D-Link provides broadband hardware for ‘smart homes’

D-Link has struck an alliance with wireless broadband provider, SkyNetGlobal, to provide hardware for its assortment of wireless and fixed broadband and home auto­mation services.

The deal will see the networking vendor supply its wireless and broadband hardware products to SkyNetGlobal’s Wi-Fi service, as well as equipment for SkyNetGlobal-sub­sidiary W Home’s range of wireless and broadband offerings for residents of multiple dwelling units (MDUs).

More specifically, D-Link would provide CPE-based equipment such as ADSL modems and routers, wireless access points and adapters, wireless range extenders, antennas and Ethernet networking products, D-Link marketing director, Maurice Famularo, said.

Referred to by SkyNetGlobal as a “smart home system”, the W Home model uses a main connection point within the MDU to distribute wireless and fixed broadband services, IP telephony and home security and automation services to the individual’s premises.

The company has 20 live W Home sites in Australia. Another 30 sites are ready for deployment.

As part of the deal, D-Link will also recommend W Home as its apartment and SME office suite ISP partner within the Asia-Pacific region for fixed and wireless services.
