Re: smart trash cans
Oh yeah, i always have stories with self pay registers in general not walmart in specific. There is always price discrepancy issue, especially when the product has a sale / promotional / clearance price. The stcker price and the system price is not in sync atleast 50% of the time. I prefer to go to a regular register if i have any sale items.

Re: smart trash cans
I swear I must be considerable less smart than the smart checkout lanes at the local stores here. Almost always I've had to ask for help not only to correct those incorrect sale priced items but to figure out how to use the scanning unit itself.

Re: Chattanooga
I like the idea of a Jetsons-like future, but instead, we have what just happened to the city of Baltimore. When hackers are taking cities hostage we aren't ready for smart cities.

Wait a few years for satellite broadband?
Fiber is expensive to put in the ground... I suspect next generation satellite broadband is going to gain traction in the next few years as the backhaul for both rural and urban locations.

Re: smart trash cans
Small scales is an issue with self checkout lanes. In addition i personally experienced pricing confusions for items on sale. Those never scan right price and a sales person has to intervene. Cleary an issue with their algorithm or updating adequate price changes in their inventory sysem - one of the two issues is something that needs t be addressed.

I clearly missed this. Never knew Chattanoga got far in this smrt gme. Not sure how i missed this. I knew Boston was one of the first cities to be getting ready with smart fetures. Good to find out this development for small cities.

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.
