Cisco announces developer community for smart WiFi routers
Cisco has announced the Linksys Developer Community, a program for developers to create apps for the new Linksys Smart Wi-Fi Routers. Cisco is also announcing that six developers have endorsed the community and are publishing apps built for Linksys Smart Wi-Fi Routers.

The new community is part of the Cisco Developer Network, a community that unites Cisco with third-party developers of hardware and software to deliver tested interoperable solutions to joint customers. Cisco, the pioneer in home networking, has sold more than 70 million Linksys routers worldwide and is leading the charge in the next-generation connected home.

Linksys Smart Wi-Fi Routers are powered by a cloud-based architecture that can be leveraged by developers as they create apps for any consumer electronic device. The community is designed to make the development of apps simple with an easy to use software developer kit (SDK), quick tutorials and sample code.

“We are on the cusp of a major transformation in the home where the network can enable experiences that consumers never dreamed possible. The sky is the limit for developers with our new software platform and Linksys Developer Community,” said Vikas Butaney, Director of product management for Cisco Home Networking. “From simple experiences allowing consumers to manage their home remotely to complex solutions, developers can benefit by creating value-added solutions for consumers.”

Several early developers have validated the Linksys Developer Community platform by using the SDK and tools from Cisco to simplify and accelerate app development. This has resulted in the first six apps developed by Axentra Corporation, Fresh Consulting LLC, Gemini Solutions Inc., PacketVideo Corporation, Stratedge Adroitent J.V. and Xoriant Corporation.

These initial apps enable new experiences such as simple one click device connectivity, access control and media sharing. The company says initial apps are just the beginning of many new experiences the Linksys Smart Wi-Fi Routers will enable within the community.

The Linksys Developer Community is launching in conjunction with Cisco’s new cloud platform, Cisco Connect Cloud, available now for Linksys Smart Wi-Fi Routers. Cisco Connect Cloud simplifies how consumers connect, control and interact with their entertainment devices and home appliances, enabling new connected experiences through apps and services.
