A snapshot of Broadband World Forum 2018 highlights and trends, as captured by Niall Hunt in words and photos.
Over the last six years, video demand has surged but NBN's investment in fiber, FTTC and DOCSIS 3.1 allowed the national Australian wholesaler to keep up with today's – and future – needs, CTO Ray Owen told a Broadband World Forum audience.
During Broadband World Forum, Jorge Bonifacio, director of Network and Services Strategy at the Portuguese operator, shared Altice Fiber's 11-year-old FTTH policy, its impact and benefits.
The NBN deployment of wholesale broadband infrastructure throughout most of the nation should propel Australia from the bottom ten to the top ten OECD countries, according to the 2018 'Connecting Australia' report.
Service provider collaboration must go beyond standards bodies, BT CTIO Howard Watson told a packed keynote session on Wednesday morning. CSPs must share results from trials and more to improve customer experience, he said.

Alexa, What's This New Opportunity for Service Providers? (archive available soon)
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.
