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.

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.
