We now live in a time where most of us have heard of smart speakers and quite a few of us have one (or two or more). According to our friends at Gartner, Ovum, and Voicebot.ai who specialize in smart speaker research, the world has adopted these tiny devices into their homes at an incredible rate. Living rooms and kitchens are the most popular locations to place them, and Amazon has over 70% of the market. Looking at recent reports, 1 in 5 U.S. adults have a smart speaker, for a total of over 48M in the U.S. alone.

Access to the internet has never been easier. Your phone has wifi data while at home and wireless data while on the go. Your favorite café and store offer wifi to guests. Your work files can be accessed remotely from across the world. While we can access whatever we want from wherever we want, there needs to be restrictions set in place to regulate who and what is being accessed. Controls, whether it be parental, employer, or business, are becoming increasingly important.

The challenge from our communication service provider customers is very clear – we need new applications and services to protect and grow ARPU.  We need differentiated new offerings that go beyond connectivity and security of our networks.  We need to launch new solutions much faster than before.  We need to compete on more than just price.  And my favorite ask – we need access to the latest digital technologies, so that our solutions include an exceptional user experience.

Part 2

One of the recent “hot” products entering the market are smart speakers.  No, I’m not talking about a speaker that will refuse to play Nickelback or clean up the modern music to adjust language for family consumption (that is actually not a bad idea).

This is part 2 of the blog series "Can Communications Service Providers Turn Dumb-Pipes to Differentiated Services?" Read part 1 here

 by the CRTC
(Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission – the equivalent of the FCC in US) for trying to offer a “free data” ride to certain OTT services to differentiate and attract users.  Can we say the service providers are struggling?  Yup! It has been tough and not a lot of fun.
