Re: Consumer Usage
Susan Fourtan, I always wondered why consumers would purchase both Amazon and Google. It seems as though they would cater to different types of consumers. However, I know people with both. My cousin has both however he uses Alexa daily. I guess it depends on your needs or how you are feeling on any given day. :)

Re: Google re-branding....
@Susan Fourtané. I have the same sentiments. Google needs to name their Google Assistant. Apple has Siri and Amazon has Alexa. Google naming their device would personalize or humanize it and make it more appealing.

Re: Google re-branding....
@mhhf1ve. I agree. But none of the names are that great. However, the name of Amazon Alexa is that Alexa is the name of the woman speaking.

Re: Consumer Usage
I love Siri. But I don't have an Echo. So for me Siri is the best.

Re: Consumer Usage
I have never used Google home, but what I can say is that I used to think that Siri was amazing until I got an Echo and now I can't stand to use Siri.

Re: Google re-branding....
I am a fan of Google docs as it makes sharing information easier, and a lot of my clients use it, but I have to say you are right, I feel like almost everyone I know has a Gmail account.

In the corporate space? How? Didn't Google kill all of Google+?

Re: Consumer Usage
That's a great idea. I also would like to see data from people who own both Amazon and Google devices smart home devices. Have you heard comments from those people you know? Do they use more Google, Amazon? Do they prefer one over the other?

Re: Google re-branding....
That's the advantage of being an experimental company. If a product doesn't work, it's cheaper to kill it. Why Google would invest paying people to maintain a non-sucessful product when they can be creating a new experiment instead?

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.
