Does it seem that wireless gadgets are everywhere? Over the past 16 years, wireless speeds increased a thousand fold and over 47 million global hotspots are now available. There are more than 8 billion wireless devices currently in use; two billion of these are smart phones.
Today smart TVs, connected thermostats and security systems are commonplace. Manufacturers are increasingly adding intelligence and connectivity to products not commonly considered “high-tech,” such as Wi-Fi connected coffee makers, door locks, slow cookers and refrigerators. The Wi-Fi Alliance predicts that the total number of connected devices will exceed 38 billion by 2020.
