Re: 5G TV
@Susan I agree. We need to think things through before doing them just because we can.

Re: 5G TV
Ariella: Yes. Who needs the NSA if your own family, partner, anyone basically can track your movements through a TV set. Everything has its pros and cons. Also, what about those CCTV cameras for smart homes with an application that alerts you if someone enters or exits your home. Yes, very useful to prevent burglary but also a useful device to track every movement of those living in the house. Here again, humans are not ready for the technology. It creates other sort of problems.

Re: 5G TV
@Ariella. I am in shock. I never thought about doing that. Why would a family member track you unless it is a child I don't see the benefit. That is truly scary. I am installing a VPN and security software on my phone tomorrow.

Re: 5G TV
@Susan Fourtan, I agree. Companies neglect security measures. Security measures are not a major focal point until a data breach or security breach occurs. That is tragic. It will take a tragic accident before companies realize how important security is and why it needs to be part of the implementation plan.

Elderly
This technology is great for the elderly, people who are not mobile or people with disabilities. It will allow them to feel empowered and self-sufficient. This will encourage this group of people to embrace technology and use it to make life easier.

5G TV
I have been waiting for this technology. Finally it is here. Smart TV should be able to download content. Hopefully other companies will realize that customers don't want several devices to view a service such as cable TV or AR.

Re: 5G TV
@afwriter yes, I'd guess it may be possible for the parent to justify that b/c an underage child is still the parent's responsibility. But for an ex, it should be a crime.

Re: 5G TV
I love all this new technology but it is a fear of mine to buy an expensive piece of tech only to have something dumb and unnecessary render the entire unit useless.

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.
