Create new revenue streams
by managing the Smart Home.

How can you turn smart home complexity into revenue?

Setting up smart home devices can be challenging for consumers. According to Parks Associates:

  • There is an average of 9.1 connected devices per U.S. broadband home;
  • 26% of U.S. broadband households own at least one smart home device;
  • Annual sales of smart home devices in the U.S. could reach 442 million units by 2020; and
  • Approximately half of smart device owners experience problems when setting up their devices.

With this influx of smart home devices, it’s time for service providers to leverage their hard-won position in the home network. Don’t get relegated to a connectivity provider, all while bearing the burden of increasingly complex support calls. Transform your business model instead.

Customers are talking about EXOS

“We are excited by the recent EXOS announcement. We believe that EXOS will allow us to take the next step by helping us tame the complexity of IoT for our subscribers.”

– Jeff Leslie, president and CEO of ITS Telecom

“The majority of calls coming into our customer care team are related to Wi-Fi and smart home frustrations. These calls are often a result of consumer class devices that are too complex for our subscribers to manage themselves...while these calls are costly and time consuming, our subscribers expect a quality broadband experience no matter where they purchased their devices. With EXOS and Calix Cloud, we can turn this challenge into an opportunity with managed services that will exceed the expectations of our subscribers and allow us to quickly bring new innovations to market, all while reducing our support costs.”

-- Stephen Janz, CFO, South Central Communications    

“Software platforms increasingly underlie every
service, application, and device we use each day.”
