Wonderful information. Thank you, Ronan!

Gigamaster

absolutely agree. The consumer has become the product.

Final pillar - * Trust opex - Unfortunately, have seen malware rise, even in less expensive handsets; even if careful about installing security software, if the handset -- perhaps discounted or very low-cost IoT sensor -- is infected, then customer is in trouble.

Are we on the cusp of a sort of technological revolution, say when the Internet changed the way we do absolutely everything? Perhaps with the relationship between service provider, operators, vendors?

* Importance of culture - of the operator and of each vendor/partner - 5x or 7x9s - must be very careful about cultural alignment of each provider of each component
* Traceability - what is wrong, why it is wrong and how to fix it

* Architected network
* System integrity

Do you have any questions for Ronan?

The times they are definitely a 'changin'!

Peter Drucker - Culture eats strategy for breakfast - Do you agree?

Fascinating ideas!
Narrowbander

Interesting example about the giraffe. Unfortunately, I am not vertically challenged. 

Gigamaster

Not "vertically challenged" aka tall as a child - so Ronan leveraged his height into a reasonably successful 'career' as a high jumper. Used this as an example of thinking out of the box.

Gigamaster

Don't forget to get your questions ready for Ronan!

Author

Hello, from Long Island! Hopefully I can get to hear this show. I think it's supposed to load automatically?

 

Gigamaster
The audio player will load automatically when the radio show audio begins. Some corporate networks block the sort of streaming audio content used by this player. If the player loads but you are not able to hear the live audio, you may still be able to hear the archived audio after the live program finishes by returning to this page.

The MDU market continues to face fierce competition among service providers due to tech-savvy residents (i.e., millennials), demand from building owners and management companies, plus the favorable economics of bulk contracts. However, no MDUs are the same, so service providers must use multiple technologies and inconsistent deployment models, increasing operational complexity and rollout costs.

The MDU market itself is evolving as residents adopt smart-home technologies, generating rising demand for smart apartments with built-in connected thermostats, keyless entryways and doors, and video doorbells. This evolution presents both new challenges and opportunities. In other words, service providers must consider innovative service-delivery strategies to compete and win.

In this Broadband World News and ADTRAN webinar, Kurt Raaflaub, Head of Strategic Solutions Marketing, will highlight emerging MDU broadband Internet trends and challenges. In addition, Kurt will outline the next-generation service creation and delivery platform, built on open standards, that allows service providers to connect millions of underserved MDUs, enables creation of user-driven services, and reduces operational complexity and costs.

Plus, special guest, Alice Lawson, Broadband and Cable Program Manager for the City of Seattle, will discuss Seattle’s B4B-Build For Broadband initiative that addresses best practices in planning for MDU telecommunication infrastructure.
