With consumers demanding more and more connectivity from the electronics devices they bring into the home the Connected Home is becoming a reality. In addition to connectivity among devices in the home consumers also want to leverage the always-on capability of broadband Internet services to bring additional capability to devices in the home and to access the home remotely.

The Connected Home however is more than providing connectivity. Consumers also want to have services and multimedia content associated with their devices. And service providers want to have management and support capabilities that work seamlessly across device types.

This talk will discuss elements of the Connected Home from connectivity and devices to services and applications.
