Broadband Word Forum is the only global operator-led event for the networks industry. The program will be exploring the industry buzz surrounding key topics from access technologies to in-home connectivity and new services.
When: October 15-17, 2019
Where: RAI Convention Center, Amsterdam
Meet us at booth H30!
At BBWF 2019, devolo is presenting itself as a strong partner for international telecommunications companies and ISPs; with a new service portfolio, solutions for perfect Mesh WiFi with powerline communications as a strong backbone and a look at the evolution of home networking. We also invite visitors to a fireside chat titled “Wire the WiFi” at 5 pm on 16 October with Sebastian Richter, Senior Product Manager Operator Solutions. The chat will be moderated by Senior Analyst Michael Philpott from Ovum Research.
1. Why is home networking such an important topic at an operator-led event?
Because the Internet of Things is moving into our homes, making it as important to talk about home networks as it is to talk about the best access technology: dead zones are no longer tolerable. Therefore, we need to talk about a solution, that can secure the availability of WiFi or wired Internet access while at the same time it sets customers free from bothering with setup and maintenance.
2. What new technologies are you particularly interested in at the moment?
For us, of course, the latest powerline technology based on the second generation of G.hn chips is important. Not only because it enables a performance boost but also, because it helps carriers and ISPs to deliver on the promise to provide highspeed connections anywhere at home. Moreover, using powerline as backbone for Mesh WiFi is the best way to save precious WiFi spectrum in the 5 GHz band.
3. What predictions do you have for home networking solutions within the next 12 to 18 months?
Buzzwords will turn into concrete products or will be part of upgrades to existing offers. E. g. we will see the spread of EasyMesh and the arrival of WiFi 6. All in all, the network will become increasingly intelligent and “self-organising”.
