Re: The Battle for The Residential Edge
I have--and I will continue to tinker and experiment.      We also need to understand that we can't impede progress--and the legacy players have to realize that or else they'd be relegated to the dustbin of history.

Re: The Battle for The Residential Edge
@MikeP688 ...  You may have gone 100% OTT and done it all yourself.  However, for the mass market the NetCo is the logical entity to offer and SUPPORT smart home services either directly or on a neutral host basis.

Re: The Battle for The Residential Edge
It is interesting to see this battle "looming"--but I am under the impression that the battle has already been won--as I write this, I have a smart hub in my house tied into the net, An Amazon FireTV , A Roku Player all tied into the Wi-Fi Network--with the next phase I hope to be a thru "Smart Home".    So, although it is welcome, we're already here--right?

The Battle for The Residential Edge
Mari,

What you describe is a low level skirmish in the big battle for the residential edge.

Be happy to discuss....

Re: capacity
>Why does moving one device upstairs reduce the capacity that much? 

As the distance of the device and the WiFi router increases as the device moves upstairs, the WiFi signal strength received decreases and its signal strength ratio to the surrounding radio frequency noise deteriorates. The transmission speed between the router and the device must slow down to compensate the weak signal and higher noise ratio. Transmitting the same amount of information (number of megabytes) now takes longer at this slower speed and it means the radio frequency is monopolise for a longer time by this device. Other devices on the network will have to wait to receive or transmit their data and in a given interval they will have a shorter time share remaing than if the first device had been able to transmit its data at high speed.

This effect is similar to many people crowded in a noisy bar with loud background music. As long as your friends are close, they can shout in your ear and talk relatively quickly. As soon as they start to move away from you a significant distance with all the noise around you, they  start to speak loudly but more slowly so we can comprehend over the noise.
