Industry Description

Computer networks are common today.  Perhaps the largest are Internet and Internet2 which link millions of devices, individuals and companies around this planet.  Large and small companies have all kinds of proprietary networks for their own use. 

In the future, micro versions of these networks may be present in homes everywhere.  Manufacturers of chips and boards that link together the components and services that these networks use will possibly be customizable for every individual network. 

Hardware attachments of components may use technologies like “Plug-n-Play” to automatically detect and provide configuration for immediate use of everything in the home network.  Intelligent computers may be able to interpret the preferred use and limitations for such network devices based on instructions and training received by family members.
