Amazon to acquire mesh WiFi system provider eero

Tagged with: | | | | |

Amazon acquisition of eero : E-commerce giant Amazon has agreed to acquire mesh WiFi system provider eero for an undisclosed price.

Eero replaces the traditional router and blankets the whole home in fast, reliable WiFi by using the concept of mesh networking. Through this concept, an eero mesh wifi system eliminates coverage issues and dead zones that are otherwise faced by traditional routers.

Instead of a single router device, multiple access points are used to blanket an entire home with a strong Wi-FI signal. Customers can tailor an Eero system to suit the needs of their homes, ensuring perfect streaming video in every room, and delivering the bandwidth all connected devices need.

Through, the easy-to-use eero app, customers can easily set up the system in less than 10 minutes, share their network, program parental controls and also run speed tests on demand. Also, eero communicates with the cloud to get instructions and updates which mean eero systems are self-updating, self-fixing and improving on their own all the time.

Nick Weaver – Co-Founder, and CEO of eero, commenting on Amazon acquisition of eero, said: “From the beginning, eero’s mission has been to make the technology in homes just work.

“We started with WiFi because it’s the foundation of the modern home. Every customer deserves reliable and secure WiFi in every room. By joining the Amazon family, we’re excited to learn from and work closely with a team that is defining the future of the home, accelerate our mission, and bring eero systems to more customers around the globe.”

Amazon claims that customers are happy with Eero’s products and services, as it received a 4.6-star product rating on Amazon.com.

Commenting on Amazon acquisition of eero, Dave Limp – SVP of Amazon Devices and Services, said: “We are incredibly impressed with the eero team and how quickly they invented a WiFi solution that makes connected devices just work. We have a shared vision that the smart home experience can get even easier, and we’re committed to continue innovating on behalf of customers.”

Amazon acquisition of eero will be completed once it meets the customary closing conditions.
