The Fight for Consumer Broadband Supremacy: How Telcos Are Getting Their Broadband Mojo Back

Feb 07, 2013 (M2 PRESSWIRE via COMTEX) -- Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "The Fight for Consumer Broadband Supremacy: How Telcos Are Getting Their Broadband Mojo Back" report to their offering.

A seemingly insatiable demand for streaming and data is putting more strain on broadband suppliers than ever before. It is not inconceivable for a modern home to require speeds of 50Mbps in order to fully experience the range of simultaneous HD video and data streaming on multiple devices such as smart TVs, Blu-ray players, gaming consoles, tablets, smartphones, etc.

Meanwhile, advances in such fields as home health, premises monitoring, remote education and 4K Ultra HD TV could easily see a household needing 100Mbps in the not too distant future.

For telcos, getting past the magic 25-40 Mbps speed barrier has been expensive and difficult. Heavy reliance on copper networks has meant going down the costly route of building all new fiber networks.

Cablecos and their suppliers of DOCSIS are already providing these speeds.

They are confidently offering speeds of up to 100 Mbps over original networks simply by making network gear changes in distribution offices and by installing new modems in homes.

The Fight for Consumer Broadband Supremacy: How Telcos Are Getting Their Broadband Mojo Back' analyzes trends affecting the battle to gain lucrative broadband subscriptions. The 57-page report argues that the miracles' occurring in twisted pair copper wire technology are tipping the balance of power in favor of telephone companies.

The report explains important developments in such technologies as VDSL2 Vectoring, DSM, G.Fast, FTTdp and DSL Rings. These recent advances now allow the world's telcos to offer DOCSIS- and fiber-like speeds over their existing copper wire connections, thus saving billions in fiber deployment costs.

This report: 1) Uses plain language to describe these latest broadband technologies and explains their significance for the rest of the digital media industry.

2) Details recent implementations at such companies as AT&T, Deutsche Telekom, Verizon, BT, Belgacom, KPN, etc.

3) Provides a complete explanation of the miracle of VDSL2 Vectoring', its importance to telcos and the products and alliances that are being offered by chip makers, broadband, vendors, STB manufacturers and software developers (such as Alcatel-Lucent, Broadcom, ASSIA, Lantiq, ZTE and MediaTek).

4) Shows how home networks and digital media devices like STBs and modems are being adapted to conform to new exterior broadband standards.
