Solutions Providers Are Telcos, Too

Technology advances such as IP, Wi-Fi, WiMAX and broadband over powerline (BPL) can put solutions providers in the telco seat. Now, they can install systems that provide voice, Internet, TV, security and controls to entire buildings and campuses. Its like being a mini telephone company for a corporate office or high-rise apartment building. Find out how you can make this model work for you and your clients during todays informative session.

With a wide portfolio at its disposal, an integrator that provides video conferencing, cable TV, local and longdistance telephone services and interactive video can replace the telco or cable provider within a building previously overlooked by carriers. It also can construct, operate and service private cable TV and video services, then offer a revenue share to the property owners on the usage.

Speaker John Joyce, president and CEO at Ambient Corp., will discuss how Ambient recently wired up an Upper West Side Manhattan high-rise building, using BPL products that connect to the buildings existing electrical infrastructure. Data, voice and video signals are distributed throughout the building, and residents use them for common home applications such as high-speed Internet access, video streaming, VoIP, home networking and other property landlord/manager-specific applications.

Richard Mehrer, vice president of MDU/MTU Business Unit for Telkonet Inc., also will join the discussion. Telkonet develops and markets technology for the transmission of high-speed voice, video and data communications over the existing electrical wiring within a building. The buildings existing electrical wiring becomes the backbone of the local area network, which converts virtually every electrical outlet into a high-speed data port, without the costly installation of additional wiring or major disruption of business activity.

Applications supported by the Telkonet platform include but are not limited to: VoIP telephones, Internet connectivity, local area networking, video conferencing, closed circuit security surveillance and a host of other information services.
