Building Blocks – Adding Value to the Internet of Things

Cable companies as value-add providers of data from the disparate Internet of Things is on display in the above CableLabs’ demonstration at The Cable Show 2014. Clarke Stevens explains the prototype they created that allows consumers to view the location of public transit buses on an app; an app that can live on multiple devices, including TVs, smart phones and tablets.

He explains how cable providers have the potential to add value through common interfaces, regardless of the format of the underlying data. He also hints that the burgeoning cable WiFi networks will play a part in the development of the sort of applications  envisioned above.
