Now more than ever, WiFi is critical for every broadband consumer; it underpins the smart home experience, delivering the connectivity needed for work, rest and play. But is it valuable? For service providers, WiFi creates the foundation and opportunity to deliver a plethora of new and highly personalized services, driven by data. In this presentation, Adam Hotchkiss VP of Customer Solutions, Plume, examines why WiFi––while critical for in-home infrastructure––is not valuable without a wider services proposition on top. He will discuss recent changes in the underlying technology, how WiFi fits with consumers’ changing lifestyles, and how service providers can take this critical technology beyond utility.
