As an early adopter of software-defined access, cloud and virtualization, Orange Business Services uses the empowering technology to accelerate change and foster agility across its own infrastructure, and improve its revenue through margin-rich, sticky services that retain enterprise customers' loyalty across its expanding European footprint.

For many of us, home WiFi systems continue to be a pain almost as often as they are a pleasure. For the operators however, they may just turn out to be an untapped window of opportunity.

Consumers are buying millions of IoT devices, from smart thermostats and security systems to intelligent entertainment setups and furniture. Yet many of these devices remain isolated because home users are uncomfortable connecting them to each other – or even their WiFi. After all, their WiFi network was probably designed only to handle a few laptops, a gaming system and a couple of smartphones. Now, demand on the network is surging and even though you're delivering 100 Mbps to 1 Gbps, that doesn't necessarily mean the broadband power is in the right place or reaches every corner of a home.

Even if WiFi coverage is sufficient, typing is not on trend. Voice is far more natural, easier and faster. Using a TV keyboard is archaic when more and more households have access to cloud-based voice services, like Amazon Alexa. This webinar will explore how service providers can create a comfortable, truly smart home for consumers – simultaneously driving up margin and loyalty.
