Nokia AVA cognitive services platform
I was reading about the Nokia AVA cognitive services platform and it is very wide ranging, with a huge mandate to, among other things, predict operational tie-ups and to prevent them. That is as impressive to me as fiber itself is.

Re: How do they calculate average speeds?
@DonBrowne Interesting question. Do you think it's possible for the political situation to have a positive effect?

Re: How do they calculate average speeds?
That is an interesting queston of how they define all those numbers and what's included and not in the averaging process. I wonder how the South American economies and political situation are affecting the progress negatively or maybe positively in those countries.

How do they calculate average speeds?
> "average speeds will more than double, reaching 29Mbit/s, compared with 13.2Mbit/s last year..." Wow. That doesn't seem all that impressive? How are these average speeds calculated? Are dialup speeds bringing the average down?

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.
