“As consumers bring more devices and connected activities into their homes, they expect reliable, secure connectivity,” said†Dan Artusi, vice president and general manager, Connected Home Division, Intel. “We are working closely with industry leaders like D-Link to develop solutions that make home networks faster, smarter and more secure to ultimately enable new immersive smart home experiences.”
