  • What are the 3 key ingredients to deliver a high quality connected home experience?
  • What do operators need to do to tame the increasing complexity of the internet of things and the differing technologies and services?

  • Are we destined for lots of vertical non-integrated services, or will service providers join the dots up and deliver their subscribers more under one bundled bill?
