Editor's Note: Wishing you all a great year in 2006!

The end of the year got us thinking about the changes in our industry over the past decade.

Heard on the Net

News about People and Companies influencing The Broadband Home

Briefly Noted: Updates, Observations and Trends

Each month, we collect miscellaneous happenings, studies, trends or observations you might have missed. This month we feature a video blog for mobile videophones, mobile wireless wins for IPWireless, and lots more "video on the go".

Switching Channels at TelcoTV

We came away from TelcoTV feeling that IPTV is at the tipping point. The biggest telcos are all either committed to moving forward at scale, or are close to a commitment. Their traditional vendors are playing a major role. Microsoft also aspires to play a key role, but was all but invisible at the show.

Lucent Shines a Light On IMS

We visited Lucent to learn more about IMS and came away impressed with its critical role in creating "blended services". AT&T appears to agree.

Moving IPTV Around the Home: An Interview With Coaxsys

We interviewed Coaxsys to learn about their approach to home networking over existing coaxial cable. Many telcos think this is a good approach to connect the home gateway to IPTV set-top boxes on each TV.

Your Voice -- Readers Comments

We heard from our readers about the increasing use of "WiMAX" as a generic term for mobile broadband.

Upcoming Conferences

When year-end approaches it means different things to different people. But to those interested in technology it means that the annual CES Show is not far off. We'll be there next month and hope to say hi to some of you who also attend.
