Following the broadband money

Hype-rthermia warning

with 3 comments

It’s always a pleasure to read Gartner’s Hype Cycle review, which reports on where we are in the adoption of the latest and greatest technology.

As you can see from the graph, there are a lot of new apps that depend on networks, and in particular, in higher capacity networks than we have today. Which is why Gartner reckons it’s going to be two to 10 years before they become mainstream, if we don’t die of Hype-rthermia before then.

  1. Some idea of bandwidth requirements would be interesting and how this affects local access from properties and the core networks.

    Which ones depend on higher capacity networks and where are they not available today?

    • Indeed. Where are the maps? The question I have is why any telco wants to put IPTV down its pipes. Give video distribution to the satellites and buy shares in the birds.

      • IPTV for video on demand like iPlayer?
