Money talks: Calculating the benefits of connected home management

Money talks: Calculating the benefits of connected home management

When talking about WiFi management or broadband security, should the first question service providers ask is “how much is it going to cost me?” Obviously a natural question for any business to ask when security is seen as a cost center. A better question, however, is “how much is it going to save me?” Until now, the financial case for Trusted Home has been made only with statistics about the average difference our customers see when they deploy Trusted Home. But now, we can quantify the benefits in currency terms, and we’re giving broadband service providers the chance to do it for themselves with our new Trusted Home benefits calculator.
The results are eye-opening.

“Wow” your customers without breaking the bank

“Wow” your customers without breaking the bank

Delivering a great broadband experience is at the heart of every ISP.  And delivering this great experience is even more critical when a customer contacts the customer care desk. The customer expects the care rep to understand and solve his problem during the first contact. And the care rep needs to keep truck rolls (engineer visit to the customer’s home) only when absolutely necessary to keep costs down. It’s little wonder that the prospect of customer care efficiencies and effectiveness is a key driver for operator uptake of our Trusted Home Wi-Fi management and security solution.

With the uncertainty surrounding of children going back to school or continuing in-home learning, it is timely to talk about managing kids time on screens. Although no two families’ approach on this topic is the same, there’s strong evidence that many want help in applying screen time limits. In this blog, I share my thoughts on how ISPs can help parents when every family has a different approach to digital parenting.

Cybersecurity in the 5G era: Nightmare or opportunity?

5G is revolutionizing connectivity in the home and on the move. But broadband service providers must consider the security implications. Irdeto recently joined a Telecoms World Asia webinar on Cybersecurity Threats in the 5G era. A key takeaway was the potential for security to be a big competitive differentiator.

Is it time to ditch the term “Smart Home”?

Is it time to ditch the term “Smart Home”?

What’s in a name? For ISPs there could be a whole load of business tied up in a simple change from “smart” to “connected”. Marketing “smart home” solutions could be excluding a huge chunk of the broadband subscriber base that doesn’t realize quite how smart their home has become.
