If you follow Telecompetitor regularly, you know we pay close attention to developments involving the digital home. Check out our coverage here. We’re really at the beginning stages of this important trend, as the mainstream public is now beginning to realize the value that the intersection of broadband, apps, and the home can add to their life and their lifestyle.
But what is the business opportunity and what are the technologies that enable it? That’s the focus of our fourth annual Digital Home Summit, which takes place September 26-27 at the FTTH Conference in Dallas. Our executive summit will place this emerging business opportunity into context for broadband carriers. It’s an important focus, given the need to identify additional revenue sources in a changing broadband carrier business environment.
Our keynote speaker, Verizon executive Ann Shaub, who is responsible for Verizon’s Connected Home program and their broadband CPE portfolio, will offer great insight into how Verizon views the digital home opportunity and the progress they are seeing in the marketplace with their smart home initiatives.
Other important topics will include:
- Hosted Middleware: A Shared Approach to IPTV
- My Cloud: Understanding Consumer Cloud Adoption
- Beyond Home Security: A Comprehensive Approach to the Managed Home Opportunity
- TV Everywhere in the Home
- Best Practices for In-Home Tech Support
- Taming the OTT Beast: Success Strategies for Integrating OTT
We’ve assembled a great group of digital home and broadband ecosystem thought leaders from leading companies and organizations including CHR Solutions, Alcatel-Lucent, Finley Engineering, Qualcomm, Parks Associates, Boxee, Microsoft, TDG, iControl, HomePNA, MoCA, HomeGrid Forum, IHS, Z-Wave, and more.
