Re: Twinkle Twinkle Little Satellite
@bayte The Nest thermostats seem to be the way to go these days. It is the "smart" way of controlling the temperature in your home, so your wife has the right idea. It can save on energy bills. I'm frightened that Alexa may suddenly emerge as a real-life robot.

Re: Twinkle Twinkle Little Satellite
Wow, that is interesting. I know nothing about either of the two, never used any personally. Based on wht i hear around Alexa is really coming up lately with more advanced fetures.

Re: Twinkle Twinkle Little Satellite
@ms.akkineni My sister asked Alexa our horoscopes one evening I was at her house. My reading was eerily accurate. I've never used Alexa or Siri. Has Alexa basically replaced Siri, or is Alexa more popular?

Re: Twinkle Twinkle Little Satellite
I have similar thoughts. But there are tons of people that use Alexa for trivial things. Amazon rolled out a brand new Alexa feature yesterday to delete a week old past instructions  from memory. So this is a clear indicator of its usage.

Re: Twinkle Twinkle Little Satellite
I bet, no matter how smart these automobiles are ...we can't just blindly depend on that smartness alone. That smartness can be handy as long as combined with human intelligence. So we can't rule out that smart features are no help buy certainly not to depend 100%.

Re: Twinkle Twinkle Little Satellite
I particularly am not too fond of Alexa. Why do people have to ask her to do everything, like turn the TV on, or like on Jeopardy tonight, Alex Trebek asked her to dim the lights. I'm not sure I trust Alexa too much.

It wasn't long ago that TV was ranked by subscribers as the most important service in the bundle provided by their communications service provider (CSP). Recent research indicates that for nearly three quarters of subscribers, broadband is now the most important service. Broadcast TV is the most important service to only 15% of North American consumers, replaced by OTT video streaming platforms like Netflix, Amazon Prime and Disney+. In addition, many different competitors are moving aggressively to stake a claim in consumers' homes.

In 2020, CSPs need to fight back by transforming their business models, which are becoming more reliant on a single source of revenue: fixed broadband services.

This webinar will focus on helping CSPs transform their business models by placing a firm focus on delivering a sensational subscriber experience and by offering compelling new services that generate value for subscribers. These actions will reinforce the CSP's strategic position in the home network and position themselves for growth in the next decade.

Key topics include:

  • Being the first to market with WiFi 6 technology, in response to consumer purchases of new devices over the holidays;
  • Having the insights needed to proactively resolve issues, often before your subscribers even know that there are issues;
  • Providing help desk agents with the visibility they need to resolve common subscriber issues more quickly;
  • Delivering a mobile app, in response to consumer demands for the ability to do some things themselves, rather than having to call technical support; and
  • Addressing consumer concerns around device security, privacy and control with enhanced security and parental controls.
