D.he coronavirus also hits the trade fairs hard: This year, significantly fewer manufacturers are represented at the International Consumer Electronics Fair (IFA, September 3 to 5, 2020 in Berlin) than usual. This can be observed across all product categories, including with WLAN hardware . FritzBox manufacturers AVM and Netgear have already canceled their participation in the IFA in advance. The Chinese company TP-Link, on the other hand, seizes the opportunity and presents a colorful potpourri of WLAN and smart home devices, some with future-oriented technology.
