Building Smart Homes for Better Lives
Following Google’s acquisition of startups Nest Labs and Dropcam, the ‘smart home’ has moved from being a conceptual probability to become an accepted reality. Smart homes use next-generation information technologies including M2M, mobile internet, cloud computing, and big data to create secure, low-carbon, comfortable, and enjoyable home environments based on feature-rich network platforms of telecom operators.
Smart home helps operators to increase revenue
Smart homes not only bring rich new experiences to users, they also help operators to increase revenues. Operators can provide different smart home packages with various value added services, such as home entertainment, visual communications, home monitoring and the intelligent housing. Smart home applications, particularly home entertainment, visual communication and home monitoring, require high bandwidth and an increased wire and wireless data flow.
