In an average family of 5 household, assuming all children are 13+ there’s a chance they have between 7-10 devices connected at one time, in a data active family. That number in some households may even be light, which puts crazy strain on your router. Qualcomm has come up with software that fixes this altogether.
StreamBoost, Qualcomm’s software, will help a router manage connected devices efficiently. Far different from todays routers Quality of Service (QoS) technology in routers today, StreamBoost is able to provide accurate bandwidth to connected applications and devices. This could become the industry standard to be used on routers worldwide. If this could help manage home networks accurately, making devices and applications more efficient it may be inevitable. Only CES will tell..?
