ABI Research recently stated here that connected home devices are
the “Next Big Thing” in the consumer electronics industry with a global
market value growing by a compound average of 23% annually over the next five
years to more than $10 billion in 2014.
This correlates with
Broadband Forum's claim in their recent whitepaper, where they acknowledge that the global demand for broadband
Internet access is as strong as ever. As I indicated in my earlier blog post, there are several use cases that are leading to this growth of internet traffic and increased broadband need.
