Home Networking Made Easy – Part 2

Cisco recently announced the intent to acquire Pure Networks, a Seattle-based leader in home networking-management software and tools. Earlier this week, I was able to catch up with Chris Dobrec, Senior Director of World Wide Strategy and Business Development of the Linksys division at Cisco, to get further insight into how the acquisition of Pure Networks will bring Cisco customers an easy to manage home networking system. Chris gives specific examples of how home networking will be made easier for the consumer and defines the transition from Home Networking 1.0 to Home Networking 2.0.If you have any questions about home networking 2.0, post a comment and let me know. I can post a video reply from Chris to clear things up :-)
