Re: It's Fiber
That is so true. You laid it out pretty clear. I would say there is still a lot tyo be done in terms of making 5G as a common place for customers. Work surely is in progress.

Re: It's Fiber
As noted, "To provide gigabit service to many users and applications, these small cells must connect to hundreds of thousands -- perhaps millions -- of miles of new fiber optic cable," and that's going to be super important as 5G becomes commonplace. Even rural areas will have to be provided with fiber to keep cititizens secure and safe in their emergency service mandates.

It's Fiber
Notably, it's fiber that best supports both cellular and fixed connectivity.

Ok, we see fiber to be the most suitable option for both cellular and fixed connections. That is good to know.

Re: This gives me an idea
Yes, that may then expose layout of the house etc which may be a compromise. I don't mean to say that this can't be secured appropriately. I was just thinking out loud.

Well, it wouldn't be activated except by alarm, such as a fire alarm.

 

Of course, someone might try to steal the display....

Re: This gives me an idea
Makes total sense. But needless to say - it would pose an additional hurdle of how to secure that information from other intruders with illful thoughts.

This gives me an idea
This gives me an idea, to have a display outside the house accessible to first responders that provides a layout of the house along with telemetry about temperature, smoke, and fire conditions in each room, and alarm-activated TV monitoring. That kind of data could be transmitted to a 911 dispatch by broadband, but they would need to know how to access it.
