DSL and cable – nearly everywhere from mid-sized towns to deep in the heart of the largest metropolitan centers. Yet these two technologies differ vastly in their technology, capabilities and origins.
DSL’s advantage comes in its origins – providing fail-safe voice services over an infrastructure that reaches every american. DSL has the ability to roll out relatively quickly, but there is a cost and limitation in reach. Although DSL speeds may not match it’s fiber and cable competitors, it is more scalable and provides a higher level of service as each customer is directly connected on their own dedicated connection. DSL is working to provide television channels and digital content over its infrastructure, but is still very preliminary for the most cutting-edge telcos. We are familiar with and have deployed ADSL technologies in addition to bonded copper solutions.
Separately Cable’s advantage of origin is the ability to provide video services. Cable is not ubiquitous like telephone, there are communities that have yet to be deployed. But if you are lucky enough to be connected to a broadband-enabled cable system, chances are you have access to some excellent speeds and will for some time. You already have access to digital video content and many cable providers even provide digital phone service as well. Cable has been able to leap ahead and prove dominant in the triple-play market. We are also skilled in DOCSIS technologies, deployments and business planning.
