Sixty-five million Americans depend on broadband services for work, education, entertainment and communications. But too many other Americans have no access to broadband services, according to a new telecom industry survey commissioned by Tellabs.
People are racing to install the quickest methods for accessing information over the Internet. However, the trend does not necessarily translate into unbridled growth for broadband users. At least one industry analyst is sounding cautionary bells.
Coupled with impressive growth in its broadband subscriber base, the Asia/Pacific region is standing at the forefront of the fiber to the home/node/business (FTTx) evolution, according to the high-tech market research firm In-Stat, Scottsdale, Ariz.
Broadband services have come a long way. The services expanded from simply high-speed Internet access to more entertainment options and voice features over Internet protocol. Homeowners may want to subscribe to some of these services.
According to Energybiz, the electricity industry has viewed broadband over powerline (BPL) technology as an attractive revenue generator. Several successful technology trials of BPL systems have been conducted. The industry is exploring using BPL for a variety of applications.
According to the Redwood City, California-based market research firm, Dell’Oro Group, the Ethernet switch market will grow steadily over the next five years; revenues are expected to reach $19 billion by the year 2011.
The number of US households subscribing to broadband over power line (BPL) services will increase from 400,000 in 2007 to 2,500,000 by 2011, according to “FTTx and BPL: Analysis and Outlook.” This report from Parks Associates finds consumer and competitive demands will lead to a strong growth rate i
Extending broadband services to more customers is a priority for telecommunications and cable television companies who are locked in a fierce battle to consolidate and expand their shares of the high-speed Internet market and, with it, other bundled services; fiber optic technology is a key element
Which installation fits your needs? Internet protocol (IP) continues to drive business, bringing new terms to the industry. “Real-time IP” is one term that isn’t necessarily new, but continues to cause electrical contractors quite a bit of confusion.
ROUGHLY ONE-THIRD of U.S. households now subscribe to some type of broadband service, reports In-Stat, a Scottsdale, Ariz.-based market research firm. As broadband becomes more commonplace, Internet use is evolving with broader adoption of a variety of applications.
AT&T Inc. and General Growth Properties have agreed to construct a fiber to the premises (FTTP) network to deliver such services as digital TV, high-speed Internet and voice services to a 20,000-home, master-planned community near Houston.
Many technologies changed or developed in 2005 and will continue to develop through 2006. A company’s infrastructure, software, security and communication methods depend on a professionally installed and managed bottom layer of the contractor technology ladder (CTL).
According to what I hear, broadband over power lines (BPL) is either a winning or losing technology. It started as a winner because it was positioned as a cheaper alternative to provide high-speed, broadband Internet access to homes and businesses by using the existing power grid infrastructure.
Ever since Former Federal Communication Commission (FCC) chair Michael Powell said broadband over power line technology (BPL) was “the great broadband hope,” interest in the technology has grown. Powell's comments came on the heels of the FCC's ruling on Oct.
If your firm does telecomm work, this is worth reading. Although it has been talked about for several decades, modulated radio frequency communications over power lines never really took off because there were difficult technical challenges and no cost-effective solutions. No more.
