transition of Wi-Fi from a nice to have feature to essential for domestic internet access. This transition was driven by the proliferation of smartphones and tablets, increases in fixed-line broadband speeds and the failure of service providers to make 4G fixed wireless access a viable alternative. The consumer electronics industry now regards wireless connectivity as ubiquitous and is flooding the market with Wi-Fi dependent smart home devices, leading to congested home networks. The next decade in home networking will be defined by meeting the technological demands of the smart home.
