Before adding multi-hundred-gigabit transponders to customers' networks, service providers manually calculate up to 40 configurations and their impact on wavelength usage to ensure infrastructure can manage traffic in all scenarios without running out of power before it reaches the destination. But what if that process was automated?

Market share shifts between cable and telco providers tell part of the story of the broadband industry's health and vibrance, but the effects of new household formation on subscriber growth -- a somewhat unappreciated metric -- tell much more, according to a top industry analyst.

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.
