With 60-80% of technical support calls resulting in escalations, operations automation in the home network is an imperative for broadband providers, according to industry-first research from Incognito and Analysys Mason. The research quantifies significant operational efficiencies by introducing digital channels for home users, customer care, network operations, and looks at how these can improve the experience for residential subscribers.

Join Incognito and Analysys Mason on June 13 at 10:00 a.m. EST to learn:

  • Where to introduce home network operations automation to get maximum value;
  • How to reduce inbound technical support calls by a third, alleviate customer care escalations, and enjoy a 25% reduction in truck rolls;
  • How this will enable a differentiated and positive experience for digital home network subscribers.


Alison Diana, Editor, Broadband World News
Alison Diana always dreamed of being a veterinarian – until she saw a documentary of a vet removing an alligator's eye. With a love of English but no desire to be a teacher, Alison had no idea what she would do until she earned a four-year, full-tuition journalism scholarship to the School of Visual Arts and fell in love with feature writing.

An internship at Rolling Stone encouraged Alison to mix her love of music and writing until she answered an ad in a local newspaper for a position at a B2B channel publication. And so her 25-year career covering solution and service providers; technologies from HPC and UC&C to cloud and security, and business began.

Alison spent 10 years at CRN, before launching a successful freelance career writing for publications including InformationWeek, VARBusiness, Redmond Channel Partner, numerous TechTarget sites, and Florida Today. She later rejoined UBM as part of the DeusM team before heading InformationWeek's health IT section. Alison – who lives on Florida's Space Coast with her husband, teen daughter, and two spoiled cats – became part of the Light Reading team as editor at The New IP. In late May of this year, she was named Ambassador of the New IP Agency, a not-for-profit independent initiative providing information, education, analysis, community services and testing to support and accelerate the development of a global economy based on open, advanced, virtualized IP networks.
