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?

That's interesting. Anyone has an idea of any feasible timeline for this potential collaboration?

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?

Re: 8!
Agreed @Joe--but the local Sprint folks I chatted with last year during ai Smart Cities workshop I was at were quite optimistic and asked my help to facilitate a conversation with my city-that's why I decided to tag it as I did-I also do think in the current environment it will go thru.

Consumers are buying millions of IoT devices, from smart thermostats and security systems to intelligent entertainment setups and furniture. Yet many of these devices remain isolated because home users are uncomfortable connecting them to each other or even their WiFi. After all, their WiFi network was probably designed only to handle a few laptops, a gaming system and a couple of smartphones. Now, demand on the network is surging and even though you're delivering 100 Mbps to 1 Gbps, that doesn't necessarily mean the broadband power is in the right place or reaches every corner of a home.

Even if WiFi coverage is sufficient, typing is not on trend. Voice is far more natural, easier and faster. Using a TV keyboard is archaic when more and more households have access to cloud-based voice services, like Amazon Alexa. This webinar will explore how service providers can create a comfortable, truly smart home for consumers simultaneously driving up margin and loyalty.
