Re: Twinkle Twinkle Little Satellite
@ms.akkineni I agree that the features you point out about smart cars are all practical, but soon we may become so reliant on such features we won't know how to drive at all, like the people here in Long Island. Some of them need such things as being alerted to apply brakes. Some positives that I can think of are kitchen appliances. My sister just moved into a new home they built that has a wall oven that is Bluetooth-enabled and can be operated via an app. She said she's not sure what it will do, but she will find out. And she's more technological than I am.

Re: Twinkle Twinkle Little Satellite
We should be mindful that any new offers both positives and negatives at the same time. It all depends on the choices we make when it comes to adapting. Thinking of smart features in general - i personally feel that cars alerting when you cross lanes, or needs more sterring on the wheel or even alerting to apply brakes etc are all good practically useful features, to name a few on top of my head.

Re: Twinkle Twinkle Little Satellite
@ms. akkineni Well, your post made me feel a whole lot better about myself. Of course the whole idea of techology is to bring about positive changes for everything: telemedicine, education, smart cities, etc ... I haven't seen too many positive things coming from AI, however. Maybe you can point out some things.

Re: Twinkle Twinkle Little Satellite
Seeing these little too fast developments surely would bring concerns. So getting paranoid is nothing out of the norm. We are aware of many positive realtime effects of satelites, so have good hope to see further improvements in future.

Re: Twinkle Twinkle Little Satellite
@Joe Stanganelli My thought pattern may be just a tad narcissistic, and somewhat paranoid. Of course I'm not on any list, at least none that I know of. The satellites hopefully are being used for the improvement of life on this planet.

Re: Nice to have
@ms.akkineni I see it as a scarry new reality... as it like in 1940 germany only one way and no other way... in life we should have more options and rely on facts not opinion... but this days not many brodcasters use facts... it more opinion...

Re: Twinkle Twinkle Little Satellite
Interesting angle. I raise you another question -- what about space junk? (I asume these minis orbit closer to earth than a lot of the orbiting junk)

Re: Nice to have
I hear you. I think we moved too far away from broadband now. As you said it can only become an option if that happens to be the only option available. Otherwise it would remain to be not a prefered option.

Re: Twinkle Twinkle Little Satellite
@srufolo: I guess you just have to take comfort in the idea that it's so expensive and resource-heavy to use those things for spying that it's almost guaranteed that no one's going to use it to bother you unless you're on a list somewhere.

Unfortunately, those lists are getting longer and longer in the age of cyberwarfare and surveillance states.

As Vice President of Global Healthcare at AT&T, Maria Lensing oversees the telecommunications operator's technology and professional services offerings across the spectrum of medical providers, from solo practitioners and walk-in clinics to giant hospital chains, medical-device vendors and consulting firms. Lensing also sees more interest from traditional service providers -- cable and telecom operators looking to expand or build relationships with their own medical communities, perhaps as an adjunct to smart-home successes or standalone.

Lensing, who took on this role almost a year ago in May 2018, oversees both the sales and technical teams responsible for developing growth initiatives for AT&T's Global Healthcare business -- including products, services and industry-specific solutions. She also very actively promotes business minority inclusion, education and female empowerment programs and has been recognized both within and outside AT&T. Some awards she's received include "Top 40 Under 40" and "Super Woman in Business" from the Memphis Business Journal.

Join Maria Lensing, VP of Global Healthcare at AT&T, on Tuesday, April 23 at 12:00 p.m. ET / 9:00 p.m. PT, when she's the guest on BBWN Radio, hosted by Broadband World News Editor Alison Diana. Register now!

So far, the agenda includes a discussion of technologies such as fiber and 5G; defining the needs and solutions for a widely diverse range of customers; partnering for success in a typically slow-moving, budget-constrained market; learning and dispersing best practices from other verticals and within other business groups; promoting diversity and female empowerment when so many say they're doing so but so little has changed; and what she hopes to accomplish in another year in this role.

Register and post your questions for Maria on BBWN Radio's easy-to-use chat board. We will get to as many questions as possible. Please post questions before and during the broadcast. Once you've registered, you will be led to the chat board page. Talk to you on April 23!

Tune in to Broadband World News Radio on February 14 at 11 a.m. ET / 8 a.m. PT / 4 p.m. UK when John Isch, Practice Director of the Network and Voice Center of Excellence at Orange Business Services, discusses use cases, ROI and misconceptions of software-defined wide-area networks, virtualization and cloud.

Just when you thought the answer to your next technology direction question was clear, the noise around multiple new technology options fills the Internet and airwaves. Multiple 5Gs are being deployed; there's CableLabs' 10G initiative; the ITU and IEEE are toiling around 50G PON – and we haven’t even talked about Wi-Fi6 yet! Is any of this real, do you have to pay attention or can you just let the dust settle and then decide?

Since waiting is often not the best option, let’s demystify technology options, their impact on your business, and how to prepare for whatever the future brings.

In this webinar, Service Providers will learn:

  • Current state of 5G and how it affects everyone, not only mobile network providers.
  • Latest technologies being developed and how they will benefit their networks and subscribers.
  • How to prepare their networks for the future – whatever it may hold.
