WD logoWestern Digital today unveilled its first line of wireless home networking products, designed to accelerate movies, video and gaming across the house.

The company announced its My Net family of home networking products, which feature the 'FasTrack' technology that instantly detects entertainment traffic on the network and fast-forwards it to gaming consoles, media players, smart TVs, tablets, smartphones, computers and other Wi-Fi connected devices. FasTrack optimization technology automatically prioritizes Internet favorites like Netflix, Hulu Plus, VUDU, YouTube, Xbox LIVE, Skype and others, to stream in up to Full-HD 1080p quality.
