May 23-25 Industry Event in San Francisco Looks Ahead to Broader Mainstream Adoption and Growth Opportunities for the Connected Home

Peter Radsliff, VP Marketing, Arrayent Inc.REDWOOD CITY, CA – May 9, 2017—Arrayent Inc. today announced its participation in CONNECTIONS™: The Premier Connected Home Conference, to be held May 23-25 at the Hyatt Regency San Francisco Airport. Arrayent VP Peter Radsliff will share his views on the pre-show research workshops panel entitled “Industry Insights: Growth and Business Models” on Tuesday, May 23. Arrayent—the IoT cloud chosen by trusted brands—is also a proud sponsor of the 21st annual confab presented by market researcher, Parks Associates.

“IoT provides an incredible opportunity for manufacturers to create new product categories and reshape the competitive land-scape,” noted Radsliff. “Coupling new connected product user experiences with innovative business models can have as big an effect as digital music downloads had on the music industry—with just as many new winners and losers.” Radsliff will focus his discussion on how manufacturers can use IoT to transform their businesses and gain strategic advantage in the Internet’s latest land grab.

The CONNECTIONS™ agenda focuses on the changing consumer IoT markets for smart home, connected entertainment, digital health, smart energy, and mobile apps & services. According to Parks Associates, 26% of all broadband homes now own a smart home device and 73% of U.S. broadband households connect one or more in-home entertainment devices to the Internet. “There is an abundance of possibilities for new use case scenarios in the connec-ted home,” commented Tom Kerber, Director of IoT Strategy, Parks Associates. “CONNEC-TIONS explores new ways the industry can work together to add value to offerings through unique partnerships, targeted marketing messages, and emerging sectors.”
