Cloud computing and network security have dominated technology discussions over the past year, yet they will soon be replaced by talk of 'The Internet of Things', said Patrick Lo, CEO of NetGear. Lo said the drive to connect devices in the home will boost sales of networking gear in the next 2-3 years. Sales in the companyâ¿¿s Q1 were up a healthy 24% due to holiday buying, and Lo does not expect to repeat or top that number in the traditionally slower Q2. That said, Lo has high expectations for the company's new Nighthawk tri-band router which is rolling out this summer, as well as a further sales lift from recent deals with Sprint and US Cellular.
