Beyond the Connected Home & Towards the Connected Life

The extension of communications service providers’ business beyond the network demarcation point and into the home is in full swing, as evidenced by the recent introduction of connected home services from the major operators. In this interview, Kevin Petersen of AT&T provides an overview of their offering that goes beyond the home and encompasses what Peterson terms the “Digital Life”. Petersen points out that, although it could operate over any broadband network, AT&T is offering it as a retail service, “We are not wholesaling it in the states.”

Whether or not AT&T is thinking of offering this as a wholesale offering outside the U.S., would be the type of follow-up that attendees of CONNECTIONS™ Europe will get a chance to ask Petersen when he provides a keynote speech at this November 2013 event.
