In a fascinating 2020 study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, a fantastic team of three researchers from Institut Polytechnique Paris embarked on an exciting journey. They delved into the performance of chess players by analyzing around 24,000 professional chess matches spanning an impressive 125 years. With a focus on examining the moves of 4,294 players, including 20 world champions, they uncovered something truly intriguing. By comparing each player's chess moves with the optimal suggestions of a digital chess engine, the researchers made an exciting discovery: peak performance ability in chess tends to occur around the age of 35.1
Now, you might be wondering, what does all this chess talk have to do with networking or for that matter, D-Link? Well, not much directly, except for one important fact: D-Link has recently reached a significant milestone, celebrating over 35 years of expertise in designing and manufacturing connectivity devices! Just like those skilled chess players and champions, D-Link has utilized these 35 years to learn valuable life lessons, experiment, experience both success and failure, and emerge as a brand committed to delivering exceptional networking and IoT solutions for various needs.
With such a long journey comes trust and leadership. And D-Link has earned that trust through its strong partnerships. For example, when Meta sought a solution to help customers wirelessly connect their immensely popular Meta Quest 2 headset to gaming PCs for an enhanced PC VR gaming experience, they turned to none other than D-Link for the hardware.
Leadership is also evident in D-Link's approach to product design and manufacturing. Just like a champion chess player, D-Link always plans several moves ahead. They were among the pioneers in adopting the Building Security in Maturity Model (BSIMM). Moreover, by developing a range of products aligned with BSIMM and adhering to IEC-62443-4-1 secure product development lifestyle standards, D-Link demonstrates its dedication to ensuring the utmost security for your connected devices.
As any exceptional leader does, D-Link prioritizes its people. The company has consistently stood out by delivering reliable, high-performance networking solutions that offer excellent value. To top it all off, D-Link provides exceptional support throughout the customer journey. They offer personalized attention and go the extra mile to ensure customer satisfaction.
Imagine being faced with a choice between a highly experienced chess player with over 35 years of expertise and a less experienced opponent. It's clear which way you would lean, right? The same principle applies when it comes to connectivity solutions. You can confidently trust the brand that has been designing and manufacturing connectivity devices for over 35 years! You can trust the brand that upholds industry standards and best practices to provide enhanced security for you and your business. You can trust D-Link.
