There is much happening within the digital home these days. The number of connected devices is on the rise and the applications that they enable are growing as well. From broader entertainment options, to home control and monitoring, to bandwidth management, digital home realities are driving much of the broadband discussion. More and more of the discussion now focuses on a maturing business opportunity than just a bunch of disparate broadband applications, suggesting a turning point may have arrived.
For example, there is much more clarity surrounding in-home distribution platforms. Whether it’s MoCA, HPNA, or HomePlug, or emerging platforms like HomeGrid, nVoy and 802.11ac, service providers now have a range of options to explore for their digital home strategies. We’re proud to be producing our fifth annual Digital Home Summit, where an in-depth look at these and other topics will take place.
Representatives from MoCA, HomeGrid, HomePlug, and the nVoy consortium will be present to outline and discuss these important home networking technologies and their role with service providers. In addition, we’ll explore other key digital home topics including the emergence of BroadbandTV, multiscreen video, and key lessons learned from home security and monitoring. Leading industry analysts from Parks Associates and Strategy Analytics will provide expert insight into these and other topics. Our keynote speaker, Katie Espeseth, Vice President of New Products, for EPB Fiber Optics will outline how this leading Gigabit broadband service provider operates a world class broadband network, highlighting the role that smart grid will play for their subscribers.
