Cable digitization to pave way for cable broadband penetration

Telecom Lead India: Cable digitization efforts in developing economies will be a key driver for cable broadband penetration worldwide.

The $50 billion mark in 2017

Cable digitization will be giving service providers access to more lucrative markets with service earnings reaching the $50 billion mark in 2017.

Cable innovation's adoption of DOCSIS 3.0, with higher maximum speeds than DSL, is key competitive strength against Telco's offering only DSL service in the United States, Canada and parts of Western Europe.

Looking to straightway generation bandwidth-hogging services, including 3DTV and 4K video resolutions, research providers are working with operators to prove out the then and there generations of DOCSIS. DOCSIS 3.1 focuses on upstream channel bonding for higher upload speeds.

Cable operators in developing regions are entering the market for broadband services using the latest technologies - often leapfrogging older protocols.

Cable MSOs' ability to offer traditional video services, broadband services, and digital VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) services gives cable vendors a triple-play offering that has attracted a large number of consumers.

As of 2011, China accounted for 57 percent of subscribers in the Asia-Pacific region. Chinese government investment and cable digitization initiative in an effort promote interplay between TV broadcasters, telecom carriers and Internet operators have been instrumental in this development.
