As we get deeper into the 21st century, there is very little doubt that technological advances in the home are going to be the driving factor for most companies. Whether talking about full-fledged smart homes or simply offering solutions that make home networking that much easier, companies that want to survive are going to be working hard in the home. Bright House Networks seems to understand this reality as it announced earlier this week that customers in Florida can now enjoy a better Internet experience through the company’s ultimate home networking solution.
This solution is geared to work both on a home’s wired and wireless networks and has been dubbed “Echo”. This new solution is supposed to be geared towards helping customers in their homes by increasing the quality of the home network and getting rid of Wi-Fi dead spots. Brighthouse said that Echo is designed to provide a more consistent connection when it comes to streaming movies, playing video games or simply surfing the Web.
The solution does this by turning a users’ coaxial cable network into the equivalent of an Ethernet network. It stands to reason that increasing the network connections throughout the house will also pay dividends when talking about solutions that could help turn a home into a smart home. By have a more uniform connection throughout the house, devices that might operate on a smart house network are going to get better connections and do what they’re supposed to do more often.
Echo consists of a number of different factors, including an Advanced Wireless Gateway (News - Alert) 2.0 Echo Modem and access points that can be placed anywhere there is a cable outlet, with a Wi-Fi antennae and wired Ethernet ports allows customers to connect smart TVs and video game systems or computers to the Internet.
