Using the eero mobile app, eero devices, and automatic software updates there’s everything they need in one offering to deliver fast, reliable Wi-Fi. In today’s business environment, that’s a must-have.

“At eero, we started with a vision of bringing simple, reliable, and fast Wi-Fi  to customers across the globe, and now our Wi-Fi solutions are in millions of homes around the world,” said Nick Weaver, co-founder, and CEO of eero. “As we look for ways to continue to solve challenges for new types of customers, we’re thrilled to expand our offerings to professional installers and small businesses with these new PoE products and services.”
