The Future Home in the 5G Era

Next generation strategies for hyper-connected living.

Overview

Home has become the digital hub for all life’s interactions and activities – where you work, educate your children, entertain family and interact with those near and far. Evolving beyond today’s request-based or scheduled connected home to tomorrow’s proactive Future Home will deliver on the promise of seamless digital services that improve life.

The Future Home’s powerful technology ecosystem can provide customers with hyper-personalization, evolving the digital assistant to a predictive, AI-based support system. Hyper-connected living is on the cusp of reality, generating a tidal wave of new data.

The Future Home, enabled by 5G, edge computing, AI/ML and cloud is within sight, but fragmentation, lack of orchestration and the initial cost of connected devices are holding us back.

We’re helping communications industry leaders capture the data trove in the home with the power of 5G and edge. Those that have the vision to see the opportunity, courage to move and agility will win.
