Amazon is a good example of a company that uses AI to its advantage to drive products. As the company ever expands, this will create good customer service.

@DonBrown True. No doubt that the rationale behind hyping every storm and whipping people into a frenzied dash to stores to stock up on supplies.

Re: Happy New Year!
And it does seem the "bad" news is getting more prevalent as folks seem to be attrracted to news that creates fear and anxiety. The old addage that news that "bleeds" leads is still true today. It just seems human nature is aimed so that we're attracted to things that create fear, thinking how those incidents could happen to us or our families, even though in realithy the chances are slim.

Re: Happy New Year!
I wonder if the projects were escalated so they could move through the paperwork a lot faster. Seems like an important upgrade to them.

Re: Happy New Year!
I was surprosed to see that emergency services would be first adapters of 5G. Seeing as how those purchases seems to depend on local and state government agencies to make the decisions to fund purchases, I can't see anything happening that quickly as those decisions wind their way through the paperwork and decision making committees.

Re: Happy New Year!
@Michelle you got me there! The problem about stories is that they do generally prove the rule of "No news is good new," so we need bad news to generate stories.

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.
