post-modern cars?
> "If I drive a modern car today, I can pretty much do it without using my feet because there is an "autopilot" who controls speed, distance and lane-keeping on my behalf."

I guess my car isn't modern because it doesn't do any of that... I wonder how self-driving cars will actually become a thing -- I doubt it will happen suddenly. Unless DMV regulations outlaw autonomous driving until just about every automaker offers it, and then the law suddenly allows self-driving cars on a specific date?

Connected clothes? Uh.. how does one wash these things? I guess after smartwatches, there will be smart shoes.. and belts? and other accessories that don't need to be washed.. or maybe we just have disposable smart clothes? But that doesn't sound very "smart" to make connected clothes disposable....

Re: I like it
And I can hardly wait to see the future that "will open the door to new device categories, such as connected clothes." That seems to be a category that leaves some creative imagination to guess what that might mean.

I like it: if I understood correctly, we can expect the elimination of apps to access broadband, even better automatic credentialing in WiFi (wait, the Elders of the Internet know about ME?), artifical intelligence as only a step to what comes next, and, finally, lane-keeping technology.

Today’s access network architecture is under mounting pressure due to a continued surge in the number of connected devices, a proliferation of bandwidth-intensive customer applications and dramatic shifts in usage patterns related to the pandemic, such as work-from-home and e-learning.

Learn why now is the right time for cable operators to build greenfield networks or expand their existing networks with 10G PON, arming customers with high-speed symmetrical broadband. Gain a clear understanding of the drivers impacting the access network and the various approaches being considered to deliver higher speed services. Plus, find out the best practices that operators are employing as they leverage the latest in passive optical technology to future-proof their networks.

Topics to be covered include:

  • Node + 0 (Fiber Deep)
  • DOCSIS 3.1, DOCSIS 4.0 (FDX/ESD)
  • FTTP and 10G PON
  • XGS-PON, NG-PON2
  • Provisioning 10G PON within a DOCSIS B/OSS environment
