About the book

The Future Home in the 5G Era looks at new hyper-connected home environments in which devices and apps will work together seamlessly to respond to and anticipate customers' needs, all with maximum security and privacy. Enabled by 5G, AI, and other new technologies such as eSim and edge computing, the Future Home's powerful service ecosystems will be a quantum leap from today's fragmented smart home technology, effectively extending the boundaries of the home even beyond the traditional bounds of the physical, to ultimately make consumers feel 'at home' anywhere. This will create tremendous opportunities for businesses including communication service providers (CSPs), device manufacturers and app developers, as well as those providing services in diverse sectors such as entertainment, health and social care, education, retail, and more.

The Future Home in the 5G Era combines original research from Accenture with practical insights and examples, showing how intelligently orchestrated Future Homes can yield economic success for businesses. Written by leaders of strategy and technology consultancy at Accenture, the authors have vast industry experience leading major units of Fortune 500 companies and start-ups.

This book looks at how businesses, especially CSPs, can overcome the challenges and capture the multi-billion-dollar Future Home market by putting strategic emphasis on excellent customer experiences, developing new business models, and turning their organizations into competitively agile platform-based innovators. For business leaders in any sector relevant to the Future Home, this book is an indispensable and value-creating guide.
