Austin, TX (PRWEB) May 12, 2011
Affinegy, provider of intelligent home networking software solutions, today announced that its Home Portal software is helping over 7.6 million consumers manage their wireless home networks, an increase of 56% in just one year’s time.
As the connected home flourishes - the average home now uses six connected devices and projections indicate the use of 10 to 12 by 2012 - companies have recognized that the customer experience is paramount to business success.
Affinegy’s broadband service provider and equipment manufacturer customers distribute the Home Portal to help their users securely and easily discover, connect and manage their wireless home networks and all the components – PCs, game consoles, printers, connected TVs and more.
Existing Affinegy customers have dramatically increased their deployment footprints domestically and internationally in 30 languages, and new customers, including a top five broadband service provider, are catalysts for continued growth. To serve this expanding market and customer base, Affinegy plans to increase its staff by over 40 percent during 2011.
Affinegy was also selected to present at the CIO.IT Competition at The Cable Show 2011, another indicator of the significance of the company’s vision for managing the connected home. A committee of cable Chief Information Officers reviewed over 45 applications and selected eight finalists to present their solutions to some of cable’s greatest IT challenges. Affinegy Chief Technology Officer Art Lancaster will speak on, “Driving Top Line Results by Managing the Last 50 Feet - The Subscriber’s Home Network and Devices.” Affinegy will also have a booth in the CableNET Pavilion, an area that features demonstrations of innovative next generation broadband content and applications.
“Our customers are embracing the importance of engaging their customers and providing them with a simple and secure way to get the most value and enjoyment out of their home networks,” said Melissa Simpler, CEO of Affinegy. “With exciting new products in our pipeline and increased interest in managing the connected home, we are well positioned for even greater growth in 2011 and beyond.”
