I think wired networks don't have much of a future at all.
Respectfully, I would have to disagree.
I think it's a matter of blending the two.
Keeping wired networks up to date when you have an outlet in every room is kind of intense. Also, a lot of devices are now wireless only, or pretty annoying to hook up:
- Laptops (Sofa, kitchen table, toilet, you name it, can't hook it up every time).
- Cellphones, Tablet PCs, they are only wireless.
What's left are desktop computers, Set-Top-Box (and variances of it) and network storage. Those are typically in fixed locations.
What I'm doing is running cable to key locations but I'm not going to bother getting a RJ45 port in every bedroom, just the office room.
