The company estimates that the tool will provide technicians “up to an estimated 30 percent reduction in time spent resolving Wi-Fi issues.”
The second is Eero Secure, a subscription service that can be deployed with the company’s mesh Wi-Fi systems. Customers can use it to block attacks like malware, spyware, and phishing. It also includes parental controls. And Eero is also offering its Eero 6 Mesh Wi-Fi system to ISPs, which supports Wi-Fi 6 and includes a built-in Zigbee smart home hub. The company says that users will be able to manage their internet experience with an “ISP co-branded mobile app” — they can pause their internet service and share it with guests.
Eero isn’t the first manufacturer to release products like this. Comcast’s xFi internet platform also includes a subscription security service that blocks suspicious activity and quarantines devices. (Disclosure: Comcast is an investor in Vox Media, The Verge’s parent company.)
One of Wall Street’s most talked-about trends is the wave of special-purpose acquisition companies, or SPACs, that have launched IPOs at such a torrid pace that they’re on track to raise more than triple last year’s totals.
One-hundred and twelve SPACs, aka “blank-check firms,” have raised more than $40 billion so far this year, according to the website SPAC Research. There are now 183 shell companies with $57 billion to spend on bringing other companies public, the data provider said.
There’s an entire ecosystem of advisers, salespeople, and lawyers increasingly pitching blank-check companies to investment platforms and wealthy people. Asset managers like Fidelity, T. Rowe Price, and Capital Research are also increasingly participating in the market, lending an additional aura of respectability to what had once been considered a back corner of the financial markets.
Historically, SPACs have been used as an alternate way into the public markets for companies that didn’t have the governance threshold to attract investors in a traditional IPO, or a last-ditch effort for investors to exit their stake. The traditional process requires filing a prospectus, engaging with the SEC and facing scrutiny from discerning investors.
