Broadband Library: Two Sides to Every Story: Spring 2007 (March)

Broadband Library is distributed quarterly to all members of the Society of Cable Telecommunications Engineers (SCTE). Beginning in early 2007, our column "Two Sides to Every Story" has used opposing pages to present contrasting viewpoints on a cable/telecom industry topic.

Our first column—in the Spring 2007 issue—debates the reality of the broadband home.

In "The Broadband Home is Here!", Dave says "The world we envisioned seven years ago is nearly here. All the key technologies for the Broadband Home are available and the market is growing rapidly." He concludes "Soon we . . . will finally be able to enjoy all the benefits of the Broadband Home we described seven years ago!"

In "Not So Fast!", Sandy argues the opposite side. Starting with "I donít want to feel like an idiot," she says right now it's much too hard to hook up and use these devices "especially those involving connection with HD video. . . . We know that the industry is working on solutions to many of these problems and fervently hope they will come soon."
