2021 Winter Magazine

Welcome to Telecom for Wellness Opportunity Discussions

Welcome to our 2021 winter magazine.

The wellness industry is a multi-trillion dollar industry. There are many wellness-related areas where Telecom operators can contribute. Our previous 2021 summer magazine focused on Aging in Place. We have been assisting the Cable industry to recognize the problems facing the Wellness industry and how they can create a win-win inter-industry opportunity. In this magazine, we expand what we call Telecom for Wellness (T4W) into Telehealth support areas.

We start the magazine with Jim positioning how service integrators can assist the Cable industry in addressing the Telecom for Wellness opportunities. Followed by multiple papers that we have published in different reputable cable operators’ journals on the Telehealth business case, Telehealth company survey, a high-level end to end architecture to realize such T4W services, and a very objective way of identifying the metadata framework that can be developed in such an inter-industry collaboration. Our team has significant details beyond what is presented in these papers. Feel free to ask for additional information.

In addition to the revenue transformations, the other major challenge faced by the operators is the access transformation-related issues, where they spend significant resources. In this magazine, we discuss how to develop collaborative planning to meet this challenge. Our team is also working on the next-generation evolution of customer premise networks at SCTE, which is motivated by Rajesh. Our partner, XONA, presents their thoughts on if 5G can reduce the digital divide between urban and rural broadband support.
