Home “bandwidth budget” growing “Bandwidth budget” is total pipe size needed to accommodate all the information being sent around the home – Includes bits from all the things that people want to interconnect Just like any budget, it keeps expanding! – People want to connect more devices • Not just PCs, but digital camcorders, MP 3 players, PVRs, games, . . – Each device is getting richer information • Digital cameras going from 4 to 6 to 8 megapixels • TV going from standard definition to high definition • Computer files going from data to incorporate video, special effects Consumer interest in entertainment will keep driving bandwidth to and within the home 14 Copyright © 2003, System Dynamics Inc.
Challenges – Bandwidth and Symmetry Most broadband access designed for Web browsing – Relatively low speed both ways – Highly asymmetric, biased downstream Many new applications symmetric, some require high speed – Telephony – Video conferencing – Exchanging pictures and videos Optical fiber is good fit for new applications – Very high speed – typically at least 100 Mbps/home – Symmetric 15 Copyright © 2003, System Dynamics Inc.
Challenges – The “Triple Play” North American cable operators will all offer “full bundle”: – Video: broadcast and VOD – Data: high-speed Internet access – Voice: primary service, largely packet-switched (Packet. Cable™) New optical fiber providers add even more – Fast. Web: Videoconferencing Will be challenge to incumbents – Lost customers are hard to win back – Hard to respond quickly with competitive video services 16 Copyright © 2003, System Dynamics Inc.
Summary Broadband will be taken for granted - like electricity Will extend to all media and consumer electronics—becoming integrated into consumers’ lives The specifics will vary by country and culture Customer expectations will drive bandwidth and symmetry Incumbents will face growing pressure from competitors, customers and communities to meet these expectations “Coming events cast their shadows before. ” Thomas Campbell 17 Copyright © 2003, System Dynamics Inc.
