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

Feb 07, 2013 (M2 PRESSWIRE via COMTEX) -- Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/wsr4pd/the_fight_for) 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.

Who should read this report Telephone companies, cable companies, broadband suppliers, equipment and software vendors to these companies, pay TV operators, IPTV companies, TV and device manufacturers, makers of set-top boxes, chipset makers and the infrastructure that delivers video to the home, financial analysts and industry consultants and observers.

Oracle in Enterprise Communications

Most in the industry have heard of the acquisition of Acme Packet by Oracle. What you may not know is that Oracle has a number of telecommunications products including a UC suite, WebRTC Session Controller, and Operations monitoring tools. Oracle is pursuing both the enterprise and service provider.

Featured Whitepapers

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services. Later we will mention ad-hoc WebRTC attacks and protection mechanisms, to close with an overview of identity management solutions.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Delivering Enterprise-Class Communications with WebRTC

WebRTC is an emerging industry standard for enabling Web browsers with real-time communications capabilities. It enables enterprises to enhance Web sites, empower BYOD users, and improve video collaboration and on-line meetings, to name but a few examples.

WebRTC Report Extract Reprint

This document examines the growing important of WebRTC, both generally and for telecom service providers. It considers the expanding range of use-cases, the multiple layers of interoperability likely to be desired by telcos, and some implications in terms of network integration and mobility.


Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services

The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.


The Oracle Communications WebRTC Session Controller enables communications service providers (CSPs) and enterprises to offer WebRTC services – from virtually any device, across virtually any network – with carrier-grade reliability and security.

- Summary


Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
