Re: Orange
Innovation is almost always thinking outside the box that restricts incumbents from trying new things and taking new risks. If companies are not willing to compete with themselves, they will have to try to compete with disruptive startups at some point....

Innovation is always a bet on something more cost effective with a trade off of not adhering to traditional methods.

Absolutely, there is no innovation without risk. Also innovation is prone to mistakes and failures. The key is to use those learnings and come back stronger and sound. That open to strech, try, risk, fail, learn and evolve to be back are promising factors for any innovation.

Affordable, but
Affordable, but not interoperable yet? That reminds me of the story of a merchant who was told a store down the street was selling a particular item for less, but that they were sold out. The merchant said, "I'll sell them for even less than my competitor after I sell out, too!" That is, low price, but it doesn't quite work yet?

Re: Together
Yes it would surely seem that as noted "Gacon reiterated that financials drove the combo-card strategy," and what's to argue about getting the most for the least investment. It will be interesting to see how that works out competitively in the next few years.

It is great that combo cards are already available from Chinese vendors. Maybe other companies can parter with Huawei and ZTE to purchase the combo cards instead of developing their own.

I love to see companies that are not afraid to take risks, that are innovative and that are willing to stretch and grow and learn from any mistakes made. This will save money and provide the same XGS-PON service at a lower cost for customers.

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.
