Google Fiber was once greeted by Louisville residents with effusive thanks, parades and renamed streets (as well as the occasional pet, or at least that's what I heard). Now, though, Google Fiber customers await the official April 15 shutoff date with mixed emotions. (See Google in 'The Case of the Minimal Microtrenching'.)

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 Ė 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 Ė simultaneously driving up margin and loyalty.
