AURORA, Ill.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Westell Technologies, Inc., a leading provider of broadband products, gateways and conferencing services, has been selected to feature their new home monitoring and control solution at The Cable Center's 2008-2009 Cable Today and Tomorrow exhibit. Westell's application, which allows users to remotely monitor their home as well as control lighting, appliances, and other devices, is one of a small, exclusive group chosen for display.
"The Cable Center's Cable Today and Tomorrow exhibit features some of today's most innovative companies and demonstrates the industry's commitment to continuous technological advancement, something we believe Westell exemplifies with their solution for home monitoring and control," said Larry Satkowiak, president and chief executive officer of The Cable Center.
