LONDON, November 15, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --

http://www.visiongain.com/Report/715/Connected-Homes-Report-2011-2016-A-Paradigm-Shift-in-the-Way-we-Live

Never before have operators needed to widen revenue streams more than they do in 2011. The Connected Home, once a concept is now a reality, once poised to transform the way we live. Operators, OEMs, Infrastructure vendors and content provider revenues are all set to benefit from the uptake of Smart Homes. Several key operators have already partnered with content providers and OEMs to capitalise on the unique monestiable opportunities offered by an ecosystem of smart devices.  For new market entrants the time to act is now. As this report outlines, the life cycle stage of the Connected Home is about to enter the rapid growth phase.

The Connected Home can turn all subscriber households into high ARPU households. For content providers the Connected Home will provide a surge in demand for commercial content. On the verge of global LTE roll out, feature-rich apps, HD quality streaming content and numerous other opportunities await Connected Home ecosystem members.  Overall, the Connected Home's interoperability allows content and services to be delivered to ultimately more end-points, thus increasing revenue opportunities for both content and service providers.

Our timely and holistic research shows that many consumers are already utilising various devices and services for low-level smart home functionality. Building on a foundation of consumer interest ecosystem members must form strategic partnerships to position them for success in the Connected Home market. Government mandates on energy consumption will provide the driving force for smart meter uptake, for which OEM's can gain significant revenues with connected appliances. Associated apps and software will provide the operator revenues from Smart Grid services and yet this forms only a small part of the vast opportunity provided by the Connected Home. With automation, home health, cloud services and entertainment content creating an ecosystem of vast potential the Connected Home is an inevitability.
