Re: Speakers + cameras
Wow! I didn't realize they had so much activity already. I'm waiting for it to come to my area. I think UPS and Fedex have pretty good coverage here, however.

Re: Speakers + cameras
Amazon Flex has been expanding to a LOT of areas... Presumbably, to test out faster more efficient deliveries -- even in rural areas. It's a lot like Uber or Lyft, tho, in its treatment of drivers, so we'll see how it works out if/when autonomous drone deliveries become a reality.....

Re: Speakers + cameras
I would be surprised to see that myself. They may be testing Amazon deliveries in your area. I know they have it in some places.

Re: Speakers + cameras
I was surprised a few day ago to see an "Amazon Prime" van in my pretty rural SW Florida neighborhood. I'm not sure what they are delivering, maybe only to prime customers or maybe some larger purchases. Normally, Amazon products seem to arrive here by parcel delivery or even U.S. mail.

separate wifi networks
So I have two WiFi networks, on two different routers, for security purposes. One is fairly open, for junk use, and the other is fairly tight, with heavy-duty firewalls. I wonder, would a mesh system let a customer create two separate networks like that? I'm guessing you would have to create two meshes.

Re: Speakers + cameras
As the delivery service is gathering steam, it is their "Flex"program that is also starting to gather steam too--I have already seen them around town--It seems nothing is out of their reach!!!

Re: Speakers + cameras
That's very interesting. We don't have a lot of Amazon direct-delivery in my area. We have a large number of UPS and FedEx stores as well as an Amazon Pickup store.

Re: Speakers + cameras
...Amazon seems to be everywhere--I have seen UPS stores "kind of" disappear as I see Amazon Delivery drivers actually delivering products--it seems nothing is prone to being "Amazon'd"!! :)

Re: Own it
...but if a "MESH" network is created, it renders this void-right?  In my City, as an FYI, our Emergency Services folks are looking to create a MESH network utilizing residences, for instance--so I wonder about this.....

Well sure, I was thinking about all the ways digital privacy is invaded even though there are laws against it. :)

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.
