Re: Shields Energy Solution
@batye It certainly does. I believe in anything to save the environment and conserve energy.  Seven miles below sea level, the world's deepest ocean level, a plastic garbage bag was found. That's what is worrying me right now. All the plastics that don't really disintegrate.

Re: Shields Energy Solution
Certainly there has been lot of progress with enery consumption. There is still room for improvement ofcourse. As we move along we see more and more of smart featured lights installed in offices, households.

Re: Shields Energy Solution
That is the hope. If we look back 10-15 years not that many offices even had sensors for lights. I remember all offices use to have all lights on bright whole night though there is o one in the office. If we think today, it really pinches hard about the wasted energy. We surely made good progress. So slowly but surely we will progress.

Re: Shields Energy Solution
@ms.akkineni Great point about the sensors, which control the amount of energy consumption. Probably older buildings still are not energy-efficient, but hopefully one day everyone will have this consciousness about working to save energy and resources before it's too late. Shields is very forward-thinking and on the right track.

Tweaking vs bundling
Tweaking energy consumption sounds like a breeze next to bundling utility services, espcially in the US market. Are we seriously anywhere close to that level of bundling in the US, or did I misread this?

Re: Shields Energy Solution
Excellent point about energy savings. I've seen a lot more sensors as well - at least in newer buildings. Little signs in hallways of older buildings remind you to turn out the light when you're leaving an office.

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.
