Consumers have always looked to the consumer electronics industry for cutting edge technology. Moving forward, service providers must reverse this pattern and move from defense to offense with the impending wave of IoT devices headed towards their subscribers' homes.

This webinar will focus on how service providers must leverage the hard-won position in the home network to fight off the web-scale competitors intent on relegating them in to wholesalers wholesalers that would still bear the burden of the support calls.

Webinar speakers will highlight the new approaches that need to be taken in order to reduce the time required to get to market with new services and ensure always-on connectivity, including a managed WiFi offering, which provides a strong foundation and a springboard for the oncoming chaos of IoT.

In addition, the webinar will showcase what elements are required to give service providers an advantage in the in-home device battle to establish and own the strategic point of presence including:

  1. 802.11ax WiFi technology
  2. Leading low-power IoT protocol support (e.g., BlueTooth, Zigbee and Z-Wave)
  3. MU-MIMO
  4. Voice recognition technology
  5. Advanced security
