D-Link celebrates 30 years

by Stuart Wilson, Tuesday 21 June 2016

Networking brand D-Link is celebrating its 30th anniversary as a global player in technology and networking. From a founding group of just seven employees in 1986, the business now has a 2,700-strong workforce across 65 countries worldwide and has achieved double‑digit growth year-over-year for more than two decades. This landmark comes as the Taiwanese multinational enters a new era, following the recent appointment of John Hsuan as chairman.

In 1986, Ken Kao founded D-Link, then known as Datex Systems, breaking the mould of the existing networking industry by developing affordable, high-quality network adapters that were smaller and smarter than other available technologies. This new affordability and increased functionality helped accelerate the global PC revolution that saw computers become accessible. This landmark was achieved by using custom chips that the company designed itself.

D-Link’s product range expanded as the connected world developed. The company’s portfolio now spans from advanced smart switches and high-performance Wi-Fi routers, to security systems, video surveillance cameras, home automation products which include smart plugs that can be remotely controlled, and mobile apps for managing smart homes.

Kevin Wen, president of D-Link Europe, said: "With three decades of market leading experience under our belt, we’re incredibly proud to look back at our past achievements. Our business has been built on foundations of leadership, growth and passion, which have been evident since our first design.”

Wen added: “We continue this passion for connecting people as we embark on a new age of intelligent, automated services, where society will gain huge benefits from interconnecting the world’s information. It’s an exciting time, and we look forward to developing more innovative ways to connect consumers to the next generation of the internet."
