Delivering a superior smart home experience is a potential game-changer for service providers.

As the classic triple-play comes under pressure from the unbundling of TV and communications services, offering support for high-quality streaming with ubiquitous in-home connectivity and rock-solid cybersecurity could be a unique selling point for broadband operators that really sets them apart from ‘dumb-pipe’ competitors. Enabling the smart home experience could be the key to both safeguarding margins and ensuring subscriber loyalty.

Bringing together expert speakers from research powerhouse Omdia, security and intelligent edge specialist Akamai and the personalised smart services pioneer Plume, this Symposium session from Digital TV Europe will explore how service providers can lean on the strengths of their networks to deliver a superior smart home experience.

Discussion topics

  • What can service providers offer to facilitate a compelling smart home experience?
  • How can service providers deliver the level of connected device security needed to give consumers confidence?
  • How can they lean on the strengths of their networks and also leverage big data and AI intelligence to differentiate and optimize their proposition?
  • Why the cloud presents a universal opportunity for all service providers, irrespective of size or location, to streamline OPEX and monetise the smart home
  • What’s the formula for service success?
