Re: Green Telecommute
I think simplicity in transportation is going to become paramount in the future.

Re: Green Telecommute
I see. It makes sense in China for vatious reasons. China has a big problem with pollution and the cities are so over-populated that it just makes matters worse. Not owning a bike also helps with the small living space. I am not sure the model would work in the US, though. People in the US like to own things and love their cars. How much of a bike culture as means of transportation is it in the US? I agree, the success of this pretty much depends on how much cities support bike riding. In Amsterdam, there are more bikes than cars and the bike lane system is just impressive. They even have their own traffic lights. I have recently seen a few means of future transportation at the Smart Mobility Congress which include electric scooters, and some other which reminded me of Back to The Future.

Re: Green Telecommute
There is an issue of sustanability no doubt--and cost effectiveness--but the reality is here and it is exciting to be witness to it all.

Re: Green Telecommute
China is big on it--and others around the World--Including London--seem to be at the forefront as well.

Re: Green Telecommute
With all the bike-sharing and electric scoother services popping up.. I wonder if the Segway folks are kicking themselves for not creating something simpler many decades ago. I saw that Segway is trying to catch up with its own kind of slightly cheaper hoverboard, but that seems like they're still missing the target.

> "Bike-sharing business? .... Is it a new thing?"

Not really? It's a big thing in China, and startups have been trying to do "dockless" bike rentals in the US with varying success. I assume success has to do with whether or not there's bike lanes and willing cyclists in a particular location. 

Electric scooters seem to be taking off in more places -- maybe they look cooler and are easier to ride?

Bike-sharing business? For some reason I can’t see that business model taking off. Is it a new thing?

Re: Telecommute
Indeed, it is. Self-discipline is paramount when working from home. And being appropriately dressed is part of the whole.

Re: Green Telecommute
What is clear is this:  the slugfest is going to be fascinating to watch--and as for Uber, they're trying to get in the bike-sharing business as well--exciting times for sure as we embark upon the final month of 2018!!

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.
