Companies like D-Link are today developing safer and smarter routers such as the new AC2600 Wi-Fi Router presented during MWC18. This router incorporates a McAfee technology security solution, which allows all home devices to be automatically protected by SHP.
“This router connects all devices in the home, leverages the cloud which does most of the work, and optimizes in real time to defend against attacks or new types of viruses, thereby making it more efficient and secure”, said Ms. Tina Tsai, D-Link Global Marketing Director.
SECOM: “We will control all household appliances and devices through a single mobile application”

Business Developer Director of iXensor Dr. Gabriel Chao, opened his presentation by presenting a very real future scenario for many developed societies: the exponential aging of its population, which he coined, the looming ‘grey tsunami’.
iXensor has responded by developing a device that has smart cameras and sensors connected to conventional mobile phones, allowing it to read, digitize and synchronize patient data in the cloud e.g. glucose levels, and hence extract trends and graphics that make it possible to motorize and diagnose diseases.
