Axiros to Present on IoT and Device Management at the CONNECTIONS™ Summit at CES

5 January 2015 – LAS VEGAS – Axiros, the technology leader in device management, TR-069, and IoT solutions for service providers, enterprises, and OEMs, announced today that Vice President Peter LeBlanc will participate as a speaker at Parks Associates’ 9th annual CONNECTIONS™ Summit at 2015 International CES Tech West, tomorrow, January 6, 2015, in the Venetian Ballrooms in Las Vegas. LeBlanc will participate in the session Platforms, Devices, & Interoperability in the Smart Home on Tuesday at 3:45 pm.

CONNECTIONS™ Summit focuses on the evolving landscape for the connected home, including sessions on connected devices, next-generation TV services and streaming media, IoT and smart home technologies, and consumer tech support. CONNECTIONS™ Summit provides insights into consumer adoption, emerging business models, new partnership opportunities, and the changing technology landscape with insights from leading executives and networking opportunities with the leading analysts in the connected home.

“The ability of devices, applications and services to work together seamlessly is critical for the success of the Smart Home,“ said Peter LeBlanc, Vice President of Axiros. “We are excited to participate in the 2015 CONNECTIONS™ Summit, bringing our unique perspective of interoperable fixed and wireline broadband device management as we translate more than a decade of experience for the Smart Home and Internet of Things.”

The interactive panel session, moderated by Tom Kerber, Director of Research for Home Controls & Energy at Parks Associates, examines efforts to achieve interoperability and its importance in realizing the vision of the connected home. LeBlanc will specifically address the breadth of consumer interest in the smart home, which crosses multiple categories, and how the strength of that demand relies on all products working seamlessly together.

Axiros excels in this area. Its products are based on the Broadband Forum TR-069 standard which is proven on a half-billion devices. This allows service and application providers to implement a complete management cycle for their smart home devices - from provisioning, to support and monitoring of services. Finally, all Axiros solutions are open and interoperable giving service providers the ability to manage and support any device at any time.

According to Parks Associates research:

  • Approximately two-thirds of U.S. broadband households are unfamiliar with smart home products or services.
  • Nearly 70% of U.S. broadband households are unfamiliar with where to buy smart home products.
  • Sales of smart home devices exceeded 20 million units by the end of 2014 and will increase to 36 million units by 2017.

“The connected home continues to develop into a feature-rich collection of CE devices, broadband-enabled services, and multifunctional set-top boxes and residential gateways,” said Stuart Sikes, President, Parks Associates. “We are excited to hear from Axiros about their contributions for servicing and managing this this evolving smart home ecosystem.”

CONNECTIONS™ Summit with sponsorship support from Axiros, will take place on Tuesday, January 6, at CES Tech West in the Venetian Ballrooms Level 1, Casanova Rooms 601-603. A networking reception, sponsored by Greenwave Systems, will immediately follow the event.
