Intelligence and insights for the smart-home industryMay 2021
Welcome to Plume IQ, our monthly reveal of data-driven intelligence and consumer insights from more than 2.5 billion connected devices, and over 48 million locations, managed by Plume’s cloud platform.
How rapidly are home networks growing?
The rapid expansion of home networks can present many issues for Communications Service Providers (CSPs) who must deliver flawless subscriber experiences to an ever-growing number of devices. Following an analysis of our data, we can reveal that Plume households are adding significantly more connected devices—in April 2021, 50% of homes had 19 devices or more (up 27% year-over-year), while the top 10% of homes exceeded 41 devices (up 24% year-over-year). The high device count and high growth rate means that sophisticated cloud-based WiFi management and the higher-capacity features of WiFi 6 are a necessity.
