IDC Talks Faster Broadband

Posted: 14th Apr, 2005 By: MarkJ
Analysts IDC have begun predicting how a new generation of faster broadband technologies (20Mbps +/-) could enable ISP's to offer specialised multimedia services. Such products will also drive new hardware sales:

Analyst firm IDC predicts that the addition of VoIP and high-definition video services will remain a top priority for many carriers and cable providers worldwide.

"The ability to support faster speeds over 20Mbps, improved quality of service features, and increased security will fuel demand for a new breed of chip products that will be at the heart of next-generation broadband designs," said Sean Lavey, a programme manager in IDC's semiconductor research group.

He added that more highly integrated copper-based DSL and cable modem chips, along with lower cost and more standardised fibre-based and optical modules, will drive broadband equipment upgrades.


The IDC highlighted ADSL2+ as potentially being one of the most heavily adopted deployments, which would appear to tally with recent UK announcements. More @ VNUNet.
