Devicescape Software has reportedly helped Buffalo Technology to deliver simple and secure Wi-Fi connections for home and small business environments. The partnership between the two companies has enabled users to quickly and easily add their laptops to their Buffalo wireless network by using solutions jointly developed by Devicescape and Buffalo.
With Devicescape, Buffalo has reduced its support costs and is now able to provide an improved wireless networking experience for consumers.
According to ABI, over half of all broadband users access the Internet via a home network, so expectations are high for continued growth in this sector. Even though accessing wireless networks has become more common place, average users are still challenged by setting these up and adding new devices. The company said that the integration of Devicescape's software into Buffalo’s Client Manager software is empowering Buffalo’s customers to add new devices quickly and securely with minimum fuss.
Kota Sato, Buffalo Broadband Solutions Business Division said that the connected lifestyle is about more than devices, it's about how a range of Wi-Fi enabled equipment can be connected so that together they deliver a truly compelling and productive experience.
He explained that as wireless technology becomes ever more prevalent around the home, offices and in public hotspots, users are demanding a simple set-up and secure connection between their different Wi-Fi-enabled components. Devicescape Software enables his company to fulfill these requirements.
Dave Fraser, CEO of Devicescape pointed out that in consumer electronics there are two Wi-Fi fundamentals - it's got to connect simply and be secure. He said that the combination of Devicescape with its own Client Manager software provides Buffalo with a simple, secure and powerful Wi-Fi solution that is ideal for the consumer electronics market.
Buffalo has licensed the Devicescape Agent supplicant, a Wi-Fi security software package that supports the latest Wi-Fi standards and security technologies. This technology allows Wi-Fi enabled devices to seamlessly and securely connect to any Wi-Fi network.
