Home bandwidth budget growing l.jpg
Home “bandwidth budget” growing Service Providers

  • “Bandwidth budget” is total pipe size needed to accommodate all the information being sent around the home

    • Includes bits from all the things that people want to interconnect

  • Just like any budget, it keeps expanding!

    • People want to connect more devices

      • Not just PCs, but digital camcorders, MP3 players, PVRs, games,..

    • Each device is getting richer information

      • Digital cameras going from 4 to 6 to 8 megapixels

      • TV going from standard definition to high definition

      • Computer files going from data to incorporate video, special effects

  • Consumer interest in entertainment will keep driving bandwidth to and within the home


Challenges bandwidth and symmetry l.jpg
Challenges – Bandwidth and Symmetry Service Providers

  • Most broadband access designed for Web browsing

    • Relatively low speed both ways

    • Highly asymmetric, biased downstream

  • Many new applications symmetric, some require high speed

    • Telephony

    • Video conferencing

    • Exchanging pictures and videos

  • Optical fiber is good fit for new applications

    • Very high speed – typically at least 100 Mbps/home

    • Symmetric


Challenges the triple play l.jpg
Challenges – The “Triple Play” Service Providers

  • North American cable operators will all offer “full bundle”:

    • Video: broadcast and VOD

    • Data: high-speed Internet access

    • Voice: primary service, largely packet-switched (PacketCable™)

  • New optical fiber providers add even more

    • FastWeb: Videoconferencing

  • Will be challenge to incumbents

    • Lost customers are hard to win back

    • Hard to respond quickly with competitive video services


Summary l.jpg
Summary Service Providers

  • Broadband will be taken for granted - like electricity

  • Will extend to all media and consumer electronics—becoming integrated into consumers’ lives

  • The specifics will vary by country and culture

  • Customer expectations will drive bandwidth and symmetry

  • Incumbents will face growing pressure from competitors, customers and communities to meet these expectations

  • “Coming events cast their shadows before.” Thomas Campbell
