Defining the Connected Home

The connected home is a term used frequently but often defined ambiguously. For Parks Associates, the connected home is comprised of the following elements:
  • Access services - including broadband, television, landline communications, and mobile services
  • Content and value-added services that complement the core access services
  • Devices that connect to these access services and each other, creating a network that can share content and resources throughout the home
  • Consumer electronics manufacturers, the PC industry, pay-television service providers, and broadband providers are driving the development of the connected home, for obvious reasons, as the interplay of these elements expands the businesses for all these players.
Learn more about how Parks Associates categorizes the major business strategies involved in the connected home. Read the September Parks Points today.
