Re: 8!
Happy March..and Happy Spring!!!   It blew me away-it is one reason why I remain optimistic about tech as I am listening to music play in the background at My office on my Amazon Echo--and as I see evolutions such as a wheelchair that allows the paralyzed to stand back up....

Hopefully the uneven distribution of broadband will go away once SpaceX and others fully deploy global LEO satellites for wireless internet connections. It's not that far off in the future, but I suppose it may take some time for the service to be truly affordable to the masses.

Whoa. How does that even work? Why do blind users need a smart watch? Does it speak to them instead of using a visual interface?

Re: 8!
My guess is inline with yours. It is very early on and i don't expect this for rural areas yet.

confused a bit
I'm trying to figure out the connection between NGPON2 and the Intelligent Edge. I thought NGPON2 was a passive optical network, while the Intelligent Edge of a network implied some processing at the edge of the network instead of located all in the cloud, at a distance. If the network is passive, how is there processing going on at the edge of it (processing within the network, that is)? Am I mixing concepts up?

Some of the stuff is quite interesting--for me, the smart watch for the blind blew me away--I was not impressed (as I noted in a thought for Susan who I look forward to getting her thoughts as her schedule permits as she's there now) abou the 2K Phone....

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.
