D-Link collaborates with Silicon Labs

by Stuart Wilson, Tuesday 30 August 2016

Networking vendor D-Link and Internet of Things (IoT) solutions provider Silicon Labs have announced that they are working together to accelerate smart home technology development and deployment. The collaboration brings D-Link’s strength in the design and manufacture of consumer networking devices, its market recognition and its well-established smart home ecosystem, mydlink home, together with Silicon Labs’ deep expertise in developing innovative semiconductors and modules leveraging key connected home and IoT wireless networking technologies such as ZigBee, Thread, Bluetooth low energy and Wi-Fi.

This unique combination of technologies, manufacturing capability and market presence will offer the companies’ respective customers accelerated access to the latest innovations in smart home and smart metering technologies. The collaboration enables D-Link to produce consumer and custom-designed home automation, security and smart metering end products featuring Silicon Labs’ hardware and software technologies.

These products will be designed, delivered and supported through D-Links’ established supply chain, rapidly extending Silicon Labs’ reach into this fast-growing market.

Paul Howard, technical director, service provider business Europe at D-Link, said: “D-Link are already actively working with ISPs, telecoms companies and energy providers across Europe on home automation projects. Working as a team with Silicon Labs enables us to provide these customers with immediate access to the most advanced mesh networking technologies such as ZigBee and Thread protocols. This approach ensures that they can in turn build compelling, reliable smart home offerings for their customers, which are fully supported and do not have significant up-front engineering costs.”

Riku Mettälä, VP of marketing for wireless products at Silicon Labs, added: “Working with D-Link makes our wireless connectivity technology immediately accessible in solutions that consumers are familiar with and from a brand that consumers trust. Together, D-Link and Silicon Labs can provide comprehensive IoT solutions that solve the ‘last-meter’ connectivity challenge in a consumer-friendly way. This collaboration also dramatically simplifies the route for service providers to establishing a fully featured smart home package.”
