Cable capex is generally going down as the initial wave of DOCSIS 3.1 deployments wrap up and MSOs reduce spending on set-tops, with 2019 likely to shape up as a year that some vendors will want to forget.

While Gfast updates won't actually help your dietary needs, they do push the service offerings into alignment with those of a fiber-only connection. From a service provider view, this simplifies operational processes, since providers need only maintain a single set of service profiles for their customers to purchase.

Small and midsize businesses in both urban and rural Virginia want providers to deliver ever-faster, fiber-based broadband at symmetrical speeds -- something Rural Local Exchange Carrier (RLEC) Lumos Networks planned for when it first designed, then deployed, 1 Gbit/s service.

The federal government is taking some commonsense steps to reduce cost, complexity and time from rural broadband deployments and, if actions accompany words, it could actually shrink the digital divide.

For many of us, home WiFi systems continue to be a pain almost as often as they are a pleasure. For the operators however, they may just turn out to be an untapped window of opportunity.

Consumers are buying millions of IoT devices, from smart thermostats and security systems to intelligent entertainment setups and furniture. Yet many of these devices remain isolated because home users are uncomfortable connecting them to each other – or even their WiFi. After all, their WiFi network was probably designed only to handle a few laptops, a gaming system and a couple of smartphones. Now, demand on the network is surging and even though you're delivering 100 Mbps to 1 Gbps, that doesn't necessarily mean the broadband power is in the right place or reaches every corner of a home.

Even if WiFi coverage is sufficient, typing is not on trend. Voice is far more natural, easier and faster. Using a TV keyboard is archaic when more and more households have access to cloud-based voice services, like Amazon Alexa. This webinar will explore how service providers can create a comfortable, truly smart home for consumers – simultaneously driving up margin and loyalty.
