Connect Cloud

Connect Cloud is a platform designed by Cisco that allows users to access their home network remotely via the Internet from a connected device such as an Android or Apple mobile phone. The system comes with a suite of apps from managing multiple routers on separate networks, to remotely controlling access to content on their home networks, and managing home appliances connected to a home network. The system also allows third parties to develop applications for the router, as well as offering a Wi-Fi interfacing standard so that supported home appliances can connect to and be managed via the home network.

Cisco backpedals after customer uproar, drops connect cloud from default router setting. With the new connect cloud, customers of certain Linksys devices with automatic firmware updates turned on could no longer use the traditional router management tools available in a Web browser at the address 192.168.1.1. Instead, they had to sign up for Cisco’s cloud service, roll back the firmware, or forget about using advanced router management features.
