|Published: December 15, 2014||Content info: 42 pages||
The futuristic vision of a connected home sounds like a work of science fiction, but the reality is that the technology is already available and the emergence of connected homes is more a matter of marketing than science.
Global companies such as Samsung, Philips and Honeywell already offer products like lights, thermostats and appliances that can be controlled via an application on a smart phone. High profile announcements from the tech giants Google and Apple illustrate the levels of interest that the sector is commanding.
Mobile operators across the world are looking at these developments in order to identify opportunities for themselves, capitalising on their capabilities as connectivity providers, in the connected home space.
The connected home holds potential for new revenues, improved customer retention and the Big Data business. Some are relying on it as the key to the next level of service bundling - Quintuple Play.
This report seeks to outline the experiences of mobile operators to date, examining the business models and technical solutions that have been adopted, to identify lessons for those MNOs considering their connected home strategies.
