Re: happens soon
@JohnDrake Right now, I am having a problem with the Wi-Fi connection on my iPhone. The service provider is AT&T. Continually have to keep checking into my Wi-Fi network. Never happened before. My boyfriend's phone is under the same plan, and he's not having that problem. Wonder what is wrong.

Re: standardized
It's great when all parties agree to follow the standards. I hope this convergence is actually as good as expected and happens on schedule.

I hope this convergence happens soon, but for right now I cannot use a cell phone to call from my barn to my house because of the poor coverage. It is easier to use a citizens' band radio for that, right now, anyway.

According to the report the convergence of 5G and Wi-Fi will lead to a better user experience because a significant amount of data traffic from smartphones use Wi-Fi access. That will also create more opportunity for both Wi-Fi and cellular provders.

Re: standardized
Agreeing to as noted "Convergence of 5G and WiFi potentially could deliver big benefits to mobile operators, enterprise and public WiFi solution providers including cable operators," seems to be just where broadband should naturally head for the next few years, finding ways to combine the advanced technological leaps possbile to benefit operators and the users both.

<some cellular operators want a standardized solution, so they gain improved visibility and control into the configuration and management of WiFi access networks.> that does make sense. I think that has been the general trend for technology in the past, coming together in some form of standardization.

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.
