Intergrated House.JPGDid you know that every FiOS household has a 175 megabit per second local area network built into it as part of the FiOS service?

Have you ever thought about how cool it would be to put applications like home security, medical monitoring or energy management right onto the smart router we install, and then have peripheral devices feed data into those apps wirelessly?

Stacey Higginbotham of technology blog GigaOM talked with Verizon SVP of Technology Mark Wegleitner about future FiOS services in a recent interview at the Fiber to the Home Conference in Houston.

Mark was around when Verizon decided to go with fiber all the way to the home, and he shares some of his perspective on that decision as well.

You can see a video of the interview here.  Enjoy it and share it with your friends.
