Re: Streaming Devices
Well said. Developing and deploying apps have become like creating a website. Things with set-top boxes have become challenging especially considering many devices from all diffreent manufactureres and their configurations. Not very easy to have everything ste up withut spending time and effrt.

Re: Streaming Devices
Yes, agree with you that this trend is not a bad change at all. As long as the trend doesn't drive you that is ok.

Re: Streaming Devices
That is very true. The trend is set in such a way that no one is ready to opt for any new device which is not smart. It makes total sense that it has all valid reasons to be that way for compatibility.

I would say there could be a bit of variance of what we see in the reports. But the trend is something that is a clear indication of how things are changing for sure.

Re: Streaming Devices
I don't see that to be necessarily a bad thing--but as I have said consistently, we have to be in control and in charge--that's the key driving force for us to assess.

Re: Mobile
I"m always  sceptical of attributing stock prices and forecasting same on results of news reports and stats coming from the company. Your chances are probably 50/50 of winning any bet on the future movement of those prices if relying on a news report I would guess.

"The falling cable capex at Charter also comes alongside expected decrease in spending on set-top boxes and other consumer premises equipment (CPE) as the MSO puts more focus on streaming apps that deliver its pay-TV service"

It's crazy to see how far we've come in such a short time. You can't buy a device anymore that isn't already "smart." Even the original Roku box and amazon fire stick are starting to go by the wayside.

I'm sure developing and deploying an app is a lot cheaper for companies than everything involved with set-top boxes.

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.
