Smart connections – a vital component of a smart city, incorporating transportation, online access, technology, and community.
With Smart Connect technology, the name says it all. When you connect a new device to your router, Smart Connect can intelligently identify the device, decide which band will give it the best connection, and connect it to that band. This helps in two ways. First, it takes guesswork to connect your devices to the appropriate Wi-Fi band, since it’s not always easy to determine which brand is best. Many people think the 5 GHz band is always better because it provides less interference for high-bandwidth operations such as streaming and gaming. But when it comes to devices like older generation phones and tablets, connected home products, and Wi-Fi cameras, the 2.4GHz band is often the better choice, so you can save the faster 5GHz bands for devices that need it.
