Mainstream Consumer Media Networking

New home network management software will improve ease-of-use for consumers and reduce the level of customer support required, reports In-Stat. The hardware-agnostic consumer network management and setup software market will expand at a compound annual growth rate of well over 100 percent for both aggressive and conservative forecast scenarios.

�This software will be instrumental in helping to remove the barriers to widespread adoption of hot, new digital-living technologies,� says Joyce Putscher, In-Stat analyst. �The marketplace convergence of networks, applications, and uses combines multiple types of networks and devices into a seamless consumer experience. We are about to enter an era of media networking for the mainstream consumer.�

In-Stat found the following regarding this market:

* Market drivers include an easier way to setup and manage consumers� networks, especially as the complexity factor is growing with more network-capable devices. This reduces service calls, benefiting the consumer, equipment vendor, and service provider.
* Drivers also include special functionalities, like remote access, which can add to providers' revenue streams as well as they add to the value of a home network for consumers.
* Support will need to be integrated into home network management software that will support networking via powerline, HPNA, and coax.

Trillion-Dollar Smart Power Grid Transformation

The global energy landscape is undergoing a significant transformation. Renewable energy sources like solar and wind are rapidly gaining ground as we transition towards net-zero emissions. However, this transition hinges on a crucial but often overlooked factor: the modernization and expansion of our aging power grids across the globe. For decades the backbone of our electricity delivery system has been largely static. The influx of variable renewable energy sources like solar and wind presents a new challenge. Smart Power Grid Market Development Integrating these resources effectively requires a Smarter, more Responsive grid that can handle fluctuating power generation and efficiently distribute it across vast distances. This is where a new trillion-dollar energy market growth opportunity emerges. According to a recent worldwide market study by ABI Research, global investments in public grid digitalization and transmission network expansion must exceed $4 trillion by 2030 to meet our
