Calix-Enabling the Smart Home

  1. 1. CANTO Presentation: Enabling the Smart Home
  2. 2. Requirements Defined by Services Mosaics Games Services News Commerce Smart Home Sports Real-time Info Communication
  3. 3. A Massive Shift in Content Distribution <ul><li>Video consumption patterns unquestionably shifting to internet-sourced content, home media distribution hub... but how rapidly? </li></ul>
  4. 4. New Service Models Under Construction <ul><li>Network no longer defined by media type, service providers seeking opportunities to deliver value by connecting targeted content to subs </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Some embracing entire service experience – from content to presentation </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Others focusing on the access “pipe” and fostering strategic partnerships </li></ul></ul>
  5. 5. Smart Home – Consumer Simplicity is Key <ul><li>Where is the home network going… </li></ul><ul><ul><li>One network - any service, anywhere, anytime </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>What access media? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Copper, fiber, wireless… </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>What access technology? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>DSL, PON, pt-to-pt Ethernet, WiMax… </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>How much bandwidth is required? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li><15 Mbps, 20-30 Mbps, >30 Mbps </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>How old is the “digital home”? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Age often defines what physical media is available / pre-wired </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Determines how many man hours to wire </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>What type of data network? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Old networks are not sufficient to deploy demanding next generation applications </li></ul></ul></ul>?
  6. 6. The Customer Premises Challenge <ul><li>Broadband historically has been used for Internet access </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Computers typically near phone and power, less often near coax network </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Homes with multiple computers have networking solution (10/100 Base-T) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Wireless sometimes sold as value add, typically 802.11g or older technology </li></ul></ul><ul><li>IPTV reveals service delivery challenges, exposes networking “faults” </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Multiple endpoints mandate in-home network… beware of older solutions </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>IPTV requires much greater bandwidth than traditional Internet access </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>IPTV is unforgiving… packet loss = customer dissatisfaction, service call </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Most existing home networks do not address quality of service (QoS) </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Once you enter the home, everything becomes “your problem” </li></ul><ul><ul><li>User experience becomes indistinguishable from the service provider </li></ul></ul>
  7. 7. Physical Network Media Choices <ul><li>Wire building with CAT5 (Ethernet) </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Can be expensive (2 people for 3-4 hours) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Provides dedicated pt-to-pt bandwidth </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Liability risk, some homeowners will not allow home re-wiring </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Leverage existing premises wiring </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Coax network (shared) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Power line network (shared) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Phone line network (shared) </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Use wireless technology </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Designed for data applications, Internet access </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Potentially problematic for IPTV (pre 802.11n) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>New solutions (Ruckus Wireless) rapidly solving issues </li></ul></ul></ul>Home Bandwidth Scale 200+ Capacity (Mbps) Wireless: 802.11n (MiMo Tech.) Wired: Phone Line (HPNA v3.0+) Wired: Power Line (HomePlug AV) Wired: CAT5 (pt-to-pt) COAX (MOCA / HPNA v3.1) 150+ 100+ 50+
