There will be seven billion new Wi-Fi devices in the next three years, and a typical family home could have as many 500 connected devices by 2022. All this extra wireless connectivity means increasing congestion in the airwaves that transmit data.

The future of connectivity to homes for internet access, content viewing and communication will be hybrid Internet Protocol (IP). By that we mean a mixture of fixed (through the telephone line), satellite, wireless (in most cases Wi-Fi) and even mobile operator connections.

As a result, wired connections will become essential for maintaining a good level of connectivity in homes, so it’s important to get their installation right.
