A few years ago, the idea of cloud-based digital video recording (DVR) was an aspiration. Today, while the technology is still relatively new, it’s already seeing broad adoption in the market. In a recent webcast conducted with Parks Associates, attendees revealed the breadth of cloud-based services they were already using to catch up on TV content. From basic “pause live TV” features to full cloud DVR, check out the range of cloud services already available:
There are lots of good reasons operators are moving so quickly to roll out these types of services. First, consumers want it. Read More »

Service providers everywhere are trying to simplify their networks – moving services to the cloud that are easier to roll out, can be provisioned by the customer, and enable new business models.
Cisco’s virtual managed service (vMS) solution uses a self-service online portal to give end users a simple way to select, subscribe to and activate highly secure and scalable network services – even if the underlying network is multivendor. The VMS platform service function packages includescloud VPNs for branch, site-to-site and remote access encrypted VPNs, as well as firewall and web security, all offered as a cloud-managed IT solution on a subscription basis.
End users have access to a management dashboard on which they can track the Read More »

I remember when 1 Mbps was big bandwidth. And 45 Mbps was unbelievably, outlandishly huge bandwidth. One spring day in 1995, at the headquarters of a large technology company outside of Dallas, there was excited chatter at the proverbial water cooler about the T3 access line that was being installed. A T3 line! Nearly 45 Mbps! Every thing really is bigger in Texas! We wondered what we would do with all that bandwidth, even though there were thousands of us at the location being served. Now, in 2015, the average broadband home has a 25 Mbps connection, and 20% of broadband homes worldwide have T3 speeds or higher, serving just the members of that household. And we now talk about yesterday’s data speeds Read More »
